This southern belle, a peach-tinged mansion with black shutters and gracious white balconies, has been laying on the charm since the 1860s. Regal fountains, tropical plants and an outdoor hot tub encourage guests to relax Low Country style. Rooms romance with elegant armoires, hardwood floors and four-poster beds. And after an afternoon around frozen-in-time Charleston, perhaps on a free hotel bike, nearby 82 Queen restaurant will deliver gourmet eats like pistachio and parmesan-crusted scallops to savor in-room.
In the Area
Located on historic Queen Street, it’s easy to get lulled into the sweet tea pace of Charleston’s genteel charms. Historic promenades, stately colonnaded homes and streets lined in palm trees and Spanish moss make it a perfect city for strolling. Shop for 18th and 19th century furniture and décor at Tucker Payne Antiques. Tour gracious Civil War–era plantations like Drayton Hall, Middleton Place, and Boone Hall or take in a show at Dock Street Theatre, America’s oldest playhouse. Charleston has led the way in the renaissance of Southern food. Taste your way through its innovative kitchens by scoring tables at the James Beard chef-helmed McCrady’s, the hip locavore FIG and Bon Appetit favorite Husk.
How to Get There
I stayed four nights at the Elliott House Inn in their king courtyard room on the third floor. I had a wonderful time. Staff was excellent, room was comfortable. Complimentary breakfast delivered to my room each morning was delicious. The evening complimentary wine and cheeses is a very nice touch. I recommend and would definitely stay there again.
I would not recommend this hotel. The room was nice, but we could hear the people in the room next door as if they were standing in our room (no exaggeration!!). The clanging of the dishes next door at the restaurant are noisy as well. It was only quiet enough to sleep at midnight. We were offered towels to take to the beach, when we got to the beach we realized they were old rag towels stained and ripped... gross. The bikes are average at best...and the front desk had one good staff member, the other two were useless. We had to figure things out for ourselves - which is fine... but I watched someone check in and get a much better welcome than we did! If this hotel was cheaper I would understand - INVEST in your hotel and maybe people will leave better reviews.
Elliott House has perfect location to experience the heart of Charleston. Lovely hospitality and free breakfasts make for relaxing mornings. Free bicycles are the best way to see the sites and get around easily.
