We stayed here for a birthday weekend in Charleston. I love the restaurant and bar at the top...very nice. It was a difficult weekend to get reservations and we paid too much but that was all over Charleston. My sons had stayed there previously and like the location and they paid half as much. The hotel is clean with good...

We've stayed in Charleston a couple of times and always booked a room in downtown but thought we'd try something different this time. Having read some of the negative points about this hotel on Trip Advisor I did think about staying elsewhere for our 1 night stay in the Charleston area but decided that the river view aspect made it...

Fantastic staff. Rooms were very clean and nice. Room with a view was worth the extra fee. We also used a great and very reasonable traci service arranged by the hotel. The buffet breakfast was nice, rooftop restaurant had a fantastic view of the river and city.

We visited Mach 5-7, 2015. Every staff member went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful. From the view to the free shuttle, I would have to say that it is a great place to stay. The rooms were a little small, but very clean. The restaurant on top has a great breakfast buffet and is very reasonable. I...

I stayed here a few days in 2013 and came back for a few this year. The views are absolutely amazing! The staff are friendly, helpful, and helped make my stay enjoyable. (Traveling alone, to have someone take the time for a chat means a lot!) The uniqueness of the round building gives staying here an experience unlike other hotels....

Nice location on the river with pretty views. Hotel is old and it shows. Rooms are small and have low ceilings. The hallway has even lower ceilings giving a boxed in feeling. Balcony door was permanently sealed because the balcony was is such disrepair. Staff was friendly but the was only one person manning the desk and there was quite...

We arrived Sunday night and the room was dirty (long dark hairs in the bathtub among other things). The desk offered to move us and we moved to the room next door.

Absolutely loved the view. Got the top floor, and it was amazing! Staff was very nice; recognized me as a IHG member and got a late check out which was a plus. The view in the restaurant was beautiful as well. Will recommend anyone going to Charleston to stay here.
