This is a nice hotel for the money in the historic district. It's within walking distance to many places and close to several restaurants. We rarely took the car out because it was much more convenient to walk. The rooms are very nice and the beds are comfortable. We found EVERY employee, from the manager to the maids, to be helpful and friendly. It's southern hospitality at its finest! The manager's reception in the evening is a great time to talk with the manager and get tips on restaurants, stores, and driving directions. One of the negatives is the covered parking lot. It is small for the size of the hotel and fills up quickly. If you are arriving in the evening, you will probably have to park across the street---but the hotel doesn't charge for parking like so many others do, so it is hard to complain! Internet service is free as well (unlike some other hotels in the area). The breakfast isn't free and some of the local restaurants are a little cheaper but it was nice to have the hotel restaurant on site. One safety feature that we liked was that we had to use our room key card to operate the elevator up into the building from the covered parking area. We never saw non-guests just wandering around and we felt very safe during our entire stay. Overall, it was a very comfortable stay in a friendly place. I would definitely stay here again if visiting historic Charleston!
