Great Hotel with a warm elegant Southern charm and an accomodating staff that make you feel welcome. The hotel is first rate, great location, the rooms are distributed in a very comfortable fashion, with complimentary coffee and delicious pastries on every floor. The Concierge on duty helped me with my suit that I needed for a wedding the next day,... More

Great views. Friendly service. Wonderful spot to have drinks with friends. High top tables with umbrellas and fairy lights made a fun atmosphere for conversation. We had only drinks, but a food menu is available.

The location, amenities, and staff were all exceptional. We were continually greeted by name by the attentive staff. Rooms were comfortable, clean and beautifully appointed. Both the rooftop bar and Grill 225 were exceptional. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the beautiful city of Charleston, SC.

Elegant accommodation, excellent service. The only downside was that just one elevator operated both days we were there. It had no ventilation making it rather uncomfortable since it was almost always full. It's one of the best values we've encountered.

This hotel is very nice. From the rooftop bar, to the rooms, to the lounge area downstairs. Probably one of the nicer places in Charleston.. and very conveniently located near multiple shopping and food destinations- all within walking distance. The hotel is a bit more pricey than I usually spend, but worth it if you are looking for a bit... More

I usually stay at the Vendue when I visit Charleston, which I love. That said, I thought I should try somewhere new. When I drove my car up to the valet, no one was there and you couldn't pull over because parked cars lined the street. East Bay Street only has one lane in each direction so I couldn't block...

This hotel is spotless and the staff goes out of their way to help in any way needed. It is hard to imagine there is a better hotel in town. Great room; Great roof top pool and bar; great staff; and the best location of any hotel in Charleston.
