We stayed here during a girl's trip to Charleston for a few days. Lovely hotel and friendly staff. Very clean and comfortable Extra touch was a cocktail reception each evening during the week and a lovely breakfast buffet.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 6 January 2017

This hotel was absolutely beautiful, so historic. The valet was wonderful and recommended a fantastic restaurant. Check in was a breeze and the complimentary afternoon drinks were perfect, would have loved a frozen margarita, but the vodka sour was amazing. Traveling with son, daughter-in-law, 2 grandsons and husband here in Charleston to show off the sights to our children. They...

The hotel is in a historic building. The decor is kind of old. However, it is at a convenient location. The staff is great. Everyone I encountered is very nice. However, the major disappointment is the aggressive room charge. I have never been at a hotel who will run a credit card for the entire stay before checking in. Sure...

The staff at this hotel is very friendly and the location was in a nice part of town. The rooms were very spacious and clean. I experienced no problems during my stay. It is conveniently located to nearby free bus transit throughout Charleston.

To much construction noise. Started at 3:30 AM! No effect to shut them down. I would have been happy with the noise starting at 6:00 AM. One morning they unloaded a semi truck right outside our window. Fork trucks beeping every time they backup. Chains and come longs banging.

The hotel is beautiful. Very clean ... extra bonus to have it be a historical building. The staff was outstanding- Francis at the front desk, Pauline at the bar, and absolutely everyone in the restaurant. Wonderfully welcoming attitudes, very friendly, happy to give tourist advice. Hotel does a poor job of informing guests that the breakfast room is also a...

Very good location to be able to tour the city and near some of the best restaurants on N. King St. Breakfast was very good and everybody had a great time. Nice happy hour to relax and get ready for the evening festivities. They were able to accommodate our large family without any problems on this busy weekend
