This brief post reviewing some of the hotel options in the area is presented by the Georgetown workers’ compensation attorneys of Schuster Jachetti LLP.
The town of Georgetown in Sussex County has served, even from its beginnings, as a centrally-located area through which travelers in the state of Delaware would visit on their way to their destinations. Naturally, this generated a demand for lodging options which has carried on to today. Up next, we review some of the options for those looking to spend more than just an afternoon in this interesting town.
Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham Georgetown Delaware Beaches
The Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham Georgetown Delaware Beaches hotel is located just minutes from downtown Georgetown, historic Milton, and Delaware’s beaches. Moreover, Sussex County Airport and the Sussex County Court System are within a three-mile radius of our this lodging option; it’s also the closest hotel to Del Tech Community College.
Guests of the Microtel Inn & Suites can visit varied, numerous, and nearby business such as the 16 Mile Brewery, Nassau Valley Vineyards, and Dogfish Head Brewery. Additionally, just a short drive from the Hotel are the sandy shores of Lewes Beach, Rehoboth Beach, and Fenwick Island. More adventurous visitors may enjoy a hroseback ride through Redden Forest, or tour the Treasures of the Sea Exhibit at nearby Delaware Technical Community College, which features incredible artifacts including 17th-century cannons, gold, and emeralds.
Brick Hotel, Georgetown
The Brick Hotel on the Circle was originally known during the Civil War era as The Union Hotel. The existing structure was built in 1836 by Joshua S. Layton and Caleb B. Sipple, builders of the Sussex County Courthouse across the Circle, and it actually replaced a Public House that stood on the site. Brick structures like it one were very rare prior to the 19th century and, in fact, less than a dozen remain currently in the State of Delaware.
The Brick Hotel operated as a hotel for over 100 years. During various periods of time, however, it also served other purposes. For a few years soon after it was built, it housed the county court house while a new building was being erected; following that, the post office was housed in the building from 1841-1844. In the 1950s, the property was sold to and significantly remodeled by the Wilmington Trust Company, a banking industry that continued to service the community until the mid-1990s.
In 2008, the present-day owners decided to complete restoration of the historic property. Indeed, these wonderful individuals felt that the town of Georgetown had been very good to them and their family, and they could think of no better way to honor the same than by recreating a significant piece of the town’s history. In doing so, they’ve been able to give both locals and visitors to Georgetown an opportunity to once again enjoy casual dining, a quaint place to have a drink after work with friends, and first-class accommodations.
Tru By Hilton Georgetown
The Tru by Hilton in Georgetown, located just off Highway 113 at 301 College Park Lane, is only a few steps from the best shops and dining the town has to offer. As if that wasn’t enough, downtown Georgetown and Wilmington University are both a five-minute drive from the Tru, and the Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is nine miles away. Their lobby’s a great spot to relax, get some work done, or play a board game. Of course, WiFi and build-your-own hot breakfast are provided and included at no cost with reservations.
