The Destruction Of The Cathedral Hill Hotel
With the demolition of the old Jack Tar/Cathedral Hill Hotel underway in order to make room for CPMC’s Cathedral Hill Medical Center to rise, a plugged-in tipster delivers a few fantastic photos of the hotel's demise. The recreation deck is quickly disappearing, the clubhouse/ballroom is only a shell, and the hotel's swimming pool is history. Click either of the images to enlarge.

Thx for the snaps.
A cool building but falling for a better reason.

Just recently watched "The Conversation". The early Coppola movie with Gene Hackman and a critical part of the movie was filmed there.

The Haz material are being removed from inside the hotel. The real demo will start in January.
This project is finally moving forward.

Back in my youth when the temps soared to 80 degrees and above, our "dip & drip" club would meet here, where we cooled off in the roof top pool.
