this hotel has friendly staff, charming lobby and rooms; beautiful hidden courtyard with ample seating to enjoy plants, flowers and fountain and talk about our trip; queen room was very comfortable, sofa for seating, clean and nicely decorated; our bed was turned down with chocolate left for us; cocktail hour - lemonade, tea, wine, fruit and cheese, as well as crab dip available each afternoon; enjoyed relaxing in courtyard after exploring city; location of hotel is convenient to King St shopping, exploring architecture of Charleston and a lot of wonderful restaurants nearby; breakfast was also included with our stay - scrambled eggs, bacon, toast, fruit, yogurt and cereal, as well as juice and coffee were provided. Rather than take to our room, we enjoyed our morning meal in the beautiful courtyard. An extra fee required for parking but we paid it to have guaranteed parking if we decided to do any driving during our stay. It was worth it. This hotel is a fabulous value and a hidden gem! Can't wait to return!
