Re: what does this mean? hotel guest


You can do a google search for the El Cortez, San Diego and find a wealth of information on line.

In addition to hotel rooms an apartment hotel has suites for rent at a monthly or longer rate.

In 1928, El Cortez had 85 apartment suites, available to rent for $100 per month, and 32 hotel rooms for $5 per day.

The first line (as best as I can read it) says:

The following persons enumerated in the El Cortez Hotel block #3558.


My possible relatives and the whole page says hotel guest.   What does that mean?


I looked at Wikipedia and it says apartment-hotel.   Would that be similar to condominiums today?


Thank you,   Trudy Barch,  Florida
