The Historic BEST WESTERN PLUS Windsor Hotel is located in the heart of downtown Americus, Georgia. Built in 1892, to attract winter visitors from the north, the Windsor was a 100 room, five story Victorian masterpiece architecturally designed with tower and turret, balconies, and a three story open atrium lobby. It occupies nearly an entire city block, and was the site of numerous balls and celebrations. The hotel closed its doors in 1972 after almost 80 years in operation. In 1991, the hotel re-opened after a $6.5 million dollar renovation.
In 2010, the hotel underwent an extensive renovation updating the hotel with modern amenities, such as a Fitness and Business Center, all new bedding including duvet and duvet covers, 32 inch LG flat screen televisions, granite countertops in the bathroom, micro/fridge, and much more. During the renovation areas of the hotel were restored back to its original state. On June 15th 2010, the hotel joined the Best Western family hosting a re-grand opening to remember with special guest attendees Former President and Mrs. Carter and many other local leaders.
