Weekend getaway

This is a nice Hotel that is located just 5 minutes from the downtown area of Charleston. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The Hotel restaurant was moderately priced, the portions were fair and the food was good. It has a nice pool and a very nice outside sitting area, complete with outdoor fire pits.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Don't drive. Take the hotel shuttle--for $6, it'll drop you in the heart of downtown.

The mold room

The room had mold on the ceilings and throughout the bathroom. My wife is highly allergic to mold and mildew. The manager was called to inspect the room and he agreed that the room had mold in it where we showed him. He moved us to another room with a balcony and offered us a $50 credit. We thought we should been more compensated for our troubles. My wife's allergies are still bothering her from the mold in our room. Because of this I can't give a good rating for this so called four star hotel.

WONDERFUL STAY!

This hotel was wonderful. It is not located in the heart of the market and therefore the daily rate was affordable and rooms were larger than those found more conveniently located to the market. The bed was extremely comfortable and the breakfast was great, offering a variety and quality of foods.

Very nice place to spend time inside the hotel and close to the city amenities

The staff was professional and nice. We enjoyed our time in the hotel and it was close to other locations like the beach and downtown. We recommend it!
