Overlooking Charleston Market, this "quiet hotel" opened nine years ago, but has eighteenth-century decor accented by creams and gold with red and blue touches. Guests socialize over complimentary wine and cheese in the early evening. while treats like M&M's, lemonade, and coffee "are always out for your enjoyment." Rooms and suites have 14-foot ceilings and bathrooms in black and white tile, gold wallpaper, and black marble counters. "A surprising change from the typical Charleston shrimp and grits," the menu at Tristan includes items like New Zealand lamb. "We were pampered the entire stay."
