Charleston Place Review

Even casual passersby enjoy gazing up at the immense handblown Murano glass chandelier in the hotel's open lobby, clicking across the Italian marble floors, admiring the antiques from Sotheby's, and browsing the gallery of upscale shops that completes the ground-floor offerings of this hotel with deluxe day spa. Rooms are furnished with period reproductions but embrace today with flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi. The impeccable service is what you would expect from an Orient-Express property, particularly on the Club Level, where guests receive a breakfast spread, afternoon tea, and cocktails and pastries in the evening. The spa, with an adjacent fitness room, has an inviting indoor salt- and mineral-water pool with a retractable roof and illuminated skylight for night swimming. Even if you aren't staying here, stop by for cocktails and tapas at the equestrian-theme Thoroughbred Club.

    Beautiful

    In the heart of Charleston it is a gem. The rooms are getting a little tired but I still love it if you want to spend the money. It is so convenient to everything. Beds are super comfy but beware the walls are very thin. Don't get a room overlooking Meeting or Market because you will hear everything on the street below especially late on weekends. I have stayed there 7 or 8 times and this last visit was the worst for noise. You hear everything in the halls and you can hear conversations from the rooms in the halls. I thought the people in the room next door were in our room - we could hear every word they said.
