New London, CT 2017
Architectural details remain long after the business ends. Winthrop is a common name in New London history, since the city was founded in 1646 by John Winthrop Jr who also became a governor of the colony. I'm assuming the hotel was named after him. The building now houses a couple of businesses, but for the most part appears vacant. From the 2009 Issue of The Preservationist, a publication of New London Landmarks, Inc:
The Winthrop Hotel was top grade with excellent cuisine and courteous and efficient service. Lighted throughout by electricity and gas, it was a reputable, up- to-date house, receiving generous patronage.
