The Hamilton Howell House was built in 1890 by Alexander Hamilton, Jr., the leading African American contractor and builder in Atlanta as his family’s home. The Howell/Youngblood family acquired the house in 1984, making them only the second family to live in the home since its built 95 years earlier. Whether a business traveler or just looking to getaway, The Howell/Youngblood’s carefully and lovingly restored this historic home and now made it available for you to enjoy.
The rooms of the home have been named for American cultural icons. Aretha Franklin – the Queen of Soul, but whose talent spanned all genres of music. Sun Ra – the avant-garde jazz musician. W.E.B. DuBois – scholar, author, philosopher and activist. Elizabeth Catlett – painter, print maker and sculptor. Maya Angelou – poet, singer, memoir and activist. John Coltrane – pioneering jazz saxophonist and composer.
Spend the night in our Coltrane Suite or one of our three beautifully appointed bedrooms – the W.E.B. Dubois, the Elizabeth Catlett, the Maya Angelou. Each bedroom has a private bathroom, spa quality toiletries and the latest technology. No matter which room you choose, you will rest in luxurious comfort.
The newly renovated home is complete with a state-of-art kitchen, business center, solarium with built-in spa and a deck and patio ideal for outdoor entertaining or just relaxing to the soothing sound of the backyard waterfall.
