SAN DIEGO — A stunning transformation was completed in downtown San Diego after the former Army-Navy YMCA on Broadway was turned into a boutique hotel.

The YMCA launched in 1924 to serve the fast-growing population of military members in San Diego. It was purchased in 2014 and given an $80-million makeover.
