I love City Loft Hotel. Not only is it in the quaint town of Beaufort close to restaurants, shopping, etc. but they have the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. I even tracked down the pillows (made locally) and bought some for myself.

I've been coming to Beaufort for quite some time and have always stayed at the chain hotels. On a whim I decided to check out the Loft for the first time. It was everything the other positive reviews say about it. It could easly be compared to an upscale bouteque hotel in downtown San Francisco.

We were really excited to go on vacation for our Anniversary and had many recommendations to stay here. Our stay was 6/6/14-6/8/14 The room was great and clean and the cookies and weather card were great additions. The coffee shop is also a great addition and it's not just your generic hotel coffee shop. They have homemade muffins, cookies, and great drinks and the staff is really friendly and accomodating.
I think the bathroom in room 101 is handicap accessible with no bathtub, but does have a very large open walk-in shower in it's place which is awesome. My only reason for the 4/5 review is that we didn't sleep a wink both nights which was so disappointing. There were guests staying there that were part of a wedding and were so loud/disruptive/drunk/obnoxious in front of all the doors Friday and Saturday night. On Friday night, I was about to call the front desk after this had gone on for some time and someone (not sure if it was management or another guest) told them to be quiet. Saturday, the same thing happened and once the larger crowd distributed, a few girls sat at the chairs in front of our room and had loud, dramatic conversations until about 3am. I was going to mention this to when I checked out, and it was, "Did you have any charges at the coffee shop?" -No "Did you partake in our house wine in your room?" -No Ok, you're all set. Have a safe trip. No mention of, "did you enjoy your stay?"
All in all, the location, room, bed, cleanliness, amenities were all great, but unfortunately, the people staying at our hotel kind of ruined it for us. Yes, we had a great time, but not restful. We have a 14 month old and were looking forward to R&R, not crazy drunk guests yelling outside of our room through the morning hours.

Thank you for taking the time to write a very detailed and candid review of your experience at City Loft. It is evident that we failed in our quest to quiet guests that affected your stay. Your review prompted a review of our internal policy as to the potential of a similar situation arising again. Having small children myself, I am keenly aware of the desire to get a good night's rest and am disappointed we failed to deliver that for you. We will work hard every day to monitor the property for any unnecessary disturbances and will keep intact a facility which you otherwise gave high marks.
My apologies and I ask that you give us another try in the not too distant future.

We stayed at City Loft while visiting 'Beautiful Beaufort by the Sea'. Whether sinking into the inviting soaking tub or the heavenly bed, we felt very pampered and renewed after a busy day.

The room was fantastic! From the freshly-baked cookies and Coffee Shop coupons to the robes, comfy bed, and over-sized shower and tub, everything was perfect! Did I mention the TV in the bathroom :) Wine was available in the room as well!

Enjoy a horse-drawn carriage tour, bike ride (rentals available from the hotel) or walk through the Historic District or on the Beaufort Waterfront (both just a block away!) after a quick breakfast/lunch stop at the Coffee Shop. AND, for beach-goers, Hunting Island State Park and Beach is just a short 20-minute car ride from Beaufort!

City Loft deserves a lot of praise for providing such a wonderfully-delightful experience!!

This is an awesome hotel in the heart of Beaufort. We were in town on a business trip and the owner, Matt, was great and very accommodating. Our room was a perfect size and had all the amenities of a 5 star hotel. Perfect stay and highly recommended.

We have stayed at City Loft twice now, and have thoroughly enjoyed each visit. The staff are genuinely friendly and helpful and available 24/7. The conveniences, from the couples tub to pillow-top king-size bed, to the fridge and flat-screen TV, are very clean and up to date. An intimate coffee shop is just a few steps away. The location of the hotel is in the historic district, so you can wander along streets filled with homes that date back to the antebellum period, and you are two blocks from the water front, which is full of shops and restaurants, and the Woods Memorial swing bridge, which is your gateway to the beautiful Sea Islands.

Thank you very much for your kind review of City Loft. Repeat stays are what we strive to achieve each time a guest arrives on the property. It appears you took advantage of our location and enjoyed City Loft and historic Beaufort, SC. We look forward to a third visit.

We stayed at the City Loft Hotel for our 30th Wedding Anniversary June 2 and 3. The hotel was beautiful with a modern flair, comfortable furniture. Every inch of space was used efficiently in the redesign of this 60s era hotel. The finishes are gorgeous. The staff of this hotel were very helpful and considerate. The rooms were immaculate. The location is perfect--within walking distance of the historic district and the downtown shopping area. The coffee shop in the hotel was convenient and delicious! We will visit again and stay at the City Loft Hotel.

Room Tip: We were on the first floor--105--nice comfortable quiet
