Very lovely hotel, with very helpful staff. The beds were soft and the pillows feather. The AC was cold and the room was quiet. Since the hotel was centrally located to all the great restaurants and markets, we never had to get into the car. They have parking for your car which was an advantage since the city has limited parking and it's expensive. It's a great value and we would definitely stay there again.

Parking can be a challenge on the peninsula, so this location is great, you can leave your car and walk all over, or take a bus. The hotel, is clean, comfortable and has a friendly staff.

The hotel and staff could not of been more wonderful, especially Maureen, the General Manager. They had a wonderful happy hour with fruit and cheese, along with coffe for the non drinkers in a very comfortable area we could all visit in. The breakfast and lunch in the hotel were set up wonderfully and were very tasty. The staff made sure our every need was met and then some. They went out of their way to make us tour reservations, dinner reservations, gave us coupons. The rooms were clean, quiet, and met all our needs easily. Very nice and comfortable rooms. We will definitely stay here whenever we are in the Charleston area and we will be sure to tell all our friends. Thanks you guys. We appreciate it.

This was our first trip to Charleston and I chose this hotel based on location and the reviews I read on trip advisor. I don't think we could have made a better choice. We loved it. We stayed for five nights the last week of April. The weather was perfect. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. They offered suggestions on where to go and what to see and what to eat-then they would call and make the arrangements for us. We had a king suite with balcony. The room was clean and spacious. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony with drinks and books. It would have been nice to have a small table too so wouldn't have to set our things on the floor. We also really liked the veranda area with fountain and tables beside the pool. It was nice to have breakfast there and relax with drinks during happy hour. The cheese, fruit, and crackers provided during that time was appreciated as well as the big chocolate chip cookies later in the evening. The location was perfect-we walked everywhere easily and having free on-site parking was a real asset. We would definitely stay here again.

What a wonderful find. The staff was so wonderful, and they all would help you outside of their assigned positions, real team players. The manager even offered to drive us somewhere rather than us having to pay for a cab. Happy hour was a great opportunity to mingle with the manager, and the guests. The room was lovely and very clean.
It was great to walk out the door and explore. We didn't use our car for three days. The staff would make arrangements for our tours and great restaurants.
Would highly recommend this hotel.
