“Would definitely stay here again.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Location about as good as it gets, right next to the downtown market and many great attractions and restaurants. Carriages and bike taxis readily available. Staff very friendly and professional; addressed a request promptly. Room clean and bed comfortable. Only suggestion is to install a snack machine in the building in which our room was located.

This DoubleTree location offers fantastic access to the heart of Charleston. What the facility lacks in modern convenience (which isn't much) the staff makes up for with old school southern manners and hospitality. Pull up a bowl of grits at the continental breakfast and walk off the extra butter in the must see downtown just outside the front door.

Note that the property was under renovation during our stay, but it lost none of its charm in the effort and the staff was very accommodating in moving us away from the work zone.

From our 4th floor honors room we could see the Yorktown, the bridge, horse buggies, market, and water front (some wires in between)! Wonderful! Room had two separate rooms, nice double beds and roll out couch.

Breakfast was a restaurant with nice choices, omlets available.

Note: inside entrance being revamped. Hotel is so convenient to market and other sightseeing. Nice walk to water.
If you don't know, walking in many parts of Charleston is difficult due to uneven surfaces

Enjoy Charleston in the winter! Few crowds and no waits! No 100 degree weather! However, not nearly as many outside decorations as you may expect.

Another great stay at this Doubletree! This time we had a beautiful room in the back building -- a little larger and more elegant. Too bad we couldn't stay longer! (Love those warm cookies.......)

So nice to feel welcomed by the women who staff the breakfast service. So warm and friendly. Really adds to the whole experience!

Room Tip: This time we had a room in the back building. I think it is newer than the front of the house. Roo...

This hotel and staff make you feel a part of the culture of Charleston. There is no commercial feel that is so common these days. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The local restaurants within easy walking distance were all outstanding. This is the only place we will stay when we revisit the city.

Great location, super staff and very nice hotel. Rooms are a little quirky if you get the two level but cool. I was there when a "cold snap" ( I do not really consider 45 degrees cold) came through and the rooms were way too warm for me and windows would not open. Easy walking to great restaurants, the market and the waterfront. Highly recommend this as both a city to visit and a hotel to stay at in Charleston.

Had a nice stay here. Great central location close to shopping and restaurants. The only complaint I would have is that the tub drained very slow and I stood in water every morning for the shower. Other than that it was great. Large rooms that made it not feel like a hotel. Would stay here again
