Enoyed our stay very much. The location is great- close to sites-restaurants- shopping etc

This is a nice hotel in the heart of the HD. Very close to all the attraction most people are interested in.

Room Tip: We had a quiet room on the Courtyard, so very little traffic/street noise.

I chose the Doubletree mainly due to its location just steps from the shopping on King Street and minutes walk from Bay Sreet's bars and restaurants. Upon arrival the efficient and hassle free valet service allowed us to check in within minutes to our spacious suite room before setting out to explore and enjoy this great town. Service throughout our stay was efficient and pleasant, our room perfectly equipped for a short stay. In all a great stay and ideally suited for our girlie break!

This hotel is over priced rooms are below average! If you have children don't get a courtyard room! The locks are easy for them to open and you are upstairs! What a nightmare! They found people had been living in the attic above our room! We saw a light on up there and reported it !
No security at door! Staff was nice but over all the only good thing is the location.

Room Tip: Don't stay in the courtyard! I had to get up to check on the kids downstairs all night! The lock...

Dear valued guest, Thank you for taking the time to post a review from your stay with us. I’d like to clarify that for safety reason for our team members, the lights in the attic are always on. No one lives in the attic, but staff will occasionally need access for various reasons. The suite type you booked was a courtyard suite. The locks in those suites are identical to locks elsewhere in our hotel; they provide a primary deadbolt and a secondary flip latch. During the reservation process you should have been informed that the room was a bi-level suite. I apologize if it wasn’t clear that the sofa bed/living room was in the downstairs portion of the suite. Based on your feedback, we will be reviewing all of our suite descriptions to make sure they contain the best information.

I hope we have the chance to welcome you back to our hotel in the near future.

We chose this DoubleTree because of its proximity to "The Market" and also it was within walking distance to one of the Spoleto venues, not to mention great restaurants and beautiful architecture. Even before our arrival the experience was outstanding - we called several times to ask about breakfast, valet etc and always received EXTREMELY professional and courteous service. We had read some of the review regarding the rooms/common areas needing updating, so we were pleasantly surprised. The valet greeted us right away with great service, the lobby was beautiful with comfy furniture and fresh flower arrangements. There were courtyards off the lobby with fountains and benches to sit out and enjoy. We were on the 5th floor. There were a couple of lounging areas on that floor we utilized for photo ops :) We had a two room suite that overlooked Church Street. The bedroom was an adequate size with two double? rice style beds. The bathroom/vanity area was average. The living area was large enough to accomodate 5 women sitting around and talking. There was also a minifridge and coffemarker (no microwave :( though). The only cosmetic problem I had was with the pullout sofa, the back of the sofa was worn, but not to the point of being in disrepair. Any requests we made - extra towels, sheets, a replacement ironing board (ours was broken) were responded to promptly and courteously. The check in process was a breeze - always look forward to the cookie welcome. Breakfast was amazing (thanks Ms. Gladys). I usually stay at a Hampton and am used to the free hot breakfast, but as a diamond hilton honors member we received two free breakfasts. At checkout we were each even given small bottles of water for our journey around the market and our car was allowed to stay in valet until after 4pm - the guys even loaded our bags for us while we departed for the market. I would definitely stay again. This Doubletree was pricey, but for the proximity to the market area (and the fact that the cost was split between the 5 of us) I think it was a good deal and would definitely stay again. We had a beautiful time

Room Tip: This has nothing to do with the room, but Fleet Landing is within walking distance and offered a gre...

Although the carpeting and room furniture is a bit outdated, our room was very spacious and comfortable. The cable was out during our stay, which was a bit frustrating because we wanted to check the weather. However, they have a small business center with computers that we used to check the forecast. The staff was very helpful with details of the area, and the valet service was extremely efficient. We absolutely loved the fact that the hotel was within walking distance of almost everything we had planned. You can't beat the location... it's less than a block from the Historic Market and only two streets over from King Street shopping.
