The Monarch is based in an industrial structure dating back to 1929, built in the Spanish Colonial Revival style by the renowned art deco architect, Leslie S. Hogden. The building was originally an enclosed car park garage for the nearby Bigelow Hotel. With 60,000 square feet of space and internal ramps to multiple levels, the garage could park over 200 cars indoors away from inclement weather. This type of enclosed garage ceased to be built soon after World War 2. The uniqueness of the building in Ogden was recognized with a place on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012.
