Davenport Hotel

World famous since it opened in September of 1914 the Davenport H= otel (named for Louis Davenport) was the first hotel to offer air condition= ing and of course, the well-known delight, Crab Louis. Walking the halls yo= u can hear the whispers of the great men and women who walked there before = you; royalty, stars of stage and screen, and just about every American pres= ident of the 20th century.


Closed in 1985, the hotel remained closed until 2000 when local e= ntrepreneurs Walt & Karen Worthy purchased the entire city block and th= en spent the next two years to make the Davenport Hotel grand again. The ho= tel's public spaces and ballrooms were restored to what they would have loo= ked like when they were new.
