Whether you want a king size bed in a waterfront hotel located near historic downtown, or a comfortable kitchenette with a business center and a swimming pool, New Bern, NC has the hotel for you. Its growth as a popular tourism and business destination has led to a diverse selection of amenities, styles and scenic views among its hotels, motels, condominiums and smaller bed and breakfast inns.
Hotels positioned along the downtown riverfront offer views of the Trent and Neuse rivers and are all located within walking distance of unique shopping spots, dining and historic landmarks like Tryon Palace and the Pepsi Store. Downtown is also the only place where you can get a hotel or bed and breakfast with riverfront views. The Doubletree by Hilton and Bridgepoint Hotel and Marina are two of the most well known, particularly because both of them have a marina, bar and restaurant, all under one roof. However, the Comfort Suites is also ideal for an overnight stay downtown, offering riverfront views and a convenient location between Union Point Park, Persimmon’s Restaurant, all within walking distance of the New Bern Riverfront Convention Center and historic downtown.
Downtown hotels stay busy throughout the spring, summer and fall months so reservations are recommended. This trend has been steadily on the rise as New Bern continues to gain popularity as a destination for weddings and conventions. This, combined with an already established tourism industry, has led to the construction of newer hotels outside of the downtown area.
Moving farther out to more commercial areas along Highway 17 and just off Highway 70, many business travelers hoping to stay near the airport or the industrial park are also pleased to find comfort, class and a hot cup of coffee and lots more. Located minutes away from New Bern’s commercial hub in one direction and its vibrant, historical downtown in the other, many travelers are just as content to find a comfortable night’s sleep at an affordable price.
