How to Choose a Good Hotel
For anyone who is encountering the decision of choosing a good historic hotel has to give mind to certain aspects. Firstly, due to the fact that people can fool you in offering a historic hotel when it is actually not, it is important that you find a way to determine the legitimacy and validity of the offered hotel.

You might think that this process of establishing the true identity of a historic hotel is an arduous one, however, it is not so. In the U.S. and in Europe, two prestigious establishments have already identified and listed historic properties throughout their geographical boundaries.

With respect to the U.S., this group is called the Historic Hotels of America. Established in the year 1989, by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Historic Hotels of America was launched 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 to 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. Hence, it is clear that with the help of this group, anyone can find and go for that perfect historic experience, far away from the modern LCD TVs and high speed internet, even though those facilities are available at your request at these locations.

Next, in Europe, organized and established similar to the U.S. version. Historic Hotels of Europe has been created "with the objective of promoting global awareness for the 17 finest historic hotels associations through a co-operative marketing strategy. The hotels in the association represent their countries' national cultural traditions, historic heritage and architecture. Every property within the Historic Hotels has its own distinctive style and character, and guests will be sure to enjoy a variety of experiences when traveling from country to country and staying at our member hotels." This group operates historic hotels in countries all over the continent where their elite members come from countries, such as, France, Italy, Greece, U.K. and many more marvelous nations of the Old World.

With sufficient knowledge of choosing the right historic hotel for you, it is impressive to get a scoop of the experiences that you will encounter in an historic property.

The Jefferson Hotel in Richmond, Virginia is one such historic property that will truly make you cherish the stay of each inch of space in this historic of historic properties. As a city hotel with luxurious modern touches this marvelous hotel is a behemoth Beaux Arts and Renaissance Revival structure with a grand "Gone with the Wind" staircase and stunning stained-glass skylights. The rooms and amenities aren't much different from those found in internationally known five-star hotels, but can the Peninsula Hong Kong say that alligators once roamed its lobby? Or that Bill Bojangles Robinson's dancing career was launched when he tap-danced his way across the hotel restaurant floor after "accidentally" spilling soup on an influential producer?
