The Padre Hotel is a historical landmark hotel located on the corner of 18th and "H" streets in Bakersfield, California. Originally constructed in 1928 as a luxury hotel and restaurant, the eight-story building recently went through an extensive renovation and reopened in 2010.[3] The Padre Hotel now features 112 rooms and suites, several meeting spaces, a restaurant, a bar, a cafe, a bistro, and an outdoor bar with a cabana and firepits. The Padre Hotel has an on-site caterer and can accommodate a variety of special events. Guests of the hotel are required to be 21 years of age, unless accompanied by an adult. [4]
