French Quarter Inn

French Quarter Inn Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This stately historic boutique is one of Charleston's best-known hotels, and has plenty of charming southern details (such as a grand wrought-iron staircase) and a location near Historic Downtown's popular tourist sights. Rooms are spacious and have French-inspired decor, and free extras such as breakfast, daily wine and cheese receptions, and freshly baked cookies add value. But there is no pool or fitness center, unlike at the Market Pavilion Hotel.

Andrew Pinckney Inn

Andrew Pinckney Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This 41-room boutique hotel, located within walking distance of Historic District attractions, is housed within two historic buildings dating to the 1860s. Its decor incorporates both traditional Charleston details (such as original brick walls) and West Indies style. The charming rooms, renovated in 2010 and 2011, all have individual decor; some have historic details such as original wood floors. But a few units are very small and lack impressive views. The hotel has few on-site features, but the attractive rooms, convenient location, and multiple freebies make it a good value.

Doubletree by Hilton Hotel & Suites Charleston - Historic District

Doubletree by Hilton Hotel & Suites Charleston - Historic District Rating: 3.5 Pearls

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.

Elliott House Inn

Elliott House Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This quaint, 25-room bed-and-breakfast, housed within a Civil War-era private residence, has an excellent location within the Historic District and competitive rates. Rooms are decorated in traditional style (white quilts, four-poster beds, wood floors), and the property features a large Jacuzzi underneath a shady pergola as well as free breakfast and Wi-Fi. Some rooms are on the small side, however, and amenities are few: The hotel lacks a fitness center, business center, and full restaurant.

Embassy Suites Charleston - Historic Charleston

Embassy Suites Charleston - Historic Charleston Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Across the street from Marion Square, the upper-middle-range Embassy Suites Charleston is housed in the original Citadel Military College that looks like an aged fortress. The lobby, with an oddly placed array of plants, oriental rugs, and chairs, isn't as inviting as some other Charleston hotels, but the Historic Downtown location and the large suites -- complete with separate living rooms, wet bars, mini-fridges, and microwaves -- are the highlight.

Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Mt Pleasant-Charleston

Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Mt Pleasant-Charleston Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 116-room Holiday Inn Express & Suites Mount Pleasant-Charleston is in many ways a typical mid-range chain hotel, albeit one with extensive amenities, including an outdoor pool, a small fitness center, free breakfast, and snacks throughout the day. Though the rooms are generic, they feature contemporary decor, comfy beds, and flat-screen TVs. They're also extremely eco-friendly, with low-flow showerheads, faucets and toilets. On the downside, the hotel is a drive away from most of Charleston's tourist attractions.

Indigo Inn

Indigo Inn Rating: 3.0 Pearls

This 40-room property is a real B&B, with quaint, spacious rooms overlooking a lovely courtyard, traditional-style decor (dated for some), and no hotel-style amenities. However, it has a few interesting freebies, including Wi-Fi; breakfast; and afternoon cheese, wine, and fruit. Plus, it's situated in a gorgeous location in the heart of Charleston’s Historic Downtown, within walking distance to major tourist attractions. It is not quite luxurious (though it has some nice touches), but it is definitely charming and cozy, and geared toward those who appreciate a B&B experience.

Courtyard Charleston Waterfront

Courtyard Charleston Waterfront Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 179-room Courtyard Charleston Waterfront is located on the Ashley Marina, right off the highway and next to the Medical University of South Carolina. Very little is within walking distance, and the contemporary room decor is pretty standard for a mid-range chain. But all rooms come equipped with microwaves and mini-fridges, and the waterfront pool with landscaped patio and marina views is a highlight.

SpringHill Suites Charleston Downtown/Riverview

SpringHill Suites Charleston Downtown/Riverview Rating: 3.0 Pearls

SpringHill Suites Charleston Downtown is a basic mid-range Marriott hotel. The place is popular with families, since all of the rooms are suites with kitchenettes. There's a decent-size outdoor pool here, and a fun giant checkerboard, but that's about it. It's tucked away a bit, about a mile and a half from Charleston's bustling Historic District, so guests will need a car to get to anything. This hotel is a good option for anyone looking to avoid the higher rates of historic Charleston, but it's a chain in a city known for its authentic southern hospitality and stately charm.

Tides Folly Beach

Tides Folly Beach Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Tides Folly Beach is a solid mid-range hotel that is notably clean and modern. A recent facelift can be seen at this waterfront property in each of the 132 rooms, decorated with bright colors, bamboo headboards, soft blue walls, and flat-screen TVs. Rooms are oceanfront and offer balconies that are slim but do have impressive ocean views. One perk here is the outdoor heated pool (open year-round) with plenty of lounge chairs. Some guests complain about a lack of amenities; there is no on-site spa and the fitness center with just four cardio machines is underwhelming. The city is a short nine-mile drive away, making the Tides an ideal pick for couples or families looking to break up tours of historic Charleston with days on the beach.
