21 East Battery is one of a kind. Charming, historic, impeccably restored, wonderful ambience, incredible views over the harbor and Ft. Sumter, cocktails on the piazza of the Edmonston Alston house, extraordinary hospitality by Julie the innkeeper, around the corner from some of the most beautiful streets in Charleston, great parking...what more could one ask for? Can't wait to come... More

Marvelous historic setting and impeccable service. Julie, the caretaker, looks after the guests as if they were family and showers them with delicious home-baked treats. This was our second post-Christmas holiday in a row and have decided to make it an annual tradition (hence we have already reserved for next year). You can leave your car parked in the drive...

To celebrate my wife's birthday, we visited Charleston for three days and stayed at 21 East Battery based upon consistently excellent reviews. We were not disappointed. It is located in one of most historic and physically beautiful areas of the city, and is within walking distance of the best restaurants and shops. 21's innkeeper, Julie, took great care of us,...

This is a fantastic place to stay and gives you a real look into the historical character of the city. I've stayed before at Charleston Place and it's a luxury hotel, but at the end of the day you can experience that anywhere else in the world. This is truly a unique Charleston experience. The décor is great and matches... More

If you want to be a tourist stay in a hotel. If you want a true Charleston experience stay at 21 East Battery. The location, ambiance and hospitality are absolutely wonderful! My husband and I could have just stayed on the beautiful historic property and felt like we had seen Charleston. We hope to return to Charleston again and stay... More

21 East Battery was perfect, the decor was cozy & visually interesting. The welcoming warm walnut banana bread was amazing upon arrival. The kitchenette was perfect for storing leftovers & reheating, the crab quiche and other breakfast items were amazing. The fridge was always stocked with water, juice, fresh fruit & yogurt. Julie is such a good cook & wonderful... More

After an amazing, busy wedding weekend out at the plantations, we wanted to enjoy some down time on the Battery to enjoy downtown Charleston for our mini-moon for a few days. We were originally planning to only stay 2 nights, but while enjoying the beautiful scenery, weather and wonderful breakfast by Julie on the Carriage House balcony during our first... More

Tucked behind a classic early nineteenth century seaside mansion via a narrow brick drive, the two units of 21 East Battery are an oasis of quiet and green, just a few minutes walk from the center of the historic district. We stayed in the Carriage House for two nights in mid-October and were impressed by the care and taste that... More

21 East Battery was where we chose to spend our honeymoon. It is a wonderful location that is beautiful and historic. That being said, Julie was easily the best part about our stay. She was inviting, pleasant, funny and hospitable. She cooks really well, too. We left saying that if Julie was any other place in Charleston, we would choose... More

What a beautiful historic but so comfortable place, It was spotless and beautifully furnished. We were treated to wonderful quiches for breakfast, and delicious cakes....a blueberry cake to die for! Julie made a special birthday cake for my daughter's birthday. We walked to town with ease and enjoyed wine on the porch in the evenings. We spent 3 nights there... More
