Northbound motorists can detour to South Washington Street or to Reade Street.

Businesses located on this block will remain open and accessible to customers during this time.

The new eight-floor, 90-room hotel will be the first in the Uptown Greenville area. It will be within walking distance of stores, the trolley, restaurants, and much more.

The hotel will have a restaurant, meeting space, and a rooftop bar. Local organizers said they are excited about the hotel and what it could bring to the local economy.

“We are excited to be able to have another opportunity and option to bring people to stay in our city center,” said Andrew Schmidt, president, and CEO of Visit Greenville NC. “It’s really a positive step for the growth of our city.”

Most of the city’s hotels are just outside the Uptown Greenville area. Anyone visiting has to drive to the Uptown area.
