Vendome San Jose History

For over forty years from 1889-1930 Hotel Vendome located on First Street a few blocks north of downtown was a centerpiece of San Jose tourism, recreation, and social life. The Hotel Vendome Company, incorporated in 1887, immediately engaged the local architectural firm of Jacob Lenzen & Son to design a grand resort hotel in the style of the new Arcadia Hotel in Santa Monica. Jacob Lenzen continued as the general contractor, completing construction by early 1889 at a total cost of $150,000. Much of Lowe’s earlier landscaping from the Belden estate formed the basis for the hotel’s grounds.  When it opened on February 7, 1889, the Hotel Vendome had 150 rooms with en suite bathrooms, steam heat, Otis elevators, a ballroom, a barbershop, banquet rooms, and kitchens. Transient rates were $2.50 to $4.00 per day, with special rates for families and permanent boarders.  The hotel is surrounded by a magnificent park of considerable extent. It consists of pines, elms, live oaks, redwoods, peppers and various other kinds of trees with palms and tropical plants and a wealth of shrubbery, combined with scores of handsome lawns. Walks wind through the park, a maze of delights. All about the grounds, and carrying out the park idea, are tree-lined street and fine residences with well-kept grounds. Bowling alleys and tennis courts furnish amusement to the guests. The hotel’s greenhouses and sprouting beds had a capacity of 30,000 plants to set out around the hotel grounds.  The Vendome Stables on the hotel grounds along San Pedro Street housed 40-60 horses of the Mount Hamilton Stage Company, operated by Fred Ross.
Fires! During its forty years of existence, the Hotel Vendome had several fires. The first, on September 7, 1889, caused only minor damage. The worst fire was on the night of September 26, 1898. Around 10:30 pm, a waiter saw sparks falling from the wing of the hotel containing the main dining room. All guests gathered their belongings and left uninjured, most being taken to the St. James Hotel. The entire fire department responded, battling the blaze through the night and into the next morning. Ten firefighters were on the third floor when a portion of the building collapsed. Three fell into the wreckage. James Nagle and Dick Williamson were injured, but Miles McDermott died — the first San José firefighter to die in the line of duty. The demise of the Hotel Vendome. Faced with competition from several modern downtown hotels and a newly relocated depot, the aging Hotel Vendome was sold to a syndicate, headed by local realtor J. Bradley Clayton, on March 26, 1930. The Hotel Vendome doors were closed on April 25, 1930, and the buildings were promptly demolished. The grounds were subdivided for a residential development known as the Vendome Grounds. The site is now the present Ayer Avenue, Losse Court, and Rankin Avenues, located adjacent to the present Japantown/Ayer light rail station on North First Street.
