My Place begins construction on first South Carolina hotel

My Place Hotel-Greenville, S.C., is expected to open in the spring of 2018.

The Palmetto State is welcoming its My Place location with the development of My Place Hotel-Greenville, S.C. Construction is underway at 11 Ketron Court, where the four-story, 85-unit hotel will be built. Owners Aaron Lawson and Daniel Pretorius announced their next franchise location at the grand opening celebration for their first My Place Hotel, which opened in March near Boise, Idaho. Pretorius said the Greenville location will be similar to their first— specifically, it will be located near dining, retail and entertainment options. 

“We picked this location for its activity, community values and spirit of hospitality, which were all demonstrated by the support Greenville showed us today,” Pretorius said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to call Greenville home to South Carolina’s first My Place Hotel and look forward to introducing the community and its guests to a high quality lodging experience at the best value.” 

My Place Hotel-Greenville, S.C., is independently owned by M.P. Greenville, where Lawson and Pretorius are joined by Gordon Telford, Jr. and Gary Lochbaum. Lawson and Liam Hough’s company, Celtic Services, is heading construction on their second My Place project this year.  Greenville’s newest hotel is projected to open spring of 2018.
