My brother got married down at Water Front Park with dinner very close as well. So, this hotel was a perfect location. Keep in mind, this is a holiday inn. The higher-than-normal holiday inn rate is due to location. You are walking distance to king street - loads on shopping and eating options.

This place was very nice! the Interior was very stylish!! Great staff! and nice rooms! Take note! There is only Valet Parking at this hotel. The Breakfast buffet was good! The restaurant apparently has some good food but we didnt try it. It seemed to be located at the entrance of the Historic downtown.

On a recent 2 night stay at this property, my wife and I were amazed with the staff at the front desk. Not only did they give us suggestions on places to visit but how to get there as well. And always with a smile! During a happy hour, the barmaid was equally enjoyable. Upon check out I inadvertantly left... More

I stayed two nights at this hotel. Very pleased with the amenities in the room. Beds were comfortable, especially with the placement of 4 pillows that varied in terms of soft and firm. Additionally, I had breakfast one morning. The service was outstanding and the food was very good. I had a drink, also, one evening. The bar service and... More

This is a nicely updated HI but frankly, I felt misled by both the title of the hotel and other reviewers who said it's a convenient walking distance to charleston's historic sights. Not only is it not that close -- most people not wearing hiking boots would drive to the sights -- the area around it is a bit sketchy.... More

I stayed here just Christmas and had a great stay. I was greeted by the staff with kindness and concern at every point upon my arrival. The location is one block off of King Street and is at the northern points of the city nightlife but well within a short cab ride to anything if you are too lazy to... More

My fiancé and I really enjoyed our trip to Charleston and a large part of it was due to the excellent hotel choice. We ended up coming into town a night early and I was able to easily add the night at the same rate I initially booked the room. The front desk made sure we were all set up... More

The location of this hotel is awesome because you access King Street and Arthur Ravenel bridge via walking. The hotel is very clean and the staff has a great attitude and willingness to help. Parking is $16 though with limited alternatives. The only bad experiences that we had is that the free coffee ran out downstairs and there was around... More

We requested a room with a balcony, hoping to enjoy the outdoor in the evening. We didn't realized that the balcony is on the second floor and it is back up to a dark alley. Someone could have pull up in a van and jump on to our balcony as there were not fence or anything. We were afraid to... More

Thank you for leaving a review. We do not have any balcony rooms on the second floor so I would assume you were upgraded to one of our patio rooms. Private spacious patio with table and chairs. While you raise concerns regarding your safety, I can assure you, nobody could possibly scale a thirty foot brick wall and enter your... More
