Augusta's Partridge Inn re-opened its doors after undergoing a $6-million renovation, including an overhaul of all 144 guestrooms, bathrooms, verandas and a new restaurant concept. Atlanta-based Partridge Inn Holdings, the hotels owner, worked to restore the historic hotel to its original grandeur.
The renovation lasted four months, and included gutting, painting, re-carpeting, re-designing and upgrading of all aspects of the hotel. The majority of the renovation is now complete, and guests to the hotel will now be greeted with new guestrooms with new design accents including the use of rich, deep-toned woods, richly-textured fabrics, neutral colors and a modern design. Outdoor improvements included updates to the over one-quarter-mile of verandahs and balconies encircling the hotel, as well as a new exterior color of ivory white.
Northpointe Hospitality Management, the company managing the hotel, also worked with training company Fresh Revenues to train the property’s staff.
The historic hotel was originally opened in 1910.
The Partridge Inn will eventually operate under Hilton Worldwide's new Curio brand. Throughout the renovation design, amenity and service decisions were made to align with the Curio standards.
This May, phase two of the renovation will begin on the public spaces like the fitness center, meeting room, gift shop and coffee shop, and they will be renovated true to Hilton Curio standards. The Partridge Inn's restaurant, The P.I. Bar and Grill, will reopen under a new executive chef and culinary team.
