If you are a loyal hilton traveler and want to stay in Charleston's historic district, the Hampton is your best bet. It is not the nicest Hilton brand hotel I've stayed in, but the room is comfortable, the hallways are bright and clean, and the front desk staff is helpful. It is 1,000 times more clean and comfortable than the Historic District Embassy Suites (across the street) and much more affordable than the Double Tree (which, frankly, has no nicer of a room).
Parking is a bit of a pain (garage only). If you park in the garage, be sure to exit on the side away from the Embassy Suites- otherwise you will have to walk all the way around the block to enter the hotel.
No room service available, but several great restaurants in walking distance. On a really hot day you will probably want to drive to the market area as this hotel is approximately 15- 20 blocks away. On a nice day it's a pleasant walk.
