GREENVILLE, S.C., Nov. 26, 2013 – On behalf of AHG Hotels, LLC, and River Street Lodging, LLC, Greenville, S.C.-based Windsor/Aughtry Company announces its development of a 156-suite Embassy Suites Hotel to be located along River Street and the Reedy River within RiverPlace.
The development will include the signature complimentary, cooked-to-order Embassy breakfast and evening complimentary cocktails in a lobby level venue overlooking the Reedy River. Additionally, the hotel will feature a high-end, fine dining restaurant and bar on the lobby level, overlooking the river. A roof-top venue will offer a lighter-fare menu and views of the river and Peace Center Amphitheater to the east, and the Blue Ridge Mountains to the north. The roof-top setting will also have capacity for private functions.
In addition to the multiple restaurant components, the hotel will provide banquet facilities, multiple board rooms and pre-function areas, all with river views. Guests at the hotel will enjoy access to the only indoor, year-round pool in downtown Greenville. The hotel will also include a business center and over-sized exercise facility.
“We believe that offering the only all-suites hotel within or announced in Downtown Greenville, combined with this premier location and the Embassy’s very strong leisure following, will provide the very best lodging addition possible for Greenville’s downtown guests’ needs,” said Paul C. “Bo” Aughtry, III, principal of Windsor/Aughtry. “Additionally, with our Courtyard Marriott and Hampton Inn in such close proximity, but without the larger meeting and banquet capacity of the Embassy, this hotel brings a strong, synergistic addition to our downtown lodging portfolio.”
Embassy Suites is a member of the Hilton Worldwide family of brands and caters to the business traveler as well as the family and leisure traveler.
