  • Insider's Info

    Travelers are always looking for memorable and relaxing experiences.  Let’s discover more through the words of our innkeepers.  Many thanks to Andrew Jenkins for sharing his own secrets with!
    Why do most travelers stay at your inn?

    Most of our guests are here because of the rich history of Charleston, our dining options and the fact that the Andrew Pinckney is located in the heart of Charleston's Historic District.

    What are you best known for? What makes your inn unique? What do you love most about your inn?

    We are know for our service to our guests. No request is too big for us. Our inn is unique because both of our buildings date back to the 1830's and we have one of the few rooftop views of the Historic District. We offer a rooftop breakfast that is so pleasant! Guests enjoy a great breakfast while watching Charleston wake up each morning.

    If someone has never been to your city, what is the #1 reason to come visit?

    The number one reason to visit Charleston is for the food and the history! That's two though isn't it? So many of our guests love walking around this beautiful city during the day, and then enjoying some of America's best restaurants in the evening.

    What’s the best compliment you have ever received about the inn?

    I love when I hear guests say that they "felt like family" when they stayed with us.

    What’s the best kept secret about the area?

    The best kept secret in this area are the theaters. So many people overlook the vibrant theater scene in Charleston. The Spoleto Festival is not the only time that Charleston puts on a good show.

    If a traveler is staying at your inn for 4 nights, what should he/she do in the area?

    A guest staying longer than a weekend should take a tour of Fort Sumter, tour one of our many plantations, take in some shopping on King Street, and eat lots of local delights in our cafes and restaurants. There is so much to do in the area that we suggest that guests come with a plan of two or three things on their "must see" list and then just let the city guide them to other places of interest.

    Is there anything within walking distance of your inn?

    Most things are within walking distance of The Andrew Pinckney Inn. We are only a block and a half away from the city's Central Market and between both Meeting and East Bay Streets. We have a beautiful view of St. Phillip's Church from our lobby and there are many attractions within a 10 minute walk of our door.

    What is your favorite restaurant/food in the area?

    For seafood I prefer Hank's Seafood located only a few steps from our inn, and for cafe style and good southern cuisine I recommend Cru Cafe (also located on Pinckney Street). Guests can find any number of restaurants on their list within a 10-12 minute walk from us, so there is no shortage of options.

    Any good area guides/websites that travelers could reference? is a good place to start if you want to research the Charleston area.

    How many rooms does your inn have?

    We have 41 rooms total and 32 of them will have newly remodeled bathrooms beginning in February 2013.

    Do you accept pets?

    We do not accept pets.
