Notes
Survey number HABS AZ-149-A
Building/structure dates: 1929 initial construction
Significance: The original bathhouse and cabanas at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel are important to recognize for three main reasons. First, they are an important amenity of the classic winter resort of the Salt River Valley. Second, they are part of William Wrigley, Jr.'s only major improvement to his beloved resort, and third, they are an important example of the work of Phoenix architect and builder, Robert T. Evans.
