My wife is the planner of trips. So when her birthday approached, I told her I was planning our weekend birthday getaway. I still have no real good idea of how I landed on The Willcox, but it reminded me so much of one of our favorite hotels in Virginia, The Clifton Inn. Our stay was awesome. We brought both...

I have been to this hotel in the past and I've had good experiences. Sadly, my trip to the Willcox last evening was the worst I have ever had at a hotel. First, the restaurant was closed to the public for a special event. We were not notified of that prior to booking the rooms. Then, that evening I was...

My daughter and I were looking at wedding venues looked here. Very pretty on the outside, but the inside was very dark, dimly lit and dark wood everywhere. That's great if that's what you are looking for.

Congratulations on your daughter’s engagement....that is such a special time for a mother and daughter. Our graceful lobby is indeed paneled in a rare curly pine dating back to 1898. Lighting can be adjusted for each occasion, and candlelight glowing from the warm wood can be quite beautiful. I would love to have the opportunity to further discuss the different...

The Willcox is a southern tradition in every way. The staff is friendly, helpful, and gracious. If not for some deferred maintenance and some not luxurious bath accessories, this historic hotel would definitely be 5 star. It is most welcoming....All the rooms are different which makes for an exciting stay. Definitely a boutique hotel that welcomes you in every way.

The Willcox is a grand inn with southern graciousness. Friendly staff, quiet location, spacious rooms with A+ bedding. This is a perfect place to stay for an "escape weekend"---exploring historic and friendly Aiken.

The Wilcox hotel in Aiken, South Carolina, is a legend. And sometimes legends fade. The Wilcox has not! Decades after the last Winter Colony stories, the Wilcox continues to provide absolutely top-drawer service to current guests. Plush rooms, plush robes, and nice touches that add a crumble of praline Southern sweetness, are part of every guest room and stay at...

This is a 5 star experience. The staff is fantastic, and the facility is outstanding. Don't miss the Dinning Room which maybe the best own the south. The service in both the bar and dinning room was outstanding. The check-in and check-out experience was the best ever. The rooms were 5 star quality. I look forward to our next visit.
