Mesmerized by this place and the area.
What a unique experience. On our way to Florida, we decided to take some time and explore Georgia. Stayed in Americus for 2 nights. Stopped first at the Andersonville war museum to spend about 2 hours. Then to Americus where at first we were nervous driving into town. It looked squalid and scary. Didn't take long to realize that was just a small area of Americus. What a neat downtown. Takes you back in time. When walking into the Windsor, my husband immediately asked me, "Okay, how much is this going to cost me?" When I told him, he couldn't believe it. The place is rife with history. Everything is lovingly restored to its original state. Antiques are everywhere. Wander around on the different floors and check things out. Check in was easy; they were very accommodating even though we were so early. Our room was ready so they let us in. Our room was small, but gave a whole new meaning to the word quaint. I'm fussy about hotel rooms, but I loved this room. We had huge arching windows that didn't look out onto anything special, but were lovely the way the light came in. Would've preferred a king-sized bed, but mattress incredibly comfortable. The only thing I didn't like dealing with was the very small bathroom. I'm not sure all rooms are like that, but I wouldn't want a bathroom like that for more than a couple of nights.There is a really nice restaurant right inside the hotel called the Rosemary and Thyme, and also a pub with a huge outdoor porch/balcony you can sit in. Unfortunately, we didn't get to spend much time out on the balcony because one of the days we were there was Sunday, and they were closed. I hope this hotel keeps to its original state because it's special, as well as the hotel staff with their southern charm. Every employee we met went out of their way to make us feel welcome. less
