This property is one of my favorites to stay while I'm in Charleston. It has the best view from its restaurant/bar! It's literally right smack in the middle of Highway 17. It's conveniently located to downtown and if you don't want to drive, you can take the shuttle. The drivers this trip were amazing. I kidded one that he was better than a carriage ride. Both were full of knowledge about Charleston. The down side was the van has something, not sure what, over the windows which makes it ... Read more

An unusual hotel in the round. Rooms an unusual triangle shape which gives a large amount of space. Large picture window gives panoramic views from high floors but no access to small balcony for safety reasons. Well equipped and clean but no microwave. Set in the middle of the highway low floors get plenty of traffic noise as does the outdoor swimming pool on the 3rd level. The feature of the hotel is the panoramic restaurant on the 15th floor.

Room was very very clean. Actually got the exact room from a previous stay ( by pure chance). The roof top/floor bar is a excellent way to relax and look out over the river. We actually sat there for 3 1/2 hours before stepping over to the restaurant next door. Of all the places in Charleston that have top notch cooks, I must say this place has the best SheCrab soup by far. Our waitress at the bar was above & beyond.

This hotel has great views of the river. You can watch the boats coming in and out of the harbor. I would definitely consider staying here again. The only reason I didn't give it a higher rating, is that it is an old hotel. And needs a little updating. The balconies have been closed for safety reasons and it just shows its age in various ways. Otherwise it is a nice place to stay. Clean, friendly staff and did I mention the gorgeous views!?!

If choosing this hotel, choose to upgrade to a city view it will be worth the money. The front desk staff was great on check in and out. They suggested for us to take the shuttle into town and definitely worth it. The staff upstairs in the restaurant go out of their way to make sure you are happy with everything. The view is outstanding and even better with a sunset.

I am shocked to see so many 5 star ratings because this is definitely NOT a 5 star hotel! When we first entered our room, we were greeted with, dreary carpeting, really shabby furniture, and a musty, "doggy" smell that took some getting use to. The drawers of the dresser were incredibly difficult to open and close, so we opted to leave them partially open. The toilet alarmingly seemed on the verge of overflowing with every flush. The mattresses and pillows were just old, and tired, and uncomfor... Read more

As Holiday Inn Hotels go, this is merely satisfactory. It is a bit outside of town but there is good road access. The rooms are not great but are adequate. The room itself was fairly clean but not pristine. There's a pool on the third floor and it is very nice. So while I would not highly recommend this place, if you're on a budge and not too choosy, it's OK.

Location is very convenient. If you purchase Carnival's Faster to the Fun their complimentary shuttle to the port will not help you- they only offer 2 shuttle times with 10 spaces each after 12 Noon.

I have stayed here a few times over the years- it is out of downtown, but you save more than enough for an Uber or taxi. The hotel runs a shuttle every two hours starting at 3:30PM- John the driver gave us the "nickel" tour on the way in.

This building has to be decades old and based on the stay we had in Bluffton, I didn't have high hopes but the room actually smelled acceptable. Room was reasonably clean but still old. View of the river but windows were old and the view wasn't really viewable through them. As we were on the road for 2 weeks we really tried to keep the budget in the low 100s for a night (which this was) but I think we need to raise our budget to 150 a night to stay in some better properties.

The pluses of this hotel are that it has a great restaurant space with good views across the river. It has a shuttle service which takes you to the centre of town running every 2 hours during the day and the room was Well maintained. The staff were helpful and friendly and we're obviously trying to do a good job, but there seemed to be a lack of care in certain areas. Our main problem came with the shuttle, the service is good and the guys who run it give a nice guided chat as they drive, whic... Read more

The great things about this place include the Riverview, the location, access to their restaurant and breakfast buffet, the Business Center, adequate Fitness Center and the very hospitable Front Desk staffers. Namely, Heather and Jenn. The balconies are decorative only, and for safety reasons are locked shut, as they should be. The view in the restaurant and in some of the special rooms was beautiful. My room was quiet, with a comfy bed. The hotel offers free shuttle, and free parking, and is... Read more

Writing for wife a Platinum IHG member. I stayed one night. Overall impression was very negative. The front desk staff was the one and only bright point but could not overcome the negatives. Desk clerk claimed that my room was an upgrade. The room was small but adequate. The carpet was way past its prime and appeared to be dirty. The walls are too thin and the bed was uncomfortable. In all, a good night sleep was not possible. The restaurant was 2/3 empty and several window tables were open.... Read more

I would stay here again if necessary, but for the basic amenities that were lacking, I'd probably choose another hotel. We were overall satisfied, but the suggestions for better satisfaction would be complimentary coffee (water is currently available all day) and the option for muffins, or fruit as well. There is NO free breakfast here. We did enjoy the Sunday Breakfast in the restaurant and I was satisfied. Nothing special but plenty of options, hot, clean, and an amazing view!! It was very c...

The hotel wasn't clean, it had a dirty feel and look to it. The room furniture was old, there was no safety deposit box and the one offered at reception was so small a passport wouldn't fit in it. Only one lift working due to an energy surge. Room balcony doors were securely closed so you cannot go onto the balcony. You need a car to get to Charleston or you can use the free shuttle bus. The bus driver John was the best part of the stay, very knowledgeable about the area and accommodating gettin... Read more

Typical old style Holiday inn, we booked for one night on the way to DC so we could visit historic Charleston. The location is just outside the historic district over the bridge nothing around it but highway which was fine for us we had an upper level room, ok for overnight, but there were earplugs provided with the shampoos so I suspect that the highway noise could be a problem. We had intended to eat dinner in their restaurant and were even given a coupon only to find out it was closed that e... Read more

This is by far the worst place we have ever visited. We reserved a room with the required 24 hour cancellation policy. When we saw the room, we could not cancel without forfeiting the cost of our one night stay. There was mold on the window casing and the ice machine and there was hardly any water pressure coming out of the sink faucet. The room had only a small refrigerator and no microwave. The room door and the bathroom door stuck so much we could hardly open them. There were only 2 elevators... Read more

The hotel was nice and clean, bed was comfortable. The only downside to hotel is the terrible entrance and exit. Where it sits traffic is heavy and coming and leaving can be scary. The view of the river would have been great but all of the balconies are locked and unaccesible and the windows were dirty so hard to see the river.

The location is convenient to the harbor and historical area. My husband immediately noticed how dirty the entrance is and the glass doors were very dirty. Glass seems to be their downfall. The glass top of table in lobby had enough dust and dirt to write your name on it. We wanted to go back to our room to watch the Sunday afternoon football game but our room had not been made up yet at 3 pm. Beds were not comfortable but otherwise room was ok.

We thought this hotel was fine , apart from where it was situated . Seemed to be on an island with busy highways on either side of the hotel . All the amenities were in the rooms as mentioned on their site . The first morning there was a problem with acquiring tables for breakfast , it was because 2 other groups didn't stick to the timetable ( we were a tour group ) . Second morning , no problem at all . Brenda in the restaurant was brilliant xx

Holiday Inn Riverview is conveniently located across the Ashley River from Downtown Charleston. The round design means room are pie-shaped, many with a beautiful view of the river, and it's easy to spot from the road. The main drawback is that it is located in the middle of a divided highway (US 17) that crosses the Ashley River. Our room had a patio door that used to open onto a balcony. A sign by the door says it is permanently closed due to safety, but the latch that was supposed to secure th... Read more

I had stayed at the Holiday Inn several years ago and returned the day after Hurricane Mathew this month. Anne, Josh and Amanda were amazing to talk to before I came and throughout my visit. The shuttle bus into town works so well with a driver who goes out of his way to drop you off at your destination giving a history tour as he goes! I would recommend the hotel to anyone traveling to Charleston. Many thanks again

Got a room on 14th Floor and other than a bad view there was some machine above the room making a very loud noise. It was so loud and disruptive that one could not sleep period. I requested another room, so then gave me one on the 4th Floor. The room was quiet, but the bed mattress was so bad and broken down.

If you are lucky enough to get the city/river view side it is a very nice view of central Charleston and the river in between. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Weekends are busy (!) with wedding parties, the people, not the event or actual parties. As a result the place can be very busy. Lobby is nice but rather small because of the round, column shape of the hotel. Each room is wedge shaped with the elevators and stairways in the central core of the building, and that means you enter the ro... Read more

I have lived in Charleston for many years and have seen this hotel change a lot in the past year. Hopefully the will renovate the hotel like they did the bar area. I stopped in on Sunday and I love the new decor. The view is the absolute best in Charleston, my favorite go to. I sat at the bar and enjoyed my conversation with Jessica and a few locals. If you are in Charleston you got to check this spot out! Good job and I look forward to seeing what is next

The hotel looks interesting because of the tower shape, but the windows in the rooms are so small and the balcony is sealed: there's no point advertising it as a room with a view. There was no microwave in our room, and no air ventilation in the bathroom. The ceilings in a hallways are a little low and make you feel claustrophobic. The rooms are neat and clean, but I feel the hotel is overpriced.

While attending a wedding in Charleston we stayed two nights here. So many downtown hotels charged a much higher rate for Friday, but HI did not. When four of us arrived we requested two rooms together or at least on the same floor. Amanda was so sweet she got us two rooms together with a river view. The top floor bar/restaurant had a very good bartender and the breakfast buffet was quite good. Only bummer was having to pay extra for orange juice. Never had that happen on a buffet before. ...

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. Anything downtown Charleston was ridiculously expensive so we chose this hotel. They have a shuttle that takes you downtown which is a great plus because there is no parking in Charleston. We would take the shuttle in and get a taxi back, which cut down on our taxi expense. The room was average; like I said, this hotel is in need of upgrades.

My husband traveled here on business and chose this hotel a second time. As his wife I was pleased to join him on the trip even though he would be working. My experience with the staff was exceptional. I would like to give a special shout out to Carey - the shuttle driver. He is a wealth of information of his city and personable. Also LaGea' and Neal in the restaurant and their staff. Friendly, and welcoming. Ask questions they are there to help you out. I look forward to another stay.

We stayed at the Riverview location and arrived late on a Sunday evening. We had appointments the following day at MUSC and were a bit nervous. We went to the bar/restaurant on the top floor and were greeted by Jo who proceeded to take excellent care of us for the next few hours. She was efficient and caring, making sure we had everything we needed in a timely manner. We will most definitely return thanks to her hospitality!
