Hotel Hartness History

Tom Hartness purchased the Pepsi-Cola Bottling rights in Greenville, SC in 1940, and over the next 70 years, the Hartness company evolved as a total packaging solutions provider with over 100 patents. Tom’s son, Pat, grew up in the business and eventually took over, while his son, Sean, became a senior executive. After a decades-long run of successful business ventures, the family sold Hartness International in 2009.

Pat acquired the land where the Hartness community and Hotel Hartness are located. It’s a total of 449 acres and has rolling pastures, lakes, creeks, and lush forests.

Not only did the family business once take place on the land, but Pat and his wife, Mary Lou, lived on an estate on it as well. Their beloved homestead welcomed friends and family through weddings, holiday celebrations, charitable events, and family gatherings. The former Hartness home has been reimagined into Hotel Hartness, and as you walk through the hotel, you’re sure to get a sense of family history and pride.

The hotel also boasts of over 16,000 square feet of meeting and event space. There are indoor venue options and outdoor options, all of which can be customized for weddings, social gatherings, and corporate events. The White Oak Ballroom can host up to 300 guests.

While we could not tour Spa H (they were putting final touches on the flooring), we can at least tell you that there will be a comprehensive menu of unique and creative treatments. The spa will be open to both hotel guests and the public. There are even 4 guests suites located in the spa. It sounds perfect for a couple’s getaway! The opening date for Spa H is TBD.
