Going to Charleston, SC in November and not sure which one to stay at?  Any suggestions?

    Don't know if you received response to your earlier inquiry, or not, but here are few suggestions:

     

    Renaissance, Bohemian and Courtyard are all in great locations for visiting downtown Charleston....

    As mentioned in previous post, we actually prefer to stay at Residence Inn, Isle of Palms, some 15 minutes from downtown Charleston, which affords less costs, along with access to beach and restaurants here and Sullivan's Island....

    Make sure you take the time to walk along the waterfront (Battery), down Church Street, and in the park to see some of the famous old houses ("South of Broad"....

    There are a number of fine restaurants in downtown Charleston - Hall's Chop House, Blossoms, Fleet's Landing...

    I completely agree with the above post about staying at the Residence Inn near Isle of Palms. If you want to do beaches, it is right down the street. My wife and I lived in Charleston for two years and return at least once a year. We've stayed at 5 different Marriott's over the past 4 years and Residence Inn at IOP is our favorite.

     

    That said, if you are just interested in seeing the downtown area, Grand Bohemian has the most central location. After a day or two of site-seeing, most of the other things you'll want to do you'll need to drive to: beaches, plantations, Shem Creek, Patriots Point, and of course Poe's Tavern on Sullivan's Island (a must!) You pay a premium price to stay downtown but you are almost better off staying off the peninsula and in Mount Pleasant.
