This was not our first trip to Charleston, but was our first to the Hotel Emeline, and we could not have been more impressed. They have done an amazing job of offering an upscale feel and experience, but making the ambiance laid-back at the same time. The lay-out and décor are unique to Charleston, and the restaurant offered that same high-end, laid back feel, and it was easy on the wallet.

Hotel's Favorite
Everything during our stay at Emeline was absolutely beautiful. Not only was the decor and aesthetic perfect, but everyone we came in contact with was so friendly and welcoming. Kevin was awesome and even sent us home with some goodies for the road trip back to Charlotte. The restaurant (Frannie and the Fox) is always one of our highlights when visiting- highly recommend the Negroni and tomato toast 🙂 They have kept the small details in mind when curating the hotel. Things like the water bottles in the gym for after a sweaty Peloton ride, the water stations for easy refills on every floor, free room service coffee and cute bike rentals to scoot around town on really make your stay extra special. Can’t wait to come back!

We took our family of 5 to this new hotel in Charleston for a long weekend. It is a beautiful hotel with a great location. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed. We loved the record player in our room. It was a nice touch. My favorite was the free morning coffee delivered to our room each morning! The staff is friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this property.

Couldn't be more impressed with this hotel and staff. I've worked in the hotel industry for many years and I was blown away with the incredible dedication Thomas (Hotel Manager) and his team have to making this place special. From the Doorperson, to the Front Desk Agents, waiters/waitresses to housekeepers, the entire staff could not have been more accommodating. The hotel is brand new and the aesthetics are fantastic, couldn't have been more comfortable in the room. Not to be forgotten, the Restaurant Frannie and the Fox is fantastic!!!!! Shout out to our waitress from NY who recently relocated to Charleston (sorry I missed her name)! Cant wait to visit again.

The Emeline, a boutique hotel is in the center of Charleston. It’s the perfect location to walk to everything. The coffee shop, and restaurant are both delightful as is the heated court yard with the fireplace.
