Sweet SurprisePosted Jul 15, 2015
Pros: Comfy bed - that's the most important thing any time, isn't it?
Cons: Having cold water and glasses downstairs and bedroom upstairs - it'd be nice to have an easy drink of ice water at hand at night.
Location: Great restaurants nearby plus being steps away from the City Market and buggy tours makes it nice.
This was our first stay at Church St. Inn but it won't be our last. Terrific location, beautiful facility, friendly staff and a great suite of rooms. One of the best little places we've ever stayed.

Festiva on Church Street.Posted Jun 6, 2015
Pros: Quaint, old-fashioned. Loved having the two bathrooms.
Cons: We did kill two bugs on separate days; we're hoping they were not cockroaches. We checked our luggage thoroughly.
Location: Hotel is near open market and beautiful mansions. We visited Sullivan's Island for a walk on the beach and lunch at Poe's Tavern. Very good!
We arrived late in the evening and were greeted by a very friendly clerk who, nicely, on his own, upgraded our bed to a king. We met Becky on Tuesday morning. She was friendly. We declined her invitation to Festiva's timeshare tour. Hotel is in the perfect location for long walks. The city is beautiful. Market is right near the hotel.

Visiting History...Posted May 30, 2015
Pros: Comfort, quality and cleanliness of our accommodations and friendliness of all staff we dealt with.
Cons: On a prior trip we were treated to a social hour with free appetizers and wine provided by the hotel each evening. It was a delight.
Location: Hotel located very near Marketplace and other downtown attractions and within easy walking distance of the waterfront and batteries.
Daughter and I love older architecture and historic places/buildings. Charleston SC fit the bill and then some. We opted to stay in a historic building and the Festiva's Church Street Inn was everything and more than we expected. We loved the location and proximity to all the downtown attractions and historic places. We were impressed by how fresh and clean the hotel was and the quality of the amenities and furnishings. Their attractiveness and comfort were beyond our expectations. We would gladly stay there again the next time we are in that city.

Nice hotel close to everythingPosted May 25, 2015
We had a great time in Charleston. The staff was exceptional. The one bedroom is a little small for four women.

Condo hotel in the heart of CharlestonPosted May 23, 2015
Pros: Everything about this hotel felt like old Charleston and the location is near the market, restaurants and all the historic locations.
Location: The hotel is right across from the market and with just blocks of carriage rides, restaurants, waterfront and historic sights.
We loved the apartment feel, it's 2 story with an antique feel. There's a full kitchen, 1 1/2 baths, small balcony overlooking the market, beautiful lobby and courting with fountain.

Excellent LocationPosted May 11, 2015
Cons: Poor quality towels
Location: adjacent to Market
This property is a collection of privately owned units that Festiva rents out. Each unit has a small full kitchen (full frig, stove, microwave, sing, etc), bedroom and sitting room. This property is not about luxury, service, amenities (none) or charm. This is a convenience play: either for the location or the kitchen (you could park a child on the pull-up couch). There are cooking smells in the hall which nobody likes. I booked here because others were full or charging 600 per night. And then, 2 days prior to my arrival the other hotels listed rooms for about 150 less than the Church Street Inn. I noticed it 3 hours after the cancellation deadline.

Excellent Location for First Time VisitorsPosted May 5, 2015
We stay at the Church Street Inn twice; one night before our family event in Myrtle Beach and two nights afterward. If I come back to Charleston with just my husband and myself, I wouldn't stay here again but if I were to bring my children I would. It is not a romantic or luxurious hotel by any means, but it is large and comfortable for the price you pay to stay in Charleston historic district. The location of this hotel is fabulous. Walking distance to every thing a first time visitors would want to do. Several of the must visited restaurants in Charleston are less than a 10-15 min walk from the hotel. Both times we stayed in a 2 Bedroom unit. The units are totally different in layouts and decorations. The first unit had a bedroom and bath downstairs and living room, kitchen and another bed room with adjacent bath upstairs. This unit is overly decorated, dark and the windows can't be opened. The beds are comfortable though. The second unit is large, bright, and has nice comfy furniture and a well equipped kitchen. But it has one bath downstairs with a very dark small shower. Upstairs has two bedrooms. One has king bed with a bathroom en suite and the other has a queen bed with no bathroom. There is an elevator to the unit but within the unit there is a narrow step carpetted staircase. It's something to consider if you have an elderly person in your group. The staff is very friendly and helpful especially the concierge Becky and the receptionist Shelly.

Great hotel in the heart of the historic district!Posted May 4, 2015
Pros: Location... location...location!
Cons: Replace the bed linens/comforters in the bedrooms. They seem old and musty. Add some kind of light breakfast service (there is no restaurant).
Location: It is centrally located in the heart of the historic district. Knowledgeable concierge can provide information on many great sites and activities.
Staff was very good. The hotel is well-located on a quiet side street in the historic district. It's very old, but completely remodeled. We had a two-bedroom, two-story condo unit with fully equipped kitchen, living and dining areas and two full baths. Tastefully furnished.
