Pros: The valet staff was very courteous.
Cons: Everything.
Location: Charleston is a fabulous city with many great restaurants and activities.
The hotel staff was not interested in making this a good experience. We checked in early and were told our room would be put at the top of the list to be cleaned and they would call when it was ready. They never called and we finally got in right at the "guaranteed" check in time of 4:00pm by going to the front desk and asking if the room was ready. Saturday night, after 10:00pm, the people in the room above us were unbelievably loud. We called the front desk twice to ask the staff to intervene. During the second call I stated that if nothing was done I would go up and speak to them myself. I was told that was my "prerogative." I did have to go upstairs since the noise continued unabated. I asked the parents to stop their children from jumping off the beds onto the floor. Unfortunately, the noise continued off and on until midnight. There are many wonderful hotels and inns in Charleston and we will find one of them for our next visit.

I feel that this was a centrally located hotel. Everything was in walking distance even the parking garage. The courtyard was perfect for relaxing, having a drink or just enjoying the day. A truly wonderful experienc!

Character hotel in excellent position, comfortable well appointed rooms. Sherry and cookies each day is a nice touch. Parking is offsite at $12 day so best to leave car behind rather than retrieve it each day. This is a timeshare-style property and there is a hard sell element to it - you are repeatedly offered tours of the property with up to $150 to listen to a 90 minute sales presentation.
