The Stunning Five-Story Victorian Hotel In This Georgia Small Town Has A History Dating Back To 1892
It’s not every day that you come across a hotel that dates back to the 1800s. But this historical hotel in Georgia is not like most others. If you’re the type to appreciate a little bit of history when you travel, or you like staying in the older hotels that have been preserved in time, this is the hotel for you. It is as blissfully decadent and lavish and you would expect.
The Best Western Plus Windsor Hotel in Americus, Georgia was built in the late 1800s in order to attract more winter visitors from the northeast.
Designed by Swedish architect Gottfried Leonard Norman, this five-story Queen Anne hotel featured a three-story atrium and a hundred rooms.
After closing down in the 1970s, the hotel reopened later with 53 guest rooms all preserving the history of the original build.
But it isn’t just the architecture that makes this hotel so special — Vice President Thomas R. Marshall gave a speech from the balcony in 1917 and Franklin D. Roosevelt spoke in the dining room in the 1920s.
With a castle-like ambiance and pub and restaurant on-site, there really is no reason why you would want to leave this beautiful place.
However, being located within nationally recognized historic downtown Americus might make you want to get out and explore in case you never have been before.
Being within close proximity to the world-famous Plains, Georgia and the Andersonville National Historic Site, you’ll have plenty of places in the surrounding vicinity to get out and enjoy.
Also make sure to indulge in some flavorful food from Rosemary & Thyme, the modern American restaurant on-site that will become the perfect place to dine during your stay.
But really, we can’t blame you if the only reason you visit the Best Western Plus Windsor Hotel in Americus is for the trip back in time.
Address: 125 W Lamar Street, Americus, GA 31709
