The Embassy Suites Charleston-Historic Charleston blends seamlessly with its historic surroundings, because it is an integral part of them. Housed in a building that was once the Citadel Military College, some rooms even have original gun ports. 

This all-suite hotel is loaded with extras, including free Wi-Fi in guestrooms and public areas, daily complimentary made-to-order breakfast, and a reception every evening with drinks and snacks. The hotel's airy atrium offers a place to sit and relax, or take a dip in the outdoor pool (open seasonally).

The surrounding area is packed with history, and the building itself is designated as a national historic site. Wander two blocks to the visitors center to gather ideas for dining, shopping and exploring the city.

From the Press:
  • "Handsome teak and mahogany furniture and sisal rugs in the common areas recall the British-colonial era" -- Fodor's
  • "Adjacent to Marion Square, where guests can visit the Saturday morning farmer’s market, shop art sales and watch seasonal movies on the lawn" --
  • "The Historic Downtown location and the large suites -- complete with separate living rooms, wet bars, mini-fridges, and microwaves -- are the highlight" --
