The Chiquola Hotel. I had passed it many times, before its rennovation began, and never recognized it as a hotel or even a unified building. The area above just looked like a series of storefronts to me. The transformation is amazing. It is an incredible addition to Anderson’s downtown. Kudos to the developers. I sincerely hope you make your investment back many times over. The rennovation is close to completion, with luxury condos, a Chiquola Club, and a fine restaurant within. Most of the condos appear sold, and the club is said to be already open.

One interesting point. I was tickled to see this old postcard of the Chiquola. In 1889 when the hotel opened, a street ran in front of that beautiful front entryway and balcony!
