Great location. Charleston is not a vast city and from the hotel you can be anywhere in 10min. Great view from the roof top restaurant. It closes at 22 which is unfortunate.. The price/quality is not at all adeguate... I spent 200$/night .. Peak season, ok but way too high

This is a Great Hotel, rooms are clean and comfy. It is close to downtown offering a shuttle to get you there. The staff are all so nice and helpful...especially Derek in the Lounge at the top! Oh... And the Breakfast buffet is yummy with a view!

The hotel rooms were fine, nothing special, but work fine for what we paid. Very comfortable beds and pillows. The staff was great and very friendly and knowledgable of the area and had some great idea's for our weekend away.

Reading all the reviews we certainly missed out. We got our room via Hotels.com and after the fact see people raving about the views. Ours was of a highway with no water in sight, so make sure you ask for a good view! The room was clean, but had a peculiar smell. It was almost like the cleaning supplies and... More

Bathrooms even smaller. Outdated, can't open balcony door. Room cleanliness was ok, but the rest of hotel was not good, especially the elevators. Pros: complimentary shuttle, free parking, river view, fairly close to downtown and beaches. Cons: Small rooms and bathrooms, staff not very polite and helpful, small "common area" to relax. Not a welcoming hotel and absolutely no attempt... More

We had a school reunion at the HI Charleston Riverview and they were very accommodating. They gave us a great group rate, organized a tasty dinner buffet for us, worked hard to help us find breakfast tables close enough to each other every morning. The bar and wait staff were superb - Derek, the bartender, took very good care of... More
