    Quirky Southern charm is the name of the game at the GunRunner in Florence.

Sleek rooms are dedicated to celebrities in the Shoals area, including designer Billy Reid, Sun Records founder Sam Phillips and architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The hands-off GunRunner hospitality, with a lack of on-site staff and formal check-in, grants guests a sense of freedom.
