Although I travel to Charleston, sc often for work this was my first stay at this well kept secret. The rooms are a great value. The view from the room are stellar.

I really appreciated the free shuttle service to the historic district. It runs every 2 h from 7:30a- 9:30p. Also, the view from the top floor lounge was nice. However, just because you have an upper floor room, does not mean your view will be something you want to see. Ours' was a construction zone.

We came to Charleston for the Bacon and bourbon festival and from the point of check in to the great breakfast buffet the following morning this gem was well worth the money. No free breakfast. ...but with the stunning sunrise the top floor restaurant offers the $12 was well spent. The whole staff had southern hospitality down to a science.... More

A+ guest service from the front door to the rooftop restaurant and lounge. Beautiful view of city and harbor from the dining room. We stayed on 14th floor west side could not see harbor but the sunset was awesome. Very close to MUSC. Definitely recommend.

This hotel is a solid value for the rates charged and a pleasant place to stay. It’s not the Ritz, but it is clean and convenient and has character and some of the best views in Charleston.

Not only do you get perhaps the most glorious view in all of Charleston, the staff - in particular Mr Derek and Miss Jo - are wonderful.
