City Loft Hotel Review

Cleverly transformed into a boutique property, this former motel built in the '60s was bought and resuscitated by the McAlhaneys, a young, hip Beaufort couple, who have infused it with their sense of high-tech, minimalist style. The California-queen-size beds have a stash of plush pillows, fine linens, and duvets. Bathrooms are chic with a soaking tub, plus a separate rain shower and high-quality toiletries. There are also iPod lamps, plasma TVs (in the bedrooms and bathrooms), and free Wi-Fi. You can get breakfast or lunch delivered from the gourmet coffee shop on the first floor, and there are bottles of wine for sale. Request a second-floor room, as you are less likely to hear guests drive away early in the morning.
