If you can request a room away from the gates do so,m because they kept us up all night. Other than that and the wrong price given over the phone, it was an okay stay with a good location close to downtown.

Hotel's Favourite
Everything about our stay was perfect. Thanks to Jon and Octavia in reception for excellent service. The room was clean and spacious and all the furnishings were new. We had the king suite. The free parking is awesome. Part of the lot is covered and part of the lot is open. You scan in and out of the parking with your room key card. I also used the laundry while I was there. The machines were clean, $1.25 to wash a load and $1.25 to dry. Good value. The hotel is about 7 mins from the historic district. I drove in to visit the Charleston Museum. I also drove to the McLeod plantation (9 mins) and to Folly beach (~18 mins but it was cloudy! Lol). There is a Publix close by where we got some drinks and snacks. Overall a fantastic place to stay in Charleston and I would highly recommend.

Stayed in room 332 with a balcony facing the water. Excellent room, very clean, the staff treated us with respect. Very few hotels around Charleston offer free on site parking so this was a plus as well. I wish we could have experienced the roof top restaurant as well as the free shuttles to downtown but it's understandable during covid. The only thing is the mattress could have been updated. It was not the most comfortable. Everything else was perfect.

It was first time we were in Charleston, SC. Booked our room in Hilton app using my points. The hotel is in a nice location, close enough to downtown via a short car drive. I liked the covered and free parking available. Definitely recommend this hotel.

Hello Luisa G, I am so sorry to hear about your experience at the property. That is certainly not our standard. It was very unfortunate that we did attempt to move you to another room the following day, but you were not available to move rooms, which I'm sure added to your frustration. I again sincerely apologize for your experience. Best, Holly Shafer- Assistant General Manager
