Restoring a Tradition

With much fanfare, the luxurious Leamington Hotel in downtown Oakland first opened its doors to traveling executives in 1926. Declared “an architectural masterpiece,” the Spanish-style building’s architect, W.H. Weeks, spent over $2 million to incorporate “every modern idea in the hotel construction.” In those days, modern, ideas included a $30,000 pipe organ, a complete local information bureau for guest, and a fully-attended children’s playroom. Soon, the whole Hotel became a playroom for the socially prominent by hosting opulent gatherings for Oakland’s most wealthy citizens.

One of the “Grand Dames” of East Bay hospitality, the Hotel was fated to have several owners during its history. J. K. Leaming sold it four years after building it, and in 1945 it underwent a grand-scale remodeling, compliments of its new owners. Soon after, changing times and changing designs prodded the slow but eventual decline of this once-gleaming jewel. In 1981, the Leamington doors were closed, a result of neglect which caused its bankruptcy.

Fortunately, Oakland-based Portfolio Property Investors recognized that the Leamington legend should not be allowed to die. With help from the City of Oakland, PPI purchased the building restoring it and converting it into first-class retail and office suites. The transformation began in January 1983. The outside retained its terra cotta charm, but the interiors, incorporated the most modern ideas in design and construction. Below the new atrium and skylight will sparkle oak, marble, brass and bronze detailing.

Once a symbol of gracious hospitality and elegance, the revitalized Leamington opened its doors again…and the legend continues.
