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.

Welcome to the future of local news

Today, July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper (except we also give you access to all the news we published before that day). We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in free credit just for signing up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for about 15 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
