Although legal buffs may find the Richard H. Chambers Courthouse, also the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, interesting for other reasons, the real attraction here is the building the court is housed in. That, of course, is the historic Vista Del Arroyo Hotel, constructed in 1903. This luxury resort hotel hosted wealthy easterners for many years before it closed down. Luckily, restoration of the hotel was completed in 1985 for its current use, and much of the original features are largely intact. Self-guided tours of the main floor are available by asking the marshal at the front desk for a tour brochure. For groups of 10 or more, please call the court clerk to make reservations.
- Open Hours: Monday to Sunday from 08:30 AM to 05:00 PM
