Ok but not great

The hotel was in a great location but the bathrooms were so tiny you had to practically step into the tub to close and open the bathroom door. The gym is also very small and offered limited equipment and hours. We had a nice time but weren't thrilled.

Location, location, location!!!

This is the second time I've stayed at this Double Tree this year. The location is perfect within downtown Charleston! You can walk to just about anywhere, and it's right on the historic Market with dozens of restaurants and shops within just two blocks. The bed was very comfortable! The hotel has a great courtyard in the middle, perfect for having a glass of wine before going out to dinner. The price is much more reasonable for downtown Charleston historic district than many of the other hotels and B&B's. I highly recommend this hotel!

Stay in Charleston

My wife went to Charleston to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had booked our stay at the Doubletree in the historic district and things could not have been better. The staff was great very friendly and helpful. We used their Valet for our car 25.00 a day well worth it cheaper than the lot across the street. The only downfall was that we found a pair of crusty dirty socks behind the drapes that housekeeping had missed, but the room was very clean. I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect location

If you want to be right in the heart of historic Charleston, you won't find a better hotel! Right next to the city market and countless restaurants, you could almost park your car and forget about it!

Unimpressed and Surprise! $25 to park!

Stayed here one night with my three teenage kids. We had a suite with two double beds and a pull out couch. Checked in around 10pm. No offer for hooking us up to the wifi. Had to call the desk from the room after reading confusing directions. Room was very tight. The loft area with two doubles barely had enough room for the beds. The sink was outside the bathroom. The shower/toilet area was very small. I've stayed in budget NYC hotels with larger bathrooms. The shower stall was fiberglass with dirty gap filled grout. The beds were nice and the room seemed pretty clean. The location is next to the market and convenient to most things. HOWEVER. You have to pay $25 to park your car for the night. Something NOT mentioned in the listing. Also, no breakfast is included. $14 continental or $18 full buffet. Given the choice, no I wouldn't stay here again.

"Toast" is a nice place for breakfast. Just a couple blocks away. Go to King Street for good shopping and food. It's a bit commercial but there are lots of choices. "Nicks" has awesome BBQ.

Overpriced.

Forced to valet your car at 22 dollars a day. The valet is understaffed with at least a ten minutes wait each time you wanted your car. Bathroom is substandard- reminded me of a motel 6. The only thing that saves this place is the great location.

Good location

Doubletree is located right in the heart of Charleston so you have access to literally everything right out of your front door. The carriage tours are right at the door, the market is across the street and a plethora of restaurants and shops are also right around the corner. The hotel staff was courteous and helpful and overall the hotel was clean and comfortable.
