The Louisa Hotel building was originally built in 1909 as a single room occupancy hotel. It is the only remaining building in the International District featuring the original wood-framed window bays that were once common to the era. On Christmas Eve 2013, a fire in the western portion of the building burned the roof and compromised the structure of this building.
