Needs some work

Would recommend Sun, Jan 5, 2014
Great location but no atmosphere. Lobby is very sterile. Could use a good bar and restaurant. Room was a little weirs as bathroom was literally next to the bed. You could open and close door while in bed. Beds were very comfortable and room was fairly spacious. I believe we were in a handicapped room because our door was double wide.

Great Stay

Would recommend Mon, Dec 30, 2013
Clean and comfortable. Incredibly helpful staff, especially the concierge, Jeff, who gave us great advice on several activities and provided guidance to excellent food!

Dining

Awesome bakery nearby with wonderful croissants and scones: Macaroon Boutique @ 45 John Street. Kudu on Vanderhorst makes a good Italian cappuccino, but their baked goods leave something to be desired.

Was a Disappointing Experience

Would not recommend Tue, Dec 24, 2013
Great location and staff, but the room was a disappointment. The decor was tired. There was a musky smell. The bathroom was very small and awkward. And, there was a long wait for elevator service.

Great Getaway

Would recommend Wed, Dec 18, 2013
The room was clean and quiet and had a wonderful view of the city, the harbor and the bridge. The bed was amazingly comfortable and the location was almost unbeatable.

Shopping hint

This hotel is just steps away from Charleston's premier shopping district. Great restaurants are also close by.

Great location, classy

Would recommend Wed, Dec 4, 2013
A reasonably-priced historical hotel in a great location. Directly across from a square that was beautifully decorated for Christmas, and right at all of the shopping and dining of King Street. We had an appointment at the medical university....a five minute straight shot down Calhoun Street. Much more enjoyable than the chains.

Dining

Fish is a good spot for seafood with a twist, just a few blocks down on King St.

Great with a pedigree

Would recommend Tue, Dec 3, 2013
Very nice and comfortable historic hotel. Weather was terrible, but we can't fault the hotel for that! Great staff and service. Very nicely updated rooms while keeping the historic feel intact. Arrived early and hotel graciously provided an upgraded room that was immediately available at no additional expense!

DON'T STAY ANYWHERE ELSE BUT HERE!!!!!

Would recommend Sun, Dec 1, 2013
Fantastic location next to park and King Street shopping and dining. Short distance to waterfront. Rooms were huge with 2 bath rooms and two large beds! Good views over looking Marion Park. Only bad thing, but it's an area thing, is paying for parking next door for $14/nite.

Southern Hospitality at its Best

Would recommend Mon, Nov 18, 2013
This lovely grand old hotel was a superb choice for us. We had the most enjoyable weekend which started the minute we arrived at the hotel. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and terrifically kind. Thanks to all who welcomed us to the wonderful city of Charleston.

Shopping hint

Pick up a city map and start your journey on King St. Do a loop and visit the old Market and shops all along the way. There were too many cute and fun shops to name. Enjoy!

Comfy stay in a great location

Would recommend Sun, Oct 13, 2013
We came to Charleston for a wedding. We stayed for 4 nights in this hotel. It was nothing too extravagant. The beds were very comfy and everything was clean. No fridge or microwave in the room, but the nice girls at the front counter microwaved our leftovers for us. When we came it was really hot and I think it would have been nice to stay at a hotel with a pool, but this was slightly better priced than those hotels. Location-wise it was great. It was extremely close to the shopping on King Street and the museums. We loved the Charleston museum. Definitely a comfortable stay. I slept like a rock.

Attractions

We loved the Charleston museum. Tons of history packed into a medium sized museum.
