In order to have great views of the yacht club, make sure you have an odd room #. One bad thing about the rooms, the tv's had a max on the volume so it was hard to hear at times on certain channels.

Room Tip: Make sure you get an odd number and the lower the end number the closer to the water (401, 405

I choose this hotel for its location since the Spoleto festival was going on and thought it would be quieter. It was. However, this hotel is very hard to find at night and the directions I was given put me at risk of having a major accident. There are no streets lights nor lighted signs directing you to the hotel. At one point I was trying to find the route and was going the wrong way on a one way street. In spite of this, the hotel was very pleasant and the staff very friendly. Rooms were clean but could stand to be updated. While this is Charleston and an ultra modern hotel would not be in keeping with the Southern style, sofas that sag aren't anyone's style. Frankly, it wouldn't take much to update to some leather that is easier to clean. I did appreciate the shuttle to the historic area. It does have all the features I like, breakfast, laundry, and pool. With a few renovations, it could be outstanding.

Room Tip: Always ask for a quiet location when you book and one with no one booked on either side if possible.

Hotel is very clean. Room clean with plenty of room. Had a room with 2 full size beds. 2 flat screen tvs. Has a microwave and mini-fridge. Plenty of room and nice view of harbor. Staff so helpful and friendly. The only downfall of the hotel is it is out of town. It rained while we were out eating dinner. When we went to return a roadway was flooded on the way back. Parking is difficult in downtown Charleston, so if that would be frustrating for you, pay the extra money and stay downtown. We did find a parking lot next to Old South carriage tours on Anson Street that is only $10 for the day.

Stayed here on a 3 day trip to Charleston. It is not actually in downtown charleston, just across the bridge. It is a short drive and really a great value. The hotel is typical springhill. Relatively new, clean, spacious room. The only thing is that with that concept you might not actually have a bedroom that is closed off from the living area, more like one huge studio. You can get views of the waterway. I think if you are traveling with a family or looking for a value, this is the place to stay. I would actually prefer staying closer to downtown to walk to the different restaurants and bars.

Stayed: September 2011, travelled with friends

I had two suites for 12 ladies for a bachelorette weekend. Amazingly, we had no issues with space with 6 in each room. There was 2 beds and a pull out couch, 2 tvs, 1 bath, microwave, fridge, bar sink. The room was very clean, the beds slept well and the staff was helpful. Aaron (not sure if he is a manager) at the front desk was very nice and helpful at check in and drove the shuttle for us downtown.

We stayed on Memorial weekend (Saturday and Sunday nights). The hotel was full but the only time you really knew it was when you went to breakfast. Breakfast was good with many options, even waffle makers.

The shuttle is a nice feature but it filled up VERY quickly. They have 2 running on Friday and Saturday nights, one any other day from 5-11ish. We had to call a cab company the second day because the shuttle was full. The pick up from downtown (right outside the Noisy Oyster) filled up even quicker and if you are there to party, they stop pick up at 11 something. I have stayed right downtown before and that was nice because you could walk everywhere or hop on a trolley, but they were full this weekend.

The pool was great as well.It was clean and the area around it was clean and well kept. There were chairs to accommodate all of us. We did not get in the hot tub.

I was there for a bachelorette party so I obviously did not see the fitness center.

Parking was free and had plenty of spots - even had a few spaces inside a parking garage attached to the hotel (first come).

Over all, this hotel was great and I would stay there again!

Room Tip: The suite with 2 beds and pull out couch are awesome!
