The Villa Hotel and Plaza

This page will have more information and photos from the Villa Hotel, which was the focal point of the Villa Plaza, in which The LANAI restaurant was contained.  Also in the same plaza were another restaurant, the Villa Chartier, and Lanai Liquors.  Both of these are now gone as well, but the Villa Hotel still remains, and is in fact a landmark in its own right.  The Villa Hotel was acquired by Radisson and became "the Radisson Villa" in January 2004.  More photos to come, but for now you can read an article from the November 1957 issue of The Hotel Monthly, spotlighting the Villa Hotel.  This includes some interesting photos and text, along with some dry hospitality industry information.
