Holbrooke Hotel


George Washington never slept here, but that was only because he was born too early. When you stay overnight at Grass Valley's historic Holbrooke Hotel, which first opened its doors in 1851, you'll be sharing its hallowed halls with the likes of U.S. presidents Ulysses S. Grant, Benjamin Harrison, James A. Garfield, and Grover Cleveland. Authors Mark Twain and Bret Harte, boxer Gentleman Jim Corbett, femme fatales Lola Montez and Lotta Crabtree, and bad man Black Bart have also signed the guest register. Each antique-filled room has a private bath, and many boast claw-footed bathtubs. Continental breakfast is served each morning in the library. The hotel is also famous for its renowned lunch, and dinner offerings. The Golden Gate Saloon, one of the longest continually operating watering holes west of the Mississippi also beckons with fine spirits or, if you choose not to indulge, espresso drinks.
