Aiken is a little gem of a town that surprises you with it's beautifully landscaped downtown and the Willcox is its understated miniature grand hotel. Tucked away on a side street it is easy to miss and that would be a mistake. This hotel is a study in how small details and extra effort can create an exceptional experience. The rooms are very comfortable and appointed in a classic, elegant style but with the modern touches you expect - like flat screen HD television with Directv. The staff are eager to please and willing to do whatever they can to enhance your stay. The food is exceptional and a very good value. The hotel features a lovely lobby and nice little sitting areas dotted around the hallways. The pool is salt water, very clean and they have created a pool area that is just a treat to hang out in. The fitness center is well equipped and clean and the spa facilities are good. Every facet is well delivered even down to the "light" continental breakfast which was one of the most interesting, home made and beautifully presented, more like an inn or b&b. This hotel is first class but in a casual, comfortable, easy going way. What a nice surprise to find a hotel this good and a town this cute. Can't wait to come back.
