Macon, Georgia is known for its Antebellum homes and Georgia music landmarks. But the new Hotel Forty-Five is the newest addition to the historic downtown. The hotel gets its name from the forty-five-degree angle it sits at.
A number of features from the building’s past as a Banker’s Health & Life Insurance Company remain, including a directory with the original office inhabitants. The tile floor and elevators are part of the Art Deco-inspired design, along with the architectural features. Best of all, it’s a short walk from the city’s attractions.
