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.

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!

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.

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!!
