YORK-The Duke of York Hotel was recently sold. The waterfront hotel, located at 508 Water Street in Yorktown, will undergo renovations and rebrand as Yorktown Beach Hotel.
M.A. Bowry & Company bought the property for $3 million from Crockett Enterprises LLC in early July.
The hotel was first built in 1965 and features 57 rooms. The new owners plan to upgrade the hotel and add more guest amenities. The hotel will remain open during the renovation project, which is expected to last six months.
The new Yorktown Beach Hotel is the only waterfront hotel on the Peninsula. York County hopes the property will become a popular overnight destination for visitors to the Greater Williamsburg area.
