When planning a vacation, you don’t necessarily consider your accommodations as a potential adventure. Sure, everyone likes premium amenities and a nice view, but what if your hotel could offer all that and more — like a trip back in time? Carriages, castles, and a chance to live in the ‘40s are all possibilities when booking a room at these locations. Here’s a list of seven hotels guaranteed to transport you to another era.
1. Hotel Monteleone
This New Orleans hotel captures the history of the city’s French Quarter. “Built in 1886, the Beaux-Arts style high-rise transports you to the early city’s heyday as soon as you enter its majestic white marble-covered lobby,” according to CNN. “Done up in elegant style, author suites are named after favorite former guests William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams, and Truman Capote.” Be sure to stop by the Carousel Bar & Lounge for its specialty, the Vieux Carre Cocktail. Room prices start around $170.
