The Jefferson Hotel
A charter member of the Historic Hotels of America, the Jefferson Hotel is a landmark in Richmond that opened on Halloween in 1895. The building’s facade features a blend of several architectural styles, including Spanish revival, Italianate, palladian and classical revival. Inside, a life-size marble statue of Thomas Jefferson by the sculptor and Richmond native Edward V. Valentine greets guests as they make their way through the lobby. The grand staircase is perhaps the most stunning feature; according to rumors, it was the inspiration for the staircase in Gone With The Wind! There’s no shortage of famous former guests at The Jefferson either – a group which includes 12 U.S. Presidents, Charlie Chaplin, Frank Sinatra, and Cindy Crawford, among others.
