Overall the property was very nice and we enjoyed the rooftop bar, harbor view and pool. Unfortunately the bed was hard as a ROCK and by the third night we could barely sleep on it. I’ve never been to a Hilton in which the bed was so uncomfortable. It’s unfortunate that most hotels have gone to not routinely cleaning rooms but by request only. Hilton has gone to cleaning every 5th day which is a bit too long. Nice hotel, very clean unfortunately very hard uncomfortable bed.

This hotel was super comfortable and had all the amenities I needed during my stay. It was a convenient location, only 10 minutes or so from downtown Charleston.
