Thank you Megan!

Chose that hotel because of the artwork throughout. It's lovely, not too large. The staff was wonderful. It's very old so if you need something very modern this is definitely not the hotel for you. It's in the middle of the French Quarter and within easy walking distance of the Market and numerous restaurants and art galleries.

Tried to check out at 3:45 am. Taxi on time. NO STAFF available to check out even though I was assured there would be. Very upsetting and ended our visit on a down note!

Thank you for staying with us

This hotel was located in two separate buildings,one accross the street from the other. If you have the misfortune of having your room in the secondary building you have virtually zero amenities. The restaurant, bar and even the morning coffee are all accross the street. This situation made me feel like a second class citizen and was very disappointing.

I loved being in the old part of Charleston. Staff was so accommodating and pleasant. The Inn is lovely. The only thing that I wasn’t happy about was having a room without a window. I realize that was why I got a good price!! However, probably wouldn’t do a room without a window again!!! Beautiful city! Look forward to another fun trip! Food is amazing!!! Thank you!

Awesome hotel, nice hotel staff, especially the front desk staff. Bed was a little uncomfortable. Staff at the rooftop bar were very rude. Great location within walking distance to most things.

Danielle, Thank you for the kind words about the majority of our staff. I'm sorry to hear you had a negative interaction with someone at the Rooftop as this is very much out of the ordinary. We are constantly working to improve the property and mattresses are on the list. I hope that you will come and visit with us again very soon. Kind regards, Tarleton McManus - Asst. General Manager
