This place has a terrific location: It's right beside the City Market, just down Church Street from plays and music at Dock Street Theatre, and in view of the Tuscan porticoes and iconic steeple of St. Phillip's Church.
Travel + Leisure World's Best Awards 2015

Condé Nast Traveler

Expect 'spacious, cheerfully decorated, and spotlessly clean rooms' and an expansive lobby with a dramatic spiral atrium.


Among the best rooms are No. 220, a suite with an office niche overlooking the courtyard, and No. 104, with a spacious L-shape design.


Guests arrive to an atrium with an elaborate wrought-iron staircase that rises in a spiral from the ground level and is topped with a large skylight. Champagne awaits guests upon check-in, and the rooms are decorated in vibrant shades of red, gold, and black, with toile bedspreads and damask upholstered furniture.

Shermans Travel

This contemporary, boutique hotel provides a respite for those tired of Charleston's seemingly ubiquitous, frilly, antebellum décor.
