Wondering where to take Dad or your special man for a drivable getaway this summer? Look no further than the charming city of Charleston, SC. With so many lovely choices of places to stay in this beautiful city, it can be a difficult decision. Perhaps I can make it easier by sharing three exceptional boutique hotels, all very different but each boasting hospitality and unique guest amenities.
If you are looking for a charming oceanfront boutique hotel with a West Indies feel, check into the HarbourView Inn. This boutique inn is perfect for families or adults traveling without the kiddos. Breakfast is served to your room every morning or served on the beautiful rooftop terrace with gorgeous views of the ocean and the city. Each evening, wine and cheese happy hour is offered to guests, following later at night with milk and cookies - a favorite of both the kids and adult guests.
If you are looking for a true adult getaway with sophistication and your own private butler, The Spectator offers a James Bond meets Duke Ellington feel throughout the property. The Spectator also houses The Bar, a quaint and elegant place for a cocktail before leaving for dinner on the town.
The French Quarter Inn is where luxe meets Lowcountry. The spacious guest rooms have rococo-style beds, which I enjoyed, oh la la! The property also boasts a beautiful outdoor patio where guests can enjoy early evening wine and cheese served nightly.
All three hotels, right in the heart of city, are walkable to shopping, dining and sights that make the city of Charleston so very charming.
