Excellent location for exploring and dining!

Posted Jun 25, 2017
Pros: The warm and inviting staff and the décor of the hotel set the tone right away, confirming that you made an excellent hotel choice.
Cons: A really minor thing, but some added sound-proofing of the elevator drive could be beneficial.
Location: Great views from the adjacent pier. Upscale and local shopping within easy walking distance. Many dining options close by.
An awesome boutique hotel experience in a great location. Friendly staff, inviting atmosphere, and an excellent home base for exploring. A wide variety of dining options, shopping, and activities within easy walking distance. Free Charleston shuttle stops right in front of the hotel. Adjacent to pier with a panoramic view of the harbor.

Beautiful View of the Harbor

Posted Jun 7, 2017
Location: We were able to walk to all of the restaurants and shops from this hotel.
We arrived late at night and very tired but were greeted by a very nice young man who made sure that our room was ready. We noticed that the decor of the hotel was very home-like and comfortable with fluffy chairs in the seating areas and cookies and milk ready and waiting. During the day, that area was always stocked with sweet tea, herbal water, granola and m&ms. There was also a separate area where you could get coffee and specialty teas. A light breakfast with a lovely assortment of continental breakfast items was included each morning. We would definitely go back to this hotel.

Nice Hotel next to the Harbor.

Posted Jun 3, 2017
Cons: The first floor stairs. I tripped on them. The stair pattern and length change and you have to watch your feet. Also no luggage/handicap ramp.
Good location near Harbor and Queen street / King street. Spacious room and updated bathroom with large shower. No bathtub but who takes baths in a hotel anyway? Odd there were no closets built in the wall and relied on custom furniture with clothes cabinets. Hotel is on a street corner and parking is a problem. You can either try and find a parking space on the street or go to a public garage. Valet only parking is available next door but due to limited space they prefer to pack the cars in themselves. Wine and cheese at 5pm and milk and cookies at 9pm give a nice home style feeling.

Nice Location

Posted Apr 19, 2017
Pros: LOCATION, Location, Location and friendly staff!
Cons: New bar tender and musician on rooftop - also add canopy so everyone has shade.
Location: The bay is just across the street with beautiful fountains, great walking/relaxing. Nearly everything is within walking distance. Great Location!
We enjoyed being across the street from the Bay and fountains. We had a nice view of the bay and enjoyed morning and evening walks along the beautiful park, all just across the street. Breakfast provided was okay. Roof Top music & drinks not good & it was hot!. Cookies provided each evening were good. Excellent location to all downtown attractions! The staff was VERY friendly and accommodating. Overall I would recommend and not hesitate staying here again.

Nice hotel in great location.

Posted Mar 28, 2017 on Orbitz
Enjoyed being next to waterfront park with easy walks to Battery, market, historic streets and houses. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Room was very nice....only complaint was side chairs were uncomfortable. The included breakfasts and 24 hour coffee and tea were great. Would recommend to a friend and would stay again should we return to Charleston.
