Here's an old vintage hotel called the Key Hotel located in Emeryville, CA. The signage surrounding this place looks like they were once neon.

This hotel also prominently features its club room and card room on site. At least it used to. The Key Hotel has been demolished as Emeryville tries to maintain its image as a high-tech city with redevelopment projects galore.
