Sitting high above Charleston is this 15 story Holiday Inn conveniently located just outside the city’s congestion. Having traveled to the City before the location was appealing and all looked good online. Submitting my reservation I added a note requesting a high location to maximize the view, nothing to lose. My wish was maximized by Carolyn at the front desk as our room was on the top lodging floor (#14) and I’m not sure anyone else was on floor. Never had this VIP service before! The room’s view overshadowed any room details but these are noteworthy: 1. The bed was a luxurious king pillow top bed with several comfortable pillows to choose from. 2. The bath had thick luxury type towels not usually found in mid range hotels. 3. The room had all the usual amenities in a minimal design decor. On future trips to Charleston, we will look no further than 301 Savannah Highway!

Hello Jon, Thank you for the review and feedback. We are happy you enjoyed the location. The Charleston Riverview Holiday Inn is a landmark hotel in Charleston and, because the hotel is located on the banks of the Ashley River, the restaurant offers spectacular views of it. Moreover, the location also gives us an edge as it is a shorter access to the best sites in Charleston. Also, providing comfortable accommodations is always a goal so we are happy to know that you were pleased with the bedding. Please know that we genuinely appreciate your business and hope to welcome you again whenever your travels bring you back to Charleston. Have a wonderful day.

I am in town on business every week and was looking for a new place to make a regular place for me to stay. The appearance of this place stands out a bit, and I was interested. The experience however changed my mind on returning. I stood at the window for 10-15 minutes waiting on someone to come check me in. They had a sign up saying the front desk clerk had stepped away and will return shortly. I believe I got the smallest, most awkward room in the hotel. My “river view” was a direct view of the nearby Waffle House and woods across from it. No river could be seen from that room at all! The balcony was not accessible and had been permanently closed. The restaurant had only a few items on the menu, and the hours had changed, and I never got a chance to eat there. I mentioned to the front desk clerk of my displeasure of everything, but she didn’t seem too concerned about it. I doubt I’ll return to this place.

This is an old hotel, could definitely use some updating. The carpet in the common areas were dirty, room flooring was vinyl. Best feature is the rooftop lounge/restaurant. Fantastic view. There was a loud, obnoxious drunk person in the lounge talking at max volume on earbuds. We had to ask the bartender twice to quiet him down, and finally my husband got up and told him to stop the filthy language. Other than that, it was ok. Great view of the harbor

The staff was very helpful. The renovations in the rooms proved to be very nice and modern and comfortable. The view from the ninth floor overlooking the river was fantastic! I could see the view from the bed which I thoroughly enjoyed. The location is fabulous providing a lovely walk across the bridge. It’s not a new hotel so I was prepared to be disappointed because of its age but all in all, it was delightful!
