We stayed here for our friends birthday and the staff was phenomenal. Kevin made sure we were taken care of, Elizabeth at Frannie and the Fox made the best drinks, and Daniel was so helpful when we checked out. Favorite day was riding the hotel bikes around the city, and drinks out on the courtyard. Highly recommend, and definitely will be back!

Hotel's Favourite
Everything during our stay at Emeline was absolutely beautiful. Not only was the decor and aesthetic perfect, but everyone we came in contact with was so friendly and welcoming. Kevin was awesome and even sent us home with some goodies for the road trip back to Charlotte. The restaurant (Frannie and the Fox) is always one of our highlights when visiting- highly recommend the Negroni and tomato toast 🙂 They have kept the small details in mind when curating the hotel. Things like the water bottles in the gym for after a sweaty Peloton ride, the water stations for easy refills on every floor, free room service coffee and cute bike rentals to scoot around town on really make your stay extra special. Can’t wait to come back!

Stayed here for one night on a Saturday and the hotel was quite busy. Lots of people checking in, going to the restaurant (Which has a wonderful outdoor eating area if that is a requirement for you), hanging out in the lobby. Walking in first thought was "Wow! It's beautiful!" Check in was great, the gentleman was super friendly and offered us a welcome drink. Super cute lobby shop with original items to purchase. I wish i could say i loved our room, but it was on the first floor at the end of a REALLY long hallway. No view out of the window because the window was completely covered by a screen with plants covering it. I can see why they did that though because from what i heard all night there is a courtyard right there where people hang out and enjoy cocktails. That covered up window combined with very little lighting meant i couldn't get a room picture i liked. Great location, within walking of great restaurant's and tourist attractions. Complimentary coffee in an adorable caddie delivered to the room in the morning by pressing "0" Would i stay here again? Sure! I'd just ask for a different area of the hotel.

Stayed with our 3 teenagers for the weekend in a suite with 2 Kings and a separate little living room with a pullout sofa. The staff is incredibly attentive and nice. Complementary coffee service each morning, and the location cannot be beat- on Market between King Street and East Bay walking distance to everything including College of Charleston! Don’t miss Emeline!

We had a wonderful stay at the Emeline this weekend! Great hospitality from the moment we pulled up to the hotel. Complimentary welcome drink upon arrival was a fun surprise. We had drinks at the hotel bar before dinner and they were great as well. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go downtown thanks to the excellent location. Loved the complimentary coffee delivery to the room in the morning. Would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Charleston!
