    Don't miss the alligator statues in and around the hotel. Apparently they used to keep alligators in the fountains in the lobby. Yikes.

    Downstairs bathroom (if you walk in door facing stairs, turn right and go down hall past Gators and Salon) has delicious smelling Molten Brown lotion in the last stall. Yum!

    Watch your step. A 19 year old staff member may accuse paying guests of trespassing at any time. Make sure to have your room key on you at all times.

    In 1956, Elvis kicked off his breakout year with incredible shows at the Mosque. But the older patrons of the Jefferson didn't even recognize the still humble young star dining in their midst! Read more

    Alligator statues serve reminders of the alligators that once resided in the Lobby pools. At one time, Richmonders bought baby alligators as pets. When they got too big, they brought them to live here
