The service was impeccable, the staff friendly, from start to finish. Our suite was quiet and comfortable. I've read complaints about the parking fee, but the valet service is very good. You're on vacation, why endure the hassle of parking in downtown Charleston? Rosie in housekeeping did an exceptional job of making sure our room had everything we needed for...

Hotel is excellently located in Charleston. We have stayed here years ago and it needs some updating and we understand it will be undergoing an update. The staff were all very helpful. We were pleased to have a room off of the courtyard which was perfect for our conference since it was close to our sessions. The room was clean....

Great location and friendly staff. On the downside, my room was extremely tiny. My husband and I were there for 5 days in this cramped room and could barely move around. The bathroom was even smaller and outdated. Had I known how small it was, I would have upgraded. But it was too late to make the changes when we...

Quick stop in Charleston, we stayed in the heart of the Historic District. We were pleasantly surprised with a wonderful upgrade to a king suite, room 581. Bed was wonderful, room was clean and the service was amazing. The only downside was a faulty wired socket or blow dryer that continued to short out and wasn't usable. However, the bed,...

This hotel has two things going for it: location and a great staff. Otherwise, honestly, it's in pretty miserable shape. I was rather shocked honestly. this was a girls' weekend and I booked a suite for us in case the weather was bad and also so we had some space. Specifically, I booked the bi-level suite which looked interesting. Well,...

The Doubletree was a really nice place to stay for a long weekend. The location cannot be beat, right next to the Market which is walking distance from most places.
