GREENVILLE, S.C. and MCLEAN, Va. - Embassy Suites by Hilton, a global brand of upscale, all-suite hotels from Hilton (NYSE: HLT), announced today the opening of a newly-built hotel in the heart of downtown Greenville's bustling business and entertainment district.

Embassy Suites Greenville Downtown Riverplace  -- the brand's second property in South Carolina's Upstate - rises eight stories above the cascading Reedy River, just steps across from iconic Liberty Bridge, shops, restaurants, galleries and businesses along historic tree-lined Main Street. The 156-suite hotel offers all the amenities associated with the Embassy Suites name, as well as stunning views of downtown, Falls Park and the distant Blue Ridge Mountains.

The hotel is owned by RiverStreet Lodging, LLC and developed by Windsor Aughtry Hotel Group.

"This dazzling property in downtown Greenville is a spectacular addition to our award-winning brand of upscale all-suite hotels," said Alan Roberts, global head, Embassy Suites by Hilton. "Its convenient location near numerous attractions makes it an ideal option for leisure and business travelers."

Managed by Hospitality America, Embassy Suites Greenville Downtown Riverplace offers guests the brand's signature amenities, including a free made-to-order breakfast and two-hour complimentary Evening Reception* with snacks and beverages, free WiFi and comfortable two-room suites and guest rooms with a living area and bedroom.

Other features are distinctive to the property, including an innovative, contemporary design and spacious lobby - resplendent in regional artwork - that is perfect for meeting and gathering. The charming river is the focal point for scenic, panoramic views throughout the hotel, including those from Up on the Roof. The 8th floor, rooftop restaurant and lounge features seasonally-inspired and locally-sourced light fare, expertly prepared creative cocktails, unique wine selections and regionally-brewed craft beers.

Fine dining is evident at the hotel's Ruth's Chris Steak House, where stunning vistas of the river nicely complement USDA Prime steaks, an award-winning wine list and legendary hospitality. Guests preferring to dine in-suite may select room service or pick up snacks and sundries in the hotel's 24-hour convenience store.

Breathtaking views are also evident from each spacious suite, which provides a private bedroom and separate living area. Features include a television in each room of the suite, sofa bed, well-lit work table with ergonomic armchair, refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker and wet bar offering gourmet coffee and teas from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®.

Up to 300 people can take part in wedding receptions, business conferences and other events in the 5,500 square feet of flexible meeting spaces available at Embassy Suites by Hilton Greenville Downtown Riverplace. The ballroom provides state-of-the-art audio visual technology and is adjacent to a patio overlooking Swamp Rabbit Trail and Reedy River. It and three smaller galleries provide natural light through floor-to-ceiling glass windows.

For smaller meetings, Embassy Suites by Hilton Greenville Downtown Riverplace offers the Meetings SimplifiedTM by Embassy Suites by Hilton package, which includes the meeting room, basic meeting Wi-Fi, meeting room supplies including a flipchart, markers, extension and power cord, and all-day non-alcoholic beverage service. Also available for business travelers is a 24-hour business center.

Guests seeking exercise have a wealth of complementary options, including a salt water pool with floor-to-ceiling glass windows -- the only indoor, year-round pool in downtown Greenville; and a fitness center with state-of-the-art cardio and balance equipment along with a range of weight-training options. Plus, just outside is the Swamp Rabbit Trail and its over 30 miles of paved pathways perfect for walking, biking or running.
