Planning a visit to Charleston to preview the real estate market? We'd like to offer our recommendations for the best accomodations, restaurants and recreation during your stay. We've provided a variety of hotels and locations so that you can stay near to the neighborhoods that most interest you.
And don't forget to contact a knowledgeable realtor, like Ann Evans of Prudential Carolina, prior to your visit. A professional agent will help you gain insight into current market conditions in Charleston and the surrounding area, as well as make any arrangements for previewing properties that are of interest to you.
We recommend the Ansonborough for three reasons:
1) Oversized rooms (unusual for most hotels downtown)
2) Superb room rates for the location
3) Free parking! (also, unusual for downtown)
The Ansonborough Inn's location is both central and convenient on Hasell Street. Tucked away just a block north of The Market Street area, the Inn is within easy walking distance of all of downtown Charleston's history, shops, and restaurants, but provides guests the ability to arrive and park without traffic congestion. From the front door you can also walk to the highly acclaimed SC Aquarium. The view from the rooftop terrace boasts views of the city's steeples, the New Cooper River Bridge and the USS Yorktown.
