Salt Air Hotel

Manufacturer: Mayer China
User: Salt Air Hotel
Distributor: Mitchell Woodbury Co., Boston
Date: circa 1913 - 1920s
Notes: One of the very first hotels in West Palm Beach, Florida was located on Narcissus Street. According to the Palm Beach County History Museum: "the 74-room Hotel Salt Air was built in 1913 by Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Weihe to siphon off the middle-class tourist trade that couldn't afford the tonier Palm Beach hotels."

The hotel closed some time after 1956.

On the site of the old Salt Air Hotel, a Holiday Inn was built which was razed in 1994.
