Holiday Inn Charleston Riverview

Reviewed September 10, 2012

I stayed here for three nights while in town on business. I would probably only give this hotel 3 stars if not for the great service from the front desk and restaurant staff. My room was average to small in size and really in need of a renovation. The a/c is one of those noisy units by the window and it seemed to always be a little too warm or a little too cold in the room. Those were the only nagative points that I found.

On the positive side, the hotel is in a great location. It is convenient to downtown, the airport, and James Island where I was working. The hotel offers a free shuttle to several attractions downtown. I ate dinner in the hotel restaurant one night and it was very good. The restaurant is on the 14th floor and has an amazing view of the river and surrounding area. There is plenty of free parking and the in-room wifi worked great. At $99 a night, even with the negatives I thought it was a good value and would stay again.

Hi,

Thanks for your review! Our property celebrated 42 years this past March but we did go through a full renovation in 2011...so we are always doing our best to stay on top of hotel maintenance. I apologize for your issues with the air conditioner and will follow up to make sure the issue is resolved. I am happy to hear the staff was friendly and accommodating and I’m glad you enjoyed our wonderful restaurant atop of the hotel. It is the best view in town, for sure!

Thank you for your business and please let us know if we can be of service in the future.

Jeremy McCauley

I stayed here for 2 nights in Charleston. It worked out great because it is within close driving distance to Folly Beach, the French quarter and downtown Charleston where all the museums, shops, and galleries are located. The hotel had a restaurant on the top floor as well as a pool on the 3rd floor. The hotel was very clean and comfortable to stay. They provided us with plenty of towels and toiletries and even had bathroom accessories available if needed in case you forget something at home.

Thanks for your business! Our location is unique, because we are close to all the popular destinations in Charleston. Our Housekeeping staff works extremely hard to make sure the hotel is as clean and comfortable as it can be. Thanks for sharing your positive comments we hope to have you as a guest in the near future.

Great value only a short distance from the heart of Charleston. The rooms were clean and spacious. The breakfast buffet at the Riverview Restaurant was well worth the price and kids eat free!!! The hotel was very busy but the service was great. They offer a shuttle service to downtown Charleston and free parking for your vehicle.

Room Tip: Ask for a room above the 5th floor for a great view!!!

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.
