How to Get There
I wrote a review a few weeks ago but forgot to mention how much we liked and appreciated the cookies and cold lemonade offered in the hotel lobby. They were delightful after coming back tired from a day of sightseeing. I believe in order to have edited my original review, I had to delete it. So I will try to recall what I wrote:
My two friends and I stayed in the Townhouse which was spacious and clean. The first floor had a sofa-bed, cot and half bath; the second floor had a comfortable king size bed and nice full bath. If you have difficulty climbing stairs, DO NOT book the Townhouse as there are two flights of stairs to go up before you even get to the first floor of the unit. In late afternoon, complimentary wine and appetizers were offered across the street on the rooftop terrace and in the mornings, a complimentary breakfast was also served. The hostesses of both events were always friendly, cheerful and efficient. The breakfast was just okay; the individual quiches were quite salty but the muffins and assorted pastries were good. Some of the hotel office staff could use a bit of "personality training" as they were lacking in friendliness and cheerfulness bordering on the "snooty" side.
Lovely old hotel embodying Charleston of yore. Not fancy or ultra modern but has all the amenities one needs for comfort. The breakfast on the rooftop was inspired and views are great. Lobby has coffee and snacks and staff was professional and efficient and helpful. Rooms are on small side but very comfortable beds. We had two floor suite. Upstairs and downstairs with kitchen area provided lots of room and a private outdoor patio overlooking the city. Great location.
We spent 2 nights at this wonderful inn. We splurged and got a king suite overlooking the street. The room was spacious and very comfortable. The soaking tub was a welcome indulgence after a day of walking. The breakfast and cocktail hour on the rooftop deck were an added bonus.
This hotel was a great location for everything within historic Charleston. We were able to walk from the hotel current location within 10 - 15 minutes. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The continental breakfast was varied and filling, served on an outside terrace which was nice because it wasn't too hot. They do have an indoor site for overflow or when it does get warm outside. The rooms were spacious and the bed comfortable. We paid for the valet parking because it was easier and cheaper in the long run.
I have mixed feelings about this place. On the website it looked a bit more deluxe than it really was. Upon our arrival the room was not ready yet and the valet guy who is also the bellman did not seem to know what to do with our luggage. We were greeted at reception with someone who did not seem that interested in helping us. The rooms were a bit small but the beds were very comfortable. The biggest disappointment was the breakfast. The coffee was so bad I could not drink it, the pastries were dried out and seemed stale, the mini quiches were so unappealing I could not eat them and the cut up fresh fruit looked like it had been sitting our for days and did not include much variety. In other words, they need to start from scratch with this breakfast. Also at they charge $25 per night to part a car which is overpriced. On the positive side, this is a great location close to everything in Charleston.
