On our way North from Florida we always stay in Santee at the Holiday Inn. Tripadvisors warned of vandalism at the hotel so we opted to try something new....so thankful for the reviews on Hotel Florence. It is awesome. It is conveniently located, very friendly and clean. Bed and sheets are super comfy. After 10 hours of driving...this place is heaven!

On a drive home from kiawah to dc we decided to stop early ( actually my husband was getting sleepy). GREAT stop! Could have been in San Fran or Seattle. Nice rooms. Real art. Dining room was fantastic! I know it's not a hampton inn....but wow what a nice find. Area is still turning, but just stay in, eat and sleep. This may be our regular stop! Vincent's restarant is great. Had the cheese plate with these amazing walnuts. I kid you not they were fantastic! Worth the detour!

I recently stayed at the Hotel Florence for three nights on a business trip. The accommodations were wonderful and peaceful. As part of trip we ate in Victor's the hotel restaurant every evening. I have several food allergies and my waiter the first evening, Chris, was so helpful in making sure that I was able to order food and eat without worrying my entire stay. Anyone with food allergies will understand how nice it was for someone to be equally concerned for my safety. Would definitely stay and eat there again.

Spent a night in Florence SC when returning from Florida and chose Hotel Florence for something different from the run of the mill offerings near the interstate highways. It's downtown which is about 10 minutes from the highway so not overly convenient but we'll worth it upon arrival. Great and welcoming staff, eclectic and warm interior finishes and top quality appointments in the rooms. It's only been open for about 1 year and everything is fresh and comfortable. And the in house restaurant was fantastic and offering fine dining which also provided a welcome change from the normal commuter fare. I'd return without exception.
And the pricing was very reasonable as well...

On our way back from FL yesterday, we called 6 chain hotels in Florence SC for a room and all were either full or only had 'smoking' rooms available. So, I hesitantly called the Hotel Florence and got one of their last available rooms, a providential decision! From the friendly receptionist to the efficient friendly wait staff at Victor's (the adjoining restaurant), this overnight stay was exceptional...a king bed which rivaled our home Tempurpedic for comfort, all new furnishings, and cleanliness which exceeded even my wife's high expectations! The hotel was recently renovated inside and out and has a fascinating history from pre-Civil War to the present, all professionally presented in wall-hung descriptions and scrap book photos. Uniquely different decor is in each room, beautifully refinished original pine floors in the upper floor halls/lobby, 18 ft ceilings...must see to fully appreciate. Even the 8-10 minute drive downtown from I-95 was pleasant. So if you're tired of the mundane chain hotels crowding the interstate exits, treat yourselves to the Hotel Florence! The only regret will be you didn't discover it sooner!!

We were pleasantly surprised to find Hotel Florence after all other hotels were sold out. We wish we could have arrived sooner and enjoyed it longer but mostly just got to sleep. The bed is Serta brand (the best) and everything is new and clean. Kinda pricey for us but totally worth it.

In a town full of nothing but mediocre chains, the Hotel Florence is a breath of fresh air that was long needed. Clean rooms with quality bedding and one of the best restaurants in town make this the place I stay every month for business.
