It was excellent. Well located.

I was in Charleston, S.C. for a wedding. The hotel was three blocks away from the church. The bed was comfortable. The room was clean. The hotel was well located downtown. The breakfast was great. The patio area was beautiful. I will definitely recommend that my friends stay there.

Hampton Inn

The Hampton Inn Historic District has very convenient access just across the street to public transportation with routes taking one to most of the tourist areas of the peninsular area at very reasonable costs. Several excellent restaurants are within easy walking distance. The morning breakfast is complimentary and includes a nice variety. The option of eating out by the acjacent courtyard and pool area is especially attractive. The staff was friendly and helpful. The guests often included families with children and in my experience the youngsters were well behaved and watched after. I plan to return to this inn again on future trips to Charleston and I recommend it for all types of travelres

Sleeping in a converted rail warehouse..

The hotel is directly across the street from the Visitors Center and the Charleston Museum; it's no more than a mile's walk to the Battery.
