Glad we selected this hotel. The staff was very nice. Jess at the front desk called us when our room was ready. It really makes me happy to see staff actually do what they say they will do, without having to remind them. She was also very helpful in providing all the information I needed. Surprised to have someone come... More

1. The location is hard to beat. It borders on the Market Place. King Street is 2 blocks one way and the harbor is 4-5 blocks in the opposite direction. The hotel is surrounded by nice restaurants. 2. Price is average for rooms in the area. However the hotel has a modern interior and spacing. Many hotels have quite small... More

After reading reviews on Trip Advisor decided this would be the place we needed to stay. Were celebrating birthday's and I wanted a central location. Doubletree aced it. Room 3as spacious and clean. Bellmen and valet were efficient. From now on only place I will stay in Charleston. Am a Hilton Honors member also.

Exactly the location you want to experience the best of Charleston. Restaurants, shopping, restaurants, small shops, a street of special places to browse, museums, carriages, a six block long covered outdoor market, all within walking distance. Did I mention restaurants? The hotel itself is exquisite, with the luxury and graceful ambience of places costing much more. Room was quiet, sparkling... More

We had a bi-level suite. It was a weird setup. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom smallest ever. Overweight people could not fit. Maid service was not good. Never took dirty glasses out and never vacuumed. Did change towels and made beds. Front desk very helpful and nice. Wifi not very good. Breakfast was fine but servers very slow.

Fantastic Location, Friendly Staff Breakfast and Fitness Room could be improved. It was a bit of a struggle chasing down hot coffee and silverware at breakfast. Fitness equipment could have been cleaner and better maintained. Overal a very nice hotel and looking forward to my next stay!
