“Jackson Jewel”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

We recently celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary by traveling from Natchez to Jackson via the Natchez Trace. We stayed in Jackson on a Saturday night at the Fairview Inn. Right away, we noticed the beauty of the grounds and the old mansion. At check-in, the attendant told us that they had a cancellation and upgraded our suite to a larger room at no charge. We stayed in the Asian Suite, and the amenities were top-notch. There was also an area that had bottled water, soft drinks, fresh baked cookies and cake on hand at no charge for the guests. We did not get to have dinner at 1908 Provisions since it's closed on Saturdays, but we had the included breakfast Sunday morning, and it was awesome. There is also a bar on site, The Library. I would like to check it out next time. We did walk around in the bar area Sunday morning before we left, and found that it's filled with books by Mississippi writers and books about Mississippi history, culture, and cooking. There are also quotes on the walls by famous Mississippians. We loved everything about the Fairview Inn and can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Book early! It fills up quickly!

We love Historic Southern homes. But this Lady needs a slight makeover or change her stylist. Everything is clean and pleasant but I feel the decor has been lost in the eighties. Some great pieces exist but fabrics and paints and carpets need restoration. Southern Charm drips from the entry but the stenciling in the rooms scream "Help Me"! Great Stay...but I am picky!

We generally seek boutique hotels. I think this is the only one in Jackson, MS. The location was very walkable and pleasant; it had obviously good event staging. But on a slow week night we were very disappointed in the room we were given. We should have complained immediately but we stowed bags and headed right out the door for sightseeing. On closer inspection we found leaking faucets, extremely poor water pressure making for a very poor shower, light fixtures not working and the view was of a flat roof covered w/ a blue plastic tarp! This was not a busy or even partially full hotel on the night in question. When making the reservation in February they asked if I had a room preference, I was told all rooms were available. Not being familiar with the location I asked that they choose their favorite. That ball was was dropped but the people were pleasant and the restaurant outstanding! We would stay there again but I would ask to see the room and inspect carefully before unpacking.

Room Tip: Don't choose Room #4 and inspect before unpacking.

Beautiful inn, fabulous restaurant, gracious folks! And for no reason we could discern, had our accomodations upgraded to one of their luxury suites. You would be hard pressed to find a better place to dine or rest your weary head in Jackson. Kudos to Peter and Tamar Sharp on their fine establishment. (This property is is on the National Register of Historic Places and has received many awards and been recognized by numerous publications as an outstanding inn.)

Room Tip: Their website is well-designed and the room descriptions and pictures are particularly helpful.

I swear i said the words "this is so cute" maybe 100 times! STUNNING house, amazing bedrooms that make you want to re decorate your entire house, great amenities and the restaurant inside is beautiful. The staff were great and so accommodating of our baby. Before I arrived I felt it was a little pricey but when you see the house you will understand!! So worth it, a must for anyone traveling n the area and perfect for romantic getaway!

We had stayed in a great old hotel in Jackson but alas it was closed.
We found Fairview by accident and were we pleased.
We have a dog and what a room they had for us.
Dog kennel, water dish, dog bed and even great reading for our baby!
The room was plush and cheery
The bathroom was spectacular.
The only issue was check in.
When you enter the main entrance you have no idea where to go.
We were directed to an office and than to a closet to print out our reservation. Not very classy nor befitting the charm and attention to detail that exists elsewhere in this establishment
We will be back

We recently stayed at the Fairview Inn. Our experience was beyond our expectations to say the least. We arrived at night and the place was beautiful all lit up. Easy check in and have a kitchen open to have a piece of homemade cake and coffee. Other beverages , fruit, fresh baked cookies were available round the clock ...no charge. We stayed in the Greek suite with the sun room and it was great for an early riser to sit in and read or catch up on work and let your spouse sleep in. Breakfast was amazing to say the least.. The New Orleans Cajun Crawfish Eggs Benedict was out of the world: Service was impeccable and the staff so friendly. Would definitely stay again. Very convenient to most all in Jackson. Drove to Vicksburg to see battle ground and had an excellent BBQ at Chimneyville BBQ. You must try the pecan pie! Great trip even if it was for business!

Room Tip: Stayed in Greek Suite....very plush and great sunroom.
