Back when it was still called Hotel Tower.
There has been a Hotel with the word “Tower” in its name on this spot for more than a century. I can’t find enough online historical evidence, but before the current name “Tower Suites”, it was the Hotel Tower for many years, and prior to that it was the Tower Hotel. I saw an 1909 Ad that claimed that “The Tower is the oldest and Best Hostelry on the Northern Coast of South America”. 🙂
