This hotel is over 200 years old and was the original Citadel Military School. The rooms were average and maybe a little worn. However, the hotel itself was great. You felt the history. In addition, a free cooked to order breakfast was provided every morning. A free happy hour with wine, well drinks, beer and appetizers were provided daily from,5...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 January 2017

This was our 4th time staying at this hotel. The location is great, walking distance to most things in the historic district and shopping on King Street. The rooms are typical for an Embassy Suites and it's really nice having the separate living space when traveling with kids. The breakfast is good and very convenient, it's a buffet style so...

The hotel lobby and outdoor patio is very nice, the rooms themselves are average. The location is AWESOME! Valet parking at $25/day is the only option for hotel parking. There is a small pool by the patio, open bar for wine and snacks 5:30-7:30 and a made to order complimentary breakfast which we passed up to try some of the...

I am not picky, so I can overlook something a little outdated for the sake of location. And this is the first time I am ever writing a review on anything, but I have to share my experience to help others from booking at this excuse for a hotel. I was particularly moved by an elderly gentlemen telling the front...

A very nice hotel with a grand atrium. The staff was extraordinary. The only problem was the rooms from 117 on bordered a street that had construction underway. We had room 118 that was next to the construction gate and got very noisy around 0700.

The hotel was the original Citadel, so it has historical value. The rooms are spacious and nice, but the noise from the center "parade" room travels upward. The breakfasts were excellent with outdoor seating available. We were able to walk to most places, and the free DASH bus took us everywhere else. However, the buses have weird schedules and are...

The room was comfortable and the complimentary breakfast was amazing. The area around the hotel was equally satisfying. These are the only reasons we provided three stars. The largest downside to the entire stay was the noise made while trying to sleep. We had a wonderful room on the first floor which began to degrade at about 4:45 AM. The...

My wife and I had our first honeymooon there 20 years ago. We decided to do it again for our 20th. It was great! Thank you to Jeff, Derek, Stephen, the valet staff and any and all staff for making our 20th anniversary great!

I was on a business trip to Savannah Georgia and had 4 days off in between my work days. So I took my parents with me and headed on up to Charleston for the first time. My mother wanted to stay in the historic district so I found this hotel and used my Hilton points to reduce the rate. We...
