Inscription. Completed in 1931, as a civic improvement project during the Great Depression, the Hotel De Anza was named in honor of the Spanish explorer Juan Bautista de Anza. Business and civic leaders established the San Jose Community Hotel Association which sold subscriptions locally to finance the hotel. Designed by Architect William H. Weeks and built by Carl N. Swenson, the Hotel De Anza is one of the few downtown structures that reflect Art Deco and Moderne architectural styles. In 1991 this historic landmark was completely renovated and the exterior was restored and the interior was modernized.
