Need nice hotel near Furman University and downtown Greenvil

Hi All,

Very familiar w/ downtown Greenville, but we are coming for the Scottish games at Furman over the Memorial Day Weekend. We got screwed out of a reservation at a River Street condo on VRBO, so am now looking for a nice, medium priced hotel near Furman and downtown. Ideas? Thanks. Oh-- we'll have 4 people, husband and I and 2 adult children of opposite sex. We'd like to be closer to Furman than downtown as we usually stay in downtown.

If you prefer to be closer to Furman, then you'll probably need to look at hotels north of the campus in Travelers Rest. The Hampton Inn is decent and is the top hotel in TR.

Most of Greenville's hotels are in downtown or locations south or east of downtown; virtually nothing between downtown and the Furman campus.

Since the area between Furman and downtown Greenville is not upscale and the Route 25 has more industries than houses, you will not find many decent hotels in that part of the Upstate. Since you need a vehicle to travel to Furman and as you know Greenville is not that big or has too much traffic, you get a better choice of hotels in downtown or on the Eastside.

Did you look at the Hilton off of I-385? It's 5-10 min from downtown and still only 25 min or so to Furman, if I remember correctly. Interestingly, it's cheaper than the Hilton Garden Inn which is in a more hip, popular shopping area, but not in the downtown area.
