With 165 rooms, an Olympic-size swimming pool with five diving boards, and an underwater window, it was a palace of splendor. Although it remained a glamorous desert getaway for years, thriving even throughout the Great Depression, El Mirador Hotel eventually closed. The buildings were sold to, the Desert Regional Medical Center which still stands today. The main hotel and tower would remain standing until July 1989.
