This is a great hotel in a great location. I visited Charleston with my best friend for four days. We were both astounded at the going room rates for hotels in this city and shocked that we were booking a Best Western for such high rates, but they were well worth it. Honestly, I feel like maybe they should downplay the Best Western connection because it conjures an image that is not representative of this hotel. The hotel is on its game in terms in décor, staffing, and amenities. The staff in all parts of the hotel are sharp, quick-witted, friendly, and informative (although one girl did give us completely inaccurate directions to St. Mary’s for mass at one point, but we made it – and if that is the worst of it, then that is a great record - haha). The hotel is newly-renovated and now has kind of a southern Restoration Hardware look, which we loved. There is free parking, which is wonderful, and $5 gym availability right around the corner. The gym is not fancy, but has great machines and classes. The guest rooms are spacious, clean, and very comfortable. We did not use the pool, but could see how it might be a nice break from shopping and site seeing during the warmer months. The coffee shop is simple, efficient, and inexpensive, although it is not a full-service coffee shop (flavored cappuccinos, etc), but it is more than enough for the average hotel guest (and there are a number of cafes right down the street if you want something more elaborate). We booked a double room and there was more than enough space for both of us to get ready, etc. Each room has its own thermostat and there is a dash for electronics on the tv console. As mentioned above, the location is fabulous. It is one block from shopping; two blocks from the markets; and right next to Charleston Place and the historic section of town. Taxis to/from the airport run around $30 and traffic does not appear to be a problem, which is refreshing. Overall, we absolutely would stay here again and definitely recommend it to others!
