The magnificent Salish Lodge perches on a plain overlooking the falls, coming to life in 1916 as a quaint eight-room “place to rest” for coal miners, railway workers and other travelers heading east over the mountains. The fact that it overlooks the spectacular falls isn’t lost on modern-day sojourners who come to wrap themselves in both nature and nurture at the same time. . 👉 Click the link in bio to read the full story of @salishlodgespa . 📸 Image via @salishlodgespa . . . . . #hotel #hotels #vacation #travel #traveldiaries #travelblogger #storiedhotels #travelling #hotelstay #travelinspo #travelphotography #instatravel #uniquehotels #luxuryhotel #hotelhistory #travelgram #hoteldesign #instahotel #hotelier #traveldestination #wanderlust #luxury #winecountry #wallawalla #pugetsound #salishlodgespa #wine  https://storiedhotels.com/journeys/puget-sound-to-walla-walla-a-journey-through-washington-wine-country/
Over the years, the lavish Wardman Park Hotel has been home to many of Washington’s political elite. Every president, from Herbert Hoover to George W. Bush, has held an inaugural ball at the hotel.  During WWII, Dwight Eisenhower would make top-secret trips back to Washington to meet with President Franklin D. Roosevelt. After his briefings, he would often sneak up the back stairs at the Wardman Tower to see his wife. . 👉 Click the link in bio to read the full story of @mhwardmanpark . 📸 Image via @mhwardmanpark . . . . . #hotel #hotels #vacation #travel #traveldiaries #travelblogger #storiedhotels #travelling #hotelstay #travelinspo #travelphotography #instatravel #uniquehotels #luxuryhotel #hotelhistory #travelgram #hoteldesign #instahotel #hotelier #traveldestination #wanderlust #luxury #wardmanparkhotel #wardmanpark #washington #washingtondc #dc  https://storiedhotels.com/hotels/washington-dc/washington-marriott-wardman-park-tales-from-a-presidential-residence-full-of-ww-ii-and-tv-history/

Even from the beginning, the Morris House stood apart from the crowd. In 1786, the thirteen colonies were bickering amongst each other as President George Washington and such heads of state as Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin were trying to hammer out a Constitution in Philadelphia.  In this turbulent time, William and John Reynolds, decided to build a house apart from the hustle and bustle all the way on 8th Street, which was then on the outskirts of Philadelphia. And so the Morris House began… . 👉 Click the link in bio to read the full story of @morrishousehotel1787 . 📸 Image via @morrishousehotel1787 . . . . . #hotel #hotels #vacation #travel #traveldiaries #travelblogger #storiedhotels #travelling #hotelstay #travelinspo #travelphotography #instatravel #uniquehotels #luxuryhotel #hotelhistory #travelgram #hoteldesign #instahotel #hotelier #traveldestination #wanderlust #luxury #philadelphia #philadelphiahotel #visitphiladelphia #morrishousehotel #morrishouse  https://storiedhotels.com/hotels/the-morris-house-hotel-keeping-quiet-watch-over-philadelphia-for-over-200-years/

When it comes to London hotels, Brown’s is the pick of the literati.  Stephen King booked a suite to knock out the first chapters of his acclaimed novel “Misery”.

On the island of Santorini, Greece, there is a small village called Imerovigli, “The Balcony to the Aegean Sea.” Immortalized in Homer’s epic tale of Odysseus, this is the same sea that the fabled warrior, father, and lover traversed in a ten-year journey to return to his love Penelope. Amid the ancient architecture of Cycladic churches and white-walled homes amphitheatrically constructed around a volcanic caldera, sits the Grace Santorini Hotel. . 👉 Click the link in bio to read the full story of @gracehotelsantorini . 📸 Image via @gracehotelsantorini . . . . . #hotel #hotels #vacation #travel #traveldiaries #travelblogger #storiedhotels #travelling #hotelstay #travelinspo #travelphotography #instatravel #uniquehotels #luxuryhotel #hotelhistory #travelgram #hoteldesign #instahotel #hotelier #traveldestination #wanderlust #luxury #santorini #greece #odysseus #gracesantorinihotel #gracesantorini  https://storiedhotels.com/experiences/romantic/13-romantic-storied-hotels-to-fall-in-love-with/

The Palacio Duhau was built as a family home for brothers Luis and Alberto Duhau, who belonged to the Buenos Aires aristocracy.  The land initially housed a Tudor-style mansion, belonging to railway magnate Alejandro Hume. The Hume’s were so well-connected that Spain’s Infanta Isabella stayed there during a visit to Buenos Aires commemorating the May Revolution. Today, the entire estate serves as a monument to a bygone era of opulence. . 👉 Click the link in bio to read the full story of @palacioduhau . 📸 Image via @derfernando . . . . . #hotel #hotels #vacation #travel #traveldiaries #travelblogger #storiedhotels #travelling #hotelstay #travelinspo #travelphotography #instatravel #uniquehotels #luxuryhotel #hotelhistory #travelgram #hoteldesign #instahotel #hotelier #traveldestination #wanderlust #luxury #palacioduhau #parkhyattbuenosaires #hyatt #southamerica #argentina  https://storiedhotels.com/argentina/the-most-storied-hotels-in-argentina-immerse-yourself-in-the-history-of-south-america/

It’s not hard to wistfully imagine the Peabody Hotel Memphis in its bygone glory days, but the truth is that it’s as glorious as it ever was. Only the world around it has changed.
