    I used the pool area and went sightseeing downtown. I was there for a getaway because I spend all my other time as a caregiver for my elderly parents. The staff was so friendly and helpful. I felt safe traveling alone. I chose this hotel for its location to shopping, sightseeing, and restaurants. I would like to stay here again although I have stayed in more comfortable rooms in other hotels.

    I wasn't pleased with being put at the end of the hall beside the icemaker room. I would have preferred more comfortable seating in the room. The tv didn't offer many stations and wasn't clear at times. The robes were rough feeling. It would be nice to have a stool or something to sit in the bathroom while drying my hair and applying makeup. I hope these suggestions help.

    The staff was very nice.

    The staff woke me on my 1st morning to check if I wanted my room cleaned. I have never had anyone knock on door before 11a. and they were going up and down the halls each morning between 8/9a.M.. I heard several guest ask why so early so I know I was not the only guest that that was suriprised and wanted to sleep in. I understand that some of the upper star hotels do not have coffee in the rooms but most offer coffee in the lounge. I think they could of had one or the other. Robes were like sand paper. I could of stayed at 3 star hotel and had just as nice room and stay.

    Service was courteous and prompt.

    Although we booked a room in the club level, we were put into a lower class room without any options.

    Loved the architecture and decor of the hotel. The staff (bellhops, valet, etc.) was excellent. We only ate in the Grill once, but the food was good. We loved the proximity to downtown and good restaurants (Pookah's Porch, Toast).

    The bed was a backache for both of us. A new, better mattress would have made a very good experience that much better.

    Location location location! The staff was excellent, Very comfortable bed and room.

    I think the room should have coffee set-ups for the guest. Also the televisions need updating.

  • Older travelers

    We loved how friendly and professional the entire staff was. We felt very welcomed from the minute we arrived. There was some confusion about an online booking not showing up, but it was quickly taken care of, and when we got settled in our room we were delighted to find that Steve, at the front desk, sent us a bottle of wine and some snacks with a nice note apologizing for any inconvenience. Our room was beautiful, and our dinner at the Charleston Place restaurant was fabulous. The hotel is located perfectly, but we hardly wanted to leave because our stay with you was so great.

    There was nothing about Charleston Place we didn't like.

    3 night stay; overall very good value for money; good location for shopping in the city; very friendly and helpful staff.

    Last night the neighbouring room was occupied by people having a dog, almost continously barking until late in the evening.

  • Family with children
    5.0

    Location, decor.

    Not really pet friendly as suggested, rude staff, not worth the cost in comparison to other highly rated hotels.

  • Older travelers

    Nothing. The hotel, including both our room and the common afreas, was dirty. Dirt and refuse, leftover food and other refuse was visible throughout. However, the main pissue I have with the facility is that it is vastly overpriced. Additionally, every staff member has their hand out as guests are passed from one staffer to another. A $400/night small room quickly becomes a $600/night expense, I will not visit this hotel, or any other within its franchise, again. Richard C. Davis

    See above. Why should this form not be used for complaints? You probably mean that this will not be seen by management. HOwever, complaints are exactly what you're asking for when you ask whether I liked or disliked something,
