My mom and I recently stayed here during the November off season. I originally chose it because of the location, but the hotel turned out to be so much more than just a convenient place to store my stuff. Yes, it is within easy walking distance from almost everything you want to get at in Historic Charleston. Shopping is a few streets over on King Street and great restaurants are a few blocks in the other direction on East Bay Street. Walk a little further to reach historic houses to tour or the waterfront to visit. The hotel itself is lovely. Make sure that you request a room with windows. There are interior rooms that look into the atrium and I would assume that those are not as pleasant as a room with a window to the outside. A small but sufficient breakfast is served on the 4th floor. Seating is limited outdoors but during my stay, I had no problem finding a table. There is additional seating inside on the 2nd floor. The lobby has a station with freshly baked cookies (I believe that they came from a near by Market Street bakery), coffee, tea, lemonade and water. This is a lovely, homey touch that was very appreciated. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I asked plenty of questions and never received an unhelpful response. I can't imagine finding a better place to stay in Charleston and am extremely happy I chose this inn.
