We stayed at the Mills House for 4 nights last week. We've stayed at a couple of smaller Charleston hotels in the past, and though we had an overall good stay at the Mills House, we preferred the others.
The Mills House staff is courteous and helpful, and the lobby and restaurant are lovely.
Our room was renovated (725), and we appreciated the new feel to it, though it was small. The color scheme is fresh and cool, and the bed coverings/drapes are quite nice. Some reviewers have commented on the motel-type furniture, and I agree that the end tables, chest, and desk do lend themselves to that criticism, but the two wing back chairs in the room are nice; in fact, most rooms this size don't have two easy chairs, so that is a real plus. The closet is larger than most hotels offer, and the size of the vanity in the bathroom, though not large, is adequate--certainly better than the pedestal sinks that are offered in many newer hotels.
There are no bathrobes, which I find strange in a hotel of this caliber, and the lack of towel racks is also strange--only one double hook. There is no place to hang a hand towel. The bathroom is quite small, but despite the lack of towel racks, it is functional. The quality of the towels is good.
We had a difficult time getting our room cleaned each day. I really don't think management has hired enough people to service the rooms for a hotel of this size in a timely fashion.
The location of the hotel is perfect, and there are many fine restaurants close by. There is no need to use a car.
Charleston has many truly fine hotels. I'm glad we stayed at the Mills House because I've always been curious about it, but unless we attend another meeting there, we will stay elsewhere.
