The location is really great. Unfortunately, the staff behaves like they are doing you a great favor by allowing you to pay way too much money to stay at that location. The room was clean, except for the floors; really regretted the one time I took off my shoes. The water pressure in the shower was lame and the mattress... More

I felt I paid for location vs service and room quality. If location is your primary criteria then this is great place. If service and quiet room are important I would be a little more selective. We went for a 3 night stay to celebrate our 25th anniversary, but left after day 2 when we realized the room and service... More

This place grew on me! It is in the center of everything and hidden from sight. Don't look for views but the rooms are very comfortable . Modern conveniences in the very small baths and a huge canopy bed. Not much staff but the young men who helped with bags and such were polite and helpful. Charming place!

Great hotel in a perfect location on King Street. Gathered with nine classmates from HS. We had the best service here, and the staff was so accommodating. Very comfortable! A block or two from the market place, stores, and restaurants. The courtyard was perfect for breakfast and our gatherings morning and night. Continental breakfast included with homemade pastries!

We had a wonderful stay here. We had requested a courtyard room and were accommodated. Everything was very clean and comfortable. The room was charming and perfectly decorated with Southern charm. Everyone we encountered was helpful and polite. We enjoyed breakfast served to our room each morning and found the pastries more than adequate for our appetites. The wine and... More

Easy walk to anything in downtown Charleston. The room was simple, but very clean and had a comfortable four poster canopy king bed. The interior courtyard is a relaxing place to sit and enjoy a drink and conversation. Concierge service is helpful and knowledgable. Lovely historic hotel. We would stay again. The four poster bed was a bit squeaky with... More

The rooms are quite nicely done and very clean. Good breakfast and afternoon wine. Located in the heart of the historic district and you can walk to a lot of the sites. Beautiful neighborhoods and architecture right nearby.
