Not only is this property charming in its appearance, but it is clean, well appointed and has a great, friendly staff. The decor is modern and the bar/ breakfast area is very homey and accessible. The pool area and quaint courtyard is a lovely place to sit and relax near the fountain or swim and lay out by the pool.
I was first concerned about the location being at the edge of the historic downtown area, and I was alarmed at first with the gas station/ quick mart next door. The quick mart was actually handy to buy drinks and snacks to keep in the kitchen. The hotel is next door to the visitor center (which houses a museum and gift shop) where the tour trolleys pick up and next to the railroad museum that has a round house for trains (super cool to see- you can check it out without paying to get in). The hotel is also right next to the site of the bloodiest battle of the American Revolution and there is a memorial there. We were a 10 to 15 minute walk from river street. Yes, it got a bit tiring, but if you can handle walking it is great. We thought it helped burn some of the calories we took in with the over-abundance of southern food and drink( you can walk around with a cocktail in the historic district). If you don't want to walk, just take the DOT system or call for a golf cart or taxi.
We stayed in a suite. We had three people in our party and slept with a queen bed and a sleeper sofa. The queen mattress was very nice to sleep on, but the sofa was not. It was uneven and very difficult to sleep on. The bathroom was also difficult for three adults. The sink and mirror were outside of the toilet and shower area but it was right next to the queen bed. I think the room, as a suite, could have been roomier for three adults. The kitchen was very nice with a dishwasher and a full size refrigerator.
Hot breakfast was different each day with items such as biscuits and gravy, egg burritos, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, canadian bacon and potatoes sauteed with bell peppers and onions. Each morning they had standard continental breakfast items such as yogurt, granola, oatmeal, cereals, bagels, english muffins, bread, muffins. A waffle machine was available to make your own waffles, milk, juice, coffee, tea and hot cocoa. There were many places to sit inside the kitchen, lobby and outside by the pool.
