“Top of the line”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

This is a luxury hotel and makes no pretense otherwise. But it isn't snobby.

All of the people, doormen, bellmen, desk clerks, housekeepers and waitstaff, actually listen to you. They try to solve whatever issue you have as if you were family, and they give you their full attention. They show so much empathy that it is easy to forget the gratuity they deserve. (Don't overlook that. These people actually give that extra service tips were intended to reward.)

I had a room on the club level. I didn't know it earlier but it costs about $100 extra. For some people it is worthwhile. There is a free breakfast buffet, afternoon tea, and early evening cocktail party. They serve champagne and other beverages at each of these, so you might save enough on your bar tab to pay the extra cost.

I am just a small town man from Colorado, so take this with a grain of salt, but this is the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: You should try the club level. If your hotel is just a place to change and sleep, Day's Inn...

We spent a glorious long week end at Charleston Place for my mother's 80th birthday and my husband's 55th birthday. We stayed on the Club Floor of the hotel and the service could not have been better. Rick could not have been more helpful in arranging special activities for the family. I would highly recommend the hotel for anyone wanting the ultimate leisure experience. We would all go back in a heart beat.

We enjoyed our stay immensely!it is located in the middle of Charleston. All the shopping and great restaurants are within 2 blocks. It is across from the Market too. It is in the middle of everything. The lobby bar was outstanding too. The charleston grill was the finest restaurant we ate at during our stay. Rooms were very nice and well appointed. We had a little balcony for the sounds of the city. All very nice. I highly recommend this hotel!

Location - Perfect, Hotel - Perfect. Although not inexpensive, the Charleston Place was the most welcoming hotel I have been in. The personal service was outstanding. You could tell that the employees of the hotel were actually happy to be there and happy to see you!!
A wonderful place to just sit and watch the people go by. You could easily stay alone if needed and feel comfortable. Wonderful rooftop pool to relax after a long day of walking, resting up for the wonderful restaurants in the hotel and nearby!!!!

Well located to visit market and historic district. Every one was very nice. It was not inexpensive. The shops in the hotel add to the experience. The free trolley stop made it easy to get around. The hotel is modern, but does and outstanding job of building like an old southern building.

First time to Charleston and three different people recommended this place. I can see why. Was upgraded from a very nice room to a very nice room. Beautiful hotel, awesome staff and the perfect location. Can't wait to come back.

We chose the Charleston Place Hotel because of its location but would return because of the wonderful service and ambiance at the hotel. Our room was immaculate ... we never saw the housekeeping staff... they were amazing at knowing when we were out and never intruded on our privacy. We stayed on the Concierge Level, which was totally worth it. The food was plentiful and delicious. They even managed to provide many Southern-inspired options. We never made it to Tea but the breakfast, appetizer, and dessert hours were all great. We would give the bell staff, concierge, reception staff and Thoroughbred tip-top marks! Also, the gym is GREAT! If you're traveling to Charleston, stay here!!

Room Tip: Our room looked over Market Street ... great view!
