Hotel Monte Vista100 N. San Francisco St., Flagstaff, AZ
Originally named the Community Hotel, a contest was held to find a permanent name. The winning name, Monte Vista Hotel, was submitted by a 12 year girl. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places.
A postcard that appears to be from the late 1940s actually says nothing much about the hotel except for the name, city and elevation.
Instead it promotes regional attractions like the Snow Bowl recreation area, the Coconino National Forest, Indian Reservations, Cliff Dwellings, the Petrified Forest, the San Francisco Peaks, Oak Creek Canyon, Paved roads to the Grand Canyon and the Annual All Indian Pow Wow July Fourth Holidays.
The elevation seems like an odd thing to mention.
