Seems like the Arlington Hotel in Hot Springs, AR would qualify: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com...f08e4479f1.jpg

I'm not sure how the Grove Park Inn would dominate Asheville given it is is north of the downtown area on a golf course, and many people don't even know it is there.

I would say Hotel Roanoke in Roanoke VA is a decent suggestion but given it is near a very tall corporate building, i wouldn't say it dominates.

Florence SC's small downtown as an upscale hotel now, Hotel Florence.

Greenville SC has a cool old hotel, the Westin Poinsett, on Main Street near the waterfall. Ben Stein comes on vacation to Greenville and always stays there. The construction of the Hyatt up Main Street was one of the things that helped get the downtown going again.

Yeah, Grove Park doesn't physically dominate the city the way some examples posted here do (Hotel Roanoke and Grand Hotel are IMO good examples of that). It was, however, the main reason for visiting Asheville back in the day. Since then, the city has greatly diversified away from that situation.

The George Washington Hotel in Winchester, Virginia. So successful in their downtown that a new hotel is being built across the street. The rest of the hotels and motels are chains but there is a handful part-time bed & breakfasts.

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

I was thinking of Coral Gables as a more suburban example. The Biltmore is perhaps the most iconic image of Gables.

I used to live in Cisco, Texas which has the Mobley Hotel, the first ever hotel bought by Conrad Hilton. It is now a museum, but if it was still in business, it would be a perfect example.
