This was a last minute trip and we knew little about the property, but it exceeded our expectations, and I am very picky about hotels having been lucky enough to stay in 5 star hotels most of my life.
Do not be fooled by the low key/small lobby... We had a lovely, large one bedroom suite on the third floor, overlooking King Street. The large living room/dining/kitchen area was on the first floor, and then up two steps into the loft for the bedroom, walk in closet, washer/dryer and bathroom (large walk in shower, no tub). Everything was new, very clean, and thoughtfully prepared-- from the diet cokes/waters in the fridge to the make-up wipes in the toiletry set.
Everyone who works at the hotel was very nice and helpful in arranging car service to the beach and making recommendations on restaurants.
We didn't try room service, so I can't speak to that. But the location was great for walking to nearby restaurants such as Fig and Hall's Chophouse. You can easily walk anywhere in Charleston from the hotel.
I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to friends... the only caveat is if you are looking for a full service hotel with a pool and spa, you might look elsewhere until they expand. This felt more like a home away from home, which is what we were looking for on our quick weekend of relaxation in Charleston.
