I recently stayed here with my roommate for a weekend get away for Charleston Pride and let me just say I could not have been happier with my choice! What a beautiful brand new hotel in a GREAT location!
1. The hotel was new, and with that comes glitches in systems, processes and team members. This team did a great job to try and minimize any inconveniences, and did quite well in fact. During this weekend a real nasty afternoon storm came through and lightening struck a transformer near by which knocked out power for about 2 hours. Unfortunately this also knocked out all 4 of their elevators. By the end of the day the 2 main ones were back up and running however there were two others that had not been repaired by the time we checked out... Not really a big deal.
2. This was a sold out weekend for them and so naturally parking would be a little bit of an issue. This time a little more than normal for 2 reasons. 1st, during this storm two of their palms got uprooted and were leaning toward two of their parking spaces. As a precaution those spaces were blocked off just incase they fell. 2nd, someone decided to park their f150 over two spaces instead of the one they should have, thankfully the night auditor was wonderful and called the hotel next door to see if I could borrow a space from their lot.
3. The room itself was spacious and well decorated.It was clean, smelled fresh, and aside from the smell of new construction did not smell anything else. In addition the beds were comfortable and loved the towels in the room.
Overall this hotel is a GREAT find and I can't wait till I travel to Charleston again as this will be my choice of hotel. I will recommend this place to my friends, family, and colleagues traveling to this area.
