    « Delightful Charming stay »

    Greeted by a warm & inviting lobby beautiful decorated for the holiday season. Check in was friendly and fast. My room was charming with beautiful antique furnishings. A word of warning ~~~ the beds are very high/tall. Came up above my hip and I'm 5'8. I was worried about being able to safely get in and out of the stunning bed safety, got a bad knee. The front desk brought me a step stool, problem solved. Bed was extremely comply!!! As soon as you walk into this establishment, it's like walking back in time. Attention to detail of days gone by is refreshing. By no means is this hotel what you may consider modern/ but the charm and detail of simpler times was refreshing. Don't worry, there is modern amenities like wifi. Had a delicious steak dinner in the restaurant and breakfast the next morning was just as good. Only complaint if I had one was parking was a bit of an issue due to outside renovations/ maintenance on the exterior of hotel. There was heavy equipment and orange safety cones blocking most front of building parking. Also work crew was a bit loud outside my window early in the morning. The front desk clerk did offer an escort to our vehicle that night if we were going back out and suggested calling desk when we got back. It was a nice gesture in making us feel safe and taken care of. We will definitely be staying here again when we come back for training at the RCI.

    A nice hotel with a good restaurant and bar/lounge with good food. The service was good. This is an old historic hotel, so I didn't expect everything to be perfect. In a good location downtown within walking distance to good restaurants and bars.

    « A Historic Gem »

    So glad that this historic hotel has been saved. The lobby is beautiful and the staff was wonderful. Enjoyed a drink and dinner on Floyd's Pub veranda. The room was spacious and the bathroom updated and clean. Only complaint was the noise from the bar on N.Jackson St. From Room 314, the noise is incredible. Both Friday and Sat. nights stays the noise from that bar was non-stop until closing time, 2:30am. It appeared that everyone congregated at the entrance to the bar, so screaming, yelling, cars taking off at high rates of speed, horns honking. Crazy. If you book, ask for an interior room or a room away from N. Jackson St. With this information, I would stay here again, but would ask for an interior room.

    « TOTALLY recommend!!! »

    From the time we walked in the front door and were greeted by Allie at the front desk, to the time we walked in our beautiful room, to breakfast with Floyd and dinner with Destiny it has been the BEST hotel and experience we could have ever imagined or wanted! We would totally recommend this hotel to anyone without any hesitation!!! The food, the staff, the decor and cleanliness were all perfect! It is like stepping back in time with the beautifully well maintained history but with modern amenities!!! Well done!!! Windsor!!!

    « SERIOUS ISSUES... »

    My 6 night stay went awry from the very first night. There was no heat in my room and the ambient temperature was 64 degrees in the room. I was given a portable heater that never actually warmed the room, but after 3-4 hours, it did raise the temp to 72 degrees. I informed staff the next morning. When I returned to my room that evening the maid had left the AC on high and set to 65 degrees. Really? I informed Vic the manager and he did immediately upgrade me to the Carter Presidential Suite. I am aghast that what they call a Presidential Suite is really no different (other than size & a couch with 2 chairs) than regular rooms.

    My family enjoyed the hotel. It was very clean. We have never stayed at a hotel that reflected the past and history. It was nice for the kids to see. The rooms were very large. We are a family of 5 and fit comfortably in a double room that had a sofa for one of the little ones to sleep on. We were here to go to Plains on Sunday morning so its only about 12 minutes or so from Presidents Carter church.

    « Castle Like Experience »

    This hotel is a historic, beautiful building that looks like a castle with turrets. The lobby has marble floors, oak wood and Victorian furniture. The hotel has an elevator and has been updated. It is a fun, wonderful experience to stay there. Parking is in a lot behind the hotel. There is an alley beside the hotel to get to the parking lot. The front of the hotel has stairs and is not accessible with a luggage cart. The hotel has a back door across from the parking lot that is accessible with a luggage cart.

    « Excellent hotel »

    We read about this hotel on line & thought it would be fun to try it. The hotel was built in 1892 but is completely updated. The front desk clerks were exceptional - very friendly & knowledgeable. The cleaning staff was great as well as maintenance staff. Our room was spacious and clean. The bathroom, surprisingly for an old hotel, was very clean with great water pressure. The restaurant was beautifully done - exceptional service & food. The bar on the second floor was great with a balcony area that overlooked the street below. Drink prices were very reasonable and bar staff was great. The price was very reasonable also. The only downside was the street noise.

    « The Windsor hotel is wonderful. »

    We love this place. The hotel itself is elegant. Floyd's Pub on the second floor is one of the most popular places in Americus. The pub extends out into a wonderful balcony area with rocking chairs and sitting areas. We take our coffee out there in the mornings. The pub food is great and is of course casual. The dining room is more formal and is also quite good. This is a destination hotel not just a stop while you are traveling.

    « Historical Delight »

    The hotel was a magnificent example of an old historical building that has been renovated keeping true to it'sgreat tradition. The staff was very helpful and courteous. The town itself has several sites to visit. Not far is the Andersonville Civil War National Historic Site which is a moving experience.

    We try to stay here whenever we are going through the area. Restored elegant property with a strong southern feeling. Some rooms are a little small, but all are very comfortable with southern decor. Enjoying coctails on their second floor Veranda is hard to beat. This property is about 30 miles off I-75, and if you have the time, it's definitely worth the drive.

    « Great stay with college friends! »

    There were three of us staying here for the President Carter birthday celebration with David Osborn. Having stayed in the Windsor before, I was thrilled that we were able to stay here again for the two nights. We had a two queen suite (308) and the room was large and very comfortable. I love the fact that the hotel has kept the beautiful antiques and look of the 1800's. The beds were nice and cozy with fresh clean linens and there were ample towels and toiletries. We also had breakfast in the dining room which is lovely. Floyd and Brittany were both so very friendly and accommodating. They kept our coffee refilled and were the perfect wait staff with smiles and even remembering what we ordered the first morning! I just can not say enough great things about this hotel and hope to stay again!

    « Nice and enjoyable stay »

    We went to Plains, Ga for the Peanut Festival. Plains is so tiny that there are so few accommodations, so we stayed at the Best Western Plus in Amercius which is about 10 miles away. This hotel got some bad reviews, but we were limited in our choices. The hotel turned out to be perfect for us. I had read where the there was live music in the bar area on Friday nights, so I requested a room as far from the bar as possible. We didn't hear any music at all. We did hear sirens as the Police department is just a block or two away. We did hear trains pass a few times in the night. If you are sensitive to these things, take earplugs. Our room (323) was beautiful and comfortable. The bed was just a little too hard for me at first, but I did sleep comfortably. The room had no weird smells, but the elevator smelled of mothballs. The water pressure in the bathroom was good, and the toilet flushed quietly. The ice and snack machines are close by, but not too close to cause noise. There is a beautiful restaurant on the 3rd floor, and the food was very good. There is outdoor patio on each floor that was nice. It was connected to the bar area on our floor, but at times, there was no one but us sitting there which made it nice for reading. The WiFi worked well. We were very surprised and pleased with our stay, especially after reading many of the bad reviews. No free breakfast. You park on your own on the street or a small parking lot next to the hotel. We did ot have any trouble parking, but loading and unloading the vehicle is not as easy as some places since there is no ramp to roll luggage carts up and down. You have to carry the luggage up a couple of steps.

    « A true hidden gem of Southern Hospitality! »

    Having to travel far too much in Southern Georgia due to work. I have had my share of mediocrity hotels to "Is this all you got!" Lodgings. It was truly a blessing to land in this hotel downtown Americus! This hotel is where one would want it to be! You are within walking distance to several good eating establishments, the restaurant located on the second floor serves good food with excellent staff to wait on you in a period setting of time gone by. My room was nice and comfy for a room from the 1890s the old plaster walls kept the room noise to a bare minimum so one can sleep. The Windsor does have a bar and a second floor that opens to a upper porch to enjoy your routine to unwind. They do offer a wedding suite and one can make arrangements for party reservations. Do check this gem out!

    The Best Western Plus Windsor Hotel is a beautiful historic hotel in downtown Americus. When step through the door you are transported back in time to high ceilings, beautiful rich wood, old-fashioned chandeliers and antique furniture. Everyone I met who works there is friendly and courteous and goes out of their way to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. I loved walking the halls looking at the old pictures from the 1800 and 1900's. Thanks Windsor Hotel!

    This hotel was a pleasant surprise, and not what I expected. Booked this last minute, so wasn't sure what I was walking in to. What I experienced was a travel back in time but with modern amenities. The hotel has historic charm that beat western has maintained. The rooms are clean, the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was clean and had plenty of hot water. There is a bar on the second floor and it had indoor and a very pleasant outdoor patio. Relax under the stars with a drink and a nice view of downtown. I would definitely visit again and recommend for anyone traveling to this area.

    « Gorgeous Old Hotel in Small Town America »

    The Windsor is a beautiful, well-loved Victorian hotel in the heart of a tiny town, Americus, in south Georgia. Great meals, gracious staff, a fabulous porch bar and perfect beds make it worth the stay. This little hotel is one of America's treasures. Worth a trip if you're a Victorian architecture buff. Ask for a private tour in advance of your stay- they are happy to give it.

    This hotel is just lovely. Photos simply can't do justice to this great property. We stayed in the Carter suite. Really nice king bed...nice linens...clean bathroom. The architecture is phenomenal. Beautiful hotel...not one complaint. We had breakfast at Rosemary & Thyme dining room...top notch with a shout out to Floyd..great service and great food. Lunch at Little Brothers..again...top notch. The bar service at Floyd's pub could use some maturity...but otherwise drinks are good and priced well. I would definitely recommend this wonderful hotel....and we will be returning in the future. Thanks Best Western Windsor for an excellent start for our 40th anniversary vacation.

    Stayed here during a tandem bicycle rally for a weekend. Beautiful old railroad hotel that has been lovingly restored to match its time in history. Wonderful staff who are very proud of their property and really enjoy sharing stories and history of the building and the area. The building even has some paranormal activity and is certified as a ghost hotel! Great bar on the second floor with a most awesome porch. Highly recommend!

    « Fabulous historic hotel experience! »

    We recently spent a night in the Presidential Suite in the historic Windsor Hotel. As soon as we walked in, we were awestruck at the beautiful and ornate construction and decor. Joe checked us in and gave us a brief and thorough history of this gorgeous building. He also gave us restaurant and site recommendations, which we found very helpful. We actually had dinner at the hotel bar and the food was really great, but the drinks were even better! The waitress and bartender (she was the same person doing both jobs) was so very polite and so efficient. She was covered with customers and just kept hustling to get everyone's food and drink out correctly and quickly. We had some questions about a certain brand of southern whiskey and she answered all of them and even told us where to buy some in town. Our room was the Presidential Suite and it was awesome! It was located in the tower so we had a great view all the way around. It was also very large, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We really loved the furnishings! We can't wait to return to Americus and stay in the Windsor again!

    « Its Old »

    Yes, its old, but that is what you want when you stay at a historical hotel. You do not want a Disneyesque recreation. The lobby is held in a time warp of the early 1900s. You could imagine sitting there with your favorite movie star from the black and white movie era. You could probably spend the day looking at all the historical pictures that decorate the walls of the entire hotel. But you will want to eat at the Rosemary and Thyme restaurant on the second floor or the bar down the hall. Wood and marble and carpeting are period. Some doors are made from wood salvaged from the original hotel. Our room was very large and had two queen beds. There were some things that had to be modern. There was a flat screen TV, electric lights, a bathroom and air conditioning. If you are very discreet ask the staff and they may tell you a ghost story. Parking is free and next door. You are located in downtown Americus and can walk the old town.

    « An Architectural Treasure & Total First Class Experience »

    If you are looking for a romantic get away, this is the place. Kudos to the current owners for buying this treasure, and the masterful restoration that they have done. This is a rare gem of a structure. One that should be appreciated and savored like a fine wine. There are just too many good things to say about this place. One has to experience first hand the charm and character of by gone days in order to fully appreciate what has become lost in our culture. By all means, eat at the restaurantt for dinner. One of the finest meals we have had any where. The steak dinner prepared with a South American twist is one of the best steaks I have had any where. Just a top flight experience in a truly breath taking atmosphere. We loved the dining experience so much that we returned for breakfast. We all felt the breakfast experience did not live up to the dinner experience. We were expecting eggs benedict or some new and interesting twist on the typical breakfast fare. For the most part, breakfast is fairly typical here. Nothing blew us away. It was good, but lacked the excitement of the previous day's dinner. If you are looking to impress a spouse or significant other, this would be the place to take them. My only issues, and this is splitting hairs, were that the toilet in our room did not flush as well as I liked. The room also did not have a sizable desk for my lap top and other tech requirements. There is only street parking, but that was not an issue for us. Rarely do you get the chance to be surrounded and immersed in a total first class experience. We all just loved this place, and our compliments to the well trained staff and chef who made our experience truly memorable.

    « Thankfully - Still The Same »

    My husband and I again visited the Windsor Hotel for a little get-a-way the end of July. I am more than pleased to report that NOT A SINGLE THING HAS CHANGED since our last stay. The hotel is a true classic, VERY classy, and spotless! The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, it was so incredibly hot and humid that we were unable to enjoy the porch area off of Floyd's Bar - although we tried. But the bar itself is very comfortable and the staff very personable. The restaurant, Rosemary and Thyme, was again OUTSTANDING - and will be reviewed separately. We can not wait until we can plan another trip...

    Beautiful historic building with well trained and knowledgeable staff. The food at the restaurant was excellent. It is centrally located in downtown Americus, and near historic sites such as Andersonville. I would stay here again for business or pleasure. The room was very clean and I was comfortable walking around my room barefoot (a rarity). I definitely recommend the Windsor to anyone wanting to visit Americus or the surrounding area.

    « We had a lovely stay at the Windsor Hotel! »

    We had a lovely stay at the Windsor Hotel. We were in the area to visit Plains and Jimmy Carter's Sunday School class and chose the Windsor because of its history and excellent ratings. This is a lovely, historic hotel built in 1892 and many famous people have stayed here over the years, from Presidents Roosevelt and Carter, to Ty Cobb and Shoeless Joe Jackson, to Al Capone, and more recently Kelly Clarkson. The rooms are large, comfortable, and spotlessly clean. My good friend and I along with our kids had two adjoining double queen rooms and were very comfortable. Each room has a mini fridge, a Keurig, a ceiling fan, a flat screen TV with HBO, and very comfy beds. The interior of the hotel is absolutely stunning with hand carved wood and antique furnishings. There are three restaurants - a high end restaurant called Rosemary and Thyme, a pub called Floyd's, and a sweet shop. We were with kids so we chose the pub for dinner and it was very good - great burgers and fries and salads. There is free and ample parking on the streets around the hotel. The staff at the Windsor were so friendly and so helpful - they gave us a map of the area, a historic driving tour map, and when they found out we were going to Sunday School in Plains, detailed directions to the church and very helpful instructions on how to make sure to get in as it's a very popular event! They also told us where to eat breakfast before church as not a lot was open the time of day that we'd need to have breakfast. The 3rd floor of the hotel is supposedly haunted but we didn't run into any ghosts! Definitely stay here if you are in the area and be transported back in time.

    The first place you should stop is at the visitors Center. It is just down from the Windsor Hotel. We walked around the little town and saw a lot of the old buildings.

    « Wonderful... if you like historic hotels »

    Americus is a beautiful town with a downtown area that is at the beginnings of revitalization. The Windsor Hotel, although branded as a Best Western, works hard to remain the historic property it once was. We loved the lobby and historic photos. Our room had a VERY unlevel floor but we decided it was charming. There is a bar on the 2nd floor and Saturday night was quite loud until the wee hours of the morning but we knew the property was sold out for a wedding and we went with the flow. The front desk staff were very professional and helpful. We enjoyed the bar also.

    « Worth Going Out of Your Way For »

    The Windsor Hotel made for a memorable stay in Americus. The staff at check-in was pleasant and offered a map of historic homes when my husband mentioned that we planned to explore the town. We stayed in the Bridal Suite and my parents stayed in the Presidential Suite, both were lovely and affordably priced. The hotel is well-renovated, updated nicely with granite countertops, flat panel TVs, etc., but still maintaining the original history and appeal. There is a slight musty odor in the hallway, particularly by the elevator, but I didn't notice that in our rooms or the other public areas of the hotel. While this hotel is not on any of our usual travel routes, it's certainly worth going a bit out of the way for.

    « Cleanliness is NOT overrated »

    This hotel staff needs to do a better job of cleaning the rooms at this location. I showed pictures of a caked on substance in the shower, coffee splatters, mold ring around the toilet, hair in the shower and floor, etc. We ran out of TP in the bathroom and there was none in the room. It was a disaster. I understand that the hotel is old, the furnishings are old, the floor is old, but come on... I don't think that anyone cleaned this room. I cannot say that I will return, ever.

    « Best option around »

    Best option if you're coming to Americus or Plains. Rooms are spacious and you get some K cups for coffee. The bar on the second floor is a good spot and a lot of locals will come out on the weekends too. There is plenty of free street parking around the hotel and there are a bunch of shops and a few little restaurants on the street.

    We booked the Windsor at the closed gate to Andersonville Historical Site, where we arrived too late to tour. We were at the hotel in under ten minutes. The outside of the hotel was unique and the inside didn't disappoint. We were on a historical tour of a few states, and the hotel unknowingly fit the theme. The front desk clerk was super friendly, asking us about our trip and suggesting the restaurant and pub to fill our night. After checking into our well appointed room, we headed to the pub on the second floor, had appetizers recommended by the bartender, watched a little sports, and spent some relaxing time on the rocking chairs outside the pub overlooking the city. The Windsor Hotel changed our trip from unfortunate to memorable! Would definitely return.

    My husband and I were on a road trip with no particular destination in mind. We came to Americus, Ga to see the Civil War Park. So we made last minute reservations. Not really knowing what we would find. It is right in the middle of town, where you can walk around and enjoy yourself. Visit numerous shops or restaurants. We were also presently surprised at the beautiful building and all the history they had kept in it. The staff was awesome. So nice and helpful. Like AMERICA use to be everywhere. Our room was spacious and very clean. Really can't say enough good stuff about this treasure we found. We would defiantly and highly recommend staying here. We will definitely be back.

    Enjoyed the stay. The hotel was built in the early 1890s so it has the look and feel of the era. We stayed in an executive suite and were pleased with it. The room had a small refrigerator and microwave. The shower had excellent water pressure which was not expected for a hotel of this age.

    « A rare find Best Western »

    This restored hotel was a treat to visit. It was clean and furnished well as a restored building. Desk clerk was readily willing to move us when we discovered a lump of dirt in the middle of the crisp and clean white bed cover. We think that the dirt had come through a vent in the ceiling directly over the bed. Given the overall cleanliness and attention to detail, I am confident that the vent in this room was cleaned post haste after we vacated that initial room. We ate in the dining room at the hotel and thoroughly enjoyed dinner. Enjoyed envisioning FDR addressing the group gathered there in his pre-Presidential years. Would definitely happily return. (Neither saw nor heard any evidence of the hauntedness of the hotel ... Darn!)

Great food and exceptional service. As a matter of fact the entire staff at the hotel was exceptional. The only issue we had was noise. There was a wedding the weekend we were there and some of the guests seem to have enjoyed Floyd's afterward. No fault of the hotel, but it was disappointing. Io would have given a 5 rating otherwise. I would certainly go back and would recommend the hotel to anyone planning to visit the area.

    Had a wonderful time visiting this grand old hotel. Stepping off the elevator onto the second floor balcony was a step back in time. Walk through a windowed, large oak door down a long hall lit by victorian brass sconces. If you squint you can see the chambermaids gliding from room to room. The period furniture-even the beds- were comfortable. The chandeliers, interesting photos and historic details sent me back to a world that is no more. Had a time to just breathe after a rough week at work. Photos of room and a nearby shop's display in window. Front desk lady was very helpful and pleasant.

    If you're into history, this is your place. It was nice for a historic hotel. As such, navigating the stairs to the third floor were a bit cumbersome with bags, specifically the stairs from the second to third floor. They narrowed significantly. The room was nicely decorated (again, in renovated fashion). We didn't have trouble with noise as I read in other reviews, we must have gotten a well located room (in the tower).

    If you like history that will most likely be what draws you to the Windsor. All in all it is a nice place. The restaurant has excellent food. Some things that surprised me was that a hotel of this caliber did not even offer coffee in the lobby for the guest in the morning. I ask for extra coffee for my room coffee pot and was told I would have to pay for anymore that was not in the room upon arrival. There was no seating on the second floor common balcony which I found kinda odd it was such a nice place. We wound up taking seating out of the sitting area and taking out side to sit.

    This past January we fled the east coast snowstorms and took off for the low country. Out final stop was in Americus on a Saturday night. Our plan was to visit Plains on Sunday to attend Jimmy Carter's Sunday School class (which we did). Overall, this is one of the nicest hotels I've stayed at in the Best Western chain. This hotel in particular, the unique character of this old hotel and one of a kind furnishings, was more like a Bed & Breakfast than a Best Western. The only ding I can mention is the absence of a breakfast buffet. They have a nice restaurant with ala carte service ... but I've grown used to a very predictable (and fast) opportunity to serve myself, eat, and be on the road in 5 minutes. The ala carte breakfast was quite good; It's just that my expectation from Best Westerns is a FAST, predictable breakfast buffet. All and all, this is an excellent hotel. We will be back again.

    We were so impressed by the beauty of the Windsor when we entered the lobby. Our check-in hostesses were very friendly and accommodating and even made great meal recommendations for dinner in the restaurant. We were sure we were going to have a lovely evening to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary. We entered our room, 333. The room is large and beautifully decorated. We noticed the floor was really slanted but it's an old hotel so we didn't think too much of it. We left the room to explore the hotel and have an early dinner in the Rosemary and Tyme dining room. Dinner was lovely. We also stopped by the bar for perfectly made after dinner martinis. Our lovely evening ended there. Our room was not only the "worst slanted room" (quoting the hostess when we checked out) but the noisiest room because it was located next to all the outdoor air conditioning units on the roof outside our windows. We didn't sleep a wink. When we complained at checkout and told the hostess we had requested a quiet room when we made the reservation she said she couldn't find the request because we made it through Expedia so there was nothing she could do. She intimated that Room 333 was the worst King room. The hotel was not crowded and they still put us in THE WORST King room! DO NOT STAY IN ROOM 333! We would rate hotel higher if not for the extremely noisy room.

    My son and I are Civil War Reenactors who came to town to tour Andersonville Prison. We stumbled upon this historical hotel and just had to spend the night. We stayed on the 3rd floor I believe off to the left little corridor in room with 10 ft ceilings and beautiful bedding. I immediately felt the presence of something, could not put my finger on it. I told my son, it felt like same spirits we felt in our old house(1863 home), and felt slightly comforted. We left our room, went to eat and were not surprised to hear that the paranormal TV show had spent the night in our corridor. Apparently a young pregnant maid was pushed to her death in the elevator shaft, and she walks the hallways at night. I said my prayers before bed and we had no issues, however, I did show prayerful reverence to this poor young woman. Please be respectful in these old hotels and battlefields, as they are truly hallowed ground for lives cut short. I will always come back to the same hotel when visiting Americus...

    My company put me at the Windsor Hotel in Americus, Ga. What a treat. Thank goodness my wife had decided to travel with me. This place is a must see if you are in the area. I felt like I traveled back in time with a modern feel. This place is as clean as any hotel I have stayed and the employee's are as nice as any. Several restaurants to walk to or you can have great food at the hotel in a formal or casual atmosphere. Be sure to read the history on the internet before going. It has been noted as haunted. We stayed in room 335 and did hear some questionable noises but not as I would describe as haunted. Find out later that the hall we were on does experience the most "activity" of past spirits. It wasn't creepy but more interesting. The modern décor probably keeps it from being creepy. If you are traveling through Georgia on Interstate 75, I highly recommend getting off the path (maybe about 20 miles) and enjoying some southern hospitality at its best.

    Hubs and I went to Americus this past Sunday for a nice short getaway. He booked the Jimmy Carter suite which is on the second third floor of the turret. It was a lovely huge round (of course ??) room, complete with a comfy sofa, two easy chairs, two large storage pieces (one which served as the closet; the other, a highboy, with storage shelves and drawers), a frig, microwave, and a Keurig. The large bathroom had a wonderful shower (I'm picky about water pressure--many choices ??) and a makeup mirror. The king bed was quite comfortable and had a step for shorty--me!! Don't expect to eat at any of the restaurants on Sunday evening though. The entire hotel is beautifully restored. You can read about its history online. The ONLY thing that I could say was slightly off putting was the smells: upon entering the lobby, there is a cloyingly sweet vanilla/sugar cookie smell. Also, upon entering our suite, there was a combination curry and some other unidentifiable aroma. Happily I became acclimated to it quickly---didn't bother D (he says I'm too picky ??). I'd love to return here, maybe at Christmas time??

The clerk went on to give us all the information we needed to see the bible study in the morning and even suggested an Elton John Tribute theater across the street. We end up attending and it was just fantastic! We ate dinner in the restaurant In the hotel and that was a gem!

    I really don't want to tell you how much I love this hotel, because I don't want to make getting a reservation difficult due to popularity. BUT! I would travel to Americus, GA, just to stay in this hotel! The restaurant is AMAZING, the rooms are quiet, clean and comfortable. The hotel's charm is off the chart! There is so much to do and see in the area. I recommend Andersonville, and the POW museum, and of course, Plains, where President Carter lives and teaches Sunday school at Marantha Baptist Church.

    « Totally unepected surprise »

    I wanted a hotel for one night between North Florida and Atlanta. Americus was therefore chosen on location. The Windsor hotel had good trip advisor ratings so I booked it for one night. On arrival one realised it was a was a splendid building, no obvious car park, but lots of free parking on the road, right by the entrance (There is parking around the other side of the hotel). We were greeted well at reception and then went to our room. A well equipped, comfortable room and bath room. The hotel had last been refurbished only a few years ago. It is difficult to describe the hotel to give it justice, but the main area is a large atrium, with balconies around the 2nd and 3rd floors. For dinner we ate in the bar, and breakfast was a magnificent dining room. Very good service, and very sensible prices. It would be worth a long detour to find an excuse to stay here again. Don't to put off because it is a Best Western hotel, it is a very good hotel

    This hotel is just fabulous. The architecture, the pictures with history on the walls, the staff, all were really great and made us feel welcome. We ate in the bar but ordered off the dining room menu and everything was great. Had a much better time here than at the Stanley. Huge rooms well decorated. Lots of history.

    This hotel is GORGEOUS! I was here for my best friends wedding. A little confusing for a small town girl trying to figure out where the hotel was and where in the world to park. I love the antique feel to this hotel, I hope ya'll don't ever change a thing, it felt very homey! There was a play going on during my stay but I missed it! I work at a BW also, but this one makes me think we need to step our game up!!! Hope to stay here again in the future!!! -Also, I have to say that the housekeepers who work here do an amazing job! Everything in the room looked brand new, and that is including their bathroom!

    I had a wonderful, relaxing stay at the historic Best Western Plus Windsor Hotel. It is a beautiful property but what truly sets it apart are the people who work there. Floyd, who works in the hotel restaurant, greeted us with a smile every morning and was the most attentive, friendliest and most thoughtful waiter I have even encountered. The food was delicious for both breakfast and dinner. I'm so glad I had the chance to stay at this lovely hotel.

    In so many categories, I wished there was a way to express that this was better than excellent! Walking into the lobby was like walking into a time of long ago so we were initially struck by the beauty of the BW Plus Windsor Hotel. The rooms were clean and neatly appointed; the comfort of the premium bedding package was a big surprise; and the entire staff at the desk and in the restaurants were very helpful. We were there on a history tour of Andersonville but we will be back to see and enjoy more of Americus and we will stay at BW Plus Windsor Hotel!

    Amazing restoration of a beautiful historic hotel. Very comfortable rooms, Cool, leaning creaky floors. Beautiful archetecrtural details, wood work. Haunted? I doubt. The restaurant good. The hotel desk failed to communicate reservations to the restaurant but the restaurant staff accommodated just as we were about to go ape. Our room was noisy, over the kitchen so we were glad to have earplugs. Always travel w earpligs. Of course we would stay there again and would recommend.

    « Always amazing »

    I returned to the Windsor this weekend to attend a college reunion of sorts (lots of old geezers in attendance including myself). I have stayed at this hotel many times and it seems that every time I do, I am always amazed at its' elegance and charm. It has a special atmosphere that, due to it's age and history, very few hotels, especially in Georgia, can ever have. As you walk the halls, you can only imagine how it was during the hotel's early years, feel grateful that it has been restored and that one can still enjoy this building. While it certainly has the modern conveniences we expect in a hotel, the Windsor offers a unique journey into the past that Americus and those of us who appreciate this wonderful hotel are very fortunate to have.

    We spent two nights at the Windsor when we went to attend church at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, GA, and listen to former President Jimmy Carter teach his Sunday school class. It was our second time staying at the Windsor, but the first since it has become part of the Best Western family. I've stayed in quite a few Best Western hotels, but none like this historic old inn. Our stay was very pleasant. Just spending the night at the Windsor is a rewarding experience. Its like stepping back in time. It is a beautiful hotel on the national register of historic places and is worth going to Americus just to visit and stay at the Windsor.

    We enjoyed our stay after visiting the Andersonville National Park. The Windsor still retains the charm of 1892 complete with Georgia pine and Italian flooring.

    « A very uncomfortable and disturbing stay »

    We stayed at the Windsor Hotel on December 31, 2015. We had previously stayed at this hotel and had enjoyed it and wanted to return. Unfortunately, we were very uncomfortable and unhappy with our stay and the hotel has yet to address the issue with us, despite an employee's assurance that they would do so. Our evening started out well with a lovely dinner in the on site restaurant. We retired to our room around midnight - the loud band in the lobby was not really our thing, but we were located far enough away that we had a nice quiet room. But not for long. The couple in the room across from us came back to their room about 12:10 and proceeded to drunkenly shout, slam doors, come out in the hall and yell at each other. I tried to call the hotel desk from both an inside and an outside line and no one ever answered in over an hour of trying. In retrospect I wish I had called the police directly - this was obviously a domestic incident which I was not about to get into the middle of. At about 1:30 there was a lull in the action and I dressed and went to the lobby where I tried to get someone at the desk to help me. Someone did come up to the hall after I went back up, but I don't know if they even talked to anyone or if the other people had just passed out by then. My husband and I were extremely uncomfortable and extremely disturbed at having been trapped in our room with no access to hotel staff for help. In the morning we asked to speak with a manager. No one was on site. At the time of our check out we spoke with Cynthia who said that she would follow up on the incident and would get back to us. She stated that she would automatically give us a 25% discount and stressed that she would follow up with management and would get back to us. Four weeks later - there was no credit on our credit card statement and we have not heard a word from the hotel.

    This is a beautiful hotel. It's been there since 1897 but renovated in the late 1990's I think. There is an upscale restaurant in the hotel and a nice bar. We just had a couple of drinks and french fries in the bar. Our room was spacious with 2 double beds, a microwave, refrigerator and lots of space to move around in. If you're plan is to visit Jimmy Carter's Sunday school class, it's worth it to stay here and drive the 15 miles rather than stay in Plains.

    Very impressed with the ambiance and history of hotel. After years of visits to Americus, looking forward to spending the night here surrounded by its architectural, historical beauty we finally stayed. Unfortunately, the cleaning solutions were strong in the first room, my wife and children had to help to a second room after clerk refused a refund. The next morning we awoke in a small out of the way room overlooking an alleyway. This was followed by a great breakfast in the spacious restaurant. Thus, if you are chemical sensitive go to the Plains Hotel in nearby Plains. Otherwise stay and enjoy the ambiance and breakfast.

    The Windsor Hotel in Americus, Georgia is the best hotel in all of Georgia. Everyone should stay at the Windsor. It is a magnificent Victorian era hotel. You feel like you have gone back in time or on a movie set. The hotel is absolutely breath taking. Even more amazing is the fact that Windsor is located in the heart of a beautiful small southern town. There is so much history all around you ready to be explored. The hotel staff is great. They are polite, friendly, and helpful. The bar is great and veranda outside of the bar is amazing. They even have wicker rocking chairs. Make sure to eat breakfast. The dining room is amazing and with the rising sun fills with morning light. My friend said she felt like she was eating breakfast in the movie the Titanic because the room was so impressive.

    A great property. This is a historic inn and has been nicely updated. We had a king room which I believe is one of two; it is interior and had no view which was inconsequential; the air compressors were outside the windows which caused us some concern, this was not a problem when we went to sleep. We enjoyed the historic information hung on the walls of the lobby and common areas. A good stay.

    Honestly the hotel is pretty amazing. Loved the old time feel and the spacious rooms. The food and beer and mixed drinks were awesome. Even had a great time talking to the receptionist, who recommended several great spots. Despite this, I would say the downer on my stay here was the fact that one of the bartenders nonchalantly implied that a nearby bar was 'not a great place' because it was full of black people. Can't say that I was at all ok with that. I hope this changes in the future, as the rest of the hotel was an awesome experience.

Also the WiFi was weak, again not a big deal. I forgot to mention either of these as i checked out, , but when a survey arrived I mentioned both. Under a week later I got an email from the manager specifically mentioning each issue and how they addressed each to prevent it in the future.

    « Beautiful lobby but... »

    We were impressed when we walked into this hotel (even though parking/unloading can be a pain) because the lobby is gorgeous and it was decorated for Christmas which made it even more beautiful. But we were creeped out when we got to the room. I always pull the sheets on the beds in hotels to see if there are any obvious signs of bed bugs. Didn't see any bed bugs signs but when I pulled the sheets loose on one of the beds in our room, there was a large stain that appeared to be an old blood stain. Nasty. Mattress should have been taken out of service. We were told we got the last nonsmoking room when we checked in so we didn't ask to change rooms that night (an unpleasant night of little sleep perhaps because of this), but we reported it to the desk when we checked out the next morning. I expected to hear something back but no one from the hotel contacted me. If you stay in this admittedly beautiful hotel, I recommend you check the mattress.

    In historic downtown Americus, you find an old, elegant lady of a hotel - the Windsor Hotel now part of the Best Western hotel chain. Don't be mistaken, it is not your typical Best Western. Entering the lobby is like entering a movie set. The 53 guest bedrooms are decorated with period pieces, don't lack any comfort and have all the amenities one expects and needs. Checkin was quick and courteous. The staff was friendly and helpful quickly responding to requests. We stayed at the hotel on Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, the highly rated Rosemary and Thyme Restaurant was closed as were all other restaurants in the area.

    You can not find a better hotel... I have stayed at the best and worst all over the world but nothing beats the charm, personal attention and amazing beauty of this historical hotel. We met the owners years ago during one of our 4 stays at this hotel. They actually gave us a personal tour throughout the ENTIRE hotel including the basement and attic. Who does that? It was incredible. The front desk staff even remembered us from our previous stay! To think we stayed in the same hotel as President Roosevelt and President carter stayed was just so interesting. In fact, Mr. & Mrs. Carter still come to the hotel for delicious meals in the main dining room from time to time. When you stay here, you feel as though you know everyone and feel right at home from the start. The rooms are so beautiful and so CLEAN! I'm picky about the rooms I stay in while traveling and they must be clean. The Windsor is just spotless each time we visited. It is located next to the birth place of Habitat for Humanity and about 5 min to Maranatha Baptist Church where Mr. Carter holds bible study most Sundays when he is home. My 12 year old daughter loves every bit of this experience as it will impact the rest of her life. Next time, we plan to stay at the Plains Inn but only for personal friendship reasons. If you are ever passing through or have plans to attend service at Maranatha, stay at the Windsor and you will NOT be disappointed. It will be a memory to last a lifetime.

    Like stepping back in time when you enter from the main entrance in the front of the building.

    The Windsor of Americus, Georgia is certainly one of the grand old hotels in America. You cannot enter the lobby without trying to take in the beautiful old building from 1892. My wife and I have traveled the country, staying in the "old" hotels whenever possible: The Grand Hotel of Mackinac Island, The Copley Square in Boston, The Menger in San Antonio, the Broadmore in Colorado Springs, and the Brown Palace in Denver are some of our destinations. We place the Windsor in the category of must visit hotels. Besides the hotel and our room, we thoroughly enjoyed excellent upscale meals in the main restaurant (it too was beautiful), and the prices were incredibly modest. The staff was very welcoming. Our visit was for family search, and the hotel sets the mood. Located in downtown Americus, the historic hotel is just blocks from "Prince Street", named for our family. Loved the experience.

    « You will not believe it is a Best Western »

    We were planning a trip to see Jimmy Carter in Plains, Georgia. I was actually searching for a hotel where I could use my points to pay for the room. The Windsor came up as a Best Western. Let me tell you, this may be a Best Western, but it is not what you would normally expect! This is one of their Plus hotels. It is actually a restored 1890's era hotel. We were very impressed with what we found on arrival. The lobby is an elegant example of that era. Beautifully done. Our room was huge, with high ceilings, a walk in closet and generous bathroom. We had a room with a beautiful king size bed that was very comfortable. Linens were of a good quality as were the towels. While it was over 80 degrees outside and quite humid, the air conditioning made it nice and frigid for sleeping. The shower was very nice with really hot water and good pressure. Within the hotel there is also an elegant restaurant as well as an ice cream parlor, a pub (also old world elegant) and a bistro. The restaurant was fantastic. And, considering the quality was very reasonably priced. I highly recommend that you stay at this hotel if you are ever in the area. It would be worth a trip to the area just to stay here!

    « Quirky and fun »

    The Windsor Hotel in Americus , Georgia is a delight. Quirky and fun, it evokes a Victorian feel. The rooms on the third floor have sloping floors, but that does not deter from the hotel's appeal. Don't expect a modern institutional look. This hotel was originally built in 1892. The linen wall paper and marble floor in the lobby evoke the atmosphere of grand hotels of the era.

    « Lovely Historical Hotel »

    Staying at the Windsor was a truly lovely experience. The charm of the old hotel was amazing. The staff, from the front desk, to Floyd's Pub, to the wonderful Rosemary and Thyme Dining Room were all professional and yet friendly. My room was very comfortable with all amenities and beautifully decorated. I did have a room facing Lamar Street, which I requested, and I was aware of the traffic just outside. But, it was not objectionable. I loved being able to look out the window at the lovely historic buildings across the street from the hotel. It was an overall wonderful experience and I will definitely plan to return when I'm in the area. The Southern Charm was amazing...........

    « Beautiful Hotel BUT.... »

    If two senior citizens book a room at the senior rate, why in the world would you give them the room that is absolutely the farthest one away from the lobby and front desk? Check it out. Room 227 is the last room down two very long hallways. We did not appreciate having to lug our suitcases a block away from the lobby! Otherwise, the hotel is a beautiful place. Except for the walk everywhere we had to go (lobby, restaurant, ice machine), the hotel is wonderful. B ut they need to be more attentive to senior citizens.

    « Beautiful, historic, but noisy. »

    The Windsor is located downtown within walking distance of several restaurants and shops. There is a wonderful bakery adjacent to the lobby, though its hours are limited. The rooms are well furnished, modern, and clean, yet they retain their historic charm and character. The lobby is also spacious and beautiful. The only downside is the noise. If you have a room with a window you will hear traffic from the street all night long. Additionally, the hotel hosts many events connected to the local state university as well as other business interests. This brings a lot of noise to the hotel. You can hear every person as they walk down the hallway at night. It is a beautiful facility and a historic place to stay, just bring your earplugs.

    « Great history and beautiful hotel. »

    I was recommended The Windsor by a family member a few weeks ago. I was on my way home and decided to call and see if there were any rooms available that particular night. There were rooms available and at what I thought a great price. The person on the phone was very polite and when we arrived, about an hour later, we met Erica. She was the one that took my reservation and being this hotel had history, she began answering all of my questions about the hotel. She seemed genuinely excited to explain the history. My fiancé and I spent at least an hour just looking at the architecture of the hotel and some of the furnishings and photos throughout the hotel. it is one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed at and the room was comfortable and clean. If you've never heard of this hotel, like me, please look it up and book your weekend getaway.

    The hotel was beautiful and the room was huge. The staff was helpful and friendly. We also ate in Floyd's Pub - and it was delicious! There's also a wonderful little bakery just off the lobby. My only issue was that we had a double bed and a queen would have been more comfortable.

    « Interesting trip to the past »

    This historic hotel has a lot of charm especially in the lobby. The rooms have all the modern amenities but still have an back to the past feel to them. We stay here every year during my wife's family reunion due to location. The Andersonville Fair and Civil War re-enactment are on the same weekend as the reunion so the hotel is conveniently located to this event and Plains, GA. While I agree with some reviewers that there are some noisy areas of the hotel, one should remember that it was built in 1892 so sound deadening probably wasn't a key feature back then. We always enjoy breakfast at the hotel and the staff have always been friendly and courteous.

    « Noisy, Poor wait list policy »

    The hotel is a great old hotel that has been restored. Some of the restorations have worn but the lobby is still interesting to view. The rooms are clean and the beds are reasonably comfortable. Our room was small and there was a lot of noise from cars on the street. We were on the wait list for this hotel and when we a room became available, the staff did not tell us the rate had increased significantly due to the fact that we were closer to our check-in date. We were very unhappy when we arrived at 7:30 pm and we were told of the upcharge. I would visit the lobby to view the inside of the hotel but staying in a room is really not that special, especially given the street noise and the level of comfort of the beds.

    « Ambiance is excellently done »

    great staff, pleasant stay. Clean room, excellent internet reception, loved the history of this hotel. Only one complaint was the outside smoking on the outside porch; had to move twice, then gave up. The employees were the smokers, which I thought was rude. I know they should get breaks, but most places I've stayed, allowed smoking away from the guest areas.

    « Beautifu, historic, comfortable »

    Beautiful hotel in the heart of historic Sumter County, Georgia. Close to historic locations as Plains, Georgia and Andersonville, Georgia. You get a great sense of the significance of the region just by staying here. Price is right, too, along with wonderfully presented food and friendly, professional staff.

    Absolutely the best place to stay in Americus! Antique atmosphere of the Windsor is amazing! Everything is beautiful and top notch. The rooms are very nice with great views! The bar was amazing and also laid back atmosphere with a deck over looking the city. It's in a great location as well. This place is beautiful and amazing! Great service to back it up! Can't be that! You must stay, highly recommended.

    What a classy hotel. Built 1892. Restored in 2010. A trendy Victorian masterpiece. Three story lobby is stunning on entry. Super friendly staff, heart pine wood panelling, flooring, marble, excellent-modern facilities, good security, quiet rooms. Restaurant (separate review) is the best in the region, and so is this hotel! There is a Pub as well. Enjoy!

    « A gem in the rough »

    On the long drive down I -75 from Columbus Ohio to Florida we decided to divert to the jimmy carter national historic site, We stayed on Americus at this wonderfully restored hotel! It is a beautiful place in a downtown that doesn't have much going for it, cool porch on 2nd floor to sit and have a drink . Floors are beautiful golden oak and original marble tiles in lobby. Weird smell on 2nd floor but heard that's not the usual, Are at the restaurant, Rosemary & Thyme and our waitress Destiny was awesome! Great food in a beautiful setting!

    « Surprisingly Disappointing »

    A dozen or so years ago, I began visiting the City of Americus on business and quickly fell in love with the town, the little shops, the surprisingly outstanding restaurants, the breathtaking little theatre, the Rylander. But the treasure I discovered first was the Windsor Hotel, a wonderful 1890's treasure of a hotel. It was recommended to me and it was a delight to stay there. I have used it as my hotel of choice in my many visits to the area since then unless it was completely booked or my client paid for my hotel and booked me in another one. I have reviewed it on occasion here in the past, always recommending it. My previous reviews are there for the reading. So it is unfortunate but I think necessary to report a poor experience here ? one that surprised me and disappointed me very much. For those not familiar with my reviews, I look for several things when I travel: Do I have a sense that I and my possessions are safe? Is the hotel reasonably clean? Is the water pressure good? Does the internet connection work well? Can I control the heat/air conditioning so as to make the room comfortable? Does the overall experience allow me to get a good night's sleep ? can I rest? With respect to this trip, for all the above, the answer was ?yes,? except for the last two: the deficiency was in the air conditioning, and the comfort of the bed itself. Most of my business trips are made alone on this occasion, my partner was able to travel with me so we booked a ?Queen? room ? and that's what we paid for. When we arrived at our room, we had to change quickly and leave for dinner with colleagues. So it was only when we settled in later in the evening that we noticed the size of the bed. I know that the hotel industry has different sizes for queen and king beds ? smaller than sizes marketed for homes. I stay regularly in queen bed hotel rooms because of my height and I'm familiar with that size. This was not that. This was a double bed. My partner and I travel and stay with a friend from time to time ? he has a double bed and we are always aware that we won't sleep as well crammed into that size bed. This was that size bed. As a result we had trouble sleeping. I'm not sure whether we were booked into a room that is called a queen-size bed room and isn't, or whether they were out of queen rooms and put us into a double room. Either way, we were uncomfortable and disappointed. And we didn't sleep well. Added to that was a noisy air conditioner that is controlled by a thermostat and the fan was loud. Trying to keep the room comfortable in a Georgia summer meant that the air conditioner cut on and off all night and kept waking us up. Between the bed and the air conditioner, we were never really able to sleep well, which made both of us tired for all of our other events. It was the first unacceptable experience I've had here. It seems that in order to get a bed that will fit us, we're going to have to pay a premium price. Or stay somewhere else. As much as I haved loved this special place, I hate to even think that.

    Beautifully restored hotel, pleasant staff. Quaint little part of GA with true southern hospitality. The entire place is neat, comfortable, and safe. We walked around downtown on a Sunday evening in the dark and felt extremely safe and enjoyed the old town and old buildings.

    This hotel is a gem & Best Western keeps it nicely polished. The history & character of this hotel is remarkable. I would recommend it for any stay for any length of time. The closet was huge & the room was beautifully furnished. the bed was the most comfortable I have slept in. The pillows were a little hard, but other than that everything was impeccable.

    « Best Place to Stay in Americus »

    Without a doubt the Windsor is the place to stay in Americus. Our room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. We were there (this time) to hear Jimmy Carter teach Sunday School in nearby Plains, GA. The service at this property is way above average. My wife and I have stayed here several times and will most certainly stay here again in the future.
