An Ideally Located Hotel Near Hearst Castle
Experience An Iconic Estate
The national historic landmark Hearst Castle was designed by architect Julia Morgan between 1919 and 1947 for newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst. The hilltop estate encompasses the Casa Grande, three opulent guesthouses, and 127 acres of lush gardens, grand terraces, impressive pools and winding walkways. The main home, built in the Mediterranean Revival style, boasts 165 rooms and an impressive European and Mediterranean art collection to see on your Hearst Castle vacation.
In its heyday—the 20’s and 30’s—invitations to Hearst Castle were highly coveted. Some A-listers included Clark Gable, Joan Crawford, the Marx Brothers, Charlie Chaplin, Dolores Del Rio, James Stewart, Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill and many others. It was the inspiration for the "Xanadu" mansion of the 1941 Orson Welles film Citizen Kane.
