not so great place to stay

The hotel smelled funny, like wet type of smell, air conditioner did not cool properly, could not get the temp cooler than 74 degrees, very small tv, in a very akward position. The location was ok.

Not too clean !

Great location, but the room was not very clean we saw dust on the walls requested to be cleaned...they didn't. Pricy for what you got. The included breakfast was very weak.

Great location

Hotel is in a great location for seeing all the sights in town, and staff is very friendly (not unique in Charleston). My room was comfortable, quiet but dated. Breakfast room is inadequate but they will deliver to the room. We were there on a very busy weekend and the price was way too high for what the hotel offers. I might stay again but only if other options are not available.

Anniversary Trip

Not our first stay. We were first put into a double room, instead of the King we reserved. That was easily fixed. The WiFi is included, but only worked 60% of the time. The biggest problem we had was the staff, with "Please do not disturb" sign hanging on the knob,knocking on our door to see if we needed anything, or, on the last day, three seperate events when the staff wanted to know if we were through with the room yet. We checked out early on the last day! This single issue will likely prevent me from staying there again. The continental breakfast was great, and the kitchen staff was great. Also, the parking was advertised on multiple sites as included. Well, it is included at the rate of $12/day billed to your room. Also, had to pay for the room in advance when making reservations. I will not do this again.

Decent historic hotel for the price

One must put a review in perspective when staying at an authentic historical hotel. Room was somewhat small, but clean and nicely furnished, period decor, Our room had a good view of King Street. Hotel is nice, but could use a little renovation. Located in the heart of many interesting areas of old Charleston. Staff very friendly, Dining area nice, service good. Parking lot spaces very small, lot crowded, shared by several other hotels. Hotel guest must absorb the daily parking fee, parking pass is billed through the hotel. Overall, Hotel is a good value if you want to stay at something other than an out of the box hotel. I would stay here again.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Free trolly service to large routes throughout the town. Get a schedule of the boarding stops from the hotel. Market tourist area is adjacent to hotel. Historical area is well within walkin distances.

Great Escape

Excellent location.Able to walk to all historic destinations and most restaurants. Was in town for Cooper River Bridge 10 K run. Parking in town was at a premium so having private parking at hotel was very nice. Room was cozy but very nice and very clean. Having option of having breakfast delivered to your room each morning is great and personal alternative. Hotel is tucked away privately in the city with gardens so it feels like a secret garden getaway.
