We stayed at this great Holiday Inn for three nights Oct. 15 -18 2013. We had a great room over looking the swimming pool area. It was so nice being able to open the glass door (3rd floor) for fresh air. The room was large, quite and very clean. The beds and pillows were wonderful. The front desk was fast to check us in and out. The nice sack with bottled water and Charleston chews was a nice touch for Honor members.
It was so nice being able to have a cup of tea or coffee any time of the day. Nice outdoor seating around the Hotel that was wonderful for a people watching outdoors and breakfast outside. The breakfast was very good having something different everyday. Carolyn, Elaine and Mike in the Breakfast area were great. Mike kept the area so clean even with the amount of people eating. Carolyn and Elaine keep the food stocked and clean for the full time of the breakfast being served. There were a lot of guest eating and they were right on top of it. Even as busy as they were, they would answer any question we had for them. Loved the personal touch everyone had was really appreciated.
The free Trolley is located just across the parking lot which was great. That really came in handy. Also parking was free which was very unusual. Take the Trolley and keep the car parked. It's hard getting around and finding a place to park. Watched some ladies from Colorado get a parking ticket. It was not cheap for parking over the 2 hour parking limit, $95.00 if I remember correctly. Take the trolley they are great. I highly recommend taking a City Tour with Charleston Tours. They pick you up at your hotel and give a really good tour for $22 each person. Our guide was really very good.
Be sure and tell anyone that asks where you are staying "It's not the "Round" one, its the other one". we were taken to the Round Holiday Inn by mistake. They are very close to one another.
