The hotel opened with indoor plumbing and heating and introduced the country's first "magnetic annunciator" to call room service. In awe of the state-of-the-art communication system and the first electric light in a Southern hotel, a local declared it "a capital enterprise in a capital building." The name stuck. Throughout the years, the Capital has been a beacon to Southern culture, reflecting the best of the region.
