We are thinking about staying at the Renaissance in Charleston. I know the general area - but only on a map. There's one post here on Tripadvisor saying it's in a dark alley - which concerns me a little. I also get the general sense it's better just to park the car and just walk - no problem with that. However, are there decent (actually, good!) restaurants nearby for dinner, ones within walking distance? Would we be safe walking from restaurant back to hotel? I wouldn't expect that we'd be out later than about 7:30. Any advice is appreciated!
