“great location, comfortable stay”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for three nights. The hotel is located by everything. We didn't rent a car and we walked to almost every location including restaurants, tours, and the boat dock. The hotel has so many comfortable touches. From the 24 dispenser of M&M's, breakfast where you choose, happy hour with wine and guitar on the upper patio, Tempurpedic mattresses, nice staff. Our room was had a King bed, free Wifi. I don't know if they had an exercise room because we walked so much around Charleston that we didn't need one. We would stay here again

Room Tip: our room was in a corner and pretty quiet. A few door slams, but otherwise great

My husband and I stayed here 2 years ago for our anniversary. The staff was attentive and helpful. The hotel is right next to the water and you can walk to all of the local attractions and to many restaurants. We loved the temper-pedic mattress too.The rooftop was nice too, we were able to eat breakfast up there and people watch.

Best location in downtown Charleston, intimate feel with very convenient valet parking. Rooms and property beautiful, but my car's view was lovely of the fountain and water while my room looked at an electric changing yard. Very clean, but average bathrooms. Fantastic rooftop view with great conversation or snuggling coaches where they also serve breakfast. Breakfast was okay with lots of choices, but nothing hotexcept drinks. Pastries so so. Nice and quiet. Enjoyed cookies at night.

Room Tip: Ask for a view room.

The location of this property with respect to historic Charleston is excellent. Service is friendly, housekeeping very good, mattresses are excellent! Rate also includes breakfast. Roof from the rooftop is excellent. Music on two nights on the rooftop.

Room Tip: Select a room with a view of the Harbor.

Front desk clerks was wonderful! They tried to make our check in as seamless as possible. The hotel is right by the water and in walking distance to all the attractions and restaurants in the area. Comfortable rooms with balcony, very sound proof.
Breakfast in the rooms, atrium or rooftop terrace was a nice treat!

This hotel is one of the best places we have stayed in in the U.S. The entire staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable, and the hotel is located within walking distance of everything we wanted to see and do. Outstanding!

Room Tip: We requested a Traditional Queen. The room was quiet, and we had a limited view of the Harbor.

The hotel is well appointed with friendly, helpful staff. Bruce reacted immediately to our one minor concern. Marcus was masterful in recommending great restaurants away from the tourist crowds. Sabrina was also very helpful. Afternoon tea, evening wine and cheese, late night cookies and milk in addition to several free breakfast choices delivered to our room and roof top venue were unexpected bonuses. Don't waste time looking at other hotels!

Room Tip: Our room was right next to the continental breakfast dining area and we didn't hear anything.
