History Mystery
Which historic hotel was named in honor of Queen Victoria’s daughter, Princess Louise?
Historic Hotels of America® Destination Spotlight: Virginia
It is said that "Virginia is for Lovers", and we certainly agree. The small towns and scenic roads, mountain vistas and wide open beaches, and 400 years of American history actually make Virginia perfect for everyone to enjoy!
The Martha Washington Hotel & Spa (1832)
A residence for a retired War of 1812 general, a finishing school, and a hospital for wounded soldiers are just a few of the lives lived before becoming the charming historic hotel we know and love today.
The Mimslyn Inn
A brilliant example of Georgian Revival-style architecture, The Mimslyn Inn is located in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley upon a piece of land that once belonged to a historic estate known as “Aventine Hall.”
Williamsburg Inn
Located adjacent to the Colonial Williamsburg Historic Area, one of the most complete community restorations in the world, the Williamsburg Inn was built in 1937 by John D. Rockefeller Jr.
Historic Hotels Worldwide® Culinary Traditions
Gingerbread houses originated during the 16th century, and have since become a fun holiday tradition around the world. Have you ever wondered how historic hotels create these masterpieces year after year? While we can't share architectural secrets, the magic (and volume of ingredients!) behind Skytop Lodge's (1928)
life-size gingerbread house is worth every bite.
