My Perfect Day

What to do in a place like this if you only have 24 hours?

I would recommend starting the day by heading downstairs to enjoy breakfast at the P.I. Bar & Grill, which serves award-winning southern cuisine. The food is delicious and blends southern comfort with modern sophistication.

After breakfast, I would encourage visitors (or locals) to head into historic Augusta and walk the Riverwalk. After walking the trail and seeing the different parts of Augusta, I would recommend visiting the Imperial Theater. This theater is an Augusta landmark that's been in operation since 1918. Near the theater, there is a very large Civil War monument worth checking out.

A few blocks down the street is the Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art, which embodies the architecture history in Augusta. After visiting these spots, I would head back towards Augusta’s main road, Broad Street, to get dinner at Farmhaus Burger. This restaurant serves burgers made with locally grown beef and ingredients. After dinner, I’d head back to the Partridge Inn for the evening to relax on their expansive porch and enjoy the southern air with a glass of wine from the P.I. Bar & Grill.

Where to stay

The Partridge Inn Augusta, Curio Collection by Hilton

The Partridge Inn has undergone an extensive yet careful restoration; allowing guests to not only experience the original 1836 house, which remains encompassed within the building, but to also enjoy the comforts and conveniences of a contemporary luxury hotel. Perched on a hilltop in a peaceful residential area, you will feel a million miles away from the stresses and strains of daily life – even though you are mere moments from the shopping, dining and attractions of downtown.

SEE HOTEL DETAILS

The Partridge Inn Augusta was beautiful and it really personified the city for me. The hotel is newly renovated with a modern feel, but it held onto the southern feeling and history of such a historic building that dates back more than 100 years.

My experience was great! One thing that stood out from the start was the beautiful exterior design of the hotel. Perched on a scenic hilltop, I felt like I was in an old southern movie. Every team member I encountered was friendly and helpful with anything I needed during my stay. I also loved the large size of the rooms and how incredibly comfortable the beds were.
