Reviewed 13 March 2011

Brand New converted Holiday Inn all new great location. Really enjoyed our stay despite a one hour ten minute nonstop fire alarm glitch at 5:15 a.m. - 6:25 Saturday. Thought compensation of 5,000 Rewards point was an insult (worth $35...)_ ... but otherewise great staff great product. Would never ever eat the "Turbo Chef" pre processed food in any of the "New" Courtyards... but Justine's is just down the street...We did Kevin's top 20 places to see and photograph really fun. Kevin also recommended Michael Trouche, Charleston Footprints which was an incredible informative and entertaining walking tour.

If you are looking to stay in the Historic district and want fantastic service, you need to stay here! The hotel just opened and is beautiful, clean and has the world's best concierge. I was thinking about moving to Charleston and Kevin, the chief concierge, was a wealth of knowledge and charm. He even took my mom and I on a magical, moonlit tour of the downtown area! He got us into fantastic restaurants: which was a feat considering it was the food & wine festival! I would recommend this hotel to friends and family based on Kevin's service alone but the fact that the hotel is clean and beautiful is an added bonus! If you don't believe me, call the hotel and ask to speak to him. I bet you will be booking your trip there before you hang up with him!

From the moment that you walk into this hotel, you will be bombarded with advertisements about their concierge services. There are signs across from the elevator and even in your bathroom. I am not making this up. There was a sign in the bathroom written in yellow and purple listing 10 reasons to use their concierge. I have stayed in other hotels which also had good concierges, and no where did I see any speck of advertising for the service.

You will also be repeatedly prompted to write favorable reviews about the hotel on and to mention their concierge. When I checked in, I was given a map of the city and on the map is a request to write a favorable review of the hotel. I also received a letter when I checked in and checked out in the same typeface as that travel site and hoping that my stay was "very satisfied". Nevertheless, I was not.

The hotel charges $11.00 a day to park, however the spaces are very narrow. We took a small car on this trip and could barely fit into a space. We could not open both doors at the same time. I had to stop, let my wife out of the car and then pull into the space. The spaces appear to be narrow so that more cars can fit into the lot. If you are going to charge me for parking, give me a space that I can use.

I will not stay here again, nor will I recommend this hotel. It’s very tacky to bombard guests with advertisements and requests to write favorable reviews, no matter how good you think your concierge services are. This hotel is just an average 2 star hotel.
