I am not really sure there is any other place to stay in Aiken, literally. I think this is the only hotel. Anyway, the hotel is "nice". Decor may need freshening. The bed though is the best! Our room probably needed a bit more lighting. The bathroom towels probably need to be changed at some point. So it basically is a good hotel. The thing is, I am not sure there are choices if one is in Aiken.

Awesome service! Ned is the best! We came for dinner on Sunday night and had an absolutely wonderful experience. Ned was so attentive and so helpful. The food was fabulous. The mushroom bisque soup was outstanding. The lavender crème brûlée was a perfect cap to our dinner.
