Where do I begin with Charleston. If you have ever been you know just how dreamy and awe inspiring it's cobblestone streets, ancient oak trees, and pastels are. I moved to Charleston spring of 2014 and it was a great move. Charleston is basically a college student's playground, home to College of Charleston and The Citadel. My days were filled with long walks along The Battery, warm cups of lavender lattes, and way to many credit card bills from J. Crew. It was a dream that I hope to move back to after I finish my time in Providence.
I will always recommend either the Embassy Suites Charleston or Courtyard Marriott Charleston. Both are located in the center of King Street and on Marion Square Park; beautiful, fun, safe areas right in the heart of the action. Both of these hotels offer great amenities and are well worth the price! There are also many boutique hotels in Charleston, but I have never stayed in them, I'm sure they are beautiful though!
Do visit the College of Charleston!! The Cistern is one of the most iconic Charleston buildings and you can usually find artists, musicians, and many locals lounging on the lawn in front. The campus is drop dead gorgeous.
