Very Clean, Great Staff,Nice room layout.Good parking.

The toilet in our room didn't properly flush the entire time we were there despite repeated plunging and work on it.

The hotel is tired and needs updating. Other than that the personal were great.

They were cleaning carpets with heavy chemical no fans in place and very noisy. Would not give me a different room or refund my money. It is described as riverview district hotel our view was the garbage can. Very unhappy with stay

The hotel was beyond my expectations! From the staff to the room everything was great! You could eat off the floor as the hotel and rooms were gleaming! Would stay there again next time to Charleston!

This hotel is relatively new and very well maintained. It's across the river from downtown Charleston, but it's easy to get to the downtown area. In fact, the hotel has shuttle service at night for the guests to get there and back. If you're visiting Charleston, I would recommend this hotel.

While this is a happening place with large numbers of activities none of them were quite right for us.

The room was verry clean it had and awsome view .. I loved the pool . Breakfast was delicious. Verry friendly staff

Everyone was friendly and helpful. Breakfast bar was exceptional.

I would like to say that this hotel was definitely perfect for our stay. It was in a great location close to downtown Charleston. There was also a shuttle free of charge that dropped us off so we could start our evening. The shuttle driver was very professional and accommodating. As well, the hotel social hour which included complimentary unlimited red, white, and rose wine, beer and tasty snacks was defintely a great addition to the stay. The bedrroom apartment style room was very comfortable as well as the plush soft bed. I will defitely stay here again when I visit Charleston if I have the chance. Thank you all for a great job.

Large room with kitchen. Very clean, could use a little updating but nothing major. Great free breakfast every morning, so that was a plus! Very close to the center of Charleston.

Overall good experience. Staff was very helpful, offered a quieter room after first placing us right next to the elevator. Room was very clean, comfortable. Breakfast buffet was outstanding. Location was close to the Battery, old slave market. Riverview is a misnomer in their title, however, since they admitted they are not close enough to the river to have a view of the water. Good value compared to other hotels in this area.

Rooms were very clean and nice. Very short drive into downtown.

Would definetely stay here again. Hotel is not in an ideal location but the shuttel service to town is excellent. Hotel staff was very attentive and the room was clean and comfortable.

This was our first visit to Charleston and we loved it. The hotel's downtown billing was not quite accurate, but with the evening shuttle, we didn't mind being a outside the downtown area. The suite was cramped with our golden retriever and lots of luggage but clean and comfortable. Staffers were charming and helpful and even nice to the dog. The refund of the doggie deposit was a nice surprise. Breakfast was good. We didn't partake of free dinner with all the fabulous restaurant choices in town, but noted enticing menus (especially appreciated the local veggie menu). We're big walkers and would have liked safe places to walk the dog besides the parking lot.

Was well worth the money,staff was very freindly an helpful.Location was nice,jus a short drive over bridge to downtown.Was great for a family get away.
