Thank you for a great time. Room service can be slow but that isn't why we were at hotel. Great location and very new. Anyone staying here should consider the Marina and shop restaurant down the street to eat. Great food!

Incredible location on waterfront downtown. Hotel looks good, feels good, free safe parking, nice common areas and outdoor balconies to explore. Restaurant and bar. Free coffee, exercise room, computer rm, etc etc etc. All, I repeat All employees seemed friendly except skinny blonde girl checking us in. Go figure. Would definitely stay again. On 1to10 scale I give them a... More

We have stayed here 2x and have always enjoyed our stay. The room are super clean and the beds are amazing. Great location as we had to be to MUSC for dr visits. The food was great and the service top notch. I would call it a boutique reasonably priced hotel.

The location of this property is terrific as was the entire staff. Unfortunately, the construction of this new hotel's walls is a major fail. We stayed in room 324 and could hear every word spoken from the neighboring rooms. It wasn't the typical case of another guest speaking in a loud voice but it was as if they were in... More

I do not trust housekeeping at this location...I've been staying there since day one...I accidently left my watch and my Gold bracelet in two different weeks back to back...They both disappeared and no one can seem to find out what happened to them...So my only guess is that the room is haunted with their thieving ghost..

Clean and new! Not our usual location for our Charleston trips (4 times/year), but have been wanting to give it a go once it was up and running. This is a riverfront property, with direct access to 17, 30, and all streets to downtown. Very convenient with a car, includes self parking. Would not recommend this as a property if... More

We have stayed in as many as ten hotels in the Charleston area. Over Christmas, while visiting family, we stayed at the newest Hilton property in Charleston. Parking was safe and covered under hotel. Elevator up to check-in. Friendly staff. Room overlooked river for beautiful sunsets. Beds comfortable. Shower was hot and towels soft. Breakfast came with our reservations and... More

Great stay! Had a king room with a balcony view of Ashley River. Gorgeous. Hilton Garden Inn is a new property, very clean, well sized rooms and nice showers. Would recommend staying here. Spent two nights here and will for sure return! Hilton Garden Inn provides free transportation to old downtown every hour on the hour up eleven in the... More
