Heights History: Picture This!

Built in 1923, the Alcazar Hotel at Surrey and Derbyshire roads was billed as “Cleveland’s most desirable residential hotel.” Designed in the Spanish-Moorish eclectic style, the Alcazar is reminiscent of Florida hotels built in the 1880s for Henry Flagler. Special guests of the hotel included George Gershwin, Jack Benny and Mary Martin. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and designated a Cleveland Heights Landmark, the Alcazar Hotel still runs as a residential hotel.
