Great one night stay

We booked this hotel last minute and though a little on the pricey side we thought the lobby and the whole ground floor (bar, sitting rooms and outdoor patio) were really beautiful. Our room was also very nice, clean and decorated in calming blue colors without being dated. The bathroom was small but as we were there for one night not a big deal. I saw a lot of negative reviews on this hotel but after staying there we were very pleased and definitely go back. I don't know if the hotel was recently upgraded or there is new management but regardless we had a great one night in a nice hotel in the heart of downtown Charleston!

Great Boutique-feeling hotel

Wonderful location. This is a great spot to walk to everything in historic downtown. Rooms were on the small side but clean and stylish. The building is gorgeous and seeped in Charleston charm. Staff were very nice as well.

Beautiful in downtown Charleston

This was my second time in Charleston and during my first trip I fell in love with this hotel just by walking through it. I was pleasantly surprised to find such a decent rate my second time through. Great staff. Beautiful/clean rooms and atmosphere. Will definitely be back!

housekeeping a problem

Beautiful lobby and restaurant, garden, marred by dirt on the louvered bathroom stall doors, failure of room staff to take dirty glasses, wipe the edge of the marble vanity, pick up garbage from previous guests tangled in the phone cord behind the can....Perfect location

Quaint little spot

The hotel was great and location was prime. The only issue was after trying to reach the concierge at the hotel several times in the two days we were there (during working hours) we were never able to reach anyone. Otherwise nice little spot !

Great long weekend

Stayed here for a long weekend in Charleston. Great downtown location allowed us to walk nearly everywhere in the city. Room was clean and comfortable. Concierge was friendly and helpful. They did mess up our room service order the morning of our departure, but other than that, it was a great stay.

The hotel is quite nice but it was the location in the center of this walking town that was great for us. We only got the car out of the parking garage on one occasion.

Great Location, Nice Staff

I stayed here for Memorial Weekend 2014. Very nice area, with quick access to shopping street (King Street) and quite a few nice places to eat right on Queen street, I recommend Poogans Porch and 82 Queen is okay food but great patio area. Hotel was very clean, nice soap and towels. We had 7th floor very quiet too. Beautiful fountain courtyard outside where you can eat and have drinks, and ample pool. Pool needs umbrellas for shade so you can lay out and not swelter. Valet and desk staff were very attentive. We paid $270 a night for a double room, and got charged $25 a night to valet the vehicle.

First time to Charleston

Location is great, could walk to basically everything in the historic district. Unfortunately, the staff was not consistent. "Maggie" and some of the bell hops were bright spots. Sadly, some of the people at the front desk were not very friendly. Bed had a rut in it. The climate control did not seem to work quite right. Minor noise issue with next room, I guess maybe from having a door connecting with our room. On the plus side, our room and bath size were good, and were comfortable and clean. Overall, I guess it was a good stay, but not ideal.

Relaxing getaway in the heart of Charleston's historic district

This hotel was in the perfect location for all or most of the best destinations in Charleston - historic houses, tours, resturants, shopping, etc. Beautifully kept in appearance and comfort. The staff are well informed and friendly. One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

You can easily walk to all the homes open for tour, get to other tour start sites (like ghost tours and Carriage rides), get to shopping at the City Market and King Street and walk to the Battery to relax by the water.
