I had a wonderful stay at your hotel. The staff at Doubletree Charleston was better than the staff and service I received at Ritz Carlton last month. The housekeepers were the best and the cleanest I have seen in a long time. I loved my spotless room and bath room. The were the sweetest girls ever! Well done Hilton!

Positive: Location location location. You can walk to City Market, the harbor, and all the nice old houses. Neutral: Rooms are showing age and not super modern, but they are sufficiently appointed and good. Negative: None.

We stayed here for a few days to explore the great food culture of Charleston. The location is perfect for exploring the city. The decor is a bit dated. They are in the process of redecorating floor by floor, so you should try to get a room that is freshly decorated. The staff is very helpful and polite, and the... More

I have a bad back and found the bed to be nicer than the one I have at home. I did not require any service to my room during my 3 night stay and the staff was great and respected my privacy. Very comfortable place to kick back after a long day.

We booked the DT over Valentines Day / Presidents Day weekend, solely for the ideal location where we could walk to all the places we wanted to visit. However, the property is pretty tired and in need of an upgrade. Perhaps because they were at full capacity, but the staff didn't seem empowered to do much of anything (including offering... More

A colleague booked this for a business trip for me. The hotel was very unique and was being updated. The location was great as the market was very close and many restaurants were very close. I'd live to visit here with my wife for a weekend.

I almost hate to review this property, because I'd like it to be my own little secret. This was our first trip to Charleston and the staff at the DoubleTree made it so memorable that it will definitely not be our last. Lorenzo and Michael made sure we found great places to eat and provided us with first hand information... More

We stayed at the DoubleTree over the weekend of 20 to 22 Feb 2015. The biggest attraction was the location of the hotel and there's no doubt it is central to everything. Very easy to park the car and walk everywhere. We were very impressed with Zach who met us as we arrived. Valet parking is $25 per night and... More
