Great stay!
Love this hotel and have stayed here many times! Good location and very nice staff! The only problem is I wish the air conditioner vent was up in the ceiling so that it would cool the room down faster.

Good value, smallest bathroom
Super good location, but it's an old hotel. Don't expect anything modern inside - everything will look old and historic. I know many people like that but it's not our thing. Bathroom was probably the smallest you can imagine. Parking garage ($20/night) is right next to the hotel but requires you to go outside of the hotel to the public garage next door.

First visit to Charleston
Excellent service from staff. The hotel lobby is classically elegant. Our room had nice furnishings, but was a bit small. The bathroom was terribly disappointing - it was dark and cramped with only a shower.
