Reviewed January 20, 2013

Overall, I could not be happier with our stay at the Charleston Place. From making phone reservations to checkout, the service was top notch: friendly, professional, attentive,courteous,thoughtful,etc,etc,etc. We visited for an anniversary, and were met with champagne and a chocolate truffle cake. They included other small extras during our stay as well. The hotel itself is beautiful and very centrally located for visiting Charleston. You are within walking distance to restaurants, shopping, and the historic homes and sites of Charleston. Our room was very clean and spacious, and the bed was comfortable. The ONLY negative was that our room was an adjoining room, and noise traveled pretty easily from the adjacent room thru the common set of doors separating the rooms. A pretty small negative, considering that everyone at the Charleston Place was superb. While the hotel itself was beautiful, the staff from valet, bell service, front desk, to house keeping and the service they provided really made our stay outstanding. It is now our destination when we next visit Charleston. Very impressed! If feasible, stay on one of the Club Level floors to enjoy the amenities!

Room Tip: Club Level was great-take advantage of it if you can.

We stayed in August 2011, on the club level floors. Apart from feeling a little out of place (we're not normally staying at such hotels) we LOVED this hotel. Fabulous service everywhere. Only deducting points from the Spa - not impressed with the mani-pedi, loved the rest.

Room Tip: Choose the club level for added snacks, drinks and sitting rooms. We loved the convenience!

I called ahead,was told that the decorations were exceptional.They were really great, people came in from the street to take pictures.Location was ideal,pets are aloud very few hotels there allow them.the whole experience was just right.Not cheap,but for a treat it fits the bill. My dog even got a special treat.Shopping without leaving the Hotel was very nice.

Room Tip: Stay on the Club floors, costs more well worth it.

Writing this review 7 months after visiting The Charleston Place and it is still fresh and memorable in my mind. What a wonderful hotel. The staff went out of their way to make you feel like you were the only guests in their hotel. The bedding, bath, sitting room, was extremely comfortable. Their amenities (bath gels) are not run of the mill.... far superior to your other local hotels The room temperature was just right for the hottest June we were experiencing. The staff was curtious and attentive. And the Spa/Pool....oh my... my skin felt amazing, and my body refreshed after walking thru Charleston. I can not wait to go back, The city is just fascinating. Everyone was so pleasant with us....we befriended so many tour guides with our excitement about their city! The only situation we avoided were the "peddlers" for tickets to attractions. We did our homework, got information from the main tourist center for coupons...instead of being "roped" in for 'deals'. I know that people have to earn a living...but not for me..I like to pursue adventures on my own and listen to the local residents for their advice! But remember, some people are never satisfied with whatever the circumstance...but I honestly could not find a negative aspect of this hotel or city - at all. Amazing.

Room Tip: Ask for an Upgrade...suites are Wonderful. If you can register for the Club level...do it, it is so...

The lobby is beautiful as are the rooms. Try the club level ...you will be spoiled by the morning and evening food and beverage presentations. Indoor pool and spa area are first class. Hotel is in walking distance from most of the downtown historic sights.

What an outstanding hotel! Charming and elegant. It didn't hurt that we stayed over the Christmas holiday. The decor was so festive. The food, the room, the service, the location, but especially .... staying on the "Club" floor! We walked to everything, absorbed the history and ate at some of the most fabulous restaurants. The shops located right in the lobby of the hotel made it too easy to spend money. It was great! The employees could not have been more accommodating and friendly. Even with all the dogs. We didn't have one, and I was put off a little at first, but I got used to seeing them everywhere.

Room Tip: Stay on the 7th or 8th floor. They are the "Club" floors. Spacious rooms and they have th...

The entrance to the hotel was a bit hard to find as it is not on the main street. Valet parking was available for $29. Self park, which was only steps away was $14. Check in was very friendly and efficient. We asked for and received an upgrade for no additional charge. (I had purchased the room from LMT). The room was large, unfortunately the view was that of the parking structure. The bed was comfortable. The linens, window coverings and shower curtains were of beautiful fabrics in greys and yellows. The room had a large desk with 2 chairs, a love seat and coffee table. There was an amoire in place of a closet. The furniture was period. The bathroom was large with 2 sinks and a vanity with drawers - nice for storage. There was also a scale (not sure that is a plus while on vacation!), a magnifying mirror and Gilchrist and Soames toiletries. My only compliant was the shower head was not very good and was not accomodating to tall people. Turn down service was advertised but we never received it. The lobby was decorated for the holidays - and wow they did it right. There were several decorated trees and a huge train display. The hotel is located right in the heart of shopping, dining and bars. The service was outstanding. Would definitely stay here again.
