We loved this hotel. The room was spacious and very clean. The bed was comfy. We especially enjoyed the help of Beth at the front desk. She gave us numerous tips to help us, as this was our first time in Charleston. She told us about the hotel shuttle to the waterfront, only $6 round trip each. She recommended 2... More

One of the great things about this hotel is staff and shuttle service to historic area of Charleston. This was great as parking downtown is almost impossible. Hope you're lucky enough to meet...

I selected this hotel because it had a cheaper rate than the downtown hotels, but was just a short ride from downtown. I had a river view room, which also had a view of the pool. The room was clean, but to me smelled faintly of onions (I should add I have a very keen sense of smell). After some... More

We stayed here because we had a call a friend was in the hospital and this looked like one of the closer hotels to stay at (by the way, it's not across the street as it looks like on google maps). It was quite pricey for a courtyard, waterfront or not. We checked in and asked for an upgrade being... More
