Historic District vs. Ashley River

I will be visiting Charleston for the first time in March for a couple of days. Is the best choice for a hotel on the Ashley River for the view or the Historic District for convenience? I like the idea of being able to walk instead of drive so that would be my concern with staying on the Ashley River. I'm wondering which is my best bet with there really being no "plan" for this vacation...just going to show up and wing it totally!

Thanks!

You won;t be able to walk if you stay on the Ashley River. I'd forgo the water view and stay in a downtown hotel. Hotels in 29403 tend to be a little less expensive than 29401, but are still within easy walking distance of all the sites and fun!

Hope that helps!
