The Lowdown

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.

I had the pleasure of being a guest at this fine inn while my husband and I were traveling the southern coast from Pennsylvania. This was our first visit to Charleston. The inn was a perfect place to stay. It was within walking distance to all of the downtown attractions. The serene waterfront, city market, great shopping on King St were all so close!!
The restaurants were abundant as well. The inn provided a light breakfast each morning and an evening wine and cheese gathering. One evening boiled peanuts were offered- my first time trying them and they were delish!!
Neal was a wealth of information and answered all of our questions with great detail.
I would highly recommend this inn.
Parking was also convenient just a few steps away for $20/day.
Charleston is a beautiful place and I hope to visit again in the near future.

Ashley and her team are extremely attentive, amazing charming Inn in the very heart of beautiful historic Charleston, the Elliott House Inn is by far the hotel to spend a sweet holiday. The second floor king bed room with elevator service we stayed in #24 was in the perfect location looking down on their beautiful pergola covered courtyard was a great choice. Very southern chic and very comfortable. Continental breakfast in the courtyard ever morning and sunset wine and cheese party was so sweet. Still hungry? how about room service from 5 star 82 Queen Restaurant in our room! Finally concierge service & complimentary bike rentals. Stay here is a genuine treat. Thanks again, can't wait to fly back and stay longer next time. PS parked car across the street

I come here to Charleston for business, but I stay at the Elliot House because it’s a vacation. Wonderful southern hospitality in a down town location. So laid back and romantic. Absolutely great. Classy. Genteel. Wonderful.

Park in the municipal parking across the tiny street. It’s a little hard to find. Slow down and be patient - you’re in the south. Savor the experience.
