Flashy new boutique hotels are cool and all, but they can't hold a candle to the longevity and history that these classic American resort hotels have enjoyed. The Homestead traces its history all the way back to 1766 and has been visited by 22 U.S. presidents. West Virginia's famous Greenbrier resort (above) has seen 26 presidents and was selected as the evacuation location for Congress during the Cold War (and had a giant bunker installed to protect against nuclear fallout). See these and 11 more historic American hotels, mapped, below. For more on old school hotels, check out the Curbed city sites' historic profiles that dropped this afternoon.
