Visiting Junior (JR) is always a must when visiting Charleston. We have been coming here for years and you can always count on Junior for the best bar service. As Tennessee Vol fans we don't hold it against Junior for being a USC fan. Always enjoys talking football.

We recently stayed for 2 nights and can't say enough about this hotel. Extremely clean, excellent staff and within walking distance to everything. A beautiful entrance that really made a statement!

Pros: Property is extremely well kept and the furnishings are plush and ornate although our room had a smell; almost sulphuric. Anyway, we didn't say anything about that because it wasn't overbearing. Cons: Suzanne (from NY) at checkin - could be a better experience for guests if a bit more pleasant/positive and if she made you feel good about staying... More

Hotel was absolutely beautiful. The rooms were very nice and clean. All hotel staff extremely nice. The restaurant staff and rooftop staff were not as nice. We had all our meals on site. Food was excellent, but the service was lacking.
