Hampton Inn Historic Review

The Hampton Inn, located at 345 Meeting Street, just steps from Marion Square and King Street, boasts one among the best of addresses in Charleston for shopping and being at the heart of a multitude of attractions. While there is a parking garage for guests at the Hampton Inn, one may just opt to leave the car behind and walk to all the sights the Historic District has to view.

Or, the temptation to just stay at the Hampton Inn's fabulous courtyard pool, may be such that relaxation and sunning in the beautiful South Carolina weather is how one spends his or her days. And no matter what time of year, the Charleston nights just outside the Hampton Inn doors, are always hot with fabulous restaurants from casual chic (Rue de Jean or Coast) to finer dining (Hall's Chop House) or further toward the French Quarter, where any number of hot restaurants and even hotter live music from easy jazz to the grittiest blues can be experienced as well as live theater options.

Whether traveling for a romantic weekend, a family vacation or with a larger group for a Charleston wedding, event or business meeting the Hampton Inn is substantial enough to accommodate a range of needs with 170 rooms, yet efficiently coordinated so that the individual's desires are courteously attended. The Hampton Inn goes beyond the typical continental breakfast by serving a hot morning breakfast offering the likes of hot sausage and eggs, or lighter fare such as hot coffee, fruit or bagels all of which is included in the room rates. Breakfast is served in the spacious yet homey lobby area sporting pine-board floors and a selection of tables to suit the intimate party of one or two as well as larger groups. In this same lobby area, complimentary fresh fruit, coffee and cookies can be found anytime during the day and fresh donut and milk are served every evening.

The Hampton Inn offers additional comforts required by some such as handicapped access, wider or walk-in showers and lower sinks in select rooms as well as standard amenities: an iron, hair drier, microwave oven and a refrigerator to accommodate the convenience of their guests. Motion fitness facilities can also be enjoyed at the Hampton Inn with the added handiness of a flat screen television so a workout and daily news or entertainment can be absorbed simultaneously. Some rooms come with a king pullout couch for family or economy travel and complimentary wireless Internet is available throughout the Inn.

While the guests of the Hampton Inn enjoy quite a desirable address due to its convenient location in proximity to so much Charleston extends to her visitors, this 3-diamond *** establishment proffers an excellent value for a 2-night minimum even on the weekend night and even more pleasing rates can be enjoyed midweek.
