A clean, attractive property with an extremely friendly staff. Nice and quiet at night. We enjoyed eating breakfast outside in the courtyard. The location is very convenient to restaraunts and tours. Our only dislike was our room was on the 5th floor and the view was of a bunch of beat up buildings across the way.

You can't find a better location than this hotel. We stayed in the newer portion of the hotel. Although it was quite a hike to get to the room through the café, which was strange, it was quiet, clean and spacious. The bed was comfy. There were plenty of towels. The bathroom was roomy with a large counter and mirror.... More

Excellent hotel and staff. It has the erfect location for a Charleston visit, just across the street from the market. Valet parking reasonably priced. I plan to stay here on each future visit to Charleston.

First time in charleston SC. Hotel has a great location right in the middle of it all. Very friendly and knowledgable staff. When entering our hotel room we noticed a musty smell and the room felt very small and outdated. We stayed one night in our king suite which felt more like a shoebox with a couch and a bed.... More

I stayed at the Double Tree with friends while we were in town for a wedding. It is a nice hotel and everyone was very friendly. The location is excellent and I would stay there again. However, it could use some updating.

This is a great property with beautiful rooms and a great staff. I will never stay here again because their gym opens at 8 a.m. I was there on business, I can't afford to wait to work out at 8 am. Absolutely ridiculous.

Very Clean and freindly hotel. I was extremely glad that the fitness center is not just a for the cardio lovers, they actually had a full rack dumbells as well. There is nothing worse than having to be on the road for work and end up missing workouts because the hotels think cardio equipment is the safe alternative to real... More

Stay was uneventful which is what my wife and I look for and expect when traveling. There was absolutely no problem to our stay. The warm cookies when arriving and leaving was pure blackmail to entice us to return and it worked. This was our second visit and hopefully many more to come.

We spend a family girls' week at the Doubletree last week. The location was wonderful! Our 90 year young mother was able to walk to restaurants and sites. The staff was very helpful and the complimentary bottles of water tipped the scale. If we can return, I think we will stay at the Doubletree.
