Old Forts Make Cool Hotels

Historic forts were often set up on high elevations or perched at the edges of bodies of water — in other words, places that have amazing views. Luckily for us, many of these buildings are now historic hotels.

I was stationed at the Presidio of S.F Fort Baker is nice but the whole area is full of old officer quarters and building on both the north and south sides of the bridge. I'd like to see this resource used and the history/beauty retained

If you go to Mackinac Island, Michigan, you can visit the 18th century fort a stone's throw from the Grand Hotel. When you get back to Mackinac City, you can visit Old Ft Michilimackinac which was recently uncovered and restored near the Bridge.
