Great Romantic getaway

This location is great. It is close to ALL the things that make Downtown Charleston great - restaurants, the Open Air Market and the historic waterfront. A late afternoon carriage ride is a must.

Not quite up to our expectations.

For the cost, $500 a night, my wife and I would have expected more. The hotel has no pool, or restaurant and bar. The view we had was an electric generating plant for the hotel. The amenities included breakfast, a wine and cheese and a cookies and milk at 9pm. Although very nice, for $500 a night?

Great location low on amenities

No pool, gym or hot tub...staff is great but, be careful to request harbourviewi or they stick you in the back over looking electric lines.

View of Electric transformers

Horrible view of electric transformers for $400 a night. This was extremely disappointing experience. I may never book with you again because of it. The vaunted cookies and milk at night were no better than grocery store cookies. The free breakfast, while nicely served on the roofdeck, is quite limited and more on the continental side. Certainly not a hot breakfast. Staff was supercilious and condescending. not helpful when i inquired about rental car. Sent me off on my own and did not help. Room was entirely mediocre.We also stayed a night at the Vendue Inn, which by conrast was spectacular and the staff far nicer and friendlier. I would never return to this place. SO DISAPPOINTED with hotel and with you for this horrible horrible room at anoutrageous rate for a dumpy view and rather ordinary everything else, other than a great location.

OH WOW! PERFECT VACATION SPOT!

This will go down as my best vacation spot ever. The hotel and staff was absolutely wonderful. I could not have asked for a more perfect time. Charleston is a beautiful city, the people are very friendly and don't treat you like tourists! The hotel met every need and provided us with a wonderful experience. Our tour guides were great, food was awesome, and the atmosphere was magnificent. Thank you for a perfect vacation.
