Modernity and the old-fashioned merge on Main Street in Greenville in the form of the new AC Hotel. While you may expect these two aspects to compete or conflict, the AC managed to meld the qualities seamlessly.
Let’s discuss the hotel’s more contemporary and innovative side first. This eight-story retreat features 196 guest rooms and suites, unique options for food and beverages, a rooftop, speakeasy, TechnoGym, almost 29,000 square feet dedicated to meetings or other events, and a lovely private collection of art that features more than 100 works and 35 local artists. Despite its massive size, the AC promises each suite has a stunning view and “no room will disappoint.”
Conveniently located right in the electric heart of downtown Greenville, the hotel allows access to all the best spots where excited tourists and spirited locals can go to mingle amongst countless dining, shopping, and entertainment options.
Favorites in the area include the Peace Center performing arts center and the Greenville Zoo, both of which offer programs for guests of all ages. The Peace Center features a wide array of acts such as musicians, films, and musicals. Another treat in the vicinity of the AC is the River Falls Spa. The spa is located just a one-minute drive or a three-minute walk away from the AC. It offers numerous indulgent services such as facials, hair and scalp treatments, therapy baths, manicures and pedicures, and even couple’s massages.
Out and About
The local area around the AC is teeming with fresh, interesting things to do, see, and eat. The inside of the AC is just as vibrant. The hotel features multiple dining options. For example, there’s Paloma, a buzzing, Spanish American fusion restaurant located on the ground floor with both inside and outside seating. Upstairs, you’ll find Juniper, offering sweeping views from the eighth floor and extending outside onto the roof. The urban gin bar also offers seasonally-driven refined small plates.
If you’re looking to get outdoors, Greenville is a hub for nature and all its majestic beauty. Within a mile and a half of the AC are multiple biking trails, fitness trails, and tennis courts. If you don’t mind going a little further, there are also opportunities for mountain biking, horseback riding, and miniature golf all within several miles of the hotel.
Fall Park, fondly called “one of Greenville’s greatest treasures,” is located just a quick five-minute walk away from the hotel. The iconic Greenville park is breathtaking. There are striking views of waterfalls, one-of-a-kind architecture, public art, an array of local flowers, and more.
For those with younger travelers, visit nearby Linky Stone Park, otherwise known as the Children’s Garden. This travel gem is tucked away next to a babbling creek and offers picnic tables, walking paths, and a playground.
Greenville has lots to offer for every kind of traveler. Whether you’ll be enjoying plush pillows and pedicures or nature adventures, the AC has the perfect room for you. A weekend here is a weekend well spent.
