Spent 3 days here for a conference and was quite comfortable here. Amenities are basic. For example, since there's a Starbucks downstairs the in room coffee is minimal. Friges are available for $10 a night if you need; there's a Harris Teeter within walking distance, and it's about a 10 minute walk to Riverfront park and the water. Charleston is flat, so it's a great walking city (only for the experienced in high heels, however; lots of uneven surfaces and cobblestones.
Staff was personable, friendly, very nice. Room was clean, lobby has lots of very nice nooks and crannies and places to cozy up.
The bed was quite comfortable and I liked that there was a range of pillow firmnesses to chose from. For an older hotel there were enough outlets for charging things in places where you could get to them. My room had a small loveseat which was quite handy. Bathroom was small but functional; strange toilet, though; flush handle sticking out parallel to where you sit.
