As it was my first visit to Charleston, this was the perfect place to stay. It was close to everything. My stay was for business and your Inn was within walking distance from my conference. When we ar...rived, you staff was very kind and understanding when my business card was declined. They patiently waited while I tried to figure things out on a Sunday. Your staff was amazingly friendly for the three days I was there. Every time I entered your lobby I was greeted and conversation was always there! The valet was kind and friendly and made sure every time we walked by, we were greeted! The breakfast was great, the wine and cheese tasting we were not able to attend but sounded amazing. When I do return, this will be the place to stay! Loved the charming southern hospitality! See More

We had a wonderful weekend. The staff was delightful and very courteous. It was a nice relief to come in and have a cold glass of lemonade and a cookie on the very hot day after walking. The room w...as comfy and clean. We will be back. Just the perfect location! I highly recommend staying at the Inn. We had a great getaway!! See More

The two stars are purely for the employees. The hotel was pretty great in and of itself. We called late one night to confirm our reservation and was put on hold for over 10 minutes. Hung up and called... back 15 minutes later and nobody answered. Strike one. The breakfast and cocktail hour were pretty nice and the food/wine was great. But, again, the employees ruined it. A seemingly impatient attendant made things awkward. (Here’s the icing on the cake!) The attendant at breakfast this morning works out of a little nook, where I’m assuming they heat the food, and she was clearly watching the movie Chucky (yes the little doll murderer movie). Now, we couldn’t see the movie, but boy could you hear it. It was so loud that everybody eating outside definitely heard it. Hearing it wasn’t so much the problem, but that it was definitely during a murder scene. A lady (in the movie) could be heard screaming at the top of her lungs while you could clearly hear her guts being stabbed and the sound of blood squirting everywhere. I only remember this so vividly because we just woke up and I was eating yogurt and drinking orange juice. Not the best ambience. Strikes two, three, and four. Our shower happened to not work at all, which I understand, stuff happens. The manager was nice enough to comp our room for one night and offer us another room to shower in. Minus one strike. There’s plenty more we could write about in regards to the employees, but I’ll just sum it all up to as “management issues”. The whole stay was just bizarre. It would definitely be a five star review had the employees acted like actual employees in a hospitality environment. See More

I loved this charming little gem! My sister and I stayed across from the main building. We stayed in a two queen room which was perfect! I loved the old charm and updated amenities. I will say that an...yone that is use to a big ol bathroom in hotels would probably not care for this hotel. Ours had a tiny sink outside the toilet and shower area in the main space. It didn't bother me but sister prefers a bigger bathroom. It's location is great too, we were able to walk to all of Charlestons attractions and shopping areas. I would definitely stay again!

I had never been to Charleston, and a friend chose this place for our stay. My only regret is the time we had to spend.

If you are a lover of history, the "Old South" or even just Southern charm, I ...must recommend the Andrew Pinckney Inn. The historic area of Charleston is pricey, in my opinion, but if you want to walk everywhere and be treated to the full experience, give this a shot.

I know we all want luxurious rooms when spending the cash, but these rooms are more cozy than full of extras. In our room, there was no closet, but just a hanging area for a few bits of clothing - which was more than adequate - a dresser, two nightstands, a nice television, a well appointed bathroom with a nice shower and vanity and a small window over looking the city market. We were across the street from the main building (known as the Church Street building).

This is a historic hotel, so there seemed to be some residual noise from the hallways, doors shutting, and street traffic - even late into the evening. The inn is only four stories, so if you're looking for a sky scraper, this isn't your place. The top floor, however, serves as home to a lovely terrace, providing a great view to the east. On that terrace there is also a happy hour from 4-5pm with quite a spread of fruits, cheese, red and white wine, and a few other little snacks. A nice "extra" when dining out can start to add up. The morning breakfast was anything from "continental" with yogurt, hard boiled eggs, quiches, and an assortment of pastries and coffee. It was so nice to sit up there and watch the city begin to come to life in the morning.

Until the new upgrades are made this December, however, you may be best served to attempt to avoid rooms under the terrace, as you could find yourself at the mercy of inconsiderate guests who take to that area in the late evening and early morning hours.

The staff at the hotel, however, is one of the best amenities. Everyone, and I mean everyone, from the bellmen to the ladies and gentlemen running the happy hour went out of their way to be helpful with suggestions, requests, and even directions. The front desk also provided bottled water, so if you're gearing up for a walk around - which you will want to do since this place is right next to the city market and about a mile walk to the battery - you should stop by for some hydration. When you return, there's water, lemonade, coffee and cookies! In the Inn's lobby there is a huge book of restaurants and their current menus. This can help you make a tough choice!

Valet parking is onsite for $25 a night, and your stay also includes wifi - though it is quite spotty from time to time, so I wouldn't necessarily recommend this for business travelers.

All-in-all the staff and the location make this a great place for those who love history, walking, or may even want a little romantic getaway!

Beautiful hotel with spacious, clean, beautifully decorated rooms. The oversized bed was very comfortable. The lobby always had water and lemonade which was great after walking around in the July heat.... The location of the hotel is great- its walkable to pretty much everything. I would love
To stay here again on our next trip to Charleston.

We came here to stay one night during our honeymoon and the staff was so nice. They served us sparkling wine to celebrate. The rooftop breakfast is great too!!

The room was clean and comfortable however no bar and no pool made it a bit pricey for just a room the breakfast was good but in the sun in July it's just too hot to enjoy the rooftop

We have thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Every afternoon they have wine and cheese on the 4th floor out door balcony. The food for both breakfast and the "happy hour" has been excellent each day wit...h a slight change in menu. But it could change a little bit more if you stay here longer. The staff has been great and a real joy. They make you feel at home and very welcomed. See More

We stayed just one night prior to a cruise and found the hotel very lovely! We arrived early and our room wasn't ready yet so they stored our luggage and called us once the room was available. We go...t the room right over the lobby, facing the market. Beautiful room, comfy and clean. Breakfast was great, we enjoyed the cookies in the lobby, but missed the wine reception �. We will stay here again and recommend to our friends. See More

The Andrew Pinckney Inn was very quaint with Southern charm. Very accommodating to make space in a double bed room for a mobility scooter and even put a grab bar in the shower for us! There are eleva...tors. The only thing I wish it had was are refrigerator. The Inn is close to everything. The city market is 1 block away with great handmade items from talented artisans (spent way to much money!) The Low Country Bistro was recommended by the front desk and had great southern food, shrimp and grits, fried green tomatoes, mac and cheese, pulled pork and collard greens were to die for!! Yummy! Seafood restaurants close by. Have to stop at Breizh Pan Crepes. Authentic French cooking at its best!!! Owner has a sexy accent!! Haha. King Street is about 3 blocks away with lots of upscale shops and. Louis Vuitton store! Many restaurants and bars! So much to see in Charleston. Very southern charm feel!! Need at least 3 days or more! See More

We stayed in the St. Philip’s Suite for our honeymoon and it was perfectly romantic & charming, just like Charleston. Great location. Easy walking to the carriage tours, central market and great resta...urants. Room was very clean & the bed was super comfy. The staff was very helpful and the complimentary rooftop breakfast was delicious. We enjoyed our stay very much and will be coming back for an anniversary weekend. See More

The inn was nice and a great location for walking many of the historic sites. Unfortunately, I have mixed feelings about the front desk. We were in early and inquired about the possibility of early ...check in. Wouldn't you know it...our room was the LAST one cleaned by the housekeeper. Right around the 3:00 mark. I find i t hard to believe that it wouldn't have been possible to find a room with two beds to accommodate earlier check in. I was told the Valet Parking was $20 and was charged $25. Not that I don't have the extra $5; I just don't like surprises on my settlement bill. We were told about breakfast, but not the afternoon wine and cheese social. It would have been nice to know that if it was being offered to guests. There was no other way to find that out. Lastly, when checking out, the desk clerk never asked how our stay was. That is such a basic service-oriented part of assisting guests with check-out. Long story short; general disappointment with the service component of this inn. Never again will I choose the Andrew Pinkney Inn. Not when there are other options. Service matters and it is lacking at this property. See More

We had a fantastic stay at The Andrew Pinckney Inn 2 weeks ago!! From the time we pulled up to the valet parking till the time we left- everyone on staff was so friendly, kind, and helpful. We really ...enjoyed the wine & cheese happy hour as well as the continental breakfast on the terrace. Everything was so delicious and presented so nicely. Our group had a townhouse suite and a king room. Both were great. Clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. We were quite sad to leave, but look forward to coming back to Charleston again in the future! :) See More

I can't say enough good things about this Inn. From Sandy's warm greeting in the lobby, the amazing room with the double doors, the ambiance and to breakfast on the terrace, we felt that they were gen...uinely interested in our comfort. The location is perfect. And the coffee is good. If you want a small, intimate place to stay where the staff is warm and friendly and genuinely seems to care, this is the place for you. Highly recommend. See More

Room smelled like smoking room- when I asked to switch rooms, rude front desk lady said there were no other rooms. I asked for my money back and she suddenly found a room with a broken shade- this ho...tel is a rip off. They charge $509 for a room when you call that is only $200 online!! Not worth it and the breakfast area is outside in the freezing cold or you have to go to the 2nd floor and sit on a couch to eat!! My biggest regret was staying here!! See More

Amazing hospitality at Andrew Pinckney Inn in Charleston. Location is ideal and it was convenient to walk to all the interesting sites in the historic district including food and entertainment.

The... concerierge service was amazing and all staff so friendly and available at all hours for assistance for suggestions and arranging things to do and places to visit. They were so knowledgable as well about the historic and culture of Charleston.

Andre also made sure we were comfortable and happy with our accommodation.

Definitely recommend to friends and will return for another cultural and historical visit and rest and relaxation to now one of our favourite American cities.
