The Southern Living Hotel Collection, a small, curated group of independent, four-and five-star level hotels, resorts and inns that span 18 Southern states and offer authentic Southern hospitality welcomed its newest member: The Willcox.

Since its launch this past July, the Collection has grown from its 15 premier hotels, resorts and inns to 19 carefully selected properties chosen by the editors at Southern Living. Members of the Southern Living Hotel Collection are vetted according to the same criteria Southern Living editors use to determine editorial coverage. Each hotel in the collection provides a memorable experience through impeccable service, outstanding cuisine, high-quality facilities and the finest amenities. The Willcox, a white-pillared Colonial Revival landmark on the National Historic Register, has been a permanent fixture in Aiken since 1898.
