The building’s original facade featured a mix of colonial and neoclassical influences, a feature it retains today.
Although it began as a home for immigrants, the building underwent several changes and passed through several owners. Probably the most notable of these was when the building became O’Brien’s Seafood Restaurant, it was a restaurant and Jazz club that was frequented by Classic Hollywood celebrities like John Wayne, who owned a sports and fishing boat, actor Robert Mitchum and author Ernest Hemingway. When the O’Brien’s owner passed away in the late 1950s the property was abandoned and so it remained until early 2005.

Conchita Valadés, originally from Mazatlan, after seeing the abandoned property and its spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean, fell completely in love with it and decided to take the challenge of restoring it and turning it into a boutique hotel. After two years of hard work and tireless efforts to revive the property to its original glory, Casa Lucila Hotel Boutique opened its doors on October 13, 2007.
Conchita decided to name Casa Lucila in honor of her mother Lucila Valdez de Valadés. And she gave the name of her sisters to each room.
In 2018 Grupo Arhe takes over the property, continuing with the warmth and service that distinguish it today.
