This hotel is right near downtown as you're on king street across from the shopping street & a nice little park. The service was great and the building is easy to find as it's very tall for the area.
Nothing haunted us and the room was fairly tiny. We did get a good deal, but I think if we return it will be to a different hotel. The lobby is beautiful though, so spend your time hanging out there. Our view was just of another building, not a pretty one either. Not abnormal for Charleston probably, but it didn't give us much desire to spend time in the room.
Overall, our experience at the hotel, was good, but not noteworthy. It's a great choice if you're looking for a deal and planning to spend all but sleeping time in the city like we were.
