great hotel, amazing city

best location, excellent and friendly staff, clean and well kept, comfortable beds. The breakfast, wine and cheese, turn-down service, warm cookies at night, and coffee and the paper outside your door each morning put this hotel over the top. Our room had a working gas fire place and balcony overlooking the City Market. The only improvement, next time we will request a room on the other side overlooking the church. We stayed two nights on a short vacation from New York City, and found everything we wanted to do within walking distance. Charleston is a great town. We will be back.

French Quarter spoils us

After staying at French Quarter it is hard to stay anywhere else. The location is where you want to be in Charleston, the rooms spacious and bathrooms fabulous. Included Breakfast is amazing with loads of choices and everything fresh. Lots of organic products which was a nice touch. Wine and cheese later in the day along with cookies and milk before bed. Welcome Champagne on arrival. Just the perfect hotel and service very accomplished.

Great Charleston Experience

We met some friends there for Christmas, and it was great! The customer service, amenities, location, etc. were excellent, and when we go back to Charleston, I'm sure we'll stay here again. Easy walking distance to a plethora of historical sites and shopping, and right next to Market Street. We can't wait to come back!
