The Mississippi Delta is brimming with rich history. The Cotton House, located right in the heart of the Delta, a landmark along the Blues Trail, celebrates the spirit of the south. It is a fixture in Cleveland, Mississippi.
The Cotton House is the self-proclaimed “living room” of downtown Cleveland. It blends southern tradition with modern luxuries, enhancing both your comfort and your Delta Blues Trail experience in one fell swoop.
Set right in the center of historic Cotton Row, you’ll enjoy a plethora of boutiques and shops just outside its doors.
Cleveland is a beautiful city to take a walk and shop, with its brick-paved sidewalks, immaculate landscaping, and Victorian style lighting along the way.
The Cotton House
95 rooms fill this larger-than-life hotel, along with 6 elaborate suites. The classic guest rooms are warm and welcoming with a touch of luxury.
The meticulously chosen decor promotes relaxation and a sense of home, but with the flair that we all wish we had in our homes (Think: chandelier).
You’ll enjoy free wifi, premium TV channels, a lush mattress under cozy sheets, and comfortable robes.
The Cotton House suites are truly a home away from home. (You’ll find the swoon-worthy chandeliers in the suites, too!)
All the same amenities of the guest rooms but with significantly more space.
A king bed graces the bedroom. The couch in the living area pulls out into a queen bed. A kitchenette enhances your stay.
Of course, no room in the middle of blue country would be complete without music and the Cotton House does not disappoint.
Each room lets you surround yourself with the sound of the blues favorites when you set the needle down on an old fashioned vinyl record set a top a classic record player.
Eat & Drink at the Cotton House
You don’t even need to leave The Cotton House to find great, southern eats in Cleveland, Mississippi.
The Delta Meat Market
The Delta Meat Market is both a specialty grocer with meats, cheeses, and artisan goods, and a full-service restaurant. The dishes are steeped in southern tradition, true to The Cotton House vision.
Take advantage of the grab-and-go options when you’re in a hurry to get back to exploring Cleveland. Or make a reservation and stay awhile.
Honestly, the Delta Meat Market is not to be missed on your visit to Cleveland.
This restaurant is garnering national attention for good reason.
Delectable bites and an inviting atmosphere will make you want to stay a while.
Oh, and did I mention the chef and owner is a James Beard award nominated chef?
There’s a reason that people are flocking to this establishment and a lot of that has to do with Chef Cole Ellis!
On the rooftop you’ll find Bar Fontaine, an upscale bar and restaurant. Enjoy European-style cuisine using locally sourced ingredients.
And, of course, an extensive array of wines, cocktails, booze, and draft beer. I recommend finding a seat on the rooftop patio for a one-of-a-kind view of downtown.
This is the only place in Cleveland with a rooftop experience.
More Reasons to stay at the Cotton House
Right on the grounds of The Cotton House, you’ll find Balance Fitness Studio. Step into one of the classes offered, including yoga, pilates, cycling, and more.
For the foodies out there, see if the Cotton House offers any wine tastings, beer classes, a charcuterie demo, or a curated dinner with wine pairings during your stay.
