Hotel deLuxe

Why it made the list

Hotel deLuxe is a hotel that screams old Hollywood glamour.

Lion and the Rose Victorian B&B

B&B’s, by nature, tend to have an old-school feel, but Lion and the Rose Victorian B&B Inn takes it to a whole new level.

McMenamins Kennedy School

Why it made the list

Built in an abandoned elementary school, McMenamins Kennedy School will school you on what it means to take a themed hotel to the next level.
