We enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Charleston. The building appears to be very new and clean. The parking is a problem. Be careful to find a place to leave your car where you won't leave the contents of your wallet, too.

We traveled to Charleston for family weekend. The hotel was very clean and well located. The best part of the stay was the restaurant staff. Both mornings we enjoyed breakfast and felt at home with Karen, Melodie, and Tammy. Each of them were awesome. It was a great way to start the morning. Definitely will stay again!

We stayed here for New Year's. The location was good and allowed us to walk to shops and restaurants. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. The bar/restaurant was very unorganized. They didn't have multiple items on the menu and the bartender had to go help in the kitchen. That left no one at the bar to serve us. The staff seemed annoyed to be there. They were also short staffed the next morning for the valet. They had one person to do it all. We waited for quite some time to get our vehicle. The place was under construction so maybe the changes will be good. Room was fine, nothing special. I did enjoy the large walk-in shower. Read less
