The Oldest Hotel in Every State [MAP]

When planning a vacation, accommodations are an important factor in determining your destination. Should you opt for a newer, more modern hotel with up-to-date amenities? A spacious Airbnb that can accommodate a dozen people? Or should you go the more historic route with a centuries-old bed and breakfast? For history buffs, the last is likely the best bet.

Luckily, there are hundreds of historic hotels in the U.S., some of which date all the way back to the 1600s. There’s even a nationally recognized program, Historic Hotels of America, dedicated to recognizing and protecting properties that have persisted through the decades and retained their original sense of place and architectural integrity. But with so many taverns, inns, and hotels in the U.S., we decided to determine which ones are the oldest in every state.

While some properties proudly proclaim to be the oldest within state lines, others have more obtuse histories that make it difficult to nail down which business has stuck it out the longest. Even more challenging: Many historic hotels are located in buildings that predate the lodging operation by several decades. As such, we only considered the founding date of the hotel or inn itself rather than the age of the building for this list.

The Oldest Hotel in Every State [MAP]

Alabama: Redmont Hotel (1925)

Birmingham’s Redmont Hotel opened in 1925 as one of the first hotels in America to have a private bathroom in each of its 200 rooms. An investment group made up of NBA players including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar purchased the hotel in the 1980s and funneled $7 million into the property. Four decades later, it was renovated again to become the upscale lodging facility it is today. The hotel is allegedly haunted by numerous ghosts, including a woman seen wearing white and American singer-songwriter Hank Williams, who died in his room in 1952.

Alaska: Alaskan Hotel and Bar (1913)

Located in downtown Juneau, the Alaskan Hotel and Bar opened its doors in September 1913 shortly after the Alaska Gold Rush.

Arkansas: Capital Hotel (1870)

The Capital Hotel in downtown Little Rock has been operational since 1870 and has played host to prominent guests in its 154-year history, including Ulysses S. Grant.

President Bill Clinton also used the property as a media headquarters when in town during his eight-year term.

Arizona: Grand Canyon Hotel (1892)

Conveniently located on Route 66 in Williams, the Grand Canyon Hotel has long attracted visitors on their way to the canyon.

Grass Valley’s Holbrooke Hotel got its start as the Golden Gate Saloon, which opened in 1852 amidst California’s Gold Rush. That same year, the single-story Exchange Hotel was added to the same property as the saloon, though a fire destroyed both buildings just three years later. After reconstruction, another fire destroyed the hotel in 1862. This time, the hotel was rebuilt with iron doors and a fortified roof to prevent further damage from an inferno. In 1879, Ellen and Daniel Holbrooke bought the property and renamed it the Holbrooke Hotel. Since then, several famous guests have booked overnight stays, including Ulysses S. Grant, Grover Cleveland, James Garfield, and Mark Twain.

Colorado: The Cliff House at Pikes Peak (1874)

Woodbury’s 1754 House got its start in 1736 as a private residence for Connecticut local Anthony Stoddard. In 1754, the house was converted to an inn called the Curtiss House, which welcomed travelers for a hot meal and a place to stay. In 2020, the property’s current owners restored the inn and renamed it as a nod to its first year as a lodging facility.

At the time, it was a popular place for travelers on their way to Chicago to stop for the night, though it was forced to close in 1878 following the distracting inventions of dining cars and Pullman sleepers. For the last few decades of the 1800s, the property served as a factory producing windmills and farm wagons, though it was converted into eight apartments after it was purchased by a veterinarian in 1902. It fell into disrepair a short time later and sat vacant until the 1970s, when it was purchased by Norm and Kathy Kinney and reopened on Thanksgiving in 1976.
