Empire House Hotel, Rising Sun
Charming and quaint!
I loved my stay here for two nights. It was charming and quaint in the best location, right on the river around the corner from Main Street.

Beautiful views and hotel
My husband and I stayed here for our wedding night and a couple nights after. It’s such a cute small hotel with beautiful views of the Ohio river. The owner is very sweet and very helpful. We will definitely stay here again!

Very quaint hotel in a quiet city
As this is a very small hotel, service was provided by the innkeeper herself. From a pre-stay phone call to confirm my arrival to check-in, it all was very courteous. The room I had provided a great view of the river, and the amenities were all good considering the age of the property. This will be a place where I'll make a point to book again should I return to the area. This provides a nice getaway from the bustling city life and a nice alternative to the standard suburban hotels patronized by many.
