Great stay

We had a great stay here! We booked a deluxe king room and I highly recommend those. Large room with a lovely private balcony and huge bathroom. Air conditioning worked perfectly. It felt a bit damp at times but I attribute that to the overall heat and humidity of Charleston in August. The last day I became ill with either food poisoning (don’t eat at Hyman’s), or a stomach bug and the assistant general manager let us have a 2pm check out at no charge. The free parking was great and the breakfast was good and affordable. We used the pool once in the evening which was nice and got drinks at the bar as well, which we enjoyed. 2 cons; the bedsheets don’t stay on the beds (too small maybe) and the front desk staff of young girls need to be better trained at handling customer problems. I went up to the desk our last day and asked for a 2pm check out since I was ill (and visibly so), and when the girl called the manager she never explained why I was asking, she just made it sound like I had no reason for the request, and I was told absolutely no. I’m not sure what changed as later the assistant general manager called my room and told me yes and asked if I needed anything, which was so appreciated. All in all I would stay here again!

A rip-off for $279 a night

Charleston is one of my favorite cities, and I usually stay at the Belmond. A friend picked this hotel, and I was hopeful since the exterior looked great. The only upside to this hotel was the friendly front desk staff (shout out to Julia) and breakfast server. There is no proper bar / restaurant on premises. The pool was dirty with uncomfortable lounge chairs. We had a double room, which was one of the tiniest I have ever stayed in.

Since there are no do not disturb signs which you can hang on the door, we requested that housekeeping please not come in the am (we were already woken up once). The front desk gentlemen confirmed that he entered this request in the system, along with a late checkout (noon). The following morning, not only did I get a knock on my door at 9 am from housekeeping, but got harassed by the same housekeeper at 11:30 am about checking out. I told her to please leave me alone. When I checked out at 12 pm, she was waiting outside to scold me. Absolutely unprofessional behavior from hotel and housekeeping.

Additionally, the subpar bathroom and cheap bed covers aren’t worth the hefty price tag. Stay away.

Very nice common areas

The place was nice and the common areas were very well decorated. The rooms were nice, but now what I expected for the price. We were quite surprised that there was a mobile air unit in our room that was loosely secured. The location was safe and the rooms were newly renovated.
