During our spring break visit to Charleston, South Carolina, we stayed at the Lodge Alley Inn.
The inn is a collection of 18th century warehouses that surround this beautiful courtyard. The interiors are modern, but they still have the two foot thick walls. Some say the ghosts of cotton merchants still walk there, but we didn't encounter any.
This is from the balcony of our room.
The resort is in historic Charleston, and there is no parking. There is a parking garage where valets park your vehicle. We did not get in our car from the time we got there Sunday night until we left on Friday morning. We sometimes used free trolleys that came right in front of the resort, but most of the things we did were within walking distance.
This is the actual Lodge Alley that the inn was named for. From the street at the end of this alley, it is only two blocks to the City Market. More about that later.
From the front of the resort, the water front is three blocks. More about that later, too.
