Historic Design

The 24-acre Ambassador Hotel complex, a favorite of 20th century Hollywood, Presidents, and other dignitaries, was demolished in 2006.  Elements of Myron Hunt’s famous hotel were incorporated in the new design, including:

  • The hotel’s legendary Cocoanut Grove is a 582-seat theatre.

  • The hotel’s 1940’s era Paul R. Williams-designed coffee shop serves as a teachers’ lounge.

  • The intricate vaulted ceiling of the hotel’s Embassy Ballroom (the site of Robert F. Kennedy’s 1968 Primary victory speech and assassination) was reconstructed as the library for secondary students. 

The Library was recently named in honor of Paul Schrade who was instrumental in the struggle to acquire the property and to build Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools.
