While in Richmond, Va the other week, I stayed at the historic Jefferson Hotel. I just love grand old hotels like this and thought I'd share with you some of their Christmas decorations.

 The entry court is a recent addition but you can still see the beautiful beaux arts building behind.
The main lobby or rotunda has an enormous 40' tall christmas tree that had just been put up during my visit. Sadly the lights aren't on but it was stunning!
Looking up at the tree.
This mezzanine level surrounds the rotunda.
The palm leaf plaster detailing on the ceiling is beautiful.
I loved these banisters with the Greek key design.
Above is the floor plan. You can see how the hotel grew over time, adding many new spaces.
The empire room is one of the larger rooms available for hire; a site of many Richmond weddings!
The adjacent Flemish room has beautiful mahogany paneling.
The palm court has this statue of their namesake, Thomas Jefferson, and also holds the desks for check in.
The delicous restaurant, Lemaire, is on the other side of the palm court from the rotunda and features this beautiful bar as you enter.
The detail work in these rooms is beautiful!
I loved the carpet and Venetian glass chandeliers.
The private dining rooms feature antique limestone mantels.
And perhaps a bit strange to include but I loved the nickel lanterns in the restrooms; just had to share them as well!
If you find yourself in Richmond, I would highly recommend a stay or meal at this elegant hotel.
