    For recent guests, The Spectator Hotel's distinct style and unbeatable customer service are what sets this Charleston, South Carolina, property apart from its peers. Situated just one block from the Charleston City Market and a short walk from the popular Waterfront Park, The Spectator Hotel offers a convenient home base for sightseers. Aside from the location, recent visitors raved about the rooms, particularly the comfy beds and spacious bathrooms. Accommodations also come equipped with minifridges, coffee makers, complimentary Wi-Fi access and personal butlers – perhaps the biggest delight among lodgers. While the property doesn't have its own on-site restaurant (though it does offer a free continental breakfast each morning), recent visitors didn't seem to mind; travelers said their butlers and the front desk staff were quick to offer suggestions and advice for guests. But after you've explored the Charleston dining scene, consider heading back to The Spectator to sample some of the handcrafted cocktails at its bar, which is designed to look like a 1920s-era speakeasy. The hotel lacks a fitness center, but you can get in your exercise with the hotel's complimentary bikes.

They also say that the complimentary breakfast alongside waterfront views from the rooftop terrace and the impeccable customer service are worth returning for.

    Nestled in historic downtown Charleston's French Quarter, The Vendue offers unique lodgings that exhibit distinct Southern charm.

While the specific design of each room varies, the historical theme of the property remains central across all accommodations, each boasting antique furnishings as well as modern amenities such as flat-screen TVs and in-room Wi-Fi. Aside from the room accouterments, The Vendue also boasts complimentary bike rentals, two restaurant, rooftop bar and top-notch customer service, according to guests.

    Most recent guests praise The Mills House Hotel's quaint accommodations, ideal location and delicious food. Sandwiched between some of Charleston's most intriguing museums and galleries on Meeting Street, Mills is also an easy walk to The Calhoun Mansion and the Nathaniel Russell House. Besides the rooms featuring coffee makers, nightly turndown service and complimentary daily newspapers, this hotel also has an outdoor pool, a well-dressed courtyard and the visitor-approved Barbadoes Room restaurant. Several guests express disappointment on having to pay up to $32 a day for parking. One other thing to keep in mind: This hotel was originally built in 1853, meaning its rooms and bathrooms are smaller than its contemporary counterparts.

    Though the Elliott House Inn's original structure – which was built by William Mills, the architect of the Washington Monument – burned down during Charleston's Great Fire of 1861, it was rebuilt shortly after and has been welcoming guests since 1981. Today, the boutique property still has many historical features, including bricks salvaged from the 1861 fire and earthquake bolts added to reinforce the structure after an earthquake in 1886. Despite its far-reaching history, this hotel's 26 guest rooms are far from dated. Each space offers traditional details, such as hardwood floors and an armoire, as well as modern amenities like free Wi-Fi access, a flat-screen television and upscale bath products. Plus, all room rates include complimentary extras like daily continental breakfast, use of the property's bicycles, concierge services and a nightly wine and cheese reception. Past lodgers were particularly fond of the inn's breakfasts and evening receptions, although some wished their beds were a bit more comfortable. Another bonus: the hotel's locale. The Elliott House Inn is situated in downtown Charleston within walking distance of historic sites like the Charleston City Market, The Nathaniel Russell House Museum and The Battery's charming mansions. Note that traditional hotel amenities, including a restaurant and fitness center, are not offered here.
