Andrew Jackson and his party stayed at the Tremont House in 1833. This four-story, granite-faced hotel was designed by noted architect Isaiah Rogers in 1829. It was the first hotel in the nation to be equipped with running water and indoor plumbing and it set the standard for luxury that other major hotels in the nation followed.
