Visiting Charleston and the Islands

8 posts in this topic

My daughter, husband and 2 1/2 year old are planning on coming to Charleston in May? Firstly what's a good hotel/suite- type for them to stay in?

Other question, which island would you recommend as the most family oriented? Any hotel referrals?

Thanks so much!

There's not that many hotels on the islands. Your best bet is downtown. There are tons of hotels or B&Bs to choose from. This time of year you will good deals on rooms since its the off-season for tourists.

The Isle of Palms would probably be your best bet. It is a little more tourist oriented. Also, just across the intracoastal is Mount Pleasant Town Center and a several hotels. From that area, you are only a few minutes (traffic notwithstanding) from downtown, near Boone Hall Planation and a trip around I-526 from Middleton Place, Magnolia Gardens, etc. Just my 2 cents.

Yes I mean beaches/islands. This would be happening in early May.

They can afford the best- but they do have a 2.5 year old beautiful (might I add) little girl. The hotel should be a little more family oriented.

When you say she should stay downtown, do you mean Charleston? doh And is there a particular hotel/motel that is best for kids?

If they want the best and an ideal family vacation arrangement, they should rent a beach house on Sullivan's Island or (2nd choice) the Isle of Palms.

Fully furnished, on the ocean, most come with bicycles to use.

There just arent a lot of hotels that are actually ON the beach. There are a lot more downtown. But if your goal is to spend more time on the beaches, then you may not want to look downtown. Your best bet is probably a rental house as Native_Son suggested.

Which rental firm should I call to find a beach house. I know word of mouth is always the best, but in our case, not.
