Have a cocktail on the porch or balcony while watching small aircraft takeoff and land... yes this is an airport based hotel but also takes you back in time to the 1940s from the moment you step into the lobby. From the period-specific furniture and decor to the authentic 40s music playing in the background. Even the elevator walls are decorated with old blueprints of WWII military aircraft. The rooms are similarly decorated including an army green blanket at the foot of the bed, but don't let that fool you; the rooms and beds are very comfortable. There's a well appointed bar downstairs for a drink as well as a separate cafe. We've stayed in Fredericksburg many times including in-town locations. The hangar hotel is a few minutes out of town but nice to get away, especially if it is high tourist season. If you're lucky, they might even be having an antique car show while you're there, or call ahead to find out.
