Thought this was pretty interesting - The famous San Diego (Coronado) landmark, the Hotel Del Coronado! It's from the Google Earth 3D
The Hotel Del, as it is affectionately known, is one of the last surviving examples of the once-popular wooden Victorian beach resort. Architect James Reidâ€™s jumble of turrets, gables, and cupolas typified Gilded Age exuberance. Built largely by Chinese and Chinese-American laborers, the hotel is one of the oldest and largest wooden structures in California and one of the biggest resorts on the Pacific Coast of North America.
