New Hotel Makes Headlines

Quickly becoming the star of Inverness and Citrus County, The Crown Hotel was the darling of travel scribes who wrote countless vanity pieces about the hotel for newspapers, magazines and books. 

On April 26, 1984, the Lakeland Ledger wrote:

The Crown's Dining room suggests Victorian comfort - chairs upholstered in red felt, gold draperies and crystal chandeliers.  More informal is the hotel's pub, where you can throw darts and sip ale.
