The question for me was where to stay. I wanted to get the best bang for my buck. The Hotel where the conference was held was a bit above my budget, plus you had to pay for parking. Most of the other hotels in that area were about the same price or higher. So I consulted the Holiday Inn website. I found one that was reasonable and had an amazing view of the Charleston skyline. The Holiday Inn Charleston-Riverview
I had read the reviews and for the most part they were positive. Everyone spoke of the amazing view.
I couldn't wait to look out my room window to see the view that was promised.
Oh no! The waffle house:-) That was my view from my window. I thought that would be the extent of my viewing pleasure but boy was I wrong. The view from the restaurant was amazing. I sat there for hours during breakfast and dinner taking in the amazing view….
I enjoyed the good food at the hotel restaurant. Yum:-)
I also had fun playing with my zoom lens on my Nikon P510…
It was overcast and rainy the entire time I was there. It did not matter though. The conference was such fun. The hotel was clean and comfortable with very friendly people. It was a $10.00 taxi trip into the city so I did not have to drive. The view and the food were top notch. Would I go back? Yes. My daughter and I want to take a trip to Charleston to explore the city and I think this is where we will stay:-)
Get out and explore!
