Located in nearby Americus, this ornate jewel of a hotel has garnered awards from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Built in 1892, it's a monument to Victorian architecture and remains one of the South's best showcases of American heritage. The grand hotel lobby boasts a three-story open atrium, original woodwork, and carefully preserved marble floors. The rooms, decorated in period decor, have soaring 12-foot ceilings and old-world charm, yet have been updated with modern conveniences like flat-screen TVs, microwaves, and refrigerators. The circular Bridal Suite takes up an entire floor of the hotel's tallest tower. Just below, the Carter Presidential Suite offers sweeping views of downtown Americus.
