We had never been to Charleston, and went there for our wedding anniversary. My wife booked the hotel online and specifically requested that we stay in the main building. When we arrived, we found out that we were booked in the annex across the street and there were not any other rooms available.
After dodging the cars to cross the street, we made it to the annex with our bellman. We walk in the lobby area (the annex does not have any hotel staff), and then proceeded to the stairs to get to our room... yes... stairs.
After going through a maze to get to our room, the bellman gave us keys (he pointed out that the numbers on the key do not match the room number... I dont understand that) and showed us our VERY SMALL room!
The walls were so thin... the next morning I was awakened by someone in the next room raising the toilet seat... and going to the bathroom. Yes, you could hear it. We could also hear them blow their nose, talk, and shower. We were thankful that they were older or we might have heard other things. We never met them, but could tell that they were older after hearing them discuss which pills they needed to take that day.
The shower leaked, and there was moldy gunk on the floor. And our first night there we did not have a top sheet on the bed. Just a bottom sheet and a comforter.
The breakfast was good. But the refreshments in the lobby were never kept full... or even refilled at all for that matter.
Three days later, and over $600 later, we left.
Charleston is nice, and the hotel COULD be very nice, but we would not stay here again.
