My family and I traveled to Charleston for a week long holiday. We knew which sites we wanted to see, and, like any tourists, planned to visit the downtown historic areas. But the prices downtown for rooms rival those of Manhattan! So with a little research we found this gem, offering a 3 room suite with 2 baths at a... More

We had a wonderful stay at Residence Inn. The 2 bedroom suite was spacious and clean and the beds very comfortable. We enjoyed the breakfast and the outdoor fire ring. The staff was very helpful. The evening shuttle to and from the downtown was great!

I recently stayed here for a girl's weekend. Although in the West Ashley neighborhood of Charleston, it is close enough that downtown is only a 5 minute drive away.

I was happy with this hotel. Large, clean, corporate rooms. The location is not the best (outside and over the bridge from downtown), but it's much cheaper because of it. That's why we picked it for this trip vs. downtown.

While this is not in the heart of the downtown district, it is accessible in the evening (only) via their shuttle service. The driver, JP, was particularly good. The ride is about 10-15 min. with a single pick up location near the city market for the return ride home. The rooms are okay but a little dated. Their breakfast is... More
