Three Incredible Accommodations Values


Embassy Suites Historic District If you're a history lover, you'll be pleasantly surprised with what Embassy Suites has done with the original Citadel Campus predating the Civil War. They have enclosed the original courtyard where the cadets held formations and conducted training before moving to their current location two miles northwest on the Ashley River. The location is excellent with two very good restaurants just a half-block away. Coast and Rue de Jean restaurants are right around the corner and are both excellent choices. The City Market is just a ten to fifteen minute walk, and the property is adjacent to the lovely and historic Marion Square.

In making your comparison to other properties, you'll want to factor in their full cooked to order breakfast served in what used to be the cadet mess hall and also the two hour manager's reception which offers a complimentary full bar. Given that a glass of house wine goes for five bucks at any local restaurant or bar, that can be a significant added value. For my wife and I, breakfast usually runs about fifteen bucks and one glass of wine each is $10, so that comes to an added value of $25/day.

All Suites Also, keep in mind that you're getting a suite with a separate room with a pull-out sofa and TV. So if you have a kid or two, it works even better. You can have the bedroom to yourself with a King or Queen bed, and if you've ever shared a double bed after being used to a queen or a king, you know how great an advantage that is. Also, if you've ever spent two nights cooped up in the same room with your little ones, I don't have to tell you how fantastic it is to have the other room where they can watch their own TV, and if they're teenagers, they can stay up late without disturbing you.

How nice is it, really? ... The property is fairly nice, they keep it renovated and looking good, so the rooms and the entire property are in good condition. The beds are very comfortable and there is good water pressure.

The Vendue ... The Vendue Inn offers one of the best values available for an Inn or Hotel under $250/night. Vendue Range is my favorite spot in Charleston. It's located near a wide variety of some of the best restaurants in Charleston as well as the waterfront park. Also, The Rooftop Bar and Restaurant is the sweetest spot in Charleston for great views and great fun.

The Rooms - Most rooms have jetted tubs large enough for a couple. (I think that's a very important distinction.) Each room is decorated differently with luxurious bedding, rugs and window treatments as well as antiques and period reproductions.

Full Hot Breakfast - There are very few properties in Charleston that offer a full hot breakfast included with the rate, and no other historic inn.

How nice is it, really? I think the property is as nice as most four diamond inns or hotels in Charleston. The lobby area is warm, inviting and comfortable. I inspected several rooms and they were all very nice.

Rates - The Vendue Inn does not require a deposit when you place your reservation and if you cancel at least 72 hours prior to your arrival. Check the rates The Vendue

King Charles Inn The King Charles Inn is ideally located on Meeting Street nestled in the center of the historic district and close to the world famous open market. The Inn itself is a part of this charming city's exciting past. Originally named the Pavilion Hotel (circa 1830), it was the gathering spot of area artisans and artists.

Edgar Allen Poe chose it as his weekly retreat while a soldier at Fort Moultrie. The newly restored Inn, loses none of that grand southern tradition. The King Charles is a perfect blend of Southern Ambiance and the most modern amenities expected for fine lodging.
