About the Hotel
A true taste of Americana, running river voyages along the Mississippi River and through the country's heartland, American Queen Steamboat Company is an experience like no other. Embark on a journey aboard the illustrious American Queen, a ship more than 100 yards in length with six magnificent decks - the largest riverboat in the world - complete with giant red paddlewheel, fluted stacks, and classic white trimmings. Inside, no expense has been spared in creating an utterly opulent ambiance. Polished mahogany and rich textiles accent every space, and with an all-American crew showering you with Southern hospitality, the mood is inherently inviting from the moment you step aboard. American Queen holds just 432 guests, which is enough to feel the energetic enthusiasm of a large group, while still experiencing personal service, and forming friendships in the intimate atmosphere. Staterooms are adorned with Victorian-era charm, yet house all the modern amenities required, including flat-panel televisions, complimentary bottled water, and - depending on your choice of accommodations - views through bay windows or from French doors that lead directly to the deck.
Regardless of your chosen itinerary, American Queen Steamboat Company promises the trip of a lifetime. From the Upper Mississippi to cruises along the Ohio and Tennessee Rivers, you will be privy to panoramic views of gorgeous deltas, peaceful fields, rolling mountainsides, and lively towns. Along the way, a curated selection of shore excursions allows you to make the most of each destination. Additionally, signature complimentary excursions are included with every voyage as well, including things like museum admissions, narrated tours, and an exclusive fleet of hop-on hop-off Steamcoaches to give you easy access to the best historic and cultural attractions. When it comes to dining, your onboard meals are nothing short of exceptional affairs. With a celebrated American chef as the boat's Culinary Director, inspiring dishes and fantastic feasts are offered day and night. Further to the dining, take advantage of the other wonderful onboard facilities, including spa treatments, award-winning live entertainment each evening, a fitness center, and much more.
