The area the hotel is located is in an up and coming location within walking distance to many of the local restaurants and shops on King Street. The staff was exceptionally courteous and helpful. The happy hour in the hotel restaurant was made even "happier" due to the accompanying appetizers which were excellent. The pimento cheese and peanut humus were... More

Our first encounter at this hotel was with valet who also assisted with our luggage to our room. Corbin! Total professional gentleman who ensured we knew our room amenities and helped with local spots to visit.

I spent a week at the Holiday Inn in the beautiful downtown historic area of Charleston and couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised! This was my first stay in a Holiday Inn (not HI Express) and I really liked the modern look/feel to the hotel. The rooms were increasingly comfortable and quiet. I never heard my neighbors even though both... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for three nights recently and were very impressed with the superb customer service offered by the staff at this new hotel. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others. The valets work particularly hard here and provided excellent restaurant recommendations. The lobby
