Fiancee and I wanted to get away for a couple of days after Christmas so we decided to head down to Charleston for a couple of days.
Had originally booked a chain hotel until I came across this place - looked nice so I booked it and cancelled at the chain - best decision I ever made!
Reserved room 11 in the Carriage House and arrived a little early on 12/28 Room wasn't ready so we headed up to the Hominy Grill for a late lunch (we highly recommend it!) and a little sightseeing - this wasn't our first time in Charleston so we actually spent the next few hours shopping on King Street.
Returned around 5:30 and Morgan registered us - very easy check in. Morgan was very pleasant and answered all of our questions without hesitation - even got a few PB cookies, lol! The inn was still decorated for the holidays and added to the ambiance
The room was very nice - hardwood floors, four poster bed and plenty of antique furniture. The only downside we noticed were a few dust bunnies and what appeared to be some mold on the shower tile grout. Otherwise the room was beautiful and what we expected in our first stay in a historic inn/B&B. Dinner was at 82 Queen - a 15 minute walk like Morgan said and another highly recommended restaurant. Slept very well - rooms were quieter than we expected and extra pillows found in the armoire.
Had requested breakfast be brought to us and it arrived on a silver platter a couple of minutes before our reqauested time. Then off to Boone Plantation and the Battery. More shopping on King St and then to Pearlz Oyster Bar for dinner.
All in all, it was an extremely pleasant stay. The location could NOT be beat - literally footsteps to King Street! Yes, the views out of the window were of the CoC's fitness center and a parking lot but that was not the Inn's fault and we felt safe in our rooms and walking the streets even late at night. Free access to the kitchen and all its amenities was very nice.
Check out was even easier than the check in and we agreed that we will be back!!!
