Built on the historic site of the former Huntsville Hotel, an iconic hot spot during the Victorian era, the property features a chef-driven restaurant, a rooftop lounge and is walkable to the city's bustling downtown. In addition to its spacious guestrooms and suites, the property pays homage to the city's rich history through purposeful design and a charitable mission of raising up the Huntsville community. Known as the "Rocket City," Huntsville's origins date back to the space race, and references to these historic moments are woven throughout the custom artwork and offerings of 106 Jefferson. Firmly planted at the center of science and technology, while also offering famed Southern hospitality, guests are immersed in Huntsville's charm the moment they step through the door. The property showcases local, customized artwork that reflects the spirit of the community. Guests dining at Revivalist, the property's onsite restaurant, can enjoy mural artist Robert Bean's work firsthand, as he develops a custom piece on the restaurant's terrace through August 11. Additional nods to the area's history are found via on-property gift shop offerings, in-room partnerships and charitable components. The new lifestyle property will commemorate its launch by honoring its mission to enrich Huntsville through the celebration of local history and giving back to the community. Beginning opening day through the end of August, the hotel will donate 10 percent of all food sales to local charitable organizations. This list includes HEALS, Inc., a non-profit that provides underprivileged children with free dental, medical and optometry care at school-based clinics in the Huntsville area; and the Madison County 310 Board, an organization that provides support to Madison County residents with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. The 115 guest rooms and suites are elegantly appointed to provide all the comforts and amenities for a relaxing getaway. Each guest room features an Enhanced Sleep Experience, which includes a custom Serta Suite Dreams mattress, down pillows, luxurious linens and a down duvet cover. In-room amenities include a 55-inch high-definition television, a spa-inspired bathroom with Gilchrist & Soames bath amenities, a marble vanity and glass-enclosed walk-in shower, a Keurig coffee maker, plush bathrobes, mini-fridge and a steamer/iron with an ironing board. Additionally, the property offers a 24-hour fitness center with an outdoor terrace and a 24-hour business center. 106 Jefferson is ideal for intimate weddings, corporate events and social gatherings. It features 2,110 square feet of flexible event space, including the 1,600 square foot Century Ballroom located off the main lobby with the ability to be divided into two spaces.
