A magnificent view, good steaks and prime rib in the restaurant with wonderful service and pleasant decor. Rooms are a bit tired with mattresses coming apart but a pleasant quiet stay near the heart of the old city. Recommend highly for best bang for buck

My boyfriend and I stayed here for our first trip to Charleston this week. The location is great! The complimentary shuttle that the hotel offers runs every 2 hours. Since everything in downtown is in walking distance from the shuttle stops, I would suggest leaving the car behind because parking in Charleston is pretty pricey. The staff was very helpful... More

I really appreciated the free shuttle service to the historic district. It runs every 2 h from 7:30a- 9:30p. Also, the view from the top floor lounge was nice. However, just because you have an upper floor room, does not mean your view will be something you want to see. Ours' was a construction zone.

A+ guest service from the front door to the rooftop restaurant and lounge. Beautiful view of city and harbor from the dining room. We stayed on 14th floor west side could not see harbor but the sunset was awesome. Very close to MUSC. Definitely recommend.
