Awesome Labor Day in Charleston

We travel extensively overseas but had never made it to South Carolina. Had a great trip. Excellent walking around city with all of the amenities. Wonderful bars. Stayed at Renaissance. Impecably maintained. Very helpful staff. The only downer was that we had booked a king room and they gave us a double. Told us that there was no King avaialble even though the reservation asked for a King. My wife and I have not slept in a double since college days. Also for whatever reason, the pool is surrounded by gravel, thus to walk to your chair you have to step over these painful pebbles. Dumb idea. In this day and and age I am sure they can come up with better surface. But overall I would highly recommend this hotel and the city.

CHARLESTON IN THE SPRING

we did the garden tour, many historic homes, favorite was Patriot's POINT and the dungeon. The hotel recommended an excellent transportation company ([...]); ANOTHER COMPANY CHARGED TWICE THE USUAL AMOUNT. Your site did not list a pool as an amenity, but there was a pool. This was our first Orbitz trip.

Great location

Location was the reason one would stay at this hotel and pay the price of a room at this hotel. Restaurant service was poor, food was not very good, and the price was outrageously expensive. Rooms were clean, but the view outside the windows was of a run down building next door.

Hotel is within 2 blocks of King Street where all of the well known shops exist. It is about a quarter of a mile to City Market, and about a mile to the port.

We enjoyed the difference.

We have always stayed in hotels on Market Street or further south. We enjoyed being in a different location and within easy walking distance of everything we wanted to see and do. I missed having a concierge available, but the front desk was accommodating. I wished the business center would put a sign up so people would utilize the free computer/internet no more than 30 minutes at a time. Still, I appreciate their having it there for us. Two with access to the internet would have been even better. Our room was very nice.

Both shopping and good dining were within a block. Also, a beautiful church within a block and only two blocks to the market area.
