The holidays are a time for traditions- whether it’s baking cookies with your mom, singing carols with friends or putting up the tree with dad. One of Richmond’s oldest traditions is the lighting of the grand Christmas tree at the Jefferson Hotel.
The Jefferson hotel first opened in 1895 and boasts it’s fair share of famous guests, including Charles Lindberg, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Elvis Presley, Calvin Coolidge and more. It is one of 27 American hotels with Mobil Five Star and AAA Five Diamond Hotel ratings. The Jefferson is the epitome of luxury- with rich fabrics, angelic murals, intricate architecture, stained glass and, of course, a grand sweeping staircase. It’s breathtaking but it’s truly unforgettable around Christmas.
The tree lighting starts December 6th at 6:oopm. Make sure to get to the Jefferson early and check out what wonderful life-size gingerbread display the hotel pastry team has created this year! For directions, visit: http://www.jeffersonhotel.com/
