Enjoyed Most: The bargain price for the room!
Other Comments: The hotel is in an area that is not yet fully gentrified. It is not as close to the visitors' center as I had supposed. We took the little trolleys all the time in prior city visits, but could not this time. But we did have our car. so all was well.

Enjoyed Most: The staff was amazing especially the chef. He went overboard to bring up an appetizer that he wasn't supposed to have ready until later in the evening. Every person that we dealt with was super friendly and helpful. Will definitely go back at some point.

Enjoyed Most: I enjoyed the food at the hotel more than I had expected to. Charleston is awash in fine restaurants, but on several occasions, we decided to just eat in. Dinner was tapas and crab soup--the best we had all 4 days.
Other Comments: The voucher was taken without any hesitation and we were accorded every amenity just as though we were paying full price. This was our first Travelzoo voucher, and will use one again should the opportunity come up. Thanks.
