There was nothing particularly wrong with our stay at the Willcox. The staff were very nice, the room was very nice, and amenities are numerous. There is a pool, a bar, a very busy restaurant, and all the conveniences of a well run hotel. Still, there was nothing about our stay that made me think "Wow, I must come back."... More

I know the title sounds like an exaggeration but I'm completely serious! We (my husband and I, along with my brother, his wife, and their 1-year-old baby) had planned a stop in Aiken to break up a long drive from Savannah to Asheville. Although the Willcox certainly seemed lovely from the website, we had no real idea of what to... More

This hotel is an amazing stop to stay at. A very nice historic place to stay with all the little touches. The paints in my room were priceless. Huge king size bed. And a zen room! This was awesome. If you are looking for a place to stay, stay here! 😀

We stayed in the Hitchcock suite and it was absolutely gorgeous. We had a lovely view of the pool from our room and the marble tub was fantastic!! Also the staff, particuarly Kimberly, were so lovely and so helpful. I would love to stay again, I didn't want to leave!! There was also an original Harold Winston in our room... More

My husband had stayed at the Willcox Hotel a few years ago on business and had raved about it. So when we decided we were going to do overnights at least once a month at some of the historic hotels in the South to which we could drive, this was our inaugural trip. We arrived in Aiken on a beautiful... More

I spotted this hotel on Andrew Harper. Then I read a few reviews and was intrigued. Although there were great reviews, we were even more impressed when we arrived. Deservedly so. My conclusion is that words cannot do justice to how wonderful this quaint, comfortable, friendly hotel is. My wife and I travelled to AIken, S.C. to the Willcox Inn... More

We spent the night at The Willcox on our way to the beach for a family vacation. Had a wonderful experience!!! Check in was very easy and the concierge, Kimberly, even took us to our room. Had cocktails and dinner at the hotel both of which were excellent. Our waiter,Rod, couldn't have been any more helpful. Several small touches that... More

We only spent one night but the room was beautiful with everything one could possibly ask for and someone spent a lot of time thinking of all of it. Even a pin cushion with thread, and a pitcher of lemon lime water next to the bed on retiring. It a popular venue for weddings. The restaurant deserves all the raves... More

We did not stay here. I live in Aiken and my daughter booked an appointment at the spa for us on Mothers Day. We enjoyed from start to finish, the best spa experience we have ever have! We had the 90 minute relaxation massage and it was worth every penny. The atmosphere is totally relaxing, attractive, and professional. I cannot... More
