We hadn't made reservations in advance, so I was very thankful that my husband and I could get this location. It was pretty dated looking, but everything was clean and in working order. The ladies at the front desk were superior, engaging in friendly conversation as they checked us in. We had a light dinner at their rooftop restaurant, again... More

I had wanted to stay at this iconic round hotel ever since I first saw it as a child in the 1970’d. So when an event that I was attending was in the hotel’s restaurant I jumped at the chance to stay there. The hotel has a great view of Charleston and my check in was handled perfect. I was... More

My husband and I had booked a long weekend in Charleston. We were looking forward to some time away after the loss of my Mother in Law and the loss of our beloved pet.

Clean, comfortable rooms. Excellent, helpful staff. Downside is that it is positioned in the middle of a divided highway and traffic noise in the morning was high. Also a downside is the distance from downtown. Shuttle bus provided which was good, but only every two hours. It needs to be every hour. Restaurant at the top was good to sit... More

We needed a place to stay for one night...the night before we left for our cruise. We decided to stay at this hotel b/c it allowed us to leave our car while we were gone on our cruise.

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.
