Very Nice!

Would recommend Fri, Aug 23, 2013
This hotel is great! The location is the best. The restaurant at the hotel wasn't too great but there are SO many others to choose from close by. The rooms are small but have everything you would need. Free wi-fi which is rare. There was a bit of an odor in the room but nothing that would cause me to complain or not want to stay here again. Price is reasonable.

Dining

There are many wonderful restaurants in the area. Too many to waste a meal at Swamp Fox. Skip it and explore the others in town.

Birthday Trip

Would recommend Fri, Aug 2, 2013
This hotel had a lot of character. For the type of hotel, it was near perfect. Having had the opportunity to read reviews prior to visiting, the size of the bathroom was not a surprised. Yes, it was tiny, but who plans to stay in there all day?! The location was perfect and the staff was especially friendly and helpful. We will definitely book a room the next time we visit the area.

Dining

Virginia's has the BEST breakfast!! Andolinis has the BEST pizza...it's a must visit!!

Not as I Expected

Would not recommend Mon, Jul 8, 2013
Other than location and high class lobby area, I didn't see anything more than a basic $80 hotels to impress me, with close to $400 a night you expect cleaner shower, a refrigerator, etc...

it's old folks!

Would not recommend Mon, Jul 8, 2013
Great location but the hotel is very old and needs updating. The elevators took forever and every morning would stop at every floor even though it was full. The bathrooms were tiny and the carpet very old.

Not a great experience.

Would not recommend Mon, Jul 1, 2013
The dresser was not situated correctly and had a drawer that stuck out, ready to hit a shin. The air conditioner blew right on the bed. The room temperature was either too hot or too cold. If there was a way to make a nice cool surrounding temperature, we did not find it. There was only one or two working elevators (out of 3) at any given time. Cost twice what we spent at other hotels in the city and yet was the worst stay we experienced. And the others served a free hot breakfast!

a getaway retreat in style

Would recommend Thu, May 30, 2013
comfort, ambiance, charm and the perfect location for anything you want to experience in downtown charleston. we loved it all!

Money saver

we used the trolleys to get anyplace we needed to go downtown. no bother with trying to find parking spaces or worry about where the nearest parking garage was, just hop on one of the two trolleys and you can go anyplace you want downtown
