We stayed at the Jefferson Hotel mid October 2008. The hotel is a historic hotel, so with that in mind, you won't, and shouldn't expect to find state of the art facilities. For a historical, old hotel, the facilities were nice, the room good and the location was perfect for access to everything in historic downtown Jefferson. The floors were uneven in places, a bit loud and creaky, and you could definitely hear through the walls, but the hotel has a zero tolerance for loud noise after 10pm due to this. We almost had to use it one night as a group of people felt compelled to carry on a 10 minute conversation outside our room after midnight, but they left before we felt the need to make a call to complain. The decorations are nicely appointed and antique in nature, lending to the historic feel of the hotel. There is a nice balcony on the 2nd floor that was nice to sit on and relax with a book and a cup of coffee. If you are looking for a modern, new facility, stay somewhere else. If you are looking for a historical feel, then this is a place to consider. I would definitely stay again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At a time when steamboats plied the Big Cypress River from New Orleans and true Southern gentility was the order of the day a stately structure, now known as the Jefferson Hotel, was built. Once used as a warehouse to store cotton, this lovely building changed hands numerous times. At the turn of the twentieth century it was transformed into a hotel and has served as a haven for weary travelers since that time. ... more less
