My first time to Charleston was this July and this was a perfect start and end to our two days in this beautiful city. Out of the historic area but just a quick shuttle ride away. We stayed on the top floor and our room was nice, beds were comfortable and spent evenings with a glass of wine on the... More

We chose this because we thought it would be nice to have the view of the inlet. But I wish we had booked somewhere central in the historic district. That said, the taxi ride between downtown and the hotel made our visit ok. The hotel reception rooms are spacious and nicely furnished. The general ambience is friendly and staff pleasant.... More

I booked because I needed a very close hotel to the hospital. I was hoping to walk, FAT CHANCE! This city is nuts! The hospital is VERY close yet, to walk there will take you 45 mins! It is across a major highway that you cannot walk across. You have to walk down two blocks then over one and back... More

Our family stayed at the Courtyard on our way to Charlotte NC. The evening staff was nice and helpful. The room was small for our family. The breakfast crew was especially nice and accommodating. The breakfast menu was limited and not particularly kid friendly. The morning desk clerk, in complete contrast of the other staff, was rude and totally unfriendly.... More

I spent three days at Charleston and chose this hotel for its close-to-downtown location. The hotel itself is not in the city downtown area but since my stay includes free parking, I easily drove to downtown in 5 minutes and parked my car there in the visitor center lot for most of my sight-seeing. Driving to Mt Pleasant was also... More

We stayed one night only during a "flash" visit to Charleston. Our selection was based on the proximity toThe Citadel. Our room was a King room with a pullout couch. We found the room on the small side, specially when you unfold the pull out. On the other hand, the location was great (beautiful view of the Ashley River and... More

We stayed at this hotel as a group of 12 for a bachelorette party. The rooms were more than large enough to accommodate large groups of people. The staff was nice and efficient, and the hotel was beautiful. There was a huge porch with rocking chairs, and a large pool overlooking the water. The only downside would be the location.... More

I was on a business trip to Charleston and normally stay near the Airport. This time I wanted to see the water! Very nice hotel. Great covered outdoor patio area, great for being outside if it's raining. Rooms were a little small but clean and comfortable. Stayed a couple of extra days to see Charleston. Will stay here again!
