Opened in the center of the downtown Tucson business district, the Pioneer Hotel was home to the Tucson elite like Harold and Margaret Steinfeld, owners of a large downtown department store called Steinfeld's, who lived in a penthouse in the hotel. A disastrous fire severely damaged the building in December 1970, and the Steinfelds were among the 29 victims. The fire hastened the decline of downtown Tucson, which is going through a revival today with the help of the ambitious Rio Nuevo Redevelopment project.
