Andrew Pinckney Inn – Moderate Luxury
If your desires are a bit more modest, and you prefer being a bit more centrally located, then the Andrew Pinckney Inn may be just the thing you are looking for.
We found the Andrew Pinckney in to be absolutely delightful! Exquisitely appointed, richly appointed, friendly and welcoming, and as we said, in a location that makes enjoying the rest of Charleston a comfortable stroll.
It is situated just a short walk from the Market, and many of the city’s most delectable restaurants as well. Getting to the waterfront is also a stones throw.
But, what about the inn? As you approach the inn, and take in its rich golden exterior, you just know that it has to be great on the inside too. And, you would not be mistaken.
Upon entering the lobby area, you are immediately treated to the warm hues of weathered and worn brick, the textured grains of the timbered ceilings, and the suppleness of distressed leather sofas. And, this is just the beginning.
As you ease open the door to your room, the soothing color palette of light blues, sage greens, chocolates and creams invite you to settle back and let your cares ebb away. The rooms are quiet sanctuaries simple upscale furnishings. Understated elegance comes to mind.
In the morning you’re invited to enjoy breakfast on the rooftop veranda. In the afternoon take in a seasonal welcome reception.
We think you will find the Andrew Pinckney Inn a completely enjoyable experience.
