LS3P Wins Columbia Chamber’s Golden Nail Award

Columbia, SC - The Cambria Hotel, located in the heart of Columbia’s Vista district, has been awarded the Golden Nail Award by the Columbia Chamber as part of their 2023 Columbia Impact Awards. The Golden Nail is awarded to businesses for exemplary contributions to the physical character of the greater Midlands region by means of cosmetic, commercial or re-purposing of a blighted space.
