Where to stay in Fenghuang County

Travelers will find the main bulk of the accommodations in Fenghuang County located in the town of Fenghuang. The old town district, close to the water, has plenty of characterful inns, set in the rustic wooden buildings for which the area has become known. If you're looking for larger hotels, explore options away from the knotted streets of the old town. Along the main regional roads, some grand and luxurious hotels sit alongside a handful of simpler options.
