My husband and stayed at the DoubleTree during an overnight trip to Charleston. We booked a large suite and was given a Townhouse suite. This has an upstairs bedroom with bathroom. It would have been great had they had a toilet downstairs. Very nice, but after having broken my ankle a year ago it was a pain for me to... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights in a Larger Two Room Double Bed Suite. Easy check in (the cookies were delicious!) and Bellman Mark was very helpful getting us to our room, which was lovely, with very comfortable beds and plenty of room for our group. The room décor was traditional, which was fitting for the area we... More

We only stayed one night but we were well pleased with both the service and accomdations. Upon arrival, our valet was most attentative to our every need.

Over all the hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. It was located in the heart of downtown and was within walking distant from various attractions, shopping and restaurants. However there were some disappointing features. I wasn't very pleased with the valet parking. I felt like every time we needed our car we had to pay more for a... More

We stayed one night at the Doubletree in Charleston in July on our way down to Hilton Head. We stayed here last year as well, and decided to return primarily due to the excellent location of the hotel. We were given a room this year in the "new section" of the hotel that was across the courtyard in what appeared... More
