I found this great trick on the "name your own price" website, which i will not name here - I'm sure it's against policy. But with bigger cities, N.Y.C, Chicago, L.A., Atl, and tourist-oriented cities (Charleston SC) it's really possible to stay in the nicest hotels for 50% off - even at the last minute. The Mills House is one of the nice, old 4-star Charleston hotels in the heart of the hisotric district. With the hotels rates regularly more than $200, I was thrilled with the deal I got - and the hotel was nearly sold out.
The downside to "name your own price," is that the website pick the hotel for you, and once you submit your credit card, that's it - no changing your mind. So most people are reluctant fearing they'll be given a crapy room in a flea-bag motel. Well fear not, because with Charleston, and the other cities I mentioned, you can pick the minimum "Star Level" you desire, which in this case was a "4." AND you can pick the general area, in this case "downtown hisotric district." So how can you go wrong? It woldn't have mattered to me what hotel i was given, becasue I know it would be an excellent choice, e..g. minimum 4-star in the hisotric district.
Now, the hotel itself (my second stay) is not opulent, but it is charming and has all the ammenties you'd expect in a 4-star property. Walking distance to many of the best restaurants, and valet that's the smae price as the public parking garge, 2 blocks away.
The standard room is small, but plenty big enough for 2. I've never seen the delux rooms and suites, but I'm sure they're wonderful too. So whether you get lucky enough on the "name your own price" website or you pay rate, and choose the Mills House on the front end - this is a fine hotel, with a friendly staff - not as snooty as ome others in town.
