Renaissance Hotel - What's General Area Like?

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!

Not only are there "decent" restaurants in walking distance, there are FABULOUS ones!! Most of the restaurants that you see suggested often on the Charleston forum are within walking distance.

Walking will be fine, I wouldn't think you would encounter any problems, even much later in the evening.

I have stayed there many times and have never had to use my car after check in, nor have I used a taxi. You can walk everywhere and I felt safe walking back to the hotel.
