With a lower price point than historic Charleston, plus no parking fees and a shuttle for guests, this funny round hotel is a great option. The rooms and amenities are basic but the breakfast buffet was a treat - excellent choices (eggs, meats, cereal, pastry, oatmeal,

I chose this hotel for the view. We requested the top floor with a view. We did get what we asked for. The view was beautiful. Hotel staff were all very friendly and welcoming. Our stay was smooth with Holiday Inn from check in to check out. It seems like an older hotel, not

Hello Regina, We recognize your time is valuable and appreciate the feedback you have provided on the Guest Satisfaction Survey. We are grateful that the friendliness of our staff was recognized. The Charleston Riverview Holiday Inn is a landmark hotel in Charleston and the restaurant offers spectacular views of the river. Also, Providing comfortable accommodations is always a goal so we are happy to know that you were pleased with the bedding. I have shared your feedback regarding the acoustics in room(s) with the adjoining door. It is indeed a common problem with most hotels but we are determined to find a solution in the very near future. In the interim, we are having door sweeps installed on both sides of the doors for both rooms in an effort to help alleviate the noise level between the two rooms. On behalf of the entire team at Charleston Riverview we sincerely apologize for falling short of not meeting your expectations. We truly appreciate your business. Kind Regards,

My friends and I planned a last minute trip to Charleston for a birthday celebration and booked this hotel. The outside looks a little rough but the inside is renovated except our bathroom tub. It had a broken rusted spot at the bottom of the tub but we figured they just javenha

My husband and I were traveling back home after visiting the Golden Isles with 52 other seniors. This was a great overnight stay. We were welcomed "Southern Hospitality Style" by the staff with fresh fruit flavored ice water. They couldn't do more for us to make our trip

When we arrived in the evening we were not notified in how breakfast worked. The check in was very quick and not much time to guide us. Also, there was a guy in the front that refused to give a suitcase cart to my husband because he was holding two for someone so my husband had

There are a LOT of restaurants in that part of Charleston, including a very nice sit-down restaurant called California Dreaming that's literally about a four-minute drive from the hotel. When I lived there, I recall it being open on Christmas- but I can't guarantee it now! In any case, even if it's closed, there's a nice collection of smaller "shopping center" restaurants close by in West Ashley (the side of the river that the hotel is on), and if push comes to shove, there are also an array of fast food places of which a few may be open as well. By the way, the Riverview's own restaurant will probably be open for guests, and it's pretty respectable too- particularly since it's one of the taller buildings in Charleston, and you get a great view of the Ashley side of the harbor from it as you dine!

Shuttle service has a schedule, which you must pay attention to. You can also drive your own car, if you think you will be out late.

Yes, and just fine. Large parking lot, and good elevator, when I was there
