Plymouth Rock is reputedly where, in 1620, the creation of the United States began. Nowadays, the area has around 60,000 residents and many tourists – often weekend trippers from Boston or holidaymakers on their way to Cape Cod. Check into a traditional Massachusetts inn or quality chain hotel yourself to explore the shoreline, seafood and history of “America’s Hometown” – bookable on Culture Trip.

With an exterior reminiscent of a French manor house, Mirbeau Inn & Spa feels like it belongs to another time – and that’s just how its husband-and-wife proprietors intend it. Tradition merges with 21st-century amenities, including the gym’s Peloton bikes and the Biotec facial spa treatments. Within a short putt is Pinehills Golf Club, while in-house Bistro & Wine Bar serves (naturally) French-influenced classics such as steak frites to hungry holiday pilgrims.

Harbor views? Check. Walking distance to shops, restaurants and attractions? Double check. Hotel 1620 is at the heart of Plymouth action, right by the Mayflower replica, Plymouth Rock itself and the departure point for sunset cruises on an authentic paddlewheel boat.

Touring Massachusetts is something everyone should do at least once, and Hilton Garden Inn is the perfect jump-off point for exploring the state’s nature and history. The sweeping, sandy vistas of Cape Cod are only 10mi (16km) away, while downtown Plymouth is a 2mi (3.2km) drive – or taxi ride, if you’re planning to try craft tipples from the local Mayflower brewing company. Sampled one too many? Treat yourself to a soak in the hot tub and indoor heated pool the next morning.
