“Wonderful surprise”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Not knowing what to expect we were thrilled with our stay in Charleston, and especially pleased with the Andrew Pinckney Inn. The decor draws from a Caribbean influence, the beds are fantastic, the rooftop breakfast balcony has a great view and you really feel like you've arrived in another place. The staff was extremely helpful with tours, restaurant suggestions and historical info. Charleston is like a cleaner, more friendly New Orleans with better food...really!

The Andrew Pinckney Inn is in a great location and serves a robust breakfast with different selections daily and my favorite - always fresh fruit. Everything - restaurants, shopping, historic are all within an easy walk. We never used our car during the long weekend. We were in newer building across the street from original inn. Clean, low noise, very comfortable and plenty of room. Our car was valet parked in lot directly behind the inn $20 day. Also, we were within a quick walk of TD Arena.

The staff are among the most friendly and helpful employees I have ever encountered in all my travels. We were three ladies and one of us became very ill. They could not do enough to help us in every way possible. We had to leave a day early and they were very efficient in helping us be on our way as quickly as possible.

The hotel is very well located, the breakfast on the rooftop was wonderful and the beds very comfy. I would definately recommend this hotel and hopefully I can return again under different circumstances.

Thankyou for all your help.

We could not have been more pleased with this hotel. Quaint and beautiful. Perfect setting for my 40th birthday getaway. The location is perfect. We parked our car in valet and did not need it the rest of the week. It is the middle of all the attractions but nestled away enough to be peaceful and quiet as well. The staff was amazing and was so helpful with the planning of each day. They sent us to the most delicious restaurants and tourist destinations and helped my husband with some special surprises too. We were treated like family all week and the staff knew us by name. The rooftop terrace overlooking the harbor was the perfect setting for breakfast each morning and the food selection was great as well. We had the perfect Charleston experience and we attribute such a great experience to this great hotel and its staff. Thanks to this experience, we will likely never stay in a chain hotel again. Thanks for an amazing getaway!

Thank you API staff for a most enjoyable stay. If you drive in to town and wonder where you would ever park to do anything, pick this hotel with valet service and walk everywhere. First take a Southern Polo carriage ride and you will be aware of what your interests are to persue the historic city later. The rooftop breakfast was awesome. Fabulous lunch or dinner at Magnolias, High Cotton, S.N.O.B. as well as others. The Spanglers from Lake of the Ozarks, MO

My wife and I stayed two nights at the API this past weekend and we could not have asked for a better hotel experience. Starting with the free upgrade to a Townhouse Suite when I booked to the super friendly and helpful staff, we were more than pleased. The hotel itself is located in the middle of all the Charleston activities and is extremely clean and well appointed with all the comforts you'll need. Loved the breakfast on the roof top!
I would gladly come back here on my next trip to Charleston and highly recommend it to anyone considering a stay here.

I had a wonderful stay at the Andrew Pinckney Inn during a mother/daughter trip to Charleston. The hotel is in an ideal location, right in the center of the Historic District; even without a car, we were able to travel all around town without issue at all. We stayed in the yellow portion of the hotel and the room was a nice size and very clean. The only issue with the room was that the WiFi was very slow and almost unusable. It was free, which was a nice touch, but unfortunately it was difficult to use. There was also a business center available to guests, and that was a helpful alternative.

The free breakfast was nice, and the rooftop eating area was perfect for warm days. A few suggestions/recommendations of the front desk were not so helpful, but overall the hotel staff was friendly and attentive.

It was a clean hotel in an ideal location, and I would certainly consider staying there again.
