Description: The Rossonian Hotel was opened in 1912 as the Baxter Hotel. The hotel was designed by architect George Louis Bettcher for Robert Y. Baxter, owner of the Baxter Cigar Company. Although the hotel continued to be owned by the Baxter family, it came under black management in1929 and was renamed the Rossonian Hotel after manager A.W. L. Ross. From 1920s to the1950s, Black jazz musicians stayed at the Rossonian Hotel after their performances at downtown clubs or concerts as the Black musician were not allowed to stay the night at the white locations. Musicians such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Nat King Cole, Billy Holiday, and Ella Fitzgerald stayed and performed at the Rossonian Hotel. The hotel has passed through many hands and in 1995 was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 2005, developer Carl Bourgeois bought the Rossonian Hotel. In 2014, his Civil Technology firm partnered with Sage Hospitality to plan a luxury hotel and condominium complex, with an addition of 105 hotel rooms, 40 condos or apartments, two restaurants, a jazz club, a fitness center, and 60,000 square feet of office space.
