We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in downtown Charleston because it is close to the Charleston City Marina where our granddaughter is living on a boat with a friend who also goes to the College of Charleston.
We found the location convenient and the rooms very comfortable. Other than wishing the bathroom lighting was a little brighter, we were totally pleased with our large room and the comfortable beds. But most of all we were impressed with the friendliness of the staff. Collectively they made us feel welcome with their attentiveness and their smiling faces.
When we first arrived and were trying to find our way around, we were helped by Charles who was so friendly and who went out of his way to find bottled water for my wife. At breakfast the next morning we met Mike who was preparing tables for the breakfast crowd. Again, it was his smile that impressed us and his interest in making sure everything was right for us. It was nice to see the manager, Harrison, working right along with his staff in cleaning tables and waiting on the breakfasting guests.
With the combination of very comfortable rooms, a great breakfast and all those smiling faces, we will certainly return to the Holiday Inn Express Downtown when we next visit Charleston.
