"Many of these legendary historic hotels were built for another purpose
such as a former castle, palace, national bank, original corporate
headquarters, army post officers housing, manor house, and even a former
department store from the 19th century," said Lawrence
Horwitz, Executive Director, Historic Hotels of America and Historic
Hotels Worldwide. "These iconic historic hotels demonstrate the
tremendous stewardship of their owners, leadership, and employees in
preserving these wonderful historic treasures and the many centuries of
stories of the people that previously lived, worked, socialized, or
visited. Many are tremendous architectural and heritage landmarks. There
is much to discover, explore, experience, and taste in and near these
wonderful historic hotels."
