Just concluded a wonderful weekend at the Charleston Place. In a nutshell, the hotel is great I was impressed with the service of literally everyone with whom we came in contact. Check-in was a breeze, the guys in the front were great pointing me toward a wine shop and where to take a scenic run. You feel the history at this place and it's a "go big or go home" place to spend the weekend. Location literally could not be more perfect.
Two small issues...First, we were in what was ostensibly a renovated room. The HVAC was simply not good enough. The temperature did not get in the zip code of the "target temperature" selected (yes, I like it cold, but despite selecting 66, it never got below 69). To boot, it got downright hot overnight because the system cycled on and off. The noise of the system switching itself back on was loud enough to wake me up and I don't consider myself a light sleeper.
The TV skipping/pausing/freezing issue is well documented and obviously true. This is a solvable problem by demanding solution from their provider to selected a new one. That it has lingered on suggests that management is not placing sufficient effort on resolving it which is disappointing.
Negatives aside, I would return without thinking twice. The place looked and felt "Charleston," which is about all one can ask for a weekend crashpad.
