In exchange for a $4.9-million contribution to a nonprofit organization aimed at conserving historic school buildings in Los Angeles, the LA Conservancy has agreed to drop all legal battles to save the historic Ambassador Hotel on Wilshire Boulevard. "We will always believe that the Ambassador Hotel represents a tragic missed opportunity," said conservancy Executive Director Linda Dishman. "But having fought the good fight and lost, we decided to create something lasting."
