Eisenhower, Lyndon B. Johnson, and Gerald Ford, and singers Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley, and Roy Rogers. In addition, The El Cortez hotel was featured in the 1963 film A Ticklish Affair. Almost every longtime San Diegan has a memory of a prom, special date, or event held in the Don Room, Sky Bar or Starlight Room. On July 25, 1990, the City of San Diego's Historic Site Board declared the building to be "historic", which prevented it from being demolished.
