Provincetown it is one of the most popular American destinations for LGBT tourism, but it also attracts many tourists for other reasons: it is in fact a picturesque and lively town, rich in history and art galleries and its natural position, on the extreme tip of the Cape Cod peninsula, makes it a prime base for visiting the beaches of the National Seashore, on whose shores there are unforgettable ocean views.
Sleeping in a hotel to Provincetown It also means having a good base to explore Cape Cod's other quaint villages, while staying overnight just a stone's throw from one of the area's main attractions: the magnificent whale watching excursions that depart right from the city port.
Find a albergo a Provincetown however, it may not be that easy, especially if you are looking for it at a reasonable price. For this reason I am talking to you today about a hotel where my wife and I had the opportunity to stay this summer, the Seaglass Inn & Spa, which I recommend for more than one reason.

Seaglass Inn & Spa Provincetown: characteristics of the hotel
This is interesting Provincetown hotel is located in the West End area of the city (105 Bradford Street Extension), in a beautiful hillside property of almost 2 hectares, from which you can enjoy beautiful sunset views late in the evening. The location favors that seclusion and tranquility that you will need if you spend an evening in the noisy streets of Provincetown, but at the same time it is also quite close to the center, reachable in 10/15 minutes if you want to take a walk, or a lot. less if you decide to make use of the very useful (and free!) shuttle service provided by the hotel.
Just give an address and you will be chauffeured to any point of the city you want: we used it for dinner at Fannizzi's restaurant (which I highly recommend) and to reach the docking base of the whale watching tour. The hotel is also practically close to the beaches of the Cape Cod National Seashore: Herring Cove Beach is a 25 minute walk (and just 5 by car) and if you have a rental car you can explore the entire surrounding nature reserve with great ease.
From the outside, the room layout at the Seaglass Inn & Spa is somewhat reminiscent of a motel, with all rooms side by side; in reality we are a far cry from the low quality type of motel, the room where we stayed in this interesting Provincetown hotel it was airy, clean, fresh and functional and the young and friendly staff helped us by giving us all the information for visiting the area.
Furthermore, the rooms surround a pleasant swimming pool in the internal garden, which will be very useful, especially on hot days. For those looking for an even more relaxing experience, the hotel offers a SPA, with the possibility of booking massages and various treatments. Breakfast is served directly in the lobby and includes very tasty homemade pastries. Don't miss it!
