This Hampton is attractive enough, and in a great location at the periphery of Charleston's historic district. Just about anything you'd want to see and do in that area is within a 20 minute walk, and bicycle rickshaws are ubiquitous and readily available. The hotel staff was consistently friendly, helpful, and courteous...as was pretty much everyone we encountered in Charleston (these are some very polite and friendly folks). The hotel was very clean and the bed was quite comfortable, but there were a few things about the room that made me crazy.

First of all, the room was very small compared to other Hamptons. With the king-sized bed in the room, there was room for little else besides the small armoire housing the television, two night stands, a sitting chair in the corner, and a tiny desk with barely enough room for the mini coffee maker and a laptop. I was immediately struck by how spartan the furnishings were...there was not a sign of a decorator's touch, with very plain draperies, a simple white comforter (which I did like because I could easily see that it was clean), and not a picture or wall-hanging of any kind. I realize I wasn't moving into the place, but I expect a little more ambience for $220/night.

The bathroom was terrible. It was tiny, and there was ZERO counterspace on miniscule single-sink vanity. Housekeeping barely had enough room to cram the complimentary toiletries in the corner, and my curling iron balanced precariously on the 2:" edge...always on the verge of toppling into the sink. There was literally no room to leave out even a tube of toothpaste. This made it very tough for two people to get ready to go out at the same time, since (as I mentioned in the previous paragraph) there was not another mirror or any other usable surface anywhere in the room. The hair dryer was the type that is usually wall-mounted, but it wasn't...so the wall-mounting hardware dangled from the cord as you used it, banging around on everything. I really hated that bathroom, and it is the main reason that I am rating my stay in this hotel a "3".

The hotel puts out a better than average complimentary breakfast in the morning, with a good selection of hot and cold items. There always seemed to ba pastries and beverages set out in the lobby during the day, and there was also a snack and beverage offering every evening around 5:00 (which I did not partake of)..

The parking situation was not great, but I'm pretty sure it's not much better anywhere else in downtown Charleston. There was a parking garage adjacent to the hotel that charged $12/day (cash only, but for an additional $3/day you could put the parking charges on your room bill). Realistically, we shouldn't have even bothered renting a car, because it is so easy and cheap to get around in the city.

This property was nice enough, but because of the room (and bathroom) size, I would probably book elsewhere if I visit Charleston again.
