The perfect location in Charleston. Just one block from the market. This is an all suite hotel and the rooms are spacious. We moved from 568 which was a little small with a dark -no window- living room to 564 which is really great. Staff is very helpful, knowledgeable and can help with dinner reservations.

Dear Kathlean, We thank you for your recent review and recognition of our staff. It is rewarding to hear our "southern hospitality" made “such a positive impression” as Charleston is full of options for lodging and this is a fantastic nod to our dedicated team of professionals. Looking forward to your next visit. Best wishes, Michael Perry General Manager More

Great location and friendly staff but the room, particularly the bathroom, was cramped. If they give you a choice of rooms, take a look before you commit. Our upgraded suite off of the courtyard was much smaller than expected. For the price we expected more.

I have been a Hilton Honors member for many years and almost always stay at a Hilton property when I travel. The location of this property is outstanding...close walk to all the beauty and history that Charleston has to offer. Upon arrival, we were excited to learn that we had been upgraded to a king suite, the largest room available..... More

Great location and very friendly staff. Had a great view of the market and room was spacious. Walking distance to everything! My only complaint is that I couldn't get the room quite cool enough. Great visit!

Hotel has an "old" feel to it; not clean and sparkling; really feels like it has been neglected and not kept up. I would not return to this property. Front desk staff was very courteous and customer oriented. Once on the rooms' floors and inside our two rooms, it felt bad, especially for the price paid for the rooms --... More

We arrived early and were given access to our room immediately. Hotel staff was very friendly and room was perfect for us. Check-out and valet parking completely painless. Would definitely stay here again!

A suite for the 3 of us was just the perfect fit. Rooms were not huge, but the hotel is actually in an old building, so you wouldn't expect extreme spaciousness. Excellent service (always the delicious warm chocolate chip cookies!) and when we had a medical emergency during our stay, the staff couldn't have been more responsive. The location is... More

Enjoyed my stay very much. Everything you want to do is in walking distance. Amazing restaurants just around the corner and the market is right across the street. The hotel is very clean and try to get a room in the courtyard. The staff are extremely helpful and super nice!

This hotel is located in the heart of historic Charleston only a half block from the French Market and loads of restaurants and bars. Cannot beat the location. And it is very quiet. Nice breakfast buffet and very helpful staff.

We opted for a suite and it was very roomy and well appointed EXCEPT the sofa was a pullout bed and very uncomfortable to sit on! Daily service is done late if you are staying for the next day. Seems they do rooms vacated first. If you want your room cleaned early so it's done when you return about lunchtime,... More
