The staff was very friendly and attentive to our questions. The shuttle to the downtown area was great and much appreciated. It is definitely difficult to exit the hotel parking lot onto 17 so we appreciated letting someone else do it! The location was by far the best feature of this hotel. There was a lot to do close by and all kinds of restaurants to choose from. We enjoyed this aspect very much.
The downside of this hotel was the comfort level of our room. I know that Charleston is humid in August, but I was counting on having air conditioning that would help reduce that effects. In every other place we've been, the air conditioner always seemed to dry things out. We had an air conditioner that actually worked well at cooling things off, but it remained EXTREMELY humid in our room. We actually had to put our beach clothes in the car to dry because they wouldn't dry in our room. Everything we owned became slightly damp over the few days that we were staying there. It was frustrating to come back at night to put on damp clothes to sleep in. Very disappointing. I saw all the good reviews and decided to book 3 nights through Priceline. That was a mistake. I would have moved to a different hotel after that first night if we hadn't already committed for those 3 nights.
