Cortez Hill

Cortez Hill is a neighborhood located in north-east Downtown San Diego, California.

Named after the historic El Cortez Hotel, this district is one of San Diego’s oldest residential neighborhoods. North of downtown’s Core and south of I-5 between Tenth Avenue and Union Street, the 111- acre Cortez Hill is two neighborhoods in one. East of Sixth Avenue rises downtown’s highest land mass, the hill dominated by the El Cortez Condominium (formerly El Cortez Hotel). West of Sixth Avenue the flatter area is known as Cortez West. The hill has drawn residents for over a century, and some of the original Victorian style dwellings of the first settlers are still present. (Information from
