When we booked the reseveration, I was informed that the hotel was close to capacity due to an event hosted by the Palmetto Shag Club. Upon entering the lobby, I noticed that there were lots of people hanging around socializing. I assumed we would be given a room far away from the action since we were not a part of the event.
They gave us a first floor room very close to the area where the manager's reception is held and breakfast is served. I thought "this is not going to be good." I assumed the room would be nosey because we were so close to the center of actvity. I was pleasantly surprised. The two room suite was a nice size. The room itself was very long. There was even a door (with a lock) that separated the two room. When we sat in the living area, I could hear the noises outside. But, it was during the manager's reception and I expected that. Once we were in the bedroom, I couldn't hear anything.
The manager's reception was adequately staffed. I thought I would have to wait a long time for a beverage because of the amount of people in the hotel for the Palmetto Shag Club event. During the manager's reception, they had 2 lines - one for beer & wine and the other for mixed drinks. They also had a special mixed drink for the Shag event. I wanted to try it but the line on that side was too long so I just drank wine. They also offered chips & salsa and veggies with ranch & blue cheese.
Overall, I was very satisfied with the hotel and would definitely stay there again.
