History of the Daniel Boone Hotel
Formerly the Daniel Boone Hotel, one of Charleston’s most lavish hotels, built by a progressive group of Charleston citizens at a cost of more than $1.2 million. It was named for Daniel Boone, the frontiersman who resided for a time in Kanawha County. This building has housed such notables as John F. Kennedy, Bob Hope, Tyrone Power and Elvis Presley. The interior was renovated in a unique style for office space while maintaining the original style and charm of the exterior. The interior is now noted for its 10-story atrium with a botanical garden, waterfall and historic photos of the original hotel lobby.
