Many famous guests stayed at the hotel, such as Lon Chaney, John F. Kennedy, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Vince Lombardi. It was also where Senator Eugene McCarthy - then running for president in the 1968 Democratic Primary - was given the news by Senator Ted Kennedy, that his brother Robert F. Kennedy, would be announcing his presidential run the following day.[4] It was later turned into a senior residence as the Port Plaza Towers, connected to the former mall of the same name.
