I stayed in The Roberts Room as a solo traveler in October. October is a lovely time to visit Charleston, and Two Meeting Street Inn is one of the loveliest places to stay, which is no small feat considering the variety of accommodations available. Right across the street from White Point Gardens, it was so nice to be able to find a free overnight parking spot, as I am used to paying $20+/night for valet or garages when I have stayed elsewhere in town. The Roberts Room was very cozy with a lovely little window seat. The door to the bathroom is right next to the door to the bedroom, but when the two doors are open they can be latched together. The bathroom was absolutely adorable, situated under the eaves. I could have spent my entire stay luxuriating in the beautiful clawfoot tub. There is a handheld attachment, but if you need a full shower, you are better off booking a different room. Remember that this is a beautiful old home and does not have an elevator, so if you have an issue with stairs, book a room on a lower floor. The staff will deliver your bags to your room, of course.
The service was amazing. I was greeted warmly and given a tour and information about the home. The afternoon tea was delicious, and the sherry available in the dining room was a nice touch. Sitting at one of the garden tables with some sherry and a book, or enjoying breakfast on the porch with a view of the battery, is something that every visitor to Charleston should experience.
