“Charming Historic Hotel in Florence, just restored”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

We enjoyed so much spending the night at the newly restored & historic Hotel Florence! The tasteful and trendy decor is highlighted by the original wood floors and brick walls. The uplit bar is a focal point in the lounge. The bedding was just heavenly and brunch was delicious at Victor's Bistro. I highly recommend this for a weekend getaway or a business trip. You won't want to stay anywhere else when you are in Florence. I cant wait to go back!

We recently stayed at Hotel Florence and what a treat it was. We have traveled and stayed at many places but this hotel ranks among the best! The historical preservation was very unique to say the least. The bed was absolutely amazing! We also enjoyed the in room Keurig coffee maker, plantation shutters along with the spacious & modern bathroom just to name a few of the many features! Also check out Victor's restaurant while here. Thank you for an amazing stay and we will be back!

Such a nice place to stay, we felt like we were on vacation! Hotel Florence features new, immaculately clean rooms that are decorated beautifully with plush, comforable beds. Had dinner at fabulous Victors Bistro located conveniently in the hotel, and then enjoyed a wonderful nights sleep. Will definitely be back!

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Florence recently. The rooms were wonderful and the staff was delightful! We were very pleased to find a Keurig in our room!! We were very impressed with the restoration and historical preservation of the property.


The restaurant on the first floor, Victor's, offered exquisite dining with a wonderful atmosphere. Our breakfast at Victor's the next morning was just as delicious as our dinner the night before!

Let me start out by saying the bed was amazingly comfortable. It was the best nights sleep in quite awhile. The rooms were very clean with a modern charm to them. The hotel itself is charmingly unique. I recommend taking a tour of the hotel to learn some of the historic facts and the restoration and preservation efforts taken for this hotel. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. I really enjoyed Victor's restaurant and bar located near the lobby. There is also nice outdoor seating on the patio of Victor's. You are within walking distance of a couple of other restaurants, a coffee shop and a unique wine and chocolate shop. The location is great for business travelers as well. It is close to the airport and very central to most major businesses and both hospitals. I strongly recommend staying at Hotel Florence for a fun and unique experience.

Finally, we can stay downtown and not have to be at the interstate. It is only steps away from the Francis Marion Performing Art Center, McLeod Hospital, art galleries, and the farmers market! Hotel Florence was full of peple eating in the gracious dining room and meeting friends at the bar at Victors! It was a busy and happy place. When we went upstairs to our suite, it was the opposit, quiet,calm and especially relaxed with the best of linens, towels and understated but elegant furniture.
This will be a great place to stay as downtown Florence continues to grow!

Let me start off by saying I have traveled extensively both at a national and international level. Hotel Florence ranks above and beyond! To cap off my birthday weekend, some girlfriends and I planned an evening out in Downtown Florence. After enjoying vino and chocolates from Dolce Vita (a spectacular new wine/chocolate bar), and cocktails from Victor's downstairs we were whisked away to the utmost in sophistication and glamour in our hotel suite. The decor is a cross between West Elm and Restoration Hardware and resembled something you would see in a major metropolitan city, simply gorgeous! The beds were amazingly comfortable! The staff was courteous and genuinely gracious. I cannot wait to visit again and stay at Hotel Florence!
