Not convenient when you are checking into the property across the street. There should be a check in for each property, not just one. Very confusing not organized properly.

The check in with wine and an escort to your room explaining all of the amenities was great. The room was spacious and decorated in great taste. The sherry bottle for night caps was a great touch.

Perfect location - off the beaten path but right next to everything. Unique amenities - free bikes, rooftop bar, excellent adjoining restaurant, happy hour with art tour, better than average artisanal breakfast, late nightcap - cookies and milk Excellent staff - everyone knew our name and whereabouts

Awesome hotel

Pros: Absolutely fantastic staff, Marc was a true gem with all his help, also the fellow who did Marc job in afternoon was great but don't remember his name
Cons: Not a thing, completely satisfied.
Location: Everything we wanted to do was close, great historical area, enjoyed carriage tour, felt safe. Harbor tour wasn't what we expected.
We wanted a hotel close to everything so we didn't have to drive is a strange city. It worked out great with parking just around the corner and everything close that we wanted to take in.

Best historic downtown hotel!

Pros: It is a beautiful hotel and the artwork is amazing!
Cons: I am sure that something can be improved on perfection but I am at a loss.
Location: Just about everything in downtown is in walking distance. Absolutely great location!
This was our second trip to Charleston and the first staying downtown. We have never been treated better or have found friendlier staff! The first night we didn't have hot water because of equipment failure the staff was apologetic and did everything they could and even moved us to a better room. Everyone was helpful and seemed to enjoy their jobs. This will be our hotel again some day.
