What is a Historical Hotel
As with any other industry it is the demand shown by the consumers which makes the hospitality industry grow. The consumer demand for historic hotels have been increasing during the past few years. Guests are continually searching for experiences in hotels which have historic heritage in place of the hotels with the modern WiFi's and large slim TV's.

In anyone's search for a historic hospitality experience, it is advisable to contact the Historic Hotels of America Group. In the year 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 to this program, a hotel should be at least 50 years old, listed or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places or recognized locally as having historic significance. Hence, if you contact them, you will be in for a property which can offer that historic experience in its own way in five star style.

The Jefferson Hotel in Richmond, Virginia is a perfect example of a historic hotel. Although it is a historic destination it is also a city hotel with luxurious modern touches. The 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. The historic Peninsula Hong Kong say that alligators once roamed its lobby and that Bill Bo jangles 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?

As highlighted above what makes these properties apart from others, are their great stories about the characters that have walked through the doors of these marvelous properties, and historic and personal events that were hosted in them.

In the same manner, it is not wrong to say that, Wentworth Mansion in the heart of historic Charleston, South Carolina, seems like a kind of place that is extraordinarily historic and chances are there that it would have hosted Thomas Jefferson himself. Completed in 1886 in a Second Empire style, the Wentworth was originally the sprawling four-story Gilded Age residence of Francis Silas Rodgers. European artisans used imported materials to craft many of the details that can still be enjoyed by guests today.

As seen through this mesmerizing and marvelous properties in existence around the country and the world, as identified by the Historic Hotels of America Group, these historic properties are not just excellent hospitality destinations but also places of great history. These stories, in these places are not only valued for the particular property but also for the locality, city, state and the country as well. The very existence of these properties is a privilege and honor for a country and its people. These reasons are exactly what make a historic property a historic hotel.
