Best hotel in town

This hotel is in the perfect location. To one side you have the Charleston Museum and King Street and all the shops, restaurants, music,etc. To the other side you are STEPS away from the water, the market, the carriage rides, more restaurants, art galleries, and more. The decor is amazing, breakfast and happy hour in the roof top just tops it off. Can't get any better!

Great Location

I had a great time at The Andrew Pickney. It was a great location close to all the places that I wanted to see. The view was great especially the roof top restaurant. I took my boyfriend and we enjoyed ourselves and were looking forward to coming back.

Wonderful location and filling breakfast

A great place to stay. We parked the car and it never moved until we left Charleston. Breakfast on the terrace saved us money from eating out every morning. This is a comfortable place to stay. It is welcoming and more casual than others like Frances Marion.

Very nice bed and breakfast inn

We really enjoyed our stay at the Andrew Pinckney Inn. The rooms had been recently redecorated and were very tastefully done. The beds were comfortable, and our room was spacious. There was some street noise from the restaurant nearby but otherwise the inn itself with quiet. The staff was very friendly and helpful in the lobby, and we liked the beverage station with lemonade, coffee and cookies in the afternoon. It was nice to have the continental breakfast on the rooftop pation as well. The location was also very convenient to many attractions.

Very nice stay plus location, location

Great staff, clean, comfortable room, tasty continental breakfast for free. Plus the location is fantastic: right in middle of historic district with hundreds of museums, art galleries, restaurants and curiosity shops within easy walking distance. Don't bother with a car. C-town is a great walking town and The Pinckney is a super home base.

Fantastic Fun in Charleston

The Andrew Pinckney Inn was very quaint and nicely decorated and clean. The British Colonial furniture was so tasteful, and I felt like I was in a much more expensive hotel. We enjoyed the cookies and tea in the afternoon. On the deck where a daily continental breakfast is served, we went with our glasses of wine to play Scrabble and enjoy the late afternoon breeze. The Inn is so convenient to everything that we didn't even need a car. I look forward to visiting again.

The horse and carriage tours is just down the block as well as the market where local crafts are sold. Restaurants, coffee shops and pubs galore are all within walking distance. Shopping is all around the hotel-- from art galleries to The Pottery Barn.

Great experience

The Albert Pinckney Inn has a great location and is reasonably priced. Having visited Charleston several times and staying in chain hotels on previous visits, this is by far the best bang for the buck. It is in the middle of historic Charleston and convienent to all of the local restaurants. The room was quite large and very clean with nice furnishing including granite topped bath fixtures. We enjoyed the roof-top contential breakfast and especially the warm cookies and lemonade each hot afternoon.

Location, location, location

The ltocation of this Inn is excellent. Close to a number of excellent restaurants and shopping. Easy walking distance to a numberio of historical homes. The hotel staff was very helpful and they maintain a nice restaurant menu book. Their continental breakfast is more than adequate. The room was tastefully decorated, like the crown molding and plantation shutters. 24$ taxi to airport.

Great location and value

This hotel was a very good value for downtown Charleston. It was in a good location where you are able to park your car upon check-in and leave it there until you check out. We walked everywhere that we wanted to go. Also great dining that is easily within walking distance. The carriage companies were close too. The hotel itself was very nice, the bed was pretty comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall a great place to stay!!
