My husband and I have attended quite a few meetings at this hotel but we actually stayed here this past weekend. We have always found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The hotel decor is very attractive and the suite was perfect. The hot breakfast is very good and varies from day to day.
The fourth floor has recently been refurbished. At this moment the second floor is under renovations.
The hotel does not get five stars from me because there is not sufficient parking. We had to park on the shoulder of the road out front. We had a suite with an eastern exposure. I never figured out the source but there was a frequent, loud, dull "roar" that seemed to come from somewhere outside. If you have a choice ask for a fourth-floor room that does not face east.
The hotel calls itself "Downtown/Riverview" but it is neither downtown nor does it have what I would call a view of the river. Yes, you can see the river if you look over parking lots and the tops of other buildings but in my mind "Riverview" conjures up the idea of a hotel on the river. It is not that. The hotel is actually located west of the Ashley River. You cannot walk to downtown. There is a shuttle service. As long as potential guests understand the situation I would recommend this hotel as a good place to stay in Charleston.
