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.

another good experience

I had another good experience with this hotel. Valet parking is priced competitively for the historic district. It is in a great location. No free continental breakfast and some rooms have you looking out your window at a brick wall, but being this close to the market was amazing.

Girls Charleston Getaway

Excellent. The entire Staff was the best I have experienced. Friendly, accommodating, went the extra step. Cannot beat the location. Everything was within walking distance. Only recommendation would have been to have had 2 Queen size beds in suite, rather than full-size. Other than that, no complaints!

Fantastic location

Rooms to small for a family. Limited closet space. Bathroom was so tiny that you did not have room to dry off after getting out of shower. Hot water was on a timer, so had to wash my hair in cold water. The room advertized that a micowave was in the room. The Micowave was located on the next floor. Had to take breakfast down to the next floor in my pjs to warm. The dining room did not open early enough each morning to get coffee. Would not recommend for a family because of the size of the bedroom, bath and lack of kitchen facilities. The staff, however, was very nice and helpful. You cannot beat the location. Within steps of major restaurants and shopping.

Great location for a girls weekend

Double tree is in the IDEAL location. A few friends went down to Charleston for the weekend. Our 1 room suites were all two stories, which though still a small footprint, enabled us to spread out a bit. The hotel is right in the center of all the stores and shopping. It was great.
