Loved my stay here! The staff was very attentive to all of our needs. The decor is upscale and elegant with all the amenities while maintaining its old world charm. The Mills House is located right in the historic district so you can walk 80% of the places you need to visit. Not only will I recommend Mills House to my friends but I will definitely stay here again myself!

A wonderful atmosphere, genteel but with all the amenities, in a great downtown location, within walking distance of all attractions and restaurants in the downtown.

My wife and I love the Mills House. The rooms are great, it's close to a lot of things you want to see and do in historic Charleston. It's tough to beat the pool area and sun deck for reading, relaxing and cooling off. There's also a pleasant courtyard with a fountain where you can enjoy coffee or a drink while you reflect on the southern charm that this city has to offer.

Our stay at the Mills House was probably on eof the best hotel experiences I have had. The service was outstanding. When you arrive you are greeted with a smile and you feel as if they actually are happy that you are staying. This feeling continues on throughout the stay. The hotel is in walking distance of just about everything that you would want to see in downtown Charleston. I just can't say enugh good things about this place. I will always stay at the Mills House when I am in Charleston!

I love coming to Charleston for many reasons. High on the list of reasons is the Mills House Hotel. Ideally situated on Meeting Street and brimming with historical significance, this hotel is unbelievable. Don't let the Holiday Inn brand influence you, this is a 4-star hotel in every sense, from the doorman and concierge to the restaurant staff and front desk. This is one of my favorite hotels anywhere, and the fact that it happens to be in Charleston--a town that knows hospitality--makes it a must-see.

We stayed at this hotel for a friend's wedding, and the location was perfect! It is in a beautiful part of Charleston and very conveniently located for walking to restaurants, bars, shopping, etc. We valeted our car when we arrived (for $22) and didn't move it until we left.

Our room was rather small, but that is a limitation of staying in an older hotel. The bed was very comfortable and clean. The furnishings were a bit outdated, but fine. Some of the amenities that you expect at a high-end hotel were absent (bathrobes, nice toiletries, newer TV, mini-fridge), but the housekeeping was excellent and the room was fine considering we were hardly in it. It just wasn't too impressive.

The hotel lobby is very pretty, although it could be enhanced by a few small touches like fresh flowers (instead of dusty silk ones). The bellmen were not overly helpful and seemed to do the bare minimum. When we arrived, the guy offered to park the car but made no effort to help with our bags. Also, when we needed a cab later in the weekend, they simply suggested we call for one. At a nice hotel, they would do that for you. So everything seemed to fall just short of our expectations, but was still "nice enough."

The pool area is great and one of the strong suits of this hotel. Especially in the summer when it is quite hot in Charleston, it is really nice to have a pool to enjoy.

Overall, I would only stay here again if we could get a similar group rate ($179/night). Otherwise, at the normal rates, I'd say the Mills House is slightly overrated. If location is really important to you and you can live without some of the frills, you might really like this place. But if you're looking for a luxury hotel, the Mills House comes up short.
