    Here for an educational meeting. Great location in historic Charleston. Easy walking to dining, shopping, tours. Nice neighborhood. Would stay here again on my own choosing! Nestled amongst the College of Charleston campus, but not that many students in the King Street area.

    Cold room. Great wifi. Very, very, very unhappy with front desk clerk. I had a problem with my online registration, and the clerk could NOT have cared less. Service otherwise was very good. Food was average for an establishment of this classification.
