Family friendly hotels and restaurants

Family friendly hotels and restaurants:  Frommer's picks bets places to stay and eat in Charleston, S.C.
/ Source:


Ansonborough Inn
This is a good value for families who want to stay in one of the historic inns. Many of the high-ceilinged rooms in this converted warehouse have sleeping lofts.

Best Western King Charles Inn
This is one of the best family values in Charleston. Children 18 and under stay free in their parent's room. The location is only a block from the historic district's market area.

Doubletree Guest Suites
This is a good choice for families who want extra space and a place to prepare meals. Some suites are bi-level, giving families more privacy.


Southern hospitality and charm keep this place buzzing day and night. Lunch is the best time for families and children. An array of soups, appetizers, salads, sandwiches, and pastas is available. But in-the-know local kids go easy on these items, saving room for homemade fare such as the warm cream-cheese brownie with white-chocolate ice cream and chocolate sauce.

Hominy Grill
Locally loved, this grill has been a friendly, homelike family favorite since 1996. Fair prices, good food, and an inviting atmosphere lure visitors to sample an array of Southern specialties at breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
