This was my second visit to Charleston in the past year and both times I have stayed at this Holiday Inn. This visit was a disappointment. My room was in desperate need of renovation. The sheer curtains were ripped and torn and it didn't appear that anyone had checked the condition of the room in quite some time. While the...

We were pleased with this hotel choice as it was reasonably priced and very close to a free city shuttle. Our car wasn't necessary for most activities. Parking is limited so we had to pay for valet service who parked our car in a garage. We only had to call the front desk before leaving our room and the car...

This hotel is superbly laid out with guests rooms away from the main street. We were on the second floor poolside, which was another surprise. There is a lap pool with several tables and lounges tucked on the back side of this gem. The staff are like family within minutes. A couple blocks from the Visitors Center and Charleston Museum....

This is a well appointed property with an excellent staff. Robin at the front desk is so professional and helpful! The rooms are very clean and feel new. Common areas are the same. The location is within walking distance of South of Broad if you are prepared to walk 1/2 a mile or more-- which for some is no problem....

Very disappointed in the housekeeping quality of this hotel. I would have changed rooms, but all these things came at me bit by bit, just adding up over time. When I arrived in the room, the first thing I noticed was crumbs on the carpet. They were cookie or muffin, or something like that. I picked several off the carpet....

First let me tell you what is right about the hotel: The welcoming staff, desk clerks and valet parking staff. The room appointments were almost perfect. I say almost because there was no microwave in the room which would have greatly facilitated our need to reheat leftovers without needing to leave the room and travel down five floors to do...

Clean, up to date. A little farther from the historic district than we were expecting, but the free tour buses fixed that. Just a block from King Street. Lots of construction on both sides makes the area a little dusty and congested. Nice, friendly, helpful staff.

I spent three nights here last year and two nights here this year. It's a great hotel with fantastic service and comfortable accomodations. The pool is also nice to hang out by in warm weather. Perfect location a block from King Street. Anything you'd want to do downtown is easily within walking distance.
