Rates and Information
Chestertown's history dates back to 1668 with the first proposals by Governor Charles Calvert to establish a port town on the Chester River. Chestertown was formerly established as the seat of Kent County on April 17, 1706 and the first town plan was drawn a year later. A cross plan was used to delineate the town center with a broad main street, High Street, starting at the waters edge proceeding to the town square where it intersects Cross street. Places of public business were to develop over the years along this simple plan.
History and hospitality are the hallmarks of the Imperial Hotel, both for diners coming for an evening's repast and for overnight visitors. The fare matches the dining rooms in flare, formality and flavor. The presentation of each dish was gorgeous but portions are generous, bearing no resemblance to the nouvelle cuisine trend. Though the decor would suggest more formality, dinner guests are encouraged to 'come as they are'."
petite retreat, this tiny Chesapeake hotel
recalls yesterday's charm."
