The Cavalier Hotel video.Atlantic Avenue, Virginia Beach, VA, United States/Some argue that The Cavalier Hotel may be what put Virginia Beach on the map. Regardless, no one can dispute the rich history found in the halls of this historic landmark.Construction of the luxurious hotel began in 1926 and continued for 13 months. At times, there were as many as 225 men on the construction site who laid half-million bricks, the largest amount of bricks used on a single building in the entire state of Virginia. With its own private depot, The Cavalier was added as a nonstop train destination from Chicago that hosted mid-westerners from the Norfolk & Western Pullman Coach.Originally, The Cavalier Hotel included 195 guest rooms on 350 acres of land, including a golf course stretching across 290 of those acres.The construction of the 6,060 yard golf course was just as grand as the hotel with some holes modeled after the famous Scottish golf holes of North Berwick, St. Andrews and the Fox Chapel Golf Club in Chicago.A sunken garden graced the south side of the hotel that provided a naturally stunning backdrop for hotel events and groves of flowers that were used to adorn guest rooms, the dining rooms and lobby.//cavalierhotel.com/history Aerial tour of the historic Cavalier hotel in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The building is currently being remodeled and is set to reopen in 2016. I wanted to get closer shots of the building, but the local birds were not a fan of my Phantom and repeatedly tried to attack it.
