Great location and service

My wife and I took a special anniversary trip and had a great time. The location is great, the room was lovely, and the hotel has some great extra touches - breakfast served in room on on their rooftop deck, wine and cheese receptions every afternoon, and milk and cookies in the evening.

Lots of top flight restaurants nearby, but one you might overlook is Pearlz Oyster Bar, which has a bit of a divey look but has a great raw bar and seafood.

sisters getaway

First time in Charleston and could not be more pleased with our hotel choice. We stayed in the older section which our room had great character with a brick wall and a very large bathroom and the most comfortable beds ever... Breakfast buffet was in the lobby or brought to you on the rooftop..and the wine and cheese hour allowed us to meet wonderful people...Charleston was a great city to visit with great restaurants and tours that will take you back in time and appreciate the history of this fabulous city. We especially loved the Charleston Tea Party private tour with Laura....

We did a photo tour of the city with an experienced photographer and then the Tea Party private tour with Laura, but there is still so so much to see. Give yourself time to see the old homes and churches as well.

Very nice, Great location!

The staff was very nice, and friendly. Hotel and rooms very clean. Great location, next to the water, easy walk to every where in downtown Charleston. The hotel goes the extra mile, with breakfast delivered to your room, in the afternoon there is cheese and wine,fresh baked cookies at 9pm, and there is always hot coffee, tea available in the lobby. (oh, yes, the M&M's plain and nut) it does not get much better then this.

So many nice places to eat (except MCcrady's one block south, west side of Eastbay, portions are very small, way over priced, bland and very forgettable food, very disappointed.)

The hotel is about 3 blocks from a outdoor market, that is wonderful. Great resturants, that match the amazing city. A lot if local shopping. The hotel is just off the harbor.
