The Emeline was an elegant mix of Charleston tradition and modern-day convenience. The atmosphere was upscale and a great place to unwind.

The Emeline is an upscale but comfortable hotel. The location is perfect for walking/exploring Charleston. Every member of the staff we encountered was courteous. I will definitely stay here again.

This property would appeal to millennials and is very cool, however not very functional. For example the shower has very slick tile in it and I actually slipped and fell in it when I was washing my hair. Luckily I was not injured. Then there are things like the noise outside our window until one and two in the morning and the street cleaning truck at 4:30 in the morning. Another example is the reading lights on each side of the bed. They are about 4 feet over your head. The wattage is very low and they do not function as reading lights. They are retro and cool but not functional. Overall I would probably not stay here again because of all these issues.
