The negative reviews for some people (those who have 0 tolerances, picky, natural whiners, etc) may be justified; HOWEVER, if you want an affordable place to stay in Charleston, don't mind a little walking (although the FREE shuttle goes right by the hotel and is only a 5-10 minute trip to downtown), and new, clean hotel, this is the place. As a Priority Platinum member, I had NO problems upgrading our room; all of the front desk people were VERY courteous, accommodating, extremely helpful in recommendations of restaurants, attractions. The free trolley was VERY convenient and eased the tension of having to drive into town, finding parking and PAYING for parking. It IS located "outside" the historic district, but presented NO problems for us
