For our first visit to the South we chose the Andrew Pinckney in Charleston. It was a great start to our vacation. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming. We were given a junior suite in the building opposite the reception. Although it was on the 4th floor next to the elevator and the breakfast area it was... More

My husband and I stayed here during our first trip to Charleston for a wedding. The service was excellent and the location was decently close to everything. The room, however, was extremely disappointing. We were given a room right off a central seating area and the room had a window to the hallway of the hotel! There was a curtain... More

Very nice and accommodating staff....check-in by Jeff, excellent breakfast with rooftop view included biscuits and sausage gravy which caters to my Southern roots.....cookies in lobby were out of this world....furnishings in room were of true, southern charm......very convenient, 1 block from the straw market and everything you need within walking distance.....very peaceful atmosphere....would definitely stay again.....

My husband and I loved this hotel! Check-In was great, super cute and friendly customer service. The room was spectacular, comfy bed and clean bathroom. The location is amazing, just steps from Market Street with all the shops and restaurants, Meeting St is also just a few steps in the other direction. And the little breakfast cafe on the top...

Stayed for 2 nights with our 13 month old daughter. Gorgeous room in the Church Street building. Most comfortable beds of our entire trip to South Carolina. Upon arrival we were directed to the free cheese & wine serving on the rooftop patio. This was a wonderful beginning to our stay; met fellow guests and experienced the famous Charleston hospitality.... More

My husband and I recently stayed in the Andrew Pinkney while in Charleston for a wedding.

Came up to Charleston to watch daughter play in some soccer games against a couple of the local colleges in the area so it was a very central place to be located. It's also a breath of fresh air to stay at an independent, non chain hotel that's very good. Very rare find these days. Charleston is such a beautiful... More

My wife and I stayed at the Andrew Pinckney Inn for three nights during August 2014. The rooms are small, but in very good condition.
