The hotel is in a great location. Staff were very costumer oriented.

We loved the hotel and staff. They all were like famil. They were so accommodating. Great people and place!

The welcome cocktail and daily breakfast were amazing!

Best hotel stay ever. Best service from all the staff. Little details in the room was awesome and free drinks etc. I would never stay anywhere in Charleston but this hotel. Butler service was nice too! Great downtown location.

Staff went above and beyond so friendly helpful and genuine. Facilities impeccable , I could live in the room forever. Bed and robes luxurious. Lobby and rooms Decorated out of a decor magazine. Butler service and extras insane.

Impeccable service and a great location. We loved the room and the staff could not jave been more helpful. We'll definitely stay here again!

Great hotel. Amazing bathrooms. Fantastic location.

Outstanding, friendly staff. Great bar. Wonderful beds and great overall service. Great location. A little expensive but worth it. Great enviable.

We went to Charleston for my husbands 50th birthday. Just a little quite night and dinner with no kids. When we arrived we were greeted with complimentary cocktails, escorted to our rooms by our amazing butler Chuck who showed us everything we needed to know about our room plus a little history about the hotel. When we returned from dinner our bed had been turned down, a little night cap left from the bartender and an amazing bottle of champagne and sweet birthday card left for my husband. I didn’t request any of this for his birthday our amazing butler Chuck did it on his own to insure we enjoyed our stay. No doubt we will be returning and telling everyone we know to stay at the Spectator if you are going to Charleston. PS Don’t forget to as for Chuck!

I’ve been to many Charleston hotels and this is my favorite. The location is perfect. The rooms are perfectly decorated and the bathrooms are huge. Clearly the bathroom was designed with a woman in mind. Plenty of room for cosmetics and a double sink. The staff is so friendly. I highly recommend this hotel.

Hotel was regal, elegant and full of class! Bartenders were experienced and fun. Room was perfect with comfy beds. Definitely will be staying here whenever I visit charleston from here on

The minute we arrived I knew we'd enjoy our 4 nights at "The Spectator". Chic decor in the lobby and bar prepared us for a gracious comfortable double room with updated marble bathroom. Central location afforded 10 - 15 minute walk to the best restaurants on Queen, Market, East Bay and King streets. Will highly recommend to friends + return soon !

Great location, spacious rooms. Free in room breakfast was a nice perk.

hotel staff was wonderful, attentive, quick and friendly. location was perfect, could walk almost everywhere. actual hotel was beautiful, modern and small.
