I was a performer in the Piccolo Spoleto Festival this year, and was thrilled with the superb accommodations provided by this Holiday Inn. I travel often, and small things such as amenities and staff that go above and beyond their duties make my trips that much smoother. In this case, both superseded my expectations, and two staff members deserve particular... More

My husband and I decided to spend our anniversary in Chareleston. Since it fell on Memorial Day, and with the Spoleto Festival in full swing, there were very few rooms available. My husband stays at a Holiday Inn Express in FL for business. While we wanted to go more upscale, there was an availability in this Holiday Inn so we... More

We just checked in today and are sorely disappointed. To begin with our rooms weren't ready and that's understandable because it was 1:00. We were told they would call us when the rooms were ready and they didn't. We returned to the hotel at 4 and they were ready. Our friends got up to there room, pulled the covers back... More

We where visiting the College of Charleston with our daughter and decided to stay here since it was close to everything. The front desk staff was amazing, 2 young boys greeted us and went out of their way to make our stay better. We had a very comfortable room, no noise from the streets and we slept very well. The...

First off, this was the weekend of my daughter's graduation from the College of Charleston. ALL the hotels were booked and overpriced for Friday May 8 and Saturday May 9. What surprised all of us was the excellent service of all the employees. They went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. We loved our waiter Thomas and... More

it is in the rim of the "Historic District" in Charleston but if you have a car you will be fine, unless you take advantage of the free trolley which the stop is right in front of the hotel, room was clean, large, (view? well, it as a parking lot view)... friendly front desk staff, bathroom could have a little...

New, very clean, very modern hotel closest to the upper King Street area of Historic Charleston. At first I was disappointed that I was "so far" from the action of the Historic downtown area, but still close to vistors center, the History Museum. But then realized that it was so great to be right down the street from Glazed, Callies... More

I start with a question. "Where were you when the Ravenel Bridge closed down on May 26 from 11AM-7:30PM? My wife and I were stuck in downtown Charleston at 11AM and were not up to a 3-4 hour ride to go home in Mount Pleasant. At around 2PM after we had lunch we decided to look into a trip home....

Milana was amazing, haven't met a nicer person who goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and welcome. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the pool is very nice. I am in the service instustry myself and it's hard to impress me, but they know your name, open doors and are very quick to greet you with... More
