Charleston to Get More Hotels


Friendliest. Most polite. No. 1 tourist destination in North America in 2011. No. 1 tourist place on the planet in 2012.

The accolades have been pouring in for years on Charleston, with its rich history as the birthplace of the Civil War, bounty of great restaurants and baskets of coastal charm.

With 4.5 million tourists flocking to the city every year, a number that’s expected to grow as low-cost air carriers line up to bring them here, it was only a matter of time before developers saw the need for more rooms at the inns. Close to 1,500 new hotel rooms are being built or are in the planning stages on peninsular Charleston, a staggering 43.6 percent increase over the existing 3,281 rooms in the Holy City’s downtown area.
