“Loved this place”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Apart from some difficulty in driving to the exact location, everything else worked really well (apart from some errors for breakfast on one day).

Our room(s) were magnificent, probably appropriate if we had been staying for a week or two, but a little over the top for our short stay needs.

Management and staff tried successfully to make us welcome and this contributed to our warm feelings for Charleston

Overall, a rating of Excellent is indicated

We just returned from a terrific stay and would highly recommend this boutique hotel. We stayed for 3 days in a one bedroom ... apartment is luxurious, great decor, loved the funky exposed brick...very clean and the staff goes out of their way to help with any request. We have stayed at 5 star hotels around the world and this was an equally impressive venue sans the pretense. With temperatures nearing 100 degrees during our stay, we were doubly pleased when we were outfitted with beach chairs and towels so we could beat the heat at the nearby beaches. Refreshments in the frig, including sparkling water were most welcome. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend ROK to our friends.

Couldn't have picked a better place. We are family of four and like having room for our teenage kids. We stayed in the 2 br apartment complete with kitchen ) that we really didn't need) and large living room, all well appointed, clean and quiet. Only other hotel to consider( in my opinion) is st Charles place since it has a large indoor outdoor pool, but you don't get the space for the price. We also like the fact that ROK had small boutique feel and loved the wine and cheese hour no to mention cookies and port later in the evening. It was very close to activities including restaurants and shopping and we are glad we chose this location rather than French quarter inn which was on a busy construction filled street.

We had a great stay here as a family. Superb and stylish apartment in a great location. Full kitchen and good breakfast basket. I'd received an email about building work to the hotel that had worried me but I didn't notice a thing. We checked in past midnight with lots of luggage, beach bags and tired kids but nothing was too much trouble. Would make this place my top choice if returning to the city.

We stayed here in August 2014 with our two sons. (4 and 6) What the pictures and website can tell you is that it is a beautiful boutique hotel in the middle of historic Charleston. What the pictures can't tell you is how amazing the service and atmosphere is.

Howard and his staff have created a wonderfully quiet and inviting atmosphere for their guests. Between the breakfast picnic basket to the afternoon wine to the evening cookies and milk, you will feel instantly at ease.

I can't recommend this hotel enough!

A South Carolina Native, this place made me feel right at home. Clean, spacious, modern meets historic. Brick walls, high ceilings, luxurious beds and bathrobes. Relaxing sit down shower. Breakfast picnic basket made my Birthday so special and inviting. Thank you guys so much!
A trip downtown Charleston and a day trip to folly, this is a place to definitely sleep in, relax and spend a great couples trip!

My daughter treated us for a three night stay in Charleston. I could not brag enough about it to my family and friends. Amazing accommodations, even more amazing staff, perfect location - and delicious breakfast and other amenities. This will become our annual getaway on the way to Hilton Head Island!
Love, Love, Love it!

Room Tip: Our room was on King - it was jumping but not too loud.

Green Features: I can't say enough about the hotel and staff - this is the first time I bothered to write a review on anything - but I had to do it for this hotel. Just completely amazing stay!
