We stayed here on this past Sunday night. The rates were cut in half because Sunday was the only day we were going to be there so it was a great deal. Check in was great until we went to a room that was already taken, but we were alright with going back to get our real room number because...

Thank-you for reviewing us here at the Holiday Inn Charleston Historic Downtown. We certainly do apologize for you being sent to an occupied room. My front desk agent wrote the wrong room number down mistakenly. I'm just glad that no one was in the room, so it wasn't an awkward situation for you and your party. All of our rooms...

We stayed 5 nights here. Our room was very well equipped even down to face cloths, mouthwash etc. The room also had a fridge and safe. Excellent breakfast. Unfortunately dinner was not good and in our opinion to be avoided. One dessert was so burnt that it was removed from our bill. A free shuttle bus service stops right outside...

Beautiful hotel, good location. When I booked the hotel I wasn't aware that there is a $19/day valet parking fee. This really is your only option for parking unless you want to park on the street which I word not recommend. No complaints though--the staff was extremely friendly and helpful, especially Faith at the front desk. There is a trolley...

This is what you get when the maid spends less than three minutes cleaning. I had no problem waiting, it would have been better than finding fingernail clippings on the carpet. Not to mention dirty footprints on the bathroom floor, along with a dead bug. What scares me is what I'm not seeing. It's a shame because it could have...

This hotel was very well situated in Charleston. We walked to all historical sites. The room was clean, the staff knowledgeable and helpful. The lobby was equipped with seating for a crowd and a self-help coffee station was available 24/7. Shana in housekeeping was particularly accommodating as was Faith at the front desk.

We got a nice room with a queen size bed and a nice bathroom with many bathroom products. There is some construction nearby, but our room was quiet. It was also clean and bed was comfortable. We got in late and left late, but we were so lucky that we found a parking spot of the side of the hotel.
