Almost forgot the Hotel Jefferson in Richmond, Va. and pictures inside of hotel.
We go every year. One year I will try to make it before Christmas.
Legend has it that gators lived here at the hotel.
Guests who came to the hotel from Florida with their pet alligators realizing they would grow too large for their bathtubs
would leave them at the hotel.
Old Pompey as he was called was the last of the gators to die in 1948.
A good picture taking spot on the way in at the entrance
Inside the entrance area
I love red and like how a lot of red is in the decor
my favorite color for Christmas.
I would have loved to see the White House decor last year with all of the red. Beautiful!
Ahh, the grand staircase. It says no taking pictures at the bottom or top,of staircase, but many still do.
base of the Christmas tree looking up and the ornaments are just dripping from the boughs.
Wreaths on doors about the hotel
All so different
Just about every where one looks, there is a small tree or another type of arrangement is just so beautiful.
At the entrance and elevator
The elevator and carved doorway surround leading to the inside
I must remember to do this with the large finials I have for some arrangements in a couple of ginger jars.
Ginger bread house
Hope to be back at the end of this year but before Christmas
