Till the Great Fire of 1917 most of the city first class and luxury hotels were situated in the French Quarter (in a place very close to the city port that is) and the nearby areas (e.g. Liberty Square and Nikis Avenue). After 1917 most of the hotels in these areas were destroyed by the fire. Following the Hebrard Plan most of the city's new Hotels were built in Egnatia Street and the nearby areas (namely in Antigonidon, Leondos Sofou, Singrou, Svoronou, Ptolemeon, Zaliki and Olimbou streets) while a few (as a rule more luxurious than those of Egnatia street) were built in Ayias Sofias, Mitropoleos, Komninon, Venizelou and Tsimiski streets. About 22 of them are still in operation.
