Hotel great, however internet very slow, and no shade at the pool, It was 99 and 106 with the heat index. Balcones were lock, I did not like this. Hotel staff from the manager "KATHY" to the bartender "Aron White" were great. Entering roads was a night mire, but the hotel was proable there before the divid highway.

My husband and I met his mom and our 7 year old niece at this hotel and we stayed in a 2 queen room for 2 nights. The front desk people were not very friendly - not what we were expecting with all the southern hospitality in the area. Could hardly get smiles from them. The room was a good... More

My husband and I stay here often, and love it everytime. From the complimentary charter van that runs downtown charleston to the panoramic view top floor restaurant/bar and everything in between.

My family and I stayed here for two nights before a carnival cruise. We did the park and cruise package. They shuttled us to the cruise port and gave all of us breakfast in their restaurant (buffet) each morning. The hotel had a nice location, being close to all activities.

We were traveling around in the south, with no real plan or schedule. We got into Charleston late one afternoon, and started looking for a hotel. We did find a couple, north of the city, which were not acceptable for various reasons. We took a chance and tried the Holiday Inn Riverview. At the desk, we were told they were... More

The staff was very friendly and attentive to our questions. The shuttle to the downtown area was great and much appreciated. It is definitely difficult to exit the hotel parking lot onto 17 so we appreciated letting someone else do it! The location was by far the best feature of this hotel. There was a lot to do close by... More
