Location was right at Waterfront Park, one block off E Bay, 5 minutes to Market Street.......Just a very convenient location. Every staff member we encountered was pleasant and eager to make...

My new husband and I really enjoyed staying here for part of our honeymoon. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more accommodating. We had a great room on the 4th floor overlooking the harbor with a very nice bathroom and gas fireplace. The breakfasts brought to the room each morning were lovely and sufficient. We didn't take advantage of...

We would highly recommend. We were going on a cruise out of Charleston and decided to visit 2 days prior. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of historic downtown & many restaurants. The morning breakfast delivered to our room was delicious & the staff was wonderful. We will definitely be back!
