At the coveted junction of Charleston’s French Quarter and Market Street districts, The Spectator Hotel is a 1920s-inspired property ideal for trendy couples or the savvy business traveler. The hotel is continuously applauded for its distinctive blend of vintage-glamour interiors, contemporary accommodations and traditional Southern hospitality.

Past guests rave attentive assistance of the personalized butler staff that provide traditional services, including packing and unpacking, light pressing and nightly turndown -- timeless courtesies that other modern hotels have opted to replace with do-it-yourself amenities.

In addition, The Spectator offers the expected conveniences of a boutique hotel: complimentary Wi-Fi, gourmet continental breakfast room service, welcome cocktails, 24-hour valet and concierge, and expedited check-in and checkout. Guests should take advantage of the hotel's complimentary bike rentals to explore the city.

The 41 sleek guestrooms and suites start at 382 square feet and are equipped with the latest gadgets, from Bluetooth connectivity and smart TVs to heated towel racks and unassuming directional reading lamps.

The Bar is the hotel's cocktail lounge, where cleverly named beverages like the Fizz-gerald are mixed up by devastatingly cool mixologists. The Instagram-worthy setting is decorated with rich wood accents, artwork, tufted leather chairs and ceiling-high bookcases.

While there is no on-site restaurant at the hotel, The Bar serves small plates, and the hotel is less than a five-minute walk to Charleston's historic City Market, with great dining hall restaurants and vendors.

We were snowed in the days of our stay. It was a warm and inviting location since we spent most of our time in the bar/lobby area, or in our room.
Other Comments
Because of the snow storm the hotel's suppliers of the breakfast items did not send the usual fare. It would have been nice if the hotel had anticipated this and had something other than grocery store bagels in the morning.

I really enjoyed the bar area atmosphere and the craft cocktails offered were unique and delicious. The rooms were nicely appointed. The staff was always friendly. It was very nice to have coffee and breakfast delivered to you by the butlers.
