I booked this property for our annual family reunion, which had 17 people attend. 12 of us stayed in the property (the other 5 stayed in nearby hotels) which we all used as our "home base" for some meals, preparing for outings, etc. The property is well appointed and clean. VERY comfortable beds. With a little planning we found the updated 2 1/2 bathrooms to be more than adequate for our needs. The washer and dryer came in handy after one of the toddlers had a clothing "incident." The kitchen is minimally but adequately stocked with enough utensils and cookware to prepare a large meal. The living area offers a nice flat screen tv with a large cable package (our visit was during football season, you know) and plenty of comfortable seating. We utilized both the inside and outside porch dining areas during our stay.
The best feature of all is that the property is located within walking distance of most of Charleston proper's many offerings - the Market, Waterfront Park, The Battery, restaurants (don't miss The Brown Dog Deli for lunch"), museums, churches, carriage rides, ghost tours, etc. Other than making one run to a local shopping center for supplies the cars stayed parked in either the adjacent lot or the public lot down Queen St. Uber is readily available, also - 5 of us went to tour Fort Sumter and were running late in returning for dinner, so we "Ubered" back - there were 7 Uber drivers close and available to take our call.
The luggage elevator wasn't working properly when we arrived, so I called Lizzie (property manager) and the elevator repairman arrived within 5 minutes. Using the spiral staircase was no problem for us. Lizzie provided great service regarding that issue as well as through the entire rental process.
Family friendly, comfortable, clean, terrific location!
We stayed at 120 Meeting St. in June of this year for a family vacation: there were 10 of us, ranging in age from 5 to 72 years old. We had a great time, and loved how staying in a historical building added to our overall experience of Charleston. The condo was clean, nicely decorated with updated bathrooms, the beds and couches were comfortable, and we felt that there was plenty of space for a group of our size. The property manager was excellent and responded immediately to any concerns or inquiries.
As far as location, you simply cannot beat this place. It is on a corner, so the views of surrounding streets are great…we had no issues with noise, and were only a short walk from Market Street, King Street, the waterfront, etc. The best restaurants in the city are a few minutes away on foot.
Only two minor drawbacks, and neither is really a problem if you plan ahead: First, there is no parking on the premises and you will have to use a city lot, so be sure to plan and budget accordingly. Second, the condo is only accessible via a spiral staircase, which again is not a problem as long as nobody in your group has an issue with stairs and you aren't bringing extremely heavy luggage.
Overall, I would highly recommend this place!
My family and I had a wonderful time in Charleston. We were there for several days as we prepared for the festivities of my sister's wedding. 120 Meeting St. was the perfect location for this celebration, as St. Philip's church and the William Aiken House are in such close proximity. It was in an excellent state of cleanliness, filled with all of the kitchen and bathroom essentials needed for the trip, and had plenty of space for our large group to gather and relax in. The bathrooms were beautifully updated, and really made for a "hotel" like feel.
There were a few bumps in the road (the washer wasn't working, and one of the air conditioning units wasn't providing cool air), but these issues were resolved IMMEDIATELY. Parking was not readily available onsite, but there were several parking garages nearby, with rates of $18-20 for the day. A big thank you goes to LIzzy in the remedy of any issues that came up - it was great to know that we would be taken care of with no worries.
One of our favorite parts of the stay, was being able to enjoy the beautiful porch out front. It was a breezy and relaxing space, which provided our family with a sweet opportunity to enjoy time together even into the early hours of the morning.
