We enjoyed our stay here very much. The hotel is directly in the center of the city and you can walk to all the interesting destinations in town. The service was fast and very friendly. We got a free map of the town and as we had a defect in the bathroom, it was quickly repaired. Only parking the car (directly near the hotel) was not free.

We booked a two-queen room with a city view, which was lovely. Room was spacious and clean. Bathroom was very small with only enough room to stand at the sink or sit down on the commode or step into the shower, all from the same spot in the room. Staff was friendly, as was everyone in Charleston. Hotel restaurant is handy, but nothing to write home about.

We loved this hotel. We loved the history of this hotel. The location was great right on King street, so u can literaly walk everywhere. There are tons of great restaurants near by, and the shopping too for ladies! their breakfast was pretty good too! The check in process was little bit underwhelmed, as it took quite sometime standing there to get our room. But overall we love our stay here. We definately will come back and stay there again!!

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful hotel. We were celebrating a special event and everyone from the moment we approached the hotel were superb, kind, knowledgeable, made every effort to ensure our comfort and happiness. Our room was wonderful- great view, love the period features in the room from color, molding, large windows, and furnishings. Our location was wonderful once our car was parked, we walked everyone. Both directions on King Street are full of sights, sounds, history and great food, and the Saturday market in the park was right out of our door. We could not have improved on anything- even the weather corporated!

Room Tip: Great view, our room was very quiet and comfortable

Hotel was beautiful and in the middle of the action! Loved the Swamp Fox restaurant on site. And a lovely park across the street and Sbux in lobby!
The location was perfect for walking everywhere as we didn’t have a car
