My first stay at this hotel happened to coincide with the unusual 5” snowstorm in January 2018. Despite the challenges of extreme weather, the staff provided excellent service throughout. Southern hospitality still reigns here.

Exceptional hotel. Great location for experiencing the historic part of Charleston. The hotel staff was very friendly, accommodating and professional. The Bell Staff went over and above and gets high marks. Clean and comfortable rooms. Will plan a future stay at this location.
