My husband & I met with another couple to see Charleston by bike and by foot. Holiday Inn Charleston Historic Downtown was a wonderful location. We saw Charleston from The Citadel to the historic area & market area by bike, all the way to Patriot's Point. We walked to dinner each night. I enjoyed the omelets and fresh fruit each... More

I stayed here as part of a wedding block this past weekend. The nightly rate was steep, even with the supposed wedding block discount, but the hotel was just what we needed. I was in a king room on the 5th floor with a beautiful view of the bridge. The pool area is nice, and the front lobby has a... More

This is a quality hotel in a good location. Milana in the lobby restaurant/bar provided top notch service. She went above and beyond to assure we all had what we needed and provided nothing shy of superb service! They have good happy hour specials here and a great pool area as well. Short walking distance to great restaurants and shopping.... More

Recently back from a short stay in Charleston as part of a 2 week fly drive holiday in Tennessee & the Carolinas. Before I review the hotel I think it’s safe to say that everyone in my party absolutely fell in love with Charleston and we will defiantly be returning at the first opportunity. The city has everything you could... More

I was on the fence about booking here based on the walking distance to the historic district and the reviews about the neighborhood. I'll start my review with these 2 topics: Walking Distance to the Historic Area - We worked around this, using our car more than we expected to. On the first day, before checking into the hotel, we... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Though it is not in the heart of the historic district it was on the free trolley line and conveniently poised between the upscale and trendy entertainment district and the historic area. My only two complaints were that 1. They didn't do a great job of being truly helpful at the front... More

Clean, crisp hotel with helpful staff and surprizing great food. I checked in during a really busy time in Charleston. I was tired, had lost my debit card and I was a day early. They were able to get a room for me, and handled the check-in with professionalism and were clearly used to a business clientele. The property was... More

We drove to this Hotel from Maryland's Eastern shore-about a 8 hour drive- and it was easy to find. The staff could not have been more courteous and helpful with luggage and checking-in. However, this Hotel is not in the "hart" of downtown, however it is in the Hart of both the college bars & restaurants on King Street(2 blocks... More

This hotel was a bang for the buck. Great room for an affordable price. Trendy style and clean space. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating, the location could have been in a better location though.

Stayed here with a large wedding group from Wed. through Monday. Sarah was amazing at the front desk. Sarah even helped with my laundry since I needed to be somewhere:) Katie was nice, but seemed a little clueless at times. They put two of our wedding guests in the wrong rooms and she could not fix it, then could not... More

Tyler D, Guest Relations Manager at Holiday Inn Charleston Historic Downtown, responded to this review

Dear MCLVII, We thank you for choosing to stay with us and for your review about your experience while visiting Charleston. We are not sure why you didn't see the trolley, as it runs on a schedule daily. We discussed the Burger Special issue and have resolved that so there will be no issues in the future. Thank you again... More
