The hotel was under a remodel but we were put in a room that had already been remodeled. Bed and pillows were comfortable. Couch was comfortable at all.

Thank you for your comments. We apologize for any inconveniences you experienced due to the renovations! Our new rooms are beautiful, as you found, but there are some "growing pains".

Hotels in Charleston are seriously expensive,so this being cheaper is a few miles outside, but very easy to get onto Charleston. Our room was spacious and quiet and had been modernized and was really light and felt modern. Good beds. Only reason for not giving it 5 stars was that when we were there, the breakfast room was being modernized...
