Where to find a historic hotel for a couples weekend?
With the holidays just having passed, my husband and I decided a nice gift for one another would be do a small getaway in a new hotel. Leaving the kids home for a little adult time is not just desired but often required. We began our search for a unique hotel that had some charm and wasn't the typical Holiday Inn or Comfort Inn Suites.
The Historic City Grand Hotel in Williamsport
The Historic City Grand Hotel had availability, was reasonably priced and had unique themed rooms based on different themes from Williamsport history. We ended up staying in the Band Room for the separate seating area and vault that is a door to the shower. On the walls were many historic photographs of bands of yester year. It was really interesting to momentarily step back into time to remember a little bit what life may have been life back in the day in the city of Williamsport located in Northeast Pennsylvania.
This historic hotel was full of charm, great pictures and cool decor.
Some other rooms available are:
We really enjoyed the keyless entry and self check in the City Grand Hotel offered. Although there is no front desk, there is a hang out room on the third floor, with ice, vending machine, microwave and additional cups and coffee maker. It felt a lot like an Airbnb and I am very surprised they do not actually have any of their unique rooms listed on Airbnb's directory. Maybe one day.
There is a restaurant call the Newsroom at the hotel, but it was closed during our stay.
