Room was very nice. Reception was efficient. We arrived late at night while they were renovating. Parking and Valet Parking were not clearly marked but once we figured it out, it was simple and easy. If you want to stay in the historic district, this is perfect.

There's really no better location if you're looking for a chain hotel (have to earn those points). Literally right next to the Market, and across from the lot where all of the carriage tours start, you can't be closer to the action. Staff was very accommodating. We required a room with a mini-fridge and to meet this need we were... More

This was a girl's trip to Charleston and all of the girls enjoyed the location of the DoubleTree Hotel! We could walk everywhere and enjoy our sightseeing knowing we were so close to the Market downtown. The valet service was exceptional and would definitely recommend using this service to park your car.

The place for our conference, service was really good. Additionally, bringing my family to enjoy Charleston, the hotel room was exceptionally nice. Finally, the location was perfect as it is adjacent to the Market, only a few blocks from name brand shopping, and within walking distance of the Battery.

I stayed at this hotel for three days for a business conference. The grounds were nice, the staff was courteous and helpful - but the food, God, the food - was AWFUL.

Nice hotel - undergoing lobby renovations. Breakfast buffet was comparable in cost to local eateries and well presented. There were comfortable rooms, though there is some noise from adjoining rooms at times. The Staff was very pleasant.

We stayed here for a girlfriends get-away in the beginning of Dec 2014. A suite for $170/night was a great price. Check in was quick and smooth.

The location of this hotel is ideal for Charleston. Close to restaurants and centrally located to most attractions you might want to see. However, the room I stayed in was worn out, and hadn't been updated probably since the 1980s. It was "livable", but for the price the hotel charges, they could invest a little more in making the experience... More
