Historic Hotels of America announces the addition of two members. This
selection brings the total number of members in the program to 203 hotels,
representing 41 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Canada.
"Staying at a Historic Hotels of America member is all about the experience," said Thierry Roch, executive director of National Trust Historic Hotels of America. "The range of American travel experiences is perfectly showcased with our two new members: a 1850s former coastal New England tavern and a 1950s university campus hotel in middle-America. Historic Hotels of America members trace the history of this great country and prove the travel journey is even better when staying at a hotel or inn with local flavor or tradition."
