My husband and I stayed at the Residence Inn North Charleston from March 15, 2013 through March 17, 2013. We were in town for a wedding in Charleston. The hotel seems pretty new and the lobby and decor is beautiful and clean. Our check-in time literally was 5 minutes. We did not wait and he was extremely friendly. We stayed in room 315 which is right at the elevators and above the swimming pool. The room was really nice and clean. The kitchen was stocked with dishes and everything else you needed. I love that they had a full refrigerator because you will have leftovers from all the great eating spots in Charleston. The bed was comfortable and huge. My husband loved the swivel flat screen so he could watch March madness no matter where he was in the room. They have a hot breakfast in the mornings which was really good. We only had waffles and sausage but it was good. The location was perfect as the outlet mall was a few exits away. It is close enough to Charleston that you don't have to get in the middle of all that traffic. I would highly recommend this property. We really enjoyed our stay.
