All the staff is courteous and delightful. Jack, who works in the restaurant, is so personable and eager to assist. The room was comfortable and spotless. As an added bonus, it overlooked the marina. I would definitely stay there on every visit.

Unbelievable service, great location, pay attention to finding the entrance, raise the sign. Great employees, soft atmosphere, views are superb. The shuttle service is welcome. Puts you in the right location. The concierge service was welcome and unexpected. This is a great spot for whatever your travel warrants.

This hotel has a good location on the waterfront, but you really can't walk anywhere. I have to say, the staff at this hotel are top notch. The front desk and restaurant staff are absolutely top notch. They are professional, courteous, attentive, and for the most part responsive. The cleaning staff at this hotel is why they received the low...

This is a very easy to find hotel, just off Hwy 17 just down Lockwood Dr. Plenty of parking for most any size vehicle, and it's free. While this hotel is not in the thick of old town, it's still a great location for anyone with a vehicle. Town is not far. The staff is extremely helpful and very pleasant....

This is a very nice hotel. Loved sitting on the top deck under a heater. It is a beautiful view of the marina and a nice bar. I am so glad they had a complimentary shuttle to the historic district because the traffic in Charleston is frightening when you don't know your way around. We had a very nice suite...

We had occasion to be in Charleston for medical appointments and wanted a hotel close to MUSC. We generally stay at Hilton, and we were not disappointed - this is now our new favorite hotel in Charleston! The staff is friendly, very well-trained and welcoming. We had one issue in our room and Ms. Hester from Guest Services went above...

Views of the Ashley River were exceptional. Boats all decorated for the holidays. Bar on the top floor was romantic and heated. Large TV for watching the Patriots win!! Lots of people enjoying the open restaurant.

Hotel is in ideal location for Folly Beach or Downtown Charleston. Hotel was clean and modern. Staff was extremely courteous and professional. Spoke with Taylor the evening before our stay to discuss my elderly parents room amenities and she went above and beyond to make sure they had the right room to suit their needs. She also made sure we...
