good place to stayPosted Jul 25, 2013 on Hotels.com
It was a great place to stay. Having a full kitchen was nice and I would love to go back and stay for a full week sometime. The only issue was the noise in the mornings. So if you like to sleep in, this is not the place to do it.

Great space and location!Posted Jun 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had 3 units for a quick family trip to Charleston after a wedding on the coast. The kitchens we beautiful and well equipped, the beds comfy and the units were clean and cheery. There was some mold in the shower area and it seemed that the ceiling had experienced recent water damage in our unit and light fixtures, fans and sprinklers had not yet been fully installed. As other reviewers mentioned, the stairs were steep and you could hear some street noise - but the wonderful location was well worth the trade off. We did notice that the sofas and walls were stained and scraped - but sadly, that is probably due to inconsiderate guests rather than poor cleaning and maintenance. Unfortunately, service was poor - we called during business hours to request assistance with the washing machine and internet access, and never received a call back. Also, being from out of town, we were not notified that King is closed and Society is inaccessable on the second Sunday of every month, so check -in was a nightmare. So, as long as you don't expect "hotel-like" service, its a great value.

Nice condoPosted Jun 8, 2013
This worked out well for our needs, which was to have separate bedrooms, and an extra half bath. It's a 5 minute walk to the areas we ate in and the walk is safe and pleasant. The beds are not the most comfortable, but I also sleep on a temperpedic at home and nothing compares to those. Remember this is not a hotel, so it's not full service, but the staff is helpful. Would stay again.

Very attractive suite in great location, but...Posted May 9, 2013
Pros: Location and location and location.
Cons: Detailed check-in directions before arrival.
Location: Shops and eateries, City Market, College of Charleston, tours and more.
1st challenge is to actually find the place (there is no lobby + the small entrance doors - 1 on King + 1 on Society--are easy to miss). 2nd challenge is to gain access to your room. If you book through a third party, you are left without a clue. You need to call the phone number on your confirmation sheet. They answered and e-mailed our assigned room and the combination for the lockbox to that room. Don't ask me what you do if you don't have your smartphone handy. Things got better after getting into the room. It was a bright, spacious (probably close to 500 sf) 1-bedroom looking overlooking a very vibrant section of King Street. However the buildout is a bit awkward, with the very large island of the open kitchen crowding out any comfortable functionality of the living room area--including comfortably watching TV. The double bed was much better to look at than sleep on--too soft and you just roll to the middle. The location was excellent, within easy walking distance to all of the great places in the historic district. Bring ear plugs if you want to drown out noise between midnight and 2:30, when folks leave the watering holes on King.

Great location but...Posted Apr 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
The apartment was very clean, well equipped and very well located in the centre of Charleston. However there was very little sound insulation and we were there during prom season. It is also on the main street. We had revellers keeping us awake until 3.30am. Very good restaurant nearby called "Sermets".

Nice location, lots of roomPosted Mar 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
We enjoyed our stay. A couple of things to note: it is a condo and is not serviced throughout your stay (for the money, I thought it would be serviced). We did ask for extra towels (stayed for 4 days) and they did bring them. The TV's did not work (no network stations), we asked for them to be fixed, one was fixed the other was not - so, we piled in one of the bedrooms to watch the fixed TV. Water pressure is very low - actually comes and goes. We were told that this is "normal and part of the shower heads". I have these same shower heads and get water pressure. If you want to sleep in, this is not the place for you - the rooms are directly over the trash service (every morning around 5:30-6:30 - ugh). There are lots of stairs with no elevator. So, there is no handicapped accessibility and the climb can be tough with luggage. We did get help from the maintenance crew when leaving - they were very lovely.

Best Charleston Location!Posted Mar 29, 2013
Pros: High end kitchen.
Cons: Street noise
Location: BEST location in Charleston!
Society House is like having a friend who has loaned you their downtown Charleston condo. This is not a typical hotel with staff. The location is excellent and we were very comfortable. There was a bit of street noise but not a problem for us.

No frills condoPosted Mar 25, 2013
Cons: parking and lack of luxury
Location: great, right in the center of shopping
This is not a hotel, so be prepared. It is a condo over a store. Location is good but no parking!!! You have to park a block away in a public lot and pay. This no frills condo was pretty clean but low on charm. The "free internet" was terrible. Bathrooms were not the cleanest. I found a long hair in the tub. Price was ok and there was lots of room. Over all I could stay there again but would prefer not to.
