Every inch of the property is majestic, beautiful and elegant! I have always highly recommended this hotel to family and friends when they visit and I am thrilled to include them on my list of best places to stay while visiting Charleston! While I was assembling this series and conducting research for this project I stayed at the property and enjoyed the following: a fantastic skin treatment at the spa called the Intracueticals Rejuvenate Restoring Oxygen Treatment (it’s a game changer and made my skin look 10 years younger…treat yourself…you’ll thank me later), breakfast at The Palmetto Cafe where I enjoyed the Huevos Rancheros…it was delicious and dinner at Meeting at Market where I had one of the best burgers in town! My 4 year old daughter and I stayed in a luxury suite and while it was amazing and spectacular (my daughters response to our room: “I love this place, when can we stay here again…its amazing!”) I can attest that each of the rooms, suites and club level accommodations are all fantastic and no matter which one you choose based on your needs and wants…you will very comfortable and pleased with your decison in choosing this property that offers great attention to detail for each of its guests…even the 4 year old ones, whom think their names are: Eloise.
