Walls are thin, but the food is amazing
We had the bad luck of staying at the hotel during construction/renovations on days where the whether peaked around 105 degrees causing you to run to your room with the AC running high. The noise was a bit much especially when you have a napping toddler. The hallway noise was also very very loud and there were moments where we could hear EVERYTHING.... Especially in the bathroom... The room service was amazing. The food was amazing. The hotel was beautiful. The location is spot on. Even with it's shortcomings I still high recommend this hotel.

Southern Charm, History & Comfort
Southern Charm hotel for sure! Toni (front desk) was very helpful and friendly, helping us with questions as it was our first time in Charleston. The room reminds me of a southern-style, charming, upper-class feel that you would see in the 50s. The color scheme of the bright blue and white rooms complement one another so well. The bathrooms are very small with no counter space, but furniture in the room makes up for table space. The only downside: renovations downstairs at the Starbucks with an approx. 7:3am construction start time, hammering away. You do need to understand that it is a Monday and people work, but the walls are so thin and you can hear everything - even on the 4th floor.
