nice, but overpriced

Pros: Very nice, spacious and beautiful.
Cons: Frequent business travelers expect services. It is a bit tacky to pay these prices and then be charged EXTRA for a basic service like internet.
Location: Not that good, advertised as close to historic district, it is not. There is nothing within walking distance.
I did not feel that the hotel was a good value at well over $300 per night PLUS extra for internet access. $2.75 for a soft drink plus I had to walk to the lobby to get it, no vending machines on the floor even though the directory said they were next to the elevators. Advertised as close to the Historic District and it is not.

Beautiful hotel

Beautiful hotel with a nice pool and hot tub, the food at the restaurant was superb and the hotel was very clean. There was a charge to use the wifi, which I thought was tacky, but I have an iPhone, so that's fine. But I would stay again.

Overall great hotel.

Cons: No free Internet
Only stayed the night, so I can't say too much about the hotel, but overall it was a really good experience. Just a couple small things that affected my stay (one of which was my fault, I didn't bring my own pillow). Really my only issue was the internet. Not free. I only needed it to send one e-mail and look up directions, so I went without for the night. Other than that, excellent service, great views, and an out of the way but not too far location!

Loved Charleston

Pros: shuttle service to downtown for $6 per person, breakfast buffet was great, free parking
Cons: No free Internet
This hotel was not located in the heart of downtown, but the hotel offered a shuttle service to downtown at $6 per person for all day, which was nice. We also stayed at a hotel in downtown, but the parking fee can cost from $14 ~ $22 per day. The rooftop bar was closed during winter, but the hotel has a nice bar and a restaurant.

Old school hotel, service ammenities,rooms,and location.

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
If you are looking for a hotel in Charleston that offers good service, large comfortable rooms, restaurants and bars on sight and is located convienent to historic downtown (free shuttle) as well as Mount Pleasant, Isles of Palm, Sullivan Island and Folly beach by car this is the one. Easy access to major highways in the area . Not great for walking but with the free shuttle service you get all the historic downtown you will want.

Outstanding front desk service, very courteous also

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: Nothing close
Exorbitant price on Saffire restaurant items --no wonder there were so few diners! Quality of food very good, but many better restaurants in the area offer less expensive dinners that include salad. Better choices on E. Bay St., Market St. area. and not even complimentary coffee!

Great Hotel and staff!

Pros: Close restaurants
Hotel was beautiful and our room was exactly as expected. We stayed here for a bachelorette party and the staff took it upon themselves to make sure we had a driver waiting every night! I look forward to returning to this hotel again.

The service was great

Pros: Free Internet
Cons: none really
When I first got there I found that I had two double beds rather than the king size bed I had requested. The hotel was booked so we stayed there. The staff were constantly asking how things were going and if they could help with anything. In the morning I got locked in the shower because of faulty doors and it took a 5-10 minutes to get out of there. After speaking with the front desk I switched to another room with a king size bed but then after being in the room a while we noticed it had a slightly moldy odor to it. Again a bellhop asked how things were going and I told him about the odor. A few minutes later he calls on the room phone and tells me he has a suite for me which was very nice and clean and huge.
