The hotel is beautiful, and the rooms are amazing. Although they were quite busy the weekend we were there, the staff is very friendly, accommodating, and helpful. If we return to the area, we hope to stay here again!

It's funny--- ever since my husband was a first year medical student in Augusta, GA we dreamed of a relaxing stay at the Willcox. Fast forward 8 years and it finally happened during a visit to Georgia. It's possible that our expectations for the hotel were too grand because we both left our stay with the feeling of "meh".

If you like historic, interesting hotels with large comfortable rooms and expert staff this is the place for you. The dining room was wonderful and a cocktail in the great lobby was delightful. Enjoyed our stay and will definitely return. While there attended historic re-enactment of the Civil War Battle of Aiken. Definitely worthwhile.

I frequently have Sunday brunch with friends at the Willcox. Today's visit was outstanding. It was quite crowded and we had no reservations, but the wait was pleasant since one can have a drink served in the comfortable sitting area. There was live piano music. They must have a new chef as the menu featured some new and imaginative items...

Thank you for being a frequent guest at our Sunday brunch! I couldn’t agree with you more that the Spanish Tortilla is one of my favorites and not to mention the wonderful beet salad. Our Executive Chef Regan Browell changes our menus seasonally, so be on the lookout for more wonderful changes this spring! Bon Appetite Tina McCarthy General Manger
