Charleston has a great variety of accommodations, including world-class hotels, historic inns, bed-and-breakfasts, economy hotel chains and beach-house rentals. There are many choices in the Historic District, as well as along Highway 17.
In general, the farther away from the downtown district you go, the less expensive accommodations will be (unless you're heading in the direction of a beach). If you're looking for affordability, you'll probably find that the best bargains are hotels in the North Charleston area. Rates are highest during special events such as Spoleto USA, the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition, and the annual fall and spring home tours.
High season is the fall and spring, although summer and winter are becoming almost equally expensive as Charleston gains popularity with travelers. Book as far in advance as possible.
