On our recent visit to Hartsville, South Carolina, we got to stay at a boutique hotel called The Mantissa.

A Tour Of The Beautiful Hotel Florence #sponsored #VisitFlo

I have a confession to make. I really love boutique hotels. I also really love old buildings with rich histories that are repurposed as hotels. Places like the Mantissa in Hartsville, SC and the Clarion Inn Willow River in Sevierville, TN, are really cool to me. When we recently visited Florence, South Carolina, we got […]
