looking for a bright room

We are two adults -- coming in March for four nights. We much prefer bright, spacious rooms over dark, 'period' spaces. I know many find this charming -- and we've had our turn, but we like a spot to spread out a bit, read and settle in. Historic district please. We'll worry about the costs, once I get some feedback. Thanks on advance.

IMO Charleston Place and French Quarter Inn are the two best hotels in Charleston. Their rooms are nice, bright and very accomodating. Tristan is a great restaurant at French Quarter Inn..

Charleston Place Hotel @ 205 Meeting St., Charleston, SC 843 - 722 - 4900.

French Quarter Inn @ 166 Church Street, Charleston, SC 843 - 722 - 1900.

The Harborview gets great reviews and has views of the harbor.

Harborview and Charleston Place are good suggestions. Harborview has the open aspect, and Charleston Place is a modern "luxury" hotel that should have lighting to meet your expectations. When you phone the hotel, explain that you want a room with lots of light and space to spred.

Restoration on King has rooms that were designed to be condos, so very spacious; exposed brick; new furnishings and appliances. I think it would fit your needs nicely as well.

Thank you all! Charleston Inn is a bit to chi-chi for our blood on this type of holiday. The French Quarter Inn and Harborview are both on my list -- now, which to choose? Unfortunately, the residences have no vacancy during our week in March.

I'll have to choose between those two and go from there. Thanks so much
