We had tried to book a room in the downtown area to take a Carnival cruise, but none were available at a reasonable price. We found this property, and took advantage of their snooze and cruise deal. We arrived late on the night before sailing, and were quickly checked in to our room. The following morning, we had plenty of time to have breakfast, and get our luggage together for the shuttle that picked us up. The shuttle cost was included in the room price, as was parking for our car. On the trip to the dock, the shuttle driver went over what we could expect on the embarkation process, so we had no surprises when we arrived at the dock. On the return trip home, the driver picked us up within 15 minutes of our debarkation. He had told us in advance where to meet him once we were off the ship, and it went perfectly. We were back at the Hampton around 10:00 AM, and were never rushed.
We had planned to stay again at the hotel, as we wanted to do some sightseeing in Charleston. The manager was aware we were staying with them again, and was gracious enough to allow us to do an early check in, taking our bags on up to our room, so we could get out and tour the town. They may not be able to do that for everyone, but it sure made our day easier, and was very much appreciated.
One bonus: there is a CVS pharmacy in the same location for last minute needs.
