“Family Wedding Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Great service from the front desk to breakfast crew that took care of us. Danielle (front desk), Jami, Robin, Elaine (restaurant) were GREAT. Thanks for making our weekend stress free. Our daughter got married at Founders Hall at Charles Towne Landing so we needed to be close to the venue. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast buffett was delicious with lots of choices with area constantly being cleaned by the staff. Thanks again for a wonderful weekend. Will definitely recommend to others.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 3rd floor were very quiet. Asked for family and friends to have adjoining rooms. Daniel...

Great staff and convenient location. Rooms are small but nice. The shower is quite small, very European. The comp breakfast was the usual but the staff running the room was excellent. They kept the buffet stocked and the tables clean.

Just returned home after one night at the Holiday Inn Express Downtown. I couldn't have asked for a more relaxing evening. The young lady that checked me in was delightful and very accommodating. My King room was very clean, and the bed was comfortable and fresh. Internet connection was strong and uncomplicated. Hotel was very convenient to The Citadel, where we enjoyed the Candlelight Christmas Concert at Summerall Chapel. Kudos on your Breakfast Staff.....good food, and a nice large dining area. All in all, Holiday Inn Express Charleston-Downtown is a great place to stay while visiting beautiful Charleston.

It was our pleasure to have you as our guest. We make a great location when visiting the Citadel, being only a half mile away. And it was a beautiful concert!

Our stay centered around visiting a family member at MUSC. Front Desk staff gracious and helpful at check-in and check-out. Carolyn, Elaine & Mike treated us like family during breakfast and every other time we saw or needed them! Definitely would stay there again.

I spent 3 nights at the hotel and was extremely surprized at the wonderful professional care by all staff especially the front desk manager Harrison.
The expert assistance for local tours was honest and correct for our stay. Trying to get a cab was helped by the front desk staff. I would recommend this to anyone who is new to the area.

Room Tip: 6th floor in the back is great and beautiful view

We stayed in Charleston due to the hospitalization of a loved one. The Holiday Inn Express, Downtown - Ashley River was perfect for us. Rooms were clean, access to the hospital easy, and the rates reasonable (even have a hospital discount). Best was the service. Every single staff member we encountered was friendly, accommodating and dedicated to ensuring our visit was a good one. Of note were Robin, Mike and Chris - each of whom contributed in a special way to our stay. Lastly - the breakfast was THE BEST hotel breakfast I've ever had - hands down!!!! Highly recommend this hotel when in the Charleston area - especially if you have family or friends a MUSC.
