Sixth and Guadalupe Location History

In the early 1920s, the Alamo Hotel was built on this block. At one point, the hotel was known for its unfortunate popularity as a place for suicides. After the Alamo Hotel was demolished in 1984, an Extended Stay America hotel opened on the same site in 2000, marking 16 years since the Alamo Hotel’s demolition.
