This is the BEST Hilton Garden Inn. Just opened in april 2014 and it feels more like a full service Hilton. Rooms are beautiful, staff is great and it's a 1.3 mile walk to the heart of downtown Charleston. The walk is safe and in a great part of town. We did drive because we weren't sure about the safety... More

Not having a bible in the room did not stop this hotel from being a good value in the holy city. Nice gym, easy parking, clean spacious rooms. We come to Charleston often and would certainly stay here again.

No bible in room. I can not give them a good rating based on this. Being PC for a minority is not good. Will not come here again even though it is a good location for me. Other hotels in the area that are nice and better pricing that respects Christians.

Stayed here for two nights during a recent trade show in Charleston and had a very nice stay. The rooms were spacious and fresh, the staff was professional and competent, and the breakfast buffet was good. The only downside is the hotel location in the riverfront area, too far to walk to the historic district and there are no restaurants... More

The hotel is new and clean. This is important to me, even more important to my wife. Since we have traveled consistently in our careers, we prep accordingly and have our expectations with certain brands of hotels. This was great from check-in to check out. Great Director of Sales, Mamie Bush.

We had a wonderful time during our stay at the Hilton Garden Inn. This location is not in the historic downtown area so a rental car is advisable. I really preferred having a car and enjoyed the downtown waterfront, city market, and the plantation tours away from town. One of my favorite tours was the Boon Plantation. I would recommend... More

Traveling for business in Charleston and had the pleasure of staying at this new Hilton Garden Inn. Hotel is close to downtown with a free shuttle and has gorgeous views from the hotel of the River. Staff went out of their way to make you feel at home.

Charleston is already one of my favorite get-away locations. I did not know about this particular Hilton Garden Inn until I was looking for a hotel for our recent vacation. When I saw that it was located at the Ashley Marina on the Ashley River, I was elated. From the time of reservation to the time of check-out, the Hilton... More

Value doesn't mean lowest price. Value means getting what you pay for. You can stay near the Charleston Historic District for less, but I think this new hotel (opened in April 2014) gives you the satisfaction of knowing that it's worth the price. Right on the Ashley River, there's adequate parking (something difficult to find in the heart of the... More
