Thomas Jefferson Hotel

The Thomas Jefferson Hotel represents a long lost era of grand hotels. Standing at 19 stories and 287 feet tall, it quietly sits on downtown Birmingham's west end reminding us of the past that once was. Completed in 1929, it sits at 1631 2nd Avenue North.















Due to events in the past couple of months and now that it is under contract for sale, the building is now off limits. I was glad to make it in one final time right before it was locked up.

What a beautiful place.

I am glad you got in and was able to share some pics.

Nice touch adding the price list and floor plan.

I'm going to randomly pop in here on this thread, since it's been over a year since my last post.

Now thats out of the way, those are some nice pics. I was able to get in about 2 years ago, and it really hasn't changed much at all I see. The wall of tv's is still there, and that collection of liquor bottles is also still there.

I might make a big thread of my activities soon. Glad to see the SE hasn't completely died.

It looks like it was a grand hotel in its day! Thanks for the photos. Do you know the year that the price sheet was for? Knowing that might put the prices in an interesting perspective.

Thanks for the photos!

I found a newsletter for a 1967 convention in Birmingham that had the same prices and name listed on. I don't know how often the prices fluxated, but that was the price in '67 at least.

This makes me sad.

At least I had one of the best days ever there earlier this year.
