There has been a hotel at this location for most of the last 125 years, dating to the Pacific Hotel, which opened in 1883. The Desert Hotel succeeded it in 1890. That was replaced by the Desert Sahara Motor Hotel in 1962. Developer Walt Worthy completed the current structure as a companion to his nearby Davenport Hotel in the fall of 2006.
