Weekend getaway

Posted Mar 2, 2015
Great location for having easy (on foot) access to Charleston tours, shopping, restaurants and nightlife. The concierge was amazing and helped with all of our planning to ensure we covered the best spots to enjoy in a few short days. Rooms are comfortable but aged. Looks like they are working on various improvements but I expected a little better given the hotel brand.

Thank you very much for staying with us and for offering your feedback about your recent stay. I'm excited to see that you were able to take advantage of the hotel's incredible location as well as some great recommendations from our Navigator Concierge to ensure you covered all the "best spots" during your recent trip. We pride ourselves on being able to tell our guests about all of the best local places to see, sip, savor, and shop ... and we can't wait to tell you about our favorite new discoveries during your next trip to Charleston. We're excited that a new restaurant, operated by one of Charleston's celebrity chefs, will soon be opening at the hotel and it's looking like it may make our "best spots" list in the future. The enhancements are nearly complete and we can't wait for our guests to be able to experience it. Thank you again for your feedback. We hope we may be afforded another opportunity to host you in the future. Regards, Brian Wander General Manager

The towels felt like sand paper. The towels at the Holiday Inn are softer for 1/2 the price.

Family College Visit Trip to Charleston

Posted Feb 19, 2015
Pros: The convenience to the College of Charleston and King Street/Market Street areas.
Cons: Can't change the room sizes, but the price should be adjusted accordingly. These were not $350/night rooms.
Location: Lively nightlife, eateries and shopping within walking distance.
The location of the hotel was very convenient, however the photographs of the exterior of the hotel are very misleading as you envision a large, grand entrance, when in fact you enter from a side street and the front of the hotel and its driveway are sandwiched facing the side of the church next door. The interior of the lobby was nice, but perhaps a little sterile - lots of white marble. Being a family with 2 teenagers, we always reserve 2 rooms so we are not crowded - thankfully we did so on this trip, too. The $349/night rooms were tiny and had the scenic view of the air conditioning units on the rooftop next door. The room was so small that when the bathroom door, which opened out into the room rather than in, was open you could not access the door to the room. The furnishings, while clean, were well worn. Following a walking tour after our arrival we decided to have a drink in the bar before deciding on dinner. We learned then that the hotel's restaurant was CLOSED for renovation and that the bar would be CLOSED for renovation as well following that evening. Including the fact that many of their waitstaff had already been laid off or would soon be. Mind you this was the Thursday before Valentine's Day. Terrible timing on their part. The valet service was dicey - great when they weren't busy, but on one occasion we returned to the hotel and couldn't even get into the driveway much less find a valet. The experience was overpriced for what we received.

Great location in downtown Charleston.

Posted Feb 12, 2015
Pros: The staff was very friendly and hardworking.
It was a wonderful location. Downtown Charleston, walking distance to everything. Right around the corner from a beautiful church, Our Lady of the Annunciation which has week day masses at 7. The hotel staff was friendly and hardworking. Really aiming to please and not just going through the motions.

Nice Hotel close to city center and French Quarter

Posted Feb 10, 2015
Pros: Room, and Very nice Lobby bar with piano player.
Cons: In a tight area, but accessible from Meeting street
Location: Just off Meeting street and easy walking distance to market, horse trolleys, and Historic Homes
Great Tours and Restaurants close by. The area is in the old downtown and close to where two rivers converge into the bay. Quiet hotel with great ambiance.
