This gem is truly in the heart of Charleston. Everything is sooooo close that I don't believe we could have done better. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Cleanliness is important to me and I had no complaints. The beds were so comfortable. Then there's the complimentary wine and cheese for guests from 4 to 5 pm (lemonade if you don't want wine) . And for those with a sweet tooth...cookies or biscotti with coffee, tea, or lemonade always seemed to be available in the lobby. BUT the best part of our stay was the complimentary breakfast. This in my opinion sets the bar for "Continental" breakfasts. Of course they had hot/cold cereals, yogurt and fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs, fresh pastries, bagels, and different varieties of sliced breads. The coffee was very good. My FAVORITE part was the hot surprise waiting in the warmers each morning...egg dishes, quiche, french toast with berries...So delicious and satisfying that we never had lunch ...only dinner. SANDY you out did yourself each day. Cynthia you made us feel at home. A boutique hotel it is...quaint. Truth be told ...my mom stayed here a year ago and had a positive experience which is why I came this July. I enjoyed it and now its your turn.
