AUGUSTA, Ga. and MCLEAN, Va. - A historic property known for its unparalleled Southern hospitality near the heart of downtown Augusta, The Partridge Inn Augusta joined Curio - A Collection by Hilton today. As Hilton Worldwide's (NYSE: HLT) rapidly-expanding global collection of distinctive hotels, Curio caters to passionate travelers seeking local discovery and authentic experiences. Dating back more than 100 years, The Partridge Inn Augusta, Curio Collection by Hilton is located in the heart of Augusta's Summerville district, less than two miles from the Augusta Canal and historic canal boat tours. 

"One of the many attributes I love about this hotel is its wonderful location on a scenic hilltop in a peaceful residential area, while still being minutes from Augusta's beautiful historic district," said Dianna Vaughan, global head, Curio - A Collection by Hilton. "Beloved by heads of state, business executives and celebrities for more than a century, we're honored to welcome such a beautiful hotel to the Curio collection - one that celebrates its past and invites guests to experience the original 1836 house, which remains part of the foundation of the building today."

Known as "The Grand Hotel of the Classic South," The Partridge Inn - dating back to the early 1800s - is rich with history and was once a two-story residence for a family from Connecticut. Around 1900, Morris W. Partridge - a seasonal hotel employee in Augusta - bought the property and began offering guest accommodations and expanding the building several times until 1929. After the Great Depression, the inn became a year-round commercial hotel and subsequently an apartment house. The building fell into disrepair after World War II, barely escaping demolition in the 1980s before local residents saved the landmark, thus preserving one of the rich historic legacies of Augusta's "Hill" area.

Today, guests can relax in one of 143 recently-renovated spacious guest rooms spanned across five floors and offering views of the area's gardens, the pool or the Augusta skyline. Additionally, the hotel features a sixth floor rooftop Penthouse that can also be used to host events for up to 100 guests. Highlights of the penthouse include a kitchen, dining room, living room, three bedrooms and a spacious deck with sweeping views of Augusta.  Other hotel highlights include a 24-hour business center and a 24-hour fitness center with state-of-the-art Precor equipment. 

The hotel - managed by NorthPointe Hospitality Management, LLC and owned by Partridge Inn Holdings, LLC - also features modern design with all of the comforts and conveniences of a contemporary luxury hotel. This includes a casual yet sophisticated "club resort" style, which utilizes warm wood finishes with rich, deep, neutral colors elegantly-accented with pops of color.  The result is a custom-tailored style that combines the best of old world glamour and charm with casual sophistication - all with a modern twist.

"Our many wonderful features - including our location at the doorstep of all that Augusta has to offer - comes with the reassurance of the iconic Hilton name and sets us a step above other offerings in the market," said Greg Winey, president of NorthPointe Hospitality Management, LLC. "During their stay at The Partridge Inn Augusta, our guests will not only experience the Southern hospitality for which we're known, but will also be intrigued to make new discoveries in our historic city that are truly unforgettable."

The Partridge Inn Augusta boasts a long legacy of culinary excellence. The newly-refurbished P.I. Bar and Grill - redesigned with vibrant colors and chic style - showcases innovative, contemporary local cuisine, with dishes ranging from creative small plates to decadent entrees and desserts. On Sundays, guests can enjoy the famous "Best of Augusta" Sunday brunch, a local favorite featuring prime rib, shrimp and grits and a variety of desserts and other local favorites.
