We loved the location of this hotel. It is a short drive to the heart of downtown, but that made it easier to get out and explore the rest of the Charleston area.
First impressions: Property is modern and fairly new, it looks great. The valet / bell team are superb - it is nearly impossible to open your own door or touch your own luggage! Without being pushy or obtrusive, they are very helpful and professional.
The front desk clerks are great as well. They double as the concierge: they got us into one of the city's finest restaurants on a Saturday night with very little notice. We also several recommendations from them for other restaurants we tried.
Because the property is so new, there is lots of light and a nice modern decor throughout.
The hotel bar and restaurant is a nice surprise (for a Holiday Inn). It is a tapas (small plate) focus, with very creative and tasty options. Although, service was a bit slow late one night, overall we would dine there again.
