Watch Hill, Rhode Island: the Ocean House. Though I didn't know until just now that it was demolished in 2005 and what's there now is an approximate reproduction, opened in 2010!

The Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Florida.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miami_Biltmore_Hotel

Not sure if Coral Gables counts as a small city or not since it's contiguous with Miami proper as a ritzy burb.

Thanks for your responses so far! It's been really fun looking up some of these hotels.
And yes, I would count the Biltmore in Coral Gables, since when it was built CG was not so contiguous to Miami as it is now.
Having a large hotel in the center of town used to be a much more common thing, I think; so many of these hotels have been demolished or repurposed:
