When you’re trying to stand out in the Hollywood sea of hotel developments, a little history can go a long way.

It’s what investment firm Hawkins Way Capital is counting on in its renovations of the Mark Twain Hotel at 1622 North Wilcox Avenue. Although the three-story building will not house the same “down-on-their-luck” clientele that it did in the 1920s and 30s, it will retain the iconic “Hotel Mark Twain” rooftop sign, Urbanize reported.

The updated look is modeled after the hotel’s original appearance, according to John Kaliski Architects.

Upon completion, the modern boutique inn will have 62 rooms, a lobby with office space and a vending area. The development entails both interior and exterior updates. [Urbanize]Cathaleen Chen
