According to National Trust for Historic Preservation, hotels also have to be recognized as having historic significance and be at least 50 years old. These hotels have historic significance. Here is a list of five of the best Historical Hotels in America.

MISSION INN HOTEL & SPA (Riverside, California)- The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa, a National Historic Landmark, started out modestly as a 12-room adobe boarding house in the late 1800s. Today, the charming AAA Four Diamond hotel offers 238 guest rooms and some of the most stunning hotel architecture out there.

THE INN AT THE PRESIDIO (San Francisco)- The Georgian Revival-style building has been restored as a guest lodge. Space for celebrations and meetings is available inside the Inn and at several venues in easy walking distance on the Main Post, making us a wonderful event destination among hotels near Golden Gate Park. CNN reports that the hotel also won for best small historic inn/hotel with under 75 guestrooms, at the 2016 Historic Hotels Awards of Excellence.

THE HERMITAGE HOTEL (Nashville)- The historic Hermitage Hotel was constructed in 1908 as Nashville's first million-dollar hotel. No expense was spared in adorning the Beaux-Arts building with a grand staircase, mahogany-paneled guestrooms, Italian marble columns, a painted glass skylight and Circassian walnut cabinetwork. Numerous presidents and dignitaries number among the guests of this Nashville icon.

THE MAYFLOWER HOTEL (Washington, DC)- The Mayflower Hotel is a capital classic freshly rendered, a landmark hotel that brings timeless elegance and contemporary style to its role as a vibrant social hub. The Mayflower's 581 guest rooms and suites showcase a fluent mix of worldly touches and local flavor in details big and small, revealing a refreshing retreat in the heart of the city.

THE AMERICAN CLUB (Kohler, Wisconsin)- The prestigious American Club began as a housing unit for single immigrant workers at the Kohler company in 1918 - it included a pub, bowling alley, barbershop and offered English lessons for workers. In 1981, the property re-opened as a luxury retreat, according to USA TODAY 10 BEST, it is now famous for its world-class golf courses, award-winning restaurants and a Forbes Five Star spa.
