A new hotel will be built in downtown Greenville, officials with the Greenville-based Windsor-Aughtry Company announced Tuesday. 

The new hotel, a 156-room Embassy Suites, will be located along River Street and the Reedy River within the RiverPlace project. The hotel will include a lobby-level venue that will overlook the Reddy River, a fine dining restaurant and bar and a roof-top venue that will offer views of the river, Peace Center Amphitheater and the Blue Ridge Mountains. 

"We believe that offering the only all-suites hotel within or announced in downtown Greenville, combined with this premier location and Embassy's very strong leisure following, will provide the very best lodging addition possible for Greenville's downtown guests' needs," said Paul C. "Bo" Aughtry III, Principal of Windsor-Aughtry. "Additionally, with our Courtyard Marriott and Hampton Inn in such close proximity, but without the larger meeting and banquet capacity of the Embassy, this hotel brings a strong, synergistic addition to our downtown lodging portfolio." 

Guests of the hotel will also be able to enjoy the year-round indoor pool and complimentary, exercise facility, cooked-to-order breakfast and evening complimentary cocktails in the lobby level venue. Companies and other events will be able to enjoy multiple board rooms for functions and a business center.
 
The announcement comes a week after two groups filed plans with the city of Greenville to build hotels in downtown Greenville. 

In papers filed with the city of Greenville, one group states that they plan to build a 120-140 room boutique hotel along River Street, near Broad Street. The other group filed plans to build a 117-room Home 2 Suites with a three story parking garage at the intersection of North Main Street and Elford Street. 

The city's Design Review Board will have to approve the plans for the developments.
