The Jefferson Davis Hotel is a historic commercial inn in Montgomery, Alabama. It was built in 1927 and served as a hotel for the longest time until it was recently turned into an apartment building for the elderly.

The Jefferson Davis Hotel is also noted for its participation in the local events in the city. In the 1940s, it became a part of the Dinkler Hotel Chain. It also housed the WSFA radio studio in the 1930s where African American preachers like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Dr. Ralph David Abernathy broadcasted Sunday morning sermons. However, the building was mainly an exclusively white structure until the desegregation in the late 1960s.

The Jefferson Davis Hotel was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
