Another great stay at this Doubletree! This time we had a beautiful room in the back building -- a little larger and more elegant. Too bad we couldn't stay longer! (Love those warm cookies.......) So nice to feel welcomed by the women who staff the breakfast service. So warm and friendly. Really adds to the whole experience!

This hotel and staff make you feel a part of the culture of Charleston. There is no commercial feel that is so common these days. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The local restaurants within easy walking distance were all outstanding. This is the only place we will stay when we revisit the city.

Great location, super staff and very nice hotel. Rooms are a little quirky if you get the two level but cool. I was there when a "cold snap" ( I do not really consider 45 degrees cold) came through and the rooms were way too warm for me and windows would not open. Easy walking to great restaurants, the market... More

Had a nice stay here. Great central location close to shopping and restaurants. The only complaint I would have is that the tub drained very slow and I stood in water every morning for the shower. Other than that it was great. Large rooms that made it not feel like a hotel. Would stay here again

This hotel is a great location and the rooms are nice. I would gladly stay here again! One of the best features is the location. You are right by lots of nice bars and places to eat so you don't have far to go at the end of the night. The hotel was very nice!

Stayed for a business conference and was extremely impressed with the quality of the hotel, food provided, cleanliness of rooms, helpful staff, and great location. Walking distance to downtown Charleston but plenty of cute restaurants and shops around the corner. Very comfortable beds too!

Very nice hotel. Great location - right next to the City Market. There are tons of great restaurants nearby, as well as good shopping. The rooms were small-ish but I had a separate sitting room, which was nice. The bathrooms could use some updating. They are quite small, which can't be easily remedied, but they could update the lighting and... More

The hotel location within the historic district is great, right by the City Market. Room was clean and very quiet, even though it was right behind the ice and vending machines. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Bed was very comfortable and shower was good. Would definitely stay here again on a return visit to Charleston.

Stayed there for a business conference and would definitely recommend for business or pleasure. Well located, friendly staff, good breakfast and clean rooms. There are 2 sections, which is a little odd. I stayed in the newer section, which is further from the main desk. Others I heard checking in during my stay requested the main hotel. I found the...
