Overview

Guests loved the complimentary breakfast, central location, bar and personable service
No fitness center, spa, restaurant or pool on-site
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.
