Powell Furniture Store | Hotel Trundle
There is a slice of heaven tucked into three treasured landmarks in the heart of South Carolina’s state capital. Hotel Trundle, the first independent boutique hotel in downtown Columbia, unites three historic buildings, each carefully restored to capture the character and beauty of days gone by while offering a fresh, mid-century, and eclectic feel.
The original properties, adjoined at the rear, include the Powell Furniture Building, the Western Auto Building, and the Rose Talbert Paint Store. Using federal and state historic tax credits and other incentives, GBX Group helped to transform three nearly century-old structures into a chic and luxurious 41-room retreat located in the heart of Columbia’s Main Street Historic District. Creatively blending old and new, Hotel Trundle features restored brick walls, pressed tin ceilings, and moldings along with a 1920’s Art Deco style and contemporary interiors. No two guest rooms are alike — each is decorated in its own unique style.
