We stayed at The Meeting Street Inn three nights, Sept. 27 - 29, 2007. We paid something in the $230 to $240 (plus applicable taxes, etc.) range per night for a ground floor room with two Queen beds. That price also included a very nice continental breakfast (cereal, fruit, breads, buns, etc., ham bisquits, and typical beverages). Parking is available for hotel guests in a lot directly across Meeting Street that charged $12 per day for hotel guests (free out and back in as often as you want). The Meeting Street Inn is a small "European Style" hotel in an older Charleston-style building (which is nice if you're a first-time visitor). You're paying the premium room price for a central location -- lodging in the central historic area of Charleston does not come cheap.
The front desk staff could not have been nicer. They were first-class. On the negative side the hotel, particularly the outside patio area, and room were not quite as spic and span as you'd expect for the price. (Could that be intentional? Reflecting an "Old South" atmosphere? That's hard to tell.) In late Sept. the temperature in Charleston begins to be reasonable, so we could shut-off our noisy and excessively blowing room A.C. unit at night. I do not think that sleeping in the bed next to the A.C. would be pleasant with the A.C. on all night.
All said and done our experience was o.k., but on account of the room A.C. I'd probably not want to stay there in the heat of summer. I'd also look for a better price. The Meeting Street Inn itself may have suitable smaller rooms than ours, at better prices. Charleston also has a large number of well-located B & B's that ought to be better bargains.
