  John Marshall  



The Hotel John Marshall opened in 1929 as the largest hotel in Virginia. Its rooms welcomed Elizabeth Taylor, Mary Tyler Moore, and Elvis Presley along with political figures such as Presidents Nixon, Ford, and Carter.  After sitting vacant for over 20 years (save a few attempts to open) the building recently underwent a $80 Million renovation, spanning two years of construction to strip it back
to the bones and restore it to its original 1920's grandeur.
