This makes the second time we have stayed here and for a good reason! It's so close to the port, it's clean, has wonderful views, and the staff is super friendly! They always make sure to meet our requests with having a port side facing room. I love waking up in the morning and looking out and seeing our ship! Never had a bad experience with this place! Thanks so much for the wonderful times!

My husband used to live out here & drove by this hotel a lot, always wanted to stay there. So we did! Our son loved the idea of the round hotel! Nice staff. Decent rooms. Comfortable beds. Rooms are a little small due to the round shape & lack of angles but ok. We had dinner in rooftop restaurant which was nice with very friendly waitstaff. The food wasn't as good as we expected, but it was tolerable. All in all, good experience!

Dear Katie B,
We are so happy that you decided to give us an opportunity after driving by the hotel for all those year. Your son is right. The “Round Holiday Inn Riverview” is super cool! The hotel is a true landmark in Charleston it was established in March of 1971 one of only a few high rise buildings in Charleston. Therefore, the views from the guest rooms and restaurant are spectacular. Thanks again for giving us an opportunity.

It's probably a 2 or 3 star hotel, but the staff was exceptional. Everything was clean etc... things are just dated and a little dingy. It's reasonably located, but if you need to be in the downtown area (walking distance), look elsewhere. The shuttle runs every two hours and carries 10 passengers, we never were on schedule and took our own cars.
The pool is nice and the restaurant on top should be visited, if only for a drink, the view is great. We did have a nice lite breakfast there. Rooms are a little small due to the shape of the hotel, which I actually enjoyed.
Nice place, would recommend.

We paid over $200 for 2 double beds. Located across the river from downtown. Cab ride cost $10 back from kings street(bar/nightlife central) free shuttle every two hours thru 9:30 p.m. The service was great, the employees were extremely helpful. The bar/restaurant on the top floor was very nice. Had a breakfast buffet which was not included in price of our stay. Pool on 3rd floor outdoor rooftop. Drain in our bathtub clogged but they were quick about fixing it. Our view was of the Waffle House parkinglot. Over priced.

This is a unique hotel as it is round. Sits between the highway for easy access coming and going to downtown Charleston. Even though it's location is between the highway, I had no road noise in my room. Beds were very comfy, towels were thick and clean. This is a fantastic hotel. Only minutes from downtown with free shuttle service that drop off and pick up at two downtown locations. If you need a cab for downtown, only $10 which I don't think is too bad. Hotel is clean. From the entrance to the elevator, room and bathroom, very clean. The restaurant on the top floor has a wonderful full breakfast buffet and oh what a view! Eggs, two meats, pancakes, French toast, grits, potatoes, biscuits and gravy, fruit, cereal, coffee, juice. Oh my! I will be returning, you won't go wrong here. What ever your room location you will have a great view. Balconies are locked out, so no enjoyment there. But that should not be a hindrance for booking. Staff are so very nice and attentive.

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking toward downtown.

My husband and I spent four days in Charleston this past week (Wednesday night through Sunday night), staying at the Holiday Inn Riverview. No, the hotel was not trendy, overly romantic, or extravagant. What it was was clean and convenient with an amazingly hospitable staff, from the front desk to housekeeping to the shuttle drivers. For us, it was perfect!

We didn't want to pay to stay on the Peninsula, and because of the hotel shuttle service, staying here was just as convenient. The shuttles were on time and ran every two hours all day. It saved us a lot of money and frustration with trying to find parking in town.

The front desk staff was awesome no matter who was there, but Josh, in particular, was helpful on a couple of occasions. He got us checked in efficiently when we arrived late Wednesday night, and had oodles of good restaurant recommendations.

Our room was clean, comfortable, and quiet, even though we were literally across the hall from the elevator. The day we left our Do Not Disturb sign out when we left the room, Housekeeping left clean towels and toiletry supplies in a bag by the door. Completely unexpected. Nice touch.

The breakfast in the hotel is ample and good. Reasonably priced as hotel breakfast buffets go.

We did not use the pool, though my husband used the workout room and said it was nice.

The free wi-fi was slow to connect, but once it did, we had no issues. Only complaint was that one night we thought we would watch a movie On Demand... but the hotel doesn't have that. Not a big deal. Total first world problem.

Yes, as some people commented, the hotel shows wear. But who cares!? It provided a safe, clean, convenient location to stay during our time in Charleston. We would definitely stay here again without hesitation.

Room Tip: The higher the floor, the better the view!
