  • Famous guest: Rumor has it President Harry S. Truman stayed here during a visit to Portsmouth's naval shipyard.
  • Modern guest rooms are equipped with microwaves, refrigerators, and TVs with HBO.
  • Stay fit in the fitness center with adjacent sauna.
  • Award winner: The hotel received a Three Diamond rating from AAA.

Portsmouth, Virginia: Seaport with a Long Naval History

The seaport town of Portsmouth is bounded on three sides by the Elizabeth River, and much of its 250-year history revolves around the waterfront. It's home to two of the oldest Naval facilities in the country: a naval shipyard, which you can learn about at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard Museum, and a naval medical center that dates back to 1830. Visitors can explore both facilities via the Path of History, a self-guided walking tour that runs between the two sites. The route wends past a pair of 75,000-pound propellers, refurbished sails and naval guns, and signs detailing key milestones in the shipyard's history.

It's also worth it to take a stroll along the Portsmouth Seawall. In the summer, the waterfront pathway hosts music and art festivals. It also contains the Lightship Portsmouth Museum, which you can tour any time of year. The museum, located inside a 1915 lightship, contains historic artifacts, uniforms, and photographs from nearly 50 years of service. Head a few blocks inland to check out the shops, restaurants, and centuries-old houses lining Olde Town Portsmouth. Many homes offer tours, including the 1825 Hill House, which housed three generations of the Hill family and is still furnished with their belongings.
