My husband I are planning to travel to Charleston May 4-8. We would love to stay at one of the more boutique-type hotels in the historic district. We have looked at Zero George and Charleston Place and both are within our budget; however, we can stay at the Hampton Inn Historic District and save nearly $500. We could of course spend this extra on food/art/etc. Is it truly worth it to spend the extra money on a non-franchised, name brand hotel? Or are we better off to spend our money on the fun stuff?
