A portion of this building was built in 1880 and served as the Grand Hotel. In 1930 the current edifice was completed. It was designed by architect Paul Frederick Olsen of the firm Frank Perry of Chicago.

From the University of Wisconsin's Digital Collection:
"The Monterey was Janesville's last major hotel building and it remains its most imposing. The six-story Art Deco structure is decorated in tan terra cotta that flows across the building's exterior and caps the tower and parapets of the building. Gold leaf is baked into the black terra cotta details at the second floor. The resulting architectural statement is very urban, and reflects hotel construction trends of the period, particularly in larger cities such as Milwaukee."

Style: Art Deco

Structure Type: Commercial/Retail

Architect: Paul Frederick Olsen
