This hotel is in a prime location in Charleston. Very convenient for walking the historic district. The prices are very high for the amenities that you get. They have no free internet service, offer no complimentary breakfast, and charge $22 per day for parking. Be sure to take lots of money.

There were 3 of us staying in a 2-room suite which was perfect - 2 double beds in one room and a pull-out sofa bed in the other. The sink was located outside the bathroom which was great!

I stayed here recently while traveling on business. You really are paying for the location with this hotel. It is a nice hotel, but some aspects could use some rennovating. For example, my bathtub was looking quite worn. The bed, however, was VERY comfortable! The staff were incredibly friendly. And, I never had more than a two minute wait with... More

This hotel is very well located in Downtown Charleston within walking distance to everything that you'd want in town. The rooms were nice, but left something to be desired. Clean, but the rooms seemed a bit dated from a design standpoint. Certainly not old, but missing something that fresh feel. Also the lobby missed the mark. It was average and... More

This was my first visit to Charleston, and it was amazing! This hotel is in a great location and the rooms are wonderful. Their staff is great. They even arranged my airport pickup with Omega Transportation! I love the city of Charleston.

The location can't be beat. You can walk to anything. I would say the hotel itself is average. The staff is really nice and helpful. I was upgraded and the room was nice. I heard the other rooms were small. The room set up is nice if you have kids since each room is a suite. The room I was... More

I am a Hilton Honors Gold member and have stayed at Doubletree properties all over the country. This property is below average when compared to other Doubletree Hotels. For the money, you could get more at other hotels located within a block or two of this property. For example, this hotel has no real bar/lounge. They set up nightly in... More

Our convenient location to restaurants and the market is a great reason to stay with us! Due to our historic location we do not have room for a pool, but we do have a very nice courtyard for guests to enjoy. Please consider us next time you stay in Charleston. More

A clean, well decorated suite in a fabulous location was the perfect place to stay in Charleston. Our two story suite provided a great opportunity for a couple to be able to have different schedules without disturbing one another. It was great. I only wish there had been a powder room on the living room level. However, you would think... More

Just had one overnight at the Doubletree. The staff were very helpful with directions and cleaned the room well. The bed, although a little hard, had very comfortable sheets. Bathroom had plenty of room and soft towels. The AC was pretty noisy.... it sounded like a birds nest that was behind the wall (Room 207). I was there for a... More

We had a suite. It was clean and roomey. The front desk was helpful with directions and suggestions. There are many restaurants within walking distance. The gym was simple but adequate. We enjoyed our stay.
