Nothing really special about this hotel, my room was alright, the bathroom is weird, the sink and mirror and table were all outside of the bathroom so it was just blank and empty besides the toilet and shower, there was mold all over the bathroom ceiling as well, which didn't really look great to me, our view was okay, we got to watch people swim in the pool and sit in the sitting area outside, I don't personally like to be so close to people that I can't look out my window without being watched but I'm sure the rooms with balconies had better views. I think the price was fair, this was honestly the first hotel I've been to where I didn't get some kind of information book or paper or anything when I checked in so I didn't know anything about wifi or I think there was a restaurant inside the hotel or if there were hours for the swimming pool.

Nice Hotel Close to downtown

Great hotel except the cleaning staff would yell back-and-forth down the hallway every time they went bye. Not just one day but every day of our stay. I just thought it was unprofessional

Disappointed

I thought this was going to be a beautiful hotel over looking the harbor .... well to start we got the wrong room which overlooked the highway..... second they were doing construction so there were obstacles around the hotel.... than there was no continental breakfast or even coffee... the maid forgot us two days leaving us without towels or toilet paper.... one good thing is the staff were amazing ....

Lisa, Thank you for taking the time to evaluate our hotel. We apologize for the frustrations you experienced with the view and added construction from the highway as I'm sure this was not what you expected with waterfront property. We will also share the feedback of no breakfast and coffee. Though we are pleased with the feedback about our amazing staff, we want to make sure we are thorough with our bathroom preparation and necessities with our housekeeping department. You are a valued customer, and everything we do is aimed at providing you with an excellent experience. Thank you again for being our guest, and we hope you'll choose us on your next visit to the area. Mark Thomas General Manager

Beautiful location, but...

Room was not very clean - towel had blood stain on it. Hair in the floor of the bathroom. Everything was expensive - $2 for a small bag of chips, no free breakfast and room rate was quite expensive. Tons of places to stay in Charleston at that rate.

Nice hotel but there were issues

This is a work in progress hotel. There is construction going on so there is confusion as to where to go to check in. Speaking of checking in, we were delayed by almost an hour because of "cleaning issues". However we were able to sit out on the veranda and enjoy the 76 degree temperatures. The room was clean and updated. Overall a nice property to stay on. Hopefully they will get through the construction quickly and straighten out their cleaning issues.

A true southern welcome

Pros: Layout; large patio and lounge areas for relaxing; comfortable rooms.
Location: Easy to get downtown by car, or via the hotel shuttle. The airport is about 20 min north-there are express buses and fixed-price taxis to downtown.
This hotel has a very peaceful feel as it overlooks a marina and the Ashley River. The staff are all very friendly and attentive. Though it is located away from the main downtown area they provide regular shuttle service.

Location

Pros: The hotel was recently updated and in nice condition. I am a picky person and it met all expectations.
Cons: It was wonderful. No complaints.
Location: Location stated was misleading. But once you get to historic Charleston there are museums, carriage rides, galleries, shopping, LOTS of great food.
While the hotel says that it is in "Historic Charleston" it is not. It is however vary close and the fact that the hotel has a shuttle makes up for the misleading location description. They do charge $6 per day for the shuttle but it is well worth it. I think it should be free as the location is not right on but for the price I do not think you could do better.
