Clean, quiet and comfortable in a convenient location

I stayed for just one night and everything ran as expected. My room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The hotel staff was nice and prestative.The location is very convenient, just a few steps of the main shopping área and with several restaurants in a short walking distance. It is also possible to walk from the hotel to some of the main tourist attractions. Would certainly stay again in a future visit to Charleston if the price keeps attractive.

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.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

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