The Doubletree by Hilton features rooms outfitted in golds, reds, and greens, with dark wood accents and draped curtains. Some may find the decor somewhat dated and stuffy, but the hotel has a more luxurious feel than other chain hotels, especially in the lobby, which is bedecked with chandeliers and high archways. The basement fitness center and the quiet courtyard are nice features, and the historic downtown location is a highlight, but families may want to consider the nearby Embassy Suites, which has a pool and free Wi-Fi.
In Historic Downtown, a short walk from the vibrant Charleston City Market
Though a bit less centrally located than some other historic downtown hotels, the Doubletree is just a short walk from the Charleston City Market, home to numerous craft stands, and the Gibbes Museum of Art. Other attractions like the College of Charleston and the Charleston Museum are within walking distance (about 15 minutes), but some may prefer to drive.
Historic Downtown is known for its beautiful 18th-century architecture, numerous museums, and great shopping, and restaurants. King Street is the main drag, with high-end restaurants, art galleries, and shops.
