The staff at the hotel is unwelcoming, unfriendly, condescending and hateful. I was on a trip with my elderly mother who had been looking forward for years to showing me Charleston, a place she had fond memories of. The disdain and scorn we were treated with my the staff definitely put a damper on our stay. As we left, even my mother said "Those are some unpleasant people". They go out of their way to make you feel unwanted - they talk over you and answer your questions before you finish asking (just to let you know they've heard this question a million times), they smirk and condescend when you ask for a restaurant recommendation, they went out of their way to be so rude, and I still don't understand why. We weren't rude to them at all. My mother is diabetic and has to have diet soda, she likes diet 7up so I went to the grocery next door to get it for her. She wanted a cocktail so I tried to explain to the front desk what she needed, but they just talked over me. I could tell they were very bothered by my request and the gentleman who worked the front desk smirked at me and looked directly into my eyes as he poured the entire contents of a small bottle of vodka into her glass as I was trying to explain to him that she could just have a little bit. It was a horrid, horrid experience. If you want to feel welcomed in Charleston, do not stay at this hotel. The hotel is clean, and the amenities are fine. It has a nice rooftop deck, but you will not be treated well.

Comment from Hotel Management

May 17, 2021 by AnsonboroughInn

I am beyond shocked to read this review. I am so sorry that you experienced anything less than stellar customer service and am so disappointed that I didn't hear about this while you were here and have a chance to help in some way. I hope that you realize that what experienced is not at all typical of our customer service and there is no excuse for what you are telling me about. I know that I personally interacted with you at least once, when you asked if there was Diet 7-up in the bar and then you asked if Harris Teeter carried it, to which I said Yes. I hope that our interaction did not in any way contribute to your poor experience. When you came back, we got your lemon sliced by the Wine & Cheese attendant and Jonathan poured the drink and we placed your remaining lemons in the fridge for safekeeping. I cannot say how sorry I am that all the interactions with my staff left you lacking. I would be happy to speak with you personally if you would like to discuss this further. Again, my sincerest apologies to you and your mother. Carrie Huston, manager

The whole place was unique, and we loved the history about it. The staff was very welcoming, and the high ceilings and beautiful exposed beams and bricks were beautiful! Liked the availability of tea and coffee all day, and the rooftop area was wonderful! Our executive suite was awesome! Thanks!
