The JFK

Stay in ultimate sheer luxury at the John F. Kennedy Room. Step onto the plush carpeting and feel as if you are walking on a sea of air.

The blue paint in the room, entitled “Seaworthy,” was inspired by Kennedy’s United States Navy service, as well as “Kennedy Blue,” the name he called the color of his 1961 Lincoln Continental Limousine.

____________ 

  

John Fitzgerald Kennedy stayed at The Blennerhassett Hotel on two different occasions in May of 1960 while campaigning in West Virginia, a state whose votes were paramount in the election. Robert Huck, the contemporaneous proprietor of The Blennerhassett Hotel, contributed to Kennedy’s 1960 campaign.  Teddy, Bobby, and Eunice Kennedy also each stayed on the hotel’s premises as well. Mrs. John F. Kennedy was scheduled to come through Parkersburg but had to cancel at the last minute.
