The Riverview Holiday Inn is situated in a great part of the city, with beautiful views overlooking the river. It is only a short taxi ride to the main attractions and there is a free hotel shuttle for those more patient amongst us.
The rooms are very comfortable and clean although the number of TV channels was a bit more limited than other hotels I have experienced. That said, who wants to sit in their room anyway.
The top floor restaurant offers great views or the area, especially at night with the lights flickering off the water. The dinner menu is quite good, with a distinct local flavour. The breakfast is a little less impressive but was still enjoyable.
For the smokers amongst us, sitting outside for a quick puff is a great way to meet locals and other tourists with a knowledge of the area who can point out attractions you might otherwise miss.
I will happily stay there when back in Charleston.
