The hotel was impressive

I would like to say that this hotel was definitely perfect for our stay. It was in a great location close to downtown Charleston. There was also a shuttle free of charge that dropped us off so we could start our evening. The shuttle driver was very professional and accommodating. As well, the hotel social hour which included complimentary unlimited red, white, and rose wine, beer and tasty snacks was defintely a great addition to the stay. The bedrroom apartment style room was very comfortable as well as the plush soft bed. I will defitely stay here again when I visit Charleston if I have the chance. Thank you all for a great job.

Good hotel

Large room with kitchen. Very clean, could use a little updating but nothing major. Great free breakfast every morning, so that was a plus! Very close to the center of Charleston.

Riverview?

Overall good experience. Staff was very helpful, offered a quieter room after first placing us right next to the elevator. Room was very clean, comfortable. Breakfast buffet was outstanding. Location was close to the Battery, old slave market. Riverview is a misnomer in their title, however, since they admitted they are not close enough to the river to have a view of the water. Good value compared to other hotels in this area.

Not really downtown but fine.

This was our first visit to Charleston and we loved it. The hotel's downtown billing was not quite accurate, but with the evening shuttle, we didn't mind being a outside the downtown area. The suite was cramped with our golden retriever and lots of luggage but clean and comfortable. Staffers were charming and helpful and even nice to the dog. The refund of the doggie deposit was a nice surprise. Breakfast was good. We didn't partake of free dinner with all the fabulous restaurant choices in town, but noted enticing menus (especially appreciated the local veggie menu). We're big walkers and would have liked safe places to walk the dog besides the parking lot.
