We reserved king room and they dis not honor. Said hotel policy is to not hold room type. Room is dated. Tv has VHS to give you an idea of vintage.

I took a friend with me to the Charleston Place Hotel for a girlfriend's weekend. It was wonderful. The hotel is simply beautiful, the staff could not be more accommodating and accessible and the location is perfect for touring Charleston. From the moment you are greeted by the valets when you pull up to the day you reluctantly say goodby at the end of your trip, it's like your every wish is anticipated and granted. The rooms are beautiful and quiet , the beds comfy. Our room was very warm when we checked in from the afternoon sun and our valet immediately called for engineering to come up and fix it - this was before he even took the luggage off the bellcart. Engineering came within 15 minutes and within 30 minutes our room was almost chilly. The location is right across the street from the famous Charleston Market and there are also loads of restaurants and shops to visit. We didn't move our car until time to leave. I highly recommend this hotel for a special occasion.

I wanted to surprise my boyfriend with a special one year anniversary/birthday gift. I decided spending a weekend at the Charleston Place Hotel would be quite a nice weekend. We were tired of traveling so I thought a "staycation" was the perfect way to celebrate special occasions without lots of travel. We really enjoyed all of the ammenities the Charleston Place offered. After happy hour and hors d'oeuvres at the lounge, we dined at the Charleston Grill. The food and wine were to die for! The entire weekend we were provided with five-star service. I am looking forward to the next time we have a special occasion to celebrate!

I stayed at Charleston Place on my wedding night. The staff treated us great! When we arrived there were rose petals on the bed, a bottle of champagne, and chocolate cover strawberries. It was the perfect way to start our honeymoon!!

From the Southern welcome at the front portico to your sad all-too-soon departure, Charleston Place will exceed your every expectation for charm and class. The decor is impressive, classic, and comfortable. The restaurants and menu choices will suit every mood. The indoor shops, the fitness center, the pool, the spa, and the variety of bars will pleasantly fill your leisure time. Best of all, the friendly and efficient staff will provide attention to every detail such as turning down your sumptuous bedding and placing nightly treats upon your pillow. Do you deserve this treatment? Charleston Place convinces you that you do.

Expensive but worth the price to treat oneself. We have been to Charleston many times and stayed in other hotels and B&B's that we like, but. CP rates at the top of the list. Excellent service, first rate rooms, friendly and attentive staff --they do everything well.

The hotel and Spa at Charleston Place is simply superb! Classy, elegant and right in the middle of historic Charleston. The room was well appointed and comfortable, the service was excellent and the spa was first class. Although I was there on business, I would definitely go back for a little get away. I am looking forward to my next trip to Charleston and my next stay at Charleston Place!
