Charleston Escape

Great lazy weekend, wandering around town absorbing its history and atmosphere, and trying out many of the excellent and varied restaurant options. Hotel staff were incredibly welcoming and helpful. Hotel itself was charming, comfortable and well located (although a bit of a walk to the hub of restaurants and shops). Comfortable beds. Fabulous bathrooms. My only mini complaint was the rather loud footsteps from the room above that woke me late in the night and early the following morning. Its a period building with wooden floors so not that surprising, however, a few more, strategically located rugs might help!

Great Week-end Getaway

The hotel is a historic landmark beautifully set in the heard of old town Charleston just a couple blocks away from all the restaurants, shops, and museums. The elegance of the mansion, extraordinary rooms, complimentary breakfast, drinks, and friendly staff, made this a fantastic and relaxing week-end getaway. My wife and I were very pleased.
