Stayed in this hotel with a friend for a few nights and it is right next to the harbor so it is a very nice location if you’re looking for fantastic views. It is not in the downtown area but there are Uber drivers out in Charleston and the rides are usually under $10 to get into the downtown area.... More

Great location and good staff. Bed linens are good quality. As with many high traffic hotels, the room we stayed in showed wear and tear that should be fixed. Tired carpeting. Nice room amenities. Great view of marina, good happy hour offers at bar

Beautiful location! But, Labor Day weekend-Saturday bartender was not too thrilled to help us. Bad first impression! very small pool. Monday morning staff did not show up for breakfast! There was one server who is normally there, and the cook who was also busing. Both were such kind people, but after waiting over 1 hour for our omelets to be... More

The views from this hotel are absolutely beautiful. I love the location of this property as it is less than 10 minutes from downtown Charleston but offers free parking which most hotels downtown do not offer. They also offer a shuttle to the downtown area so no need to drive your car downtown and search for parking. Most of the... More

This was the first time in Charleston I hadn't stayed on King or Meeting Street, so I definitely missed not being within close walking distance to shops/restaurants/activities. For the plus sides, the view of the harbor was nice and walking down and sitting by the boats at night was beautiful. The breakfast every morning downstairs was convenient. The room was... More

My wife and I stayed at this beautiful hotel on the Ashley River side of the peninsula holding the city center of Charleston. While the hotel is fairly central, pedestrian connections to the center of the City are poor. A hotel shuttle service helps improve this situation. The shuttle driver was very helpful.
