Stayed here on business and chose it because of location. I'm doing a project in downtown Charleston and have made it a practice to say in the downtown areas when possible. I was not disappointed. First off the hotel is located right in the heart of downtown Charleston and is walking distance from everywhere. Regardless of which direction you go on King Street you will find an incredible selection of shops and restaurants at every imaginable price point and type.
This is NOT a modern chain property. My room was small and decently appointed, but it's older and small. For my needs this was not a problem. I stayed on a high floor and it was reasonably quiet and the bed was comfortable. In a town like Charleston you are not likely to be spending a lot of time in your room.
The hotel has a friendly comfortable vibe, so I would definitely consider coming back.
