This is the first review I have written on TripAdvisor, although I have used TripAdvisor for advice many times. This was our first trip into Charleston and I reviewed many hotels before deciding on this one. So many of the previous reviews seem to get this hotel spot on (good and bad). First of all, I have seen complaints regarding the musty smell. Our initial room was on the 3rd floor, and within 1 minute of being in the room, we were back at the front desk asking for a different room. It was incredibly musty smelling and "turning on the AC" as the front desk suggested only seemed to make it worse, as the air coming out of the AC had a strong odor as well. We were given a room on the 5th floor in the "newer section" of the hotel, and while it wasn't perfect, it was SO much better than the initial room. Needless to say, that is not the way you want to start your vacation! The positives from this hotel start with the concierge, Kevin McQuade. He not only stayed beyond his normal work hours to give us A+ service, but suggested many things that were perfect for our family. Our plantation visit, Barrier Island Eco Tour, as well as neighborhoods and quaint alleys he suggested to see gave us a feel for the real Charleston. The hotel itself is withing walking distance to so many different attractions in all areas that it proved to be a wonderful home base. One more positive to note, is that we also had quick, friendly service from the bistro and bar areas. All in all, a good stay, just not great due to the room issues.
