La Quinta Inn & Suites If you haven't stayed at the Charleston Riverview, La Quinta lately, you haven't experienced the benefits of the recent renovations. The typical go-to lodging for budget conscious travelers, La Quinta Inn & Suites, Charleston Riverview was widely known for its proximity to Charleston and all the historical sites, plantations, museums, tours the city has to offer as well as for the lovely views of the Ashley River from some rooms. The dock right in front of the hotel made some touring, sailing and leisure daytrips quite convenient as did the shuttle service from the hotel to Charleston so that stress of driving in an unfamiliar town and inconvenient parking costs could be avoided.
While these amenities are all still available, the major difference is that the folks at La Quinta Inn & Suites have paid attention to past reviews and feedback in order to improve service and guest comfort. Rooms have been renovated and updated, repairs have been completed and you will see some new faces at the La Quinta as well; service staff with an understanding that the customer's comfort is paramount.
The complimentary breakfast is still outstanding; the complimentary fitness room is available to guests as are the crystal blue outdoor pool, guest laundry facility and valet dry cleaning. La Quinta is close to many fine restaurants in the area but also boasts its own, in-house restaurant for those just too pleasantly exhausted after a day of site seeing to leave the comfort of the hotel.
Inside the standard guestrooms, some of which are non-smoking rooms, you will find the customary hairdryer and coffee amenities as well as some new extras like a data port phone with voicemail and free local calls, wireless Internet service and 25 inch television with expanded cable service and The La Quinta's signature, firm mattress.
Deluxe rooms come with a microwave and refrigerator to promote guest comfort in stocking up for those between meal treats, drinks and mid-night snacks. This feature is particularly appreciated by family travelers for whom the added amenities of sleeper sofa, crib service and roll away beds would be useful. La Quinta Inn & Suites, Charleston Riverview is also a pet-friendly hotel for smaller animals so the entire family can enjoy vacation time in Charleston.
Meeting space and business conveniences can also be found at the renovated La Quinta including photocopy service, computer use, fax service and audio-visual equipment rental to provide for boardroom and business meeting needs. For unrivalled location and views, the renovations, family friendliness and convenient pricing, the updated La Quinta Inn & Suites, Riverview Charleston earns a 3-Diamond rating.
