Thank Goodness for this hotel! My wife & I were planning our 1st trip to Charleston & really wanted the 'Old City', 'Historic District' experience. Hotels down in the District were very pricy, so we shopped around, checked other Trip Advisor reviews, & decided on the West of Ashley. Turned out to be a real gem! True, you are NOT waking up in downtown Charleston proper, however the very easy, short drive there is not worth the expense difference. The Comfort Suite is immaculate, someone is definately 'steering the ship'! Wonderful staff did everything they could to welcome & take care of our needs. This was while the hotel was fully booked every night we were there. Charlene treated us like family, a high point of the day was seeing her behind the front desk; where we'd exchange "Good Mornings". She managed that smile & pleasant attitude EVERY time & usually while checking someone in or out, answering the phones, and giving directions to town simultaneously! The rooms are recently updated & attractive, well appointed, & roomy. Our King bed was very, very comfortable. Climate control worked efficiently & quietly; we needed heat & A/C during the same stay. We were on the Rt. 17 side of the building & traffic was barely noticeable even during weekday "rush hour". Swimming pool is clean, well maintained, & surrounded by windows, giving it a well lit; outdoorsy feel. The included breakfast is better than most at this level of hotel. Eggs, fresh waffles made by you, yogurt, good coffee, tea, & juice choices, and several types of bread to toast. Breakfast cereals, danish, donuts, & other pastries round out the menu. It can be crowded in the main area where breakfast is served, but the hotel opens one of their conference rooms to accommodate the overflow. Not a problem. If I had to sum it all up in 2 words, I'd say: Staff & Cleanliness. Stay there & spend the $$$ you'll save on Shrimp & Grits ... you won't be sorry!
