This place was truly amazing. It's gorgeous and has a charm all it's own...not like a tall, new condo hotel. The outside is still old and majestic and the inside feels palatial. It is right in the center of all the action and you can literally walk everywhere....to the water, the market, the restaurants, museums, shopping. And the food....oh, the... More

Shopping was nearby in and out of hotel. The harbor was in walking distance as well as the City Market. The rooms were well decorated but the AC was atrociously loud all night. Bring ear plugs just in case. Great comfy beds and pillows. Personnel were kind and helpful.

The hotel was in easy range of downtown Canrleston. Shopping and many restaurants were close by. They put my wife and I in a room with two double beds.

This hotel was recently renovated and the rooms have a more new traditional feel. Beautiful! The spa was great... We went for massages and then in the hot tub.,, bring your bathing suit! Pool is nice. ThE desk is extremely helpful with tours. Make dinner reservations a month in advance. This is a foodie destination!

This hotel was recommended to us and what a wonderful experience it turned out to be. Rooms were spacious and very comfortable. The hotel had that lovely southern charm, and staff were extremely helpful and genuinely interested in our comfort and enjoyment of the hotel. We would love to visit again.
