I’ll be interested in your projections for the two 5* since they are priced widely apart.

Maps and Hotels site shows 17 hotels available for my date, areas and star rating and only two of those are under 300, namely Francis Marion Hotel and Andrew Pinckney Inn.

My budget is 225

We will start with the hotels that are within (or at least close to) your budget as it's not a good use of time and resources to research hotels that are not ready to be purchased if they are $100+ beyond what you're wiling to pay for a room for this trip.

 

Best guess comments (confirm your dates on the landing pages of any links provided below):

 

4* Downtown Charleston - Historic District for $213
Business Center
Restaurant
Free Internet
Fitness Center
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
==> Francis Marion Hotel

 

4.5* Downtown Charleston - Historic District for $233 ($179 when you click on the offer)
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
==> The Vendue

 

5* Downtown Charleston - Historic District for $224
Pets Allowed
Business Center
Restaurant
Free Internet
Indoor or Outdoor Pool
Fitness Center
No Smoking Rooms/Facilities
==> Belmond Charleston Place

 

I don't have a guess for either of the 4* HOTWIRE hotels and the 5* is way over budget.  With Downtown area being your preferred zone, many of the hotels above having excellent reviews, is it necessary to further research the French Quarter properties since that is your second choice of zone and/or don't offer any savings over the properties above (which are in your first choice of zone)?

 

Do any of the properties above work for your needs?

During my research of the Charleston Historic District, I found that the Hotwire area map of Historic Charleston Downtown plus Charleston French Quarter matched closely to the Priceline area map for Downtown Charleston-Historic District.  This was why I had included French Quarter (Hotwire) in my original post.

Thereuare you did drill down on my long post, and the Priceline deals did seem better, plus I have only booked Priceline deals from this site, so your response certainly made sense.

I did use your PRICELINE link to the 5* 224, then confirmed everything and when I clicked through it was The Belmond.  I’m looking forward to this stay and really appreciate your efforts.
