Thank you all for your advice. We are in SC for 3 nights. The first night will be in Charleston and the next two nights in Myrtle Beach where my daughter lives. I've been lurking on the MB forumm for the past couple of weeks and haven't found any hotel there that people rave about like the Mills House in Charleston. With that in mind, I'm now leaning toward the Mills House for it's charm. If it's only slightly less convenient and centrally located than the Doubletree, we can definitely handle that. But we plan to be out late at night -assuming we can find a casual lively restaurant/bar on a Monday night. We'll stick together, and we wouldn't wander off the beaten path at night. So, now I'm wondering if there's any ngihtlife near the Mills House, and if not, would it be safe for 3 women walking back to the Mills House late at night, or would taking a taxi be an option. Thanks again for your advice. I promise to stop asking questions after this.
