Holiday Inn Charleston Riverview
Ranked #43 of 61 Hotels in Charleston
Reviewed August 28, 2012

This hotel is conveniently located from the Medical University of South Carolina(MUSC) Hospitals directly across the connecting bridge. Room was good but hot water was lacking, and could only get warm shower. No non slip strips in tub making shower slippery.No refrigerator in room. Restaurant on top floor is okay. Would stay here for a 1 nighter and the need to access the medical facilities.

Room Tip: Need to travel for restaurants since none in walking distance but fior a Waffle House.

MUSC is almost within walking distance to the hotel but our Free Shuttle makes it very easy to visit. Our Free Shuttle also helps with time and parking fees, if you were to drive. We have extra tub mats and refrigerators at the Front Desk that one of our porters would be happy to deliver upon request. We appreciate your business.

I was in charge of planning a reunion for a group of WWII Vets, and chose this hotel. Everyone in this grouped raved about their stay here. The view from the restaurant on the 15th floor is just breathtaking! The breakfast buffet was generous and the lunch buffet was nice as well. We worked with Brandy Olson on our event, and she was wonderful. She ensured that our group had everything we had asked for. Our banquet was held on the 15th floor so that we had the incredible views as a backdrop for our event. I requested a last minute change in set up, and we were immediately accommodated. Our waitress for the banquet, Mickey, was a gem. Our hospitality suite was spacious and nicely set for us each day.
Our sleeping room had ample space and was clean and quiet. Our room rates (group) were extremely reasonable and there were a lot of perks that came with staying here. We did not have to pay for parking or wi-fi, were offered a discount on any meals we had in the restaurant, and more! I would absolutely stay here again and plan an event at this hotel.

Room Tip: We requested a room away from the elevators and ice machine. We couldn't hear a peep from anywhe...

What a pleasant surprise at this Charleston property. Frequenting Holiday Inn's you tend to expect the same rooms and service. The staff and rooms at this Holiday Inn were exceptional. Josh greeted us with enthusiasm and helped us with all are needs. The rooms were very clean and the view was exceptional.

Room Tip: Get a higher floor and the High Spirits happy hour and food are fantastic.

Recently we my husband andI stayed at the holiday inn and it was much better than anything I could have imagined. When we checked in we were greeted with a glass of Champaine, the staff that checked us in were very knowlegable of the city and everything in it. All our questions were ask about what are the best places to dine and site see they told us about Cru CAfe which was fabulous. I ccould not have asked to eat at a better place. When we came back to the hotel we had some cocktail in the bar the staff there was just as wonderful.. .. I will tell all my friends about this place and they'er wonderful staff.

I had a reservation last week at this hotel through Expedia. When we arrived at about 6PM, they had only one very smelly smoking room available, despite my booking of a non smoking room. By the time we arrived there were no vacancies, and several people were turned away while I was in the lobby. Because my wife has a severe allergy to cigarette smoke, I immediately found another room nearby. Despite this, they refused to issue me a refund for the prepaid room, and continue to dispute this even today. There was clearly still great demand for a room, so it wasn't like they weren't going to sell the room within minutes.

I consider this to be a shoddy business practice, and also intend to bring this up with Expedia and the national office of Holiday inn. I would stay away from this place at all costs.

Thank you for your comments. When booking a reservation though a third party like Expedia, they guarantee a room but not a specific room type; this can be problematic especially on busy nights when the more desirable rooms have been reserved. We suggest booking your reservation on Holidayinn.com’s website they have the best rate guarantee and you can reserve the room that best fits your needs when traveling.

We spent $135 per night including taxes, etc. Great views right on the river, get a room on a higher floor. Was clean and quiet. The front desk people were very helpful and accommodating. One of the front desk people offered us free tickets to the PGA at Kiawah for any day we would like. You can get downtown in 5 minutes. We did not eat here but go up to the top and have a drink and enjoy the gorgeous views. Free parking in their lot. Basic room with 2 queens, bathroom was fine. Would stay here again.

Happy to hear you and your family had a wonderful trip to Charleston. You are correct the views from the top of the hotel are amazing especially while you enjoy an adult beverage. Free parking and the Free shuttle to downtown are wonderful perks! – Thanks for your comments.

My boyfriend and I were looking for a place to stay in Charleston that was cheaper than downtown but still close to all the attractions. This place really hit the spot!!!! Upon arrival there was a man handing out glasses of champagne (it actually worked out very well since my boyfriend proposed to me later that evening.) The room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. However the bathroom was a bit tight but I think that had a lot to do with the shape of the hotel being round. The restaurant on the top floor was wonderful and the breakfast buffet was pretty good and the view from up there was amazing. We will be visiting Charleston again soon and will most definately be staying here again.
