Yeah it's off the beaten path... about a 10 minute walk to King Street... So I do not recommend this hotel to people for their first visit to Charleston... but for my wife and I, it's our choice... We met in Charleston and I used to live two blocks from the mansion, so the location has a soft spot for me.. so in my mind it's the perfect location.. away from the hordes of tourists on King Street but close enough to pop down for dinner or etc... The free parking is also a plus. I haven't paid any attention to the category I've booked but we've always had the same room here. Nice day bed for curling up and reading, comfy king bed and also a fire place. I love spending rainy January days reading in this room.. it's very very cozy.. Good bathrooms with nice tubs/showers. Great service.. Turn down always leaves weather reports and treats. Breakfast is very very very good, with excellent pastries and great cooked options... We had dinner a couple of times at Circa 1886 and it's very good and very convenient... only trouble for it is that there are so many excellent options in Charleston. The massages I've had in the spa also have been satisfactory. Only negative is no pool but not a huge deal- it's a historic property and there just isn't room for that... Visit the cupola to get a nice aerial view as well.. BTW The pedicabs are useful if you're feeling lazy... So in summary, probably my favorite place to stay in Charleston and I will be back.
