We are currently staying at the Doubletrree in the historic district. It is a great choice --clean, close to everything, friendly staff. We had to change our reservation at the last minute to arrive a day earlier, and John was very helpful in adding an extra night on to our reservation. The location is perfect! We have easily walked much of this part of the city (over 10 miles in the past two days) and the hotel is at the heart of it all. There is no need for a rental when you stay so centrally located. Our room is very quiet and clean. Free wifi for HH members is fast and convenient. Everyone that we have met has been very helpful and friendly. Maid service was timely and the room was well made up. The bathroom is large and clean and the towels are great! Did I mention the location????
Why only four stars? The room is much smaller then we are used to from Hilton properties -- even the "larger King" that we booked seems smaller then any we have stayed in before. We get that space is a premium in the HD so we opted for the "larger"room. We were disappointed to have a view of a wall only feet from our window, and looking to the side is the top of a tent in the courtyard. It makes the room seem smaller and darker. Perhaps you will have better luck with a view -although this location in the property has been very quiet. We are in a separate building across the courtyard from the main part of the hotel and it would be nice if they had morning coffee service in the entrance area to this building. We did stop for coffee in the main lobby after a breezy morning walk, only to find both large urns empty. That was surprising since it was just after nine in the morning. It would also be nice to have cold water or something refreshing available in the lobby when returning back each afternoon and evening. This is something we have always found at other hotels and instead we had to venture to another floor in search of vending to get a drink of water for $1.75. These are little hospitality things that go a long way towards making guests feel welcome and promoting brand loyalty.
Overall, a clean and comfortable room and friendly staff paired with the perfect location make this a great choice for a Charleston stay.
