The oldest hotel in every state

INSIDER Logo By Madeline Diamond of INSIDER | Slide 1 of 51: Many hotels in the US date back to the country's founding - and some are even older.The Seaside Inn in Kennebunk, Maine, for example, has been run by the same family for nine generations. Many flock to historic hotels in the hopes of spotting a ghost: The Gold Hill Hotel in Virginia City, Nevada, is allegedly haunted by former guests. The US is filled with glamorous, modern hotels, but there is something special about staying in a history-filled establishment that helps tell the story of a destination's local culture. From colonial bed and breakfasts in New England to stagecoach stops from the Old West, there are plenty of places to spend the night that history buffs will love. With the help of Historic Hotels of America, a program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, INSIDER has compiled a list of the oldest (or nearly the oldest) hotel in every state.
