Step back in time and immerse yourself in a truly authentic Delta blues experience like no other. Since 1944 the legendary Riverside Hotel has provided lodging in the Delta for traveling musicians and like-minded folk. Its historical significance and contribution to the Blues is signified by its designation on the famed Mississippi Blues Trail.

The original structure served as the G.T. Thomas Afro-American Hospital. On September 26, 1937, the Empress of the Blues Bessie Smith was taken to the hospital where she died after a car accident outside of Clarksdale. The room where she passed now serves as a shrine to her spirit and the blues.. In 1943, Mrs. Z.L. Ratliff transformed the hospital into a hotel, extending the building to include 20 guest rooms over two floors and has remained in the hands of the Ratliff family since 1957.
As one of the only African American hotels during segregationist times in Mississippi, the Riverside Hotel was very much a safe haven (including listing in the famed Green Book), where black artists who visited Clarksdale could stay. Legendary artists such as Duke Ellington, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Sam Cooke, Ike Turner, John Lee Hooker, Sonny Boy Williamson II, and Robert Nighthawk to name just a few all stayed at the Riverside Hotel.
Today, the hotel is truly preserved in time where the traveler can stay in the very same rooms and sleep upon the very same beds where these legends laid theirs. Still family owned and operated, the Riverside Hotel will provide you with a unique lodging experience: like no other. The rooms and furnishings are modest and indicative of what they would have more than 60 years ago. Simple, spartan but an authentic step back in history.

Gästers tillgång

Step back in time; when touring musicians would stop on their way from one gig or from another.

I’m checking travel destinations off my bucket list and exploring traveling solo as well as with my partner. My husband and I are great guests and also great hosts. We love people and are very social, fun and adventurous. We love live music; especially Blues, Rock and R&B. We are considerate and respectful guests and we appreciate good service and friendly people. We love to travel to the southern US, especially New Orleans where we have visited more than 20 times. My motto: Go Big or Go Home!
