Hanger Hotel

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 24 April 2016 in Architecture.

Built to look like a 1940s, WWII airport hangar, this quirky boutique hotel is a minute's walk from the Gillespie County Airport and 3 miles from downtown Fredericksburg.

This was our second visit to this unusual hotel, and it did not disappoint! It is a unique experience of stepping back into the 1940's without giving up the luxuries of today. The aviation and World War II based setting is comfortably complemented with today's luxuries of high speed internet, bomber jacket leather covered furniture, and Egyptian cotton sheets. This is a "must stay" in Texas.

The second floor observation deck is a great location to relax and enjoy the view. This is a fun place to watch the planes come and go as you can see from one end of the runway to the other. The airport is commonly visited by all types of aircraft, from single engine planes to multi-engine jets and helicopters.

Sounds like a fun place to stay. One would not want to give up those luxuries of today would they Barbara.
