First, love the vibe of this place. It is a true boutique hotel. So many great things about it including: location, decor, cleanliness, friendly staff, homemade cookies and milk every night and breakfast in a picnic basket delivered to your doorstep every morning. Need I say more?
Location: right off of King Street. If you know anything about Charleston then you know that King Street is where everything happens. Great food and great shopping. This boutique hotel is literally right off of King Street. Easy walk everywhere.
Decor: Modern decor with a Pottery Barn-like feel. Very warm and welcoming. Clean lines, but very comfortable. Light colors, beachy colors. Exposed brick.
Rooms: They are mini condos. Probably safe to say that this was meant to be condos, but then the recession hit and someone had the genius idea to make it a hotel instead. Our room was a 1 bedroom with a full kitchen, laundry in unit, spacious bathroom and spacious living room. It was spotless.
Staff: Everyone was very friendly. Very accommodating. Very attentive (and they were sold out).
One note: a lot of people who reviewed this place complained about the thin walls- the hotel was sold out the night we stayed and we did not hear anything. And I'm pretty sensitive to noise. The only thing you heard was people in the hallway, but that's typical of any hotel.
It's easy to see why this got the Trip Advisor Traveler’s Award.
Next time my husband and I come back we will stay here again and again. We will also be recommending this property to our friends and family when they visit Charleston.
