I'm squinting at the vertical sign on the building, and it says 'St. Francis Hotel'. Was it known informally as the Roxy Hotel, or did it change names later?

Informally yes. In the 1920s, I think  St Francis Hotel used to be located in the heart of Queen's Road Central.

The original St Francis Hotel used to be located on Queen's Rd Central opposite Duddell St.

 

Roxy is the name of the adjacent theatre.

Hi there,

This hotel still exist in the 1960's.  I could not remember exactly when it was closed down but it should be more or less the same time when the Roxy was closed and demolished.

Best Regards,
