The Hotel De Anza was opened on May 28, 1931 by Will R. Conway, an experienced hotelman. The $48,000 cost was partly financed by Calexico citizens. It was opened with a big celebration after being built in only four month. The hotel featured three dance floors, inlaid tile, an innovative air conditioning system and plumbing for ice water. Hotel De Anza was frequented by Hollywood celebrities gambling in Mexico during prohibition in the USA. Following the end of prohibition in 1933 the hotel eventually fell into disrepair. In 1966 it was purchased by rancher Harold H. Johnson and his wife Alice who restored its charm. In 1997 it was converted to a residential and office complex.
