Grand Bohemian Lodge Greenville Property Information
An Autograph Collection Hotel, we redeemed our Marriott Rewards points to overnight at this gorgeous Downtown Greenville property. We most loved the proximity to restaurants and bars, spacious corner room, and scenic views of Falls Park on the Reedy. We would easily stay here again when splurging for a special occasion or spending a fun weekend in Greenville.
Please double-check all information on their website. This is our unaffiliated review based on our personal experience.
Uncorked Asheville Reader Tip: We also have a Grand Bohemian in our Asheville home, located in Historic Biltmore Village across from the entrance to Biltmore Estate. Similarly designed, their cozy Asheville property boasts the delicious Red Stag Grill.

The Grand Bohemian Lodge in Greenville has two on-site bars, both serving smaller bites, as well as a delicious modern lodge-style restaurant with breakfast, brunch, and dinner.
Between The Trees
The Grand Bohemian’s main restaurant, located just passed the lobby and art gallery, Between The Trees offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner. With seasonal and locally sourced ingredients, we enjoyed breakfast, ordering French Press coffee, avocado toast with poached eggs (modified to be lactose-free), and a gluten-free egg platter with sausage and fruit.
Between The Trees’ fine dining dinner menu showcases salads, steaks, elk, bison, seafood, and pork belly. For brunch, select from sandwiches, egg dishes, French Toast, and shrimp and grits.
Spirit & Bower
We’ve enjoyed Spirit & Bower as non-hotel guests, grabbing drinks at the bar along with the Grand Bohemian’s seasonal Christmas Market. Inside, find a warm and inviting – but sometimes crowded – space, or sit outside along the falls. Along with craft cocktails and a curated wine, bourbon, and whiskey list, select from flatbreads, sliders, and charcuterie.
Every time we visit Downtown Greenville, we end up in the Grand Bohemian’s lobby with its blazing fireplace and perfectly located bar with an emphasis on the bubbles.
Grab a drink and head outside to view Falls Park. Or, sit in one of their gorgeous library and gaming rooms. The Lobby Bar also features a small menu with snacks like nuts, dip, charcuterie, and shrimp cocktail.
Pros and Cons Of The Hotel
If you travel similar to our preferences, we occasionally splurge on hotels for special occasions or if we are dying to stay at a property. However, we aim for slightly more budget-friendly accommodations, which is why it’s important to know if the splurge is worth it.
The pros of staying at the Grand Bohemian Lodge Greenville:
- Centrally located Downtown property near restaurants, shops, and The Peace Center (theater)
- Unique and scenic location overlooking Falls Park on the Reedy
- Large property that is both family and pet-friendly
- Beautifully themed decor in rooms and public spaces
- Spacious and clean rooms with modern amenities
- Worthy on-site restaurants and bars
- Professional, top-notch service and staff
- Quick and easy valet without the stress
A few subjective cons:
- The loud AC/heating system clicked on and off all night (we didn’t want to shut it off or keep the fan on, though)
- The price ($$$$)
- Our shower floor was extremely slippery; had we known, we would have called for a rubber mat
- Because of their location, they get a lot of outside traffic to common spaces like the bars and lobby restrooms; it gets very congested with non-hotel guests
Even with the very few drawbacks, we would recommend staying at the Grand Bohemian in Greenville if you have Marriott points/rewards or are celebrating a special occasion. It’s a memorable, top-notch experience.
We would not necessarily stay here in peak tourism season (with elevated rates) just to see a concert or theater production, though, as it would quickly add up. Book your overnight here.
