This circular is an advertisement for the Hotel Vendome, designed by Jacob Lenzen and Son, and built in 1888. It was San Jose's first major hotel, and was visited by many of the country's elite including Presidents Harrison, McKinley, and Theodore Roosevelt. The brochure boasts of the Hotel Vendome's attractions, including a large swimming pool, private baths, electric lights, and running water in each room, and the local sights navigable by automobile, including Camp Fremont, Stanford University, Lick Observatory and Redwood Park. It also advertises the Blossom Trolley Trip, a 65-mile trolley pleasure ride. The Hotel Vendome was partially destroyed in the San Francisco Earthquake of April 18, 1906, but made a come-back until purchased by a real estate syndicate that razed it and sold lots for $ 1,500 each on the space previously occupied by the resort hotel.
