Broadview Hotel
Later Southern Illinois University's East St. Louis Center
411 E. Broadway
Architect: ?

This building, standing at the very southwestern tip of downtown, is one of the most well-preserved in the city. It was originally the Broadview Hotel, opened in 1928 and in operation until 1957. It was home to the Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville's East St Louis Center from the 1960s until the early 2000s, when the Center moved to a nearby complex of contemporary buildings.

The former hotel has been vacant and boarded since, and only escaped demolition at the request of the city council, and even so, it remains in danger. City officials hope to reopen the building as a hotel.
