The staff made the visit extremely enjoyable. From the front desk to the maids, valets and Sylvie in the Swamp Fox restaurant. Everyone went out of their way to accommodate my wife and I

The room was comfortable, however the bathroom was small. It was tight when moving around the sink and commode. The hotel was undergoing a renovation but it was not evident anytime you were in the hotel or your room.

The hotel is in a terrific location where shopping and restaurants and bars abound. The included breakfast was excellent - anything at all could be chosen from the breakfast menu. We also enjoyed the amenities of wine and delicious chocolate truffles. It's a big plus to have a Starbucks off the lobby as well.

The room was nicely furnished, and the mattresses were exceptionally comfortable. The only drawback was the REALLY small bathroom, but it was bright enough with a full size tub, and the shower head worked wonderfully.

It’s a 100 year old Hotel. Go with this in mind and understand logistics of small bathrooms, still spotless. Our room was large, 1 bed, very nice, had safe, refrigerator & coffee maker which we never used because coffee/ hot water for tea in lobby every morning. Nice touch because nothing is comped in Charleston. Flavored water & cookies afternoon. Renovation work on exterior affected 1 wall only. Interior unaffected. Starbucks in hotel lobby. Adjacent corners have Walgreens Drug store and park with year long events. We did self park for convenience and had 0 problems.
