On a Friday evening we went to the hotel's rooftop bar and sat outside on the patio. It being a very hot day, siting outside was more pleasant as the sun went down. We enjoyed an assortment of appetizers, the drinks and the service were good, and we will certainly return.

Very updated small hotel right off of King Street, the main shopping street downtown. Staff was young and pleasant. Breakfast from their on-site coffee shop is included and is delightful. Dianne was the woman who delivered breakfast each morning and could not have been more gracious. There is also complementary cheese at 5 PM as well as a rooftop bar... More

My fiancé and I stayed here in June and had an amazing experience. The staff and concierge were first class and extremely knowledgeable in helping us get set up with dinner and on the harbor cruise to Ft. Sumter. The room was amazing, and the rooftop restaurant/bar was really nice! Cant wait to come back!
