“Perfect location, atypical Hampton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2010

Directly across from the Visitor's Center for bus tours, informational movie and brochures. Wonderful dining next door and within 1 and 2 blocks. Large breakfast buffet with 2 attendants, ample seating, large choice of foods, outdoor eating area if weather is nice. A microwave to warm the danish and cinnamon rolls would have a nice touch. Waffles, sausage or ham, scrambled eggs, bagels, toast, delicious cut fresh fruit (pineapple, mango and papaya to which we added bananas), muffins, yogurts, cereals, juice, etc. Coffee and iced water always in the lobby after touring. Large clean rooms with attention to details (i.e., washclothes and handtowels were neatly folded in a different manner each of the 3 days there). Friendly desk staff, a bellman Henry that is the old South personified! Walk everywhere from this location. Parking garage @$12/day directly behind the building - pulled car into entrance area for unloading/loading. Slow internet connection for our laptop. Finally gave up a couple of times - a disappointment since I keep up with my work from the laptop while traveling. The tap water is HOT, so be careful. Coffee pot makes just one cup at a time. No fridge, microwave, or little table in room but 2 nice areas to open up suitcases. Nice bedding. Would definitely recommend or stay there again. Excellent location.

We travel quite a bit, both for business and pleasure. We were very happy with the friendliness and efficiency of the staff, the size and appearance of our room, a very comfortable bed, beautifully decorated lobby, with ice water and cookies out at least one evening. Very good breakfast, with plenty of variety over our three day stay. Agree with one reviewer that the disposable cups, plates and utensils was disappointing -- but that was the only change we would make. Also liked its convenient location -- walking distance to most attractions and two very good restaurants right next door. Definitely plan to return.

We arrived early and didn't expect it but were pleased when the staff immediately checked us in and urged us to have breakfast. Within an hour of arriving, being checked in early, getting our car parked & bags to the room, the helpful staff had scheduled a tour for us. While it's a little further from the district than some, the Visitor Center's proximity (across the street) makes it a perfect location. Any of the 3 DASH trolley routes can be accessed from anywhere in the touristy areas and all will bring you back to the center - and therefore, the hotel. We loved it. It was clean, quiet, accommodating and very convenient. Yes, the breakfast is the standard fare - but the best standard fare and plentiful. We were readily offered advice for any type of food or meal that we were interested in and they even had a book of restaurants' menus available. We will definitely suggest this hotel to our friends.

Stayed here for a quick trip to Charleston over a rainy weekend. Staff was helpful. All amenities were in working order. Breakfast was plentiful - but I got there very early. Room was clean and comfortable. The location is a good ways from the market area, but we had our own vehicle so that wasn't a problem. Parking wasn't free - I think it was about $12/night. That was a drag. The price of the room was reasonable, so I would stay here again.

Stayed at the Hampton Inn for three days. Hotel's location is in walking distance of several museums and Market Place and it's also across the street from the Visitors Center. We didn't have time to visit all the sites we wanted so we're planning to visit Charleston again and will definitely be staying at this Hampton Inn again. Staff is very friendly and helpful, especially the concierge and front desk.

Overall, I liked the Hampton Inn in Historic Charleston and would definitely stay again. The hotel was very clean, the room was large, and the location was great. It's on the edge of the historic distric--a few blocks in one direction would lead you into the wrong part of town. However, where we were was perfectly safe and close to a lot of restaurants, bars, and parks. We could walk to anywhere in the historic district rather easily (including the market and the aquarium).

The only negatives that I can think of was that the heater in our room was a little loud and there was a concert across the street Saturday night that went on until 11 pm. I had asked at the desk for earplugs, which they didn't have. It was slightly annoying, but the noise stopped before we went to sleep, so it wasn't a huge deal.

Just a warning--they offer to include parking in your bill but it is $3 a day cheaper if you pay for it in the lot!

We stayed at the Hampton Inn Charleston - Histroical District for seven night. Across from main Tolley Stop, Only a few steps from King Street-Great location, and excellent staff at your service, and clean. The breakfast is plentiful, but I was disappointed in the same menu every day.
