A century ago, the grand Hotel Lodi was opened with a long anticipated, lavish banquet and dance that was called “the most brilliant affair in Lodi’s history.”

“From this time on we may expect to see tourists from all parts of the state make the City of Lodi a visiting place, and thus meeting the people of this city and country and spending their money here, mutually enrich and improve this section while enhancing their own fortunes,” said George McNoble, Lodi attorney and the principal speaker of the grand opening on April 30, 1915.
