Best Location for the Price

We were in Charleston to enjoy the Spoleto Festival. The restaurants were within walking distance that we chose for our one day stay. The valet parking was easy and attentive and was worth the parking fee. The front desk agent did not know that Cypress Restaurant did not serve lunch. We wasted a little time and dined at Magnolia's instead for lunch, which was great fun.

Delightful

The hotel staff was pleasant and accommodating - we were allowed to check into our room early, greeted by friendly faces, and treated with the utmost respect. The location is perfect, nestled within all the shops and restaurants and near the beautiful waterfront.
