10.0 Wonderful
Best value hotel in Charleston.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Staff was amazing and very helpful. The on-site restaurant has wonderful breakfast!
Cons:Broken closet door in entry hall would swing into the path of the room door. There didn’t appear to be a vent in the bathroom. The 2 person elevator policy does not work when you’re at 100% capacity and it is busy.
10.0 Wonderful

Cons:The water pressure was too low in the shower.
10.0 Wonderful

Cons:The only thing I would have like to have was better mattress.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:We had an amazing view from the 9th floor. What an exceptional stay in global pandemic

10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Great location, beautiful hotel but more importantly fantastic customer service. Our room was not ready at check-in and we were willing to wait a few minutes. In under 15 minutes they had us checked in and gave us vouchers for free drinks and appetizers at the hotel restaurant. The breakfast buffet was scrumptious (at Swap Fox) and had a great selection. Plus it conveniently had a Starbucks on site. Will definitely be back!
