Great location for shopping and dining.
Nicely decorated, comfortable rooms. his and her wardrobe closets, robes, slippers, comfortable beds, marble bathroom with great amenities.
Rooms were clean and I only heard noise from hallway not from other rooms.
Great customer service.
Nice pool area with bar grill at poolside. Retractable roof.
We stayed on the club level. Even though most of the food was snack size, there was enough variety to satisfy us. We did not eat out during our stay. Unlimited cocktails and beverages for most of the day 12p-10pm if you stay on club level. Bartender was pleasant and the servers as well.
There are high end shops on the 1st floor and what looks like great restaurants. King street is just out the side exit and the streets are lined with shopping.
Parking directly across a private driveway into hotel at $14 a day (easy access is a pro, price is a con, but I think almost standard in this area of Charleston)
heating/air unit worked not sure that the fan was working but the temp was easy to adjust
Ou room faced the courtyard , no street noise
An extra $15 a day for valet parking. Total of $29 . The parking lot is literally 30 feet away. Very
Nice hotel, but overpriced. Club level can run over $400 a night . Even with all the free food and drinks, it's not worth that much. It should include a nice dinner at one of their restaurants, unlimited water taxi pass, a spa treatment , carriage ride or free parking. I might feel better about the price. But, it was our anniversary so, we splurged.
Not much of a view, but that's might be due to location. I imagine the view would be better closer to the water.
Small cramped gym. Good equipment, just not enough room to work out. And not sure why it was designed so that you can only access the gym or pool through the spa where someone stops you and asks you to sign in. I mean really. Either require me to swipe my room key or leave me be.
Concierge was helpful, but despite my asking on three different occasions what the best way to get to the waterfront to catch the watertaxi or get on our cruise, no one told us that there is a FREE trolley that could take us there. There is bus stop across from the hotel on the Meeting Street and King street side, just look for the green CARTA signs. I was told that they run three different routes and they run until 9pm.
No free bottled water or fridge in rooms. Not even on club level.
