Another Downtown Columbia Hotel

Recommended Posts

Well, the trend continues... A developer is turning the Palmetto Building into a hotel. It's great to see all this development going on, but did we really need another new hotel in downtown Columbia? Well, I'm all for this one since it'll save the Sherlock Holmes Pub... but still...

From WISTV:

Historic downtown Columbia building to be refurbished as a hotel

(Columbia) Aug. 6, 2004 - Main Street has landed what city leaders call a home run deal. WIS has learned that businessman Rick Patel has purchased the Palmetto Building and will convert it into a 112 room hotel.

The Palmetto Building, at the corner of Main and Gervais Streets, is one of Columbia's oldest skyscrapers and would get a $10 to $12 million face lift. It currently houses offices and in its basement, the Sherlock Holmes Pub. The pub recently had to shut down after the ceiling started to cave in. Patel says the renovations will save the pub.

That is excellent news! Too bad about another hotel. But thats cool, just so long as they are rennovating stuff. The Palmetto Building is by far my favorite architecture in Columbia. It blows the "Historic Horseshoe" out of the water.

Hey! A hotel is by far better than an abandoned building. At least they are restoring it. Take a look at Detroit next time you feel like complaining. You will see that you are blessed!
