Sitting on the hem of Swamp Rabbit Trail in vibrant downtown Greenville, the Embassy Suites Greenville Downtown Riverplace is a stone’s throw to both the Peace Center and Falls Park on the Reedy. The all-suites hotel provide a king studio, a king suite, and a two queen suite. Upgrade to a balcony with incredible views, or a premium room (with faster Wi-Fi, a Keurig coffee system and soft drinks and snacks). Rooms come with a microwave, a mini-fridge, and flat-screens.
The property provides a cooked-to-order breakfast, a manager’s reception in the evening with free adult/kid drinks and snacks, an indoor pool (salt water), a fitness room and coin-laundry. The onsite restaurant – Up on the Roof – delivers dazzling Greenville views. The beautiful Ruth’s Chris Steak House sits in the lobby.

Rooms were spacious and clean (#1 requirement). Service was excellent. Rooftop lounge was fantastic - great views and service. Location is excellent, right on the riverwalk and near attractions. Parking is in a City garage, and signs for where to park and elevator protocol are not clear. Several of us rode on and off various elevators for a while until we figured it out.
Have stayed in Embassy Suites hotels around the U.S. but none as nice as this one. Perhaps because it's relatively new, the hotel is immaculate, the décor contemporary, and the rooms exceptionally nice. The two room suite made for a very comfortable stay, with the living room walled off from the bedroom. The king size bed was quite comfortable, and the bathroom was spacious with a large walk-in shower. My wife is very particular when it comes to showers and water pressure in the shower, and she gave this one two "thumbs up." Breakfast comes with the room, and this is a step above most "free" breakfasts, with omelets and other dishes made to order. We were not able to take advantage of the courtesy "happy hour," but free wine and beer and munchies are always appreciated. Hotel looked more like a high end Hilton than an Embassy Suites. I highly recommend it.
