Rooms & Rates
Edgar Allan Poe spent weekends at this location (then the Pavilion Hotel) when enlisted at Fort Moultrie in the late 1820s, penning "The Gold-Bug." Now, guests can relax amid old-style Southern charm and modern amenities at the King Charles Inn.
Southern-style rooms feature dark wood furniture, flat-screen TVs, Gilchrist & Soames toiletries and Keurig coffeemakers. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the property, and all guests can take advantage of free covered parking, a rarity in this popular small city.
The outdoor pool area includes a small swimming pool, sundeck and covered terrace where guests can relax after a day of sightseeing. Hotel guests receive complimentary passes to Eco Fitness, a state-of-the-art gym with cycling and fitness classes around the corner from the hotel.
An evening reception is held daily, treating guests to cheese, crackers and olives; drink specials are available. The on-site restaurant serves breakfast daily.
Trendy restaurants are steps from the hotel's front door in the popular Historic District, as are museums and shops. The Aiken-Rhett House is a 15-minute walk away, and the East Battery promenade -- Charleston's southernmost point, where Confederate soldiers mounted cannons to defend the city against the Union -- is a 20-minute walk away.
