I am a hotel snob and never stay at Holiday Inn's but I would stay here again in a second! It was fantastic. So clean huge room close to everything I wanted to do and see. Kristin and Ben at the front desk went above and beyond for me and my group. We made a last min reservation here and... More

We were in town for a long weekend and a wedding. Seems like there are plenty of weddings in Charleston and I can see why. With all the plantations around that are excellent venues for a wedding. We were greeted by the hotel staff as if we had been friends for years. I, being from the south understand Southern Hospitality... More

The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgable. The amenities were great -- wonderful patio off the room, nice breakfast restaurant and bar and a reading/lending library on the second floor! Valet parking isn't cheap, but the parking staff and service is top notch!

This hotel was truly a pleasant surprise to us. From the time we checked in to the time we left, every staff person was polite, friendly, and actually seemed sincere. During my working years, I have probably spent between two and three years living in hotels. When I worked in Atlanta we had a relationship with the Ritz Carleton. The... More

The location of the hotel was perfect. To get to the hotel from the airport, we took the Dash express 4 bus to the visitor center. The hotel is a short 5 minute walk from the visitor center bus hub. $3.00 each way, nothing can beat that~ From the hotel we were able to walk to everywhere we needed around... More

Hotel is very clean and modern. I ordered room service and it was great and prompt. The lobster corn chowder was AWESOME. The only con to this hotel is the only parking offered is valet parking at $16 a night.

Awesome place and decent location if you're looking for a go between north bound and the historic district. Its just a free bus ride downtown (avoiding the hunt for a parking space like the Lost Ark). It's a hop, skip, and jump to the main routes just five minutes heading either north, east, or west. The rooms are clean in... More

The hotel is new, very nice lobby, and the rooms are most spacious. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely consider staying here again. Great trip! The beds were very comfortable with an assortment of pillows to choose.

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.
