We truly enjoyed every aspect of The Willcox. We went to Aiken to visit our family. I had called and spoken to Sarah numerous times and she was patient and professional every time. It was also Sarah who greeted us at check in and walked us up to our room. The Hitchcock Suite was beautiful; the beds including the pull... More

Talk about southern charm!! We travel a lot and this hotel rates up there with the best! Shopping in downtown Aiken was fabulous as well! Matt in the bar made our trip extra special! He pays attention to details! Highly recommend. Spa was worth the trip!

We stopped here while driving thru from Atlanta to Charleston on a whim after reading about it on the Conde Nast Top 100 in the World List and taking note that it was ranked above for example the Peninsula in Chicago. Now let me be clear, it was a pleasant experience but not a Top 100 experience by any means!... More

The warm old world style lobby is welcoming with comfy lounge chairs, small friendly bar and even a complimentary tea cart.
