I stay in a lot of hotels, and to be honest, most of the time, Marriott's. However, this Hotel experience was top notch and one of the best stays I have had in years. I travel a great deal and stay at a lot of hotels. Jenn, Coleman, and Kristi were awesome and they are some of the most lovely... More

Stayed at this hotel in mid-May. It had just opened and you could really tell due to the problems associated with new hotels that open a little earlier than they should. The staff did adjust the room fee to my satisfaction. The physical location is very nice; the pool is one of the best hotel swimming pools I've been to.... More

The hotel opened just a month or so before we visited, and it showed. Our booking was not correct (2 of our family of 4 were booked in) but we were eventually given a nice room.

one of the nice's Hilton Garden Inns I have ever stayed at. Stayed their because of there closeness to MUSC .08 of a mile. Great Rates for MUSC patients to stay at and would diffidently stay there on a vacation or business trips. Can't say enough about this place.

Easy access from highway. Shuttle service to downtown area very convenient. Staff was very friendly and great recommendation from the bartender on the Pearlz Oyster Bar. Free parking and WiFi is a plus.

Very convenient to The Citadel's campus. Brand new hotel. Helpful staff. Free covered parking. Beautiful views of the Ashley River and marina. This HGI will be our "go to" hotel when visiting our son at The Citadel over the next four years.

Stayed at HGI. Great view of the harbor from our room and from the pool. Microwave, fridge and FREE internet was a great asset during our stay. FREE shuttle service was perfect for our trips downtown, no need to pay to park! Larry the driver was a great tour guide on the ride downtown and the perfect drop off point... More
