Chamberlin Hotel 3

Manufacturer: John Maddock & Sons, England
User: Chamberlin Hotel
Date: 1880 - 1896
Notes: The Hotel Chamberlin is located in Virginia at Old Point Comfort at Fort Monroe, overlooking Hampton Roads Harbor. The first Chamberlin Hotel on the site was open from 1896 to 1920, when most of the hotel but its edifice was destroyed by fire.

It was rebuilt and reopened in 1928 as the Chamberlin-Vanderbilt with 294 rooms, but the Vanderbilt name was dropped in 1934. This hotel originally had two square wooden towers with octagonal roofs on top of the brick towers, but the wooden towers were later removed.

According to an article on AIArchitect This Week, "By 1990, ... the hotel had fallen into disrepair, and the September 11 terrorist attacks prompted increased security on this Army-owned property. Subsequently, the Chamberlin closed in spring 2002."

The Hotel Chamberlin has been renovated and reopened in 2008 as a luxury senior rental community. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
