The story of the Travelers Hotel begins in the early 1920s, when it was a bare-bones lodging place for railroad workers who found themselves in Clarksdale. Like many small towns in the Mississippi Delta, Clarksdale has struggled mightily over the years. But its world-renowned reputation as the birthplace of blues music has attracted die-hard music lovers from all over the world and has attracted an influx of artists who nicely complement our existing, vibrant arts scene.

Today, the Travelers Hotel is an equal hotel and community center – a comfortable, eclectic, and modern tribute to the Mississippi Delta and its artistic traditions. Here the sense of place is strong. The lobby is a comfortable space to quietly gather or sit, surrounded by an evolving collection of local art. Our lobby bar offers an impressive selection of regional beer, and there is a small kitchen and conference room for meetings and events. Our guests are invited to relax and unplug as much as possible — we have blazing fast wifi, but there’s no TV in your room.

The Travelers is run by a co-op of people who want to live creatively – some are local, some were drawn to Clarksdale from afar. Our team’s interests and areas of practice vary, but we all share a knack for Southern hospitality and a steadfast commitment to making this community – once called the “Southernmost Place on Earth” – better for all of us. Our co-op also owns and operates a garden center and retail store called the Collective Seed & Supply Co., and a portion of both companies’ revenues fund programs and events that promote engagement, conversation, and collaboration between locals, visitors, and our growing community. encourage team.
