Hotel Florence recently opened its expanded sixteen new guest rooms including two suites and the Owner’s two bedroom suite. It is linked to the original Hotel via first floor access. It is located in the historic Barringer Hardware building built in 1904. The spacious new rooms have accent walls, exposed brick, and hardwood floors—original to the building. Each room has a different motif and feel. As with the original rooms, color was important to convey warmth and delight. This expansion adds to the landmark Hotel which spurred a new era of reconstruction for downtown Florence.
