The Best Historical Hotels in America
Historical hotels anywhere, in any country, are part of the heritage of that country and to some extent it is a heritage of the world as well. Hence, when it comes to historical hotels, it is important that these old, majestic and memorable properties be preserved and continued to function so that the generations to come will know its true value, importance and its role on significant events through pages of history.

With this intention in mind, in USA, in 1989, the National Trust for Historic Preservation launched the Historic Hotels of America with the objective of promoting heritage tourism. In this program they have identified over 200 properties across the states, under the guidelines of historic integrity, architecture and ambiance. In order to be selected for this program, a hotel requires being at least 50 years old, listed or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places or recognized locally as having historic significance.

The Algonquin Hotel
With the inception of this property dating back to the year 1901, this hotel has been a popular place for many reasons. Famously, this property was once considered a haven for celebrities like Douglas Fairbanks, H.L. Mencken, Dorothy Parker and William Faulkner. Next, even though located minutes from Times Square in NYC, at a prime location, this property doesn't fail to provide its guests with a restful, calm retreat from the city's hustle and bustle. Recently, this property was renovated to include new features like, high speed internet and plasma TVs. However, this renovation has not hampered the classic elegance and ambience of this great property.

Black Point Inn
Located in Scarborough, Maine, ever since 1878 the Black Point Inn has been charming visitors with its cozy antique-filled rooms and old world sophistication. Each guest room is uniquely decorated, offering themes to suit every fancy such as the Music Room, the Library and the Sun Porch. Guests are invited to warm themselves by the fire in the lobby, play a game of chess in comfortable armchairs overlooking the ocean, or wander the same ruggedly beautiful grounds that inspired painter Winslow Homer when he was a guest.

Casa Marina
The timing of the Casa Marina's opening couldn't have been better; it was 1924 and Jacksonville Beach was the trendy new hot spot on the Florida coast, drawing US Presidents, British royalty, and celebrities as diverse as John D. Rockefeller and Al Capone. The reason why Casa Marina was chosen was mainly for their lodgings, lured by its romantic Spanish-Mediterranean charm. Even after a careful renovation, the hotel still reflects the mindset of The Roaring 20's with its fun-loving spirit of casual elegance.

The Jefferson Hotel
This marvelous historic property which features the best of the best is famed and renowned for its distinguished guest list. Out of the long nature of the list of celebrities who have stayed in this great hotel, it's right to give prominence first to the 11 US Presidents, Sir Edmund Hillary, F Scott Fitzgerald. Joining them is a long list of actresses and actors, where there are too many to name. Main attractions of the hotel, attracting the famous and not so famous, to this very day include, the stunning architecture including a 36-step carpeted marble staircase strikingly similar to the one featured in the film Gone With the Wind.
