Fodor's Expert Review Hawthorn Hotel & Suites at the Governor Dinwiddie
506 Dinwiddie, , at High St., Portsmouth, Virginia, 23704, USA
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Dating to the 1940s, the Governor Dinwiddie hotel in the center of Portsmouth's Olde Towne business district was beautifully restored in 2005. Guest rooms are furnished in reproduction Queen Anne with satin quilted spreads, ecru walls, and moss woodwork. Museums, restaurants, and the waterfront are within a few blocks.
- a Historic Hotel of America, recognized by the National Trust for Historic Preservation
- rates include a Continental breakfast and high-speed Internet
- although it's only 3 mi from the center of Norfolk, it's a little far to compete with hotels in that city
