My husband and I stayed here for our (rather belated) honeymoon, and it was absolutely amazing. Charleston is a wonderful city, and Two Meeting Street is THE place to stay; especially if you are looking for someplace welcoming, cozy, romantic, and absolutely beautiful.
We stayed in December, and the Inn was beautifully decorated for Christmas; we were absolutely blown away when we drove up. In addition, the staff made sure we were absolutely pampered from the moment we walked in the door until after we had checked out! When we first walked in the door, we were astonished not only by the beauty of the Inn, but also the friendliness of the staff, who immediately offered us something to drink, and gave us a tour of the Inn. Seeing as it was chilly outside, we opted for the mulled cider with wine, and it was fantastic!
It rained the second day of our trip, but this was no problem, as the staff had already made it a point to show us where the umbrellas were, so we each grabbed an umbrella and we were off! We made certain to get back to the Inn in time for tea, and were not disappointed in the least! Incidentally, the first night we were there, we called to let them know we would be checking in a little bit late, and they extended their afternoon tea so that we would have some goodies to eat when we got in.
Additionally, my husband arranged for flowers, champagne, and sweets to be in our room on the second night - the sweets dish was quite generous, and included white chocolate fudge, chocolate sherry bars, and chocolate covered strawberries.
The people at Two Meeting Street could not have been more helpful, friendly, or welcoming - we were absolutely blown away by the service, and the eagerness to help us and make sure our stay was perfect. I cannot recommend this place highly enough, and look forward to staying again in the future!
The only thing to note is that the parking is not off-street - but if you park on the side of the street that lines the park, it is free and unlimited in duration. This isn't a complaint, just an fyi for those lucky enough to be staying at the Inn! :)
