Book Your Charleston Hotel


You're already thinking about touring Charleston's historic district, laying out on a sun-kissed beach, closing that business deal, or strolling through one of the Lowcountry's gorgeous plantations. Now it's time to choose home base for your trip. Pick the perfect location to help you explore the tours and attractions at the top of your list with ease.


Charleston Private Concierge Service

Bring a Charleston Expert with You

For guests and groups who would prefer the company and expertise of a Charleston local well versed in Lowcountry knowledge during their trip, we offer our personal concierge service. Guests will be escorted by their personal concierge throughout their daily activities in Charleston. The concierge can also handle any pre-trip planning and reservations according to the guest's requests.


Airport Shuttle & Taxi Service

Shuttle and taxi services operate in the central median just outside of baggage claim at the Charleston International Airport. Hotel shuttles, ride share transportation, and off-site rental car transport shuttles are also located in front of the Charleston International Airport terminal. Ground transportation begins in the early morning hours (typically around 5:00 am) and runs until shortly after the last flight of the day arrives (usually around 12:30 am).



Charleston Portrait Photography

A Trip to Charleston is the Perfect Reason to Schedule a Photoshoot!

A trip to Charleston is an optimal time to schedule a professional photo shoot. Visitors are already joined together with loved ones, and a more beautiful backdrop is hard to find. Photographers can meet guests on location for a traditional photo shoot, or incorporate more of a photojournalistic style in an extended shoot to document the day's activity. These Charleston photography pros can also help out with a surprise proposal shoot, engagement session, or family portraits. Call 843-633-1338 to check availability and schedule your photo shoot.

Client Testimonials

  • A Charleston resident suggested a Traveling Ink concierge might be able to help me. It didn’t take long for me to realize that this was one of the best pieces of advice I could have received. My friends thought I was an organizational wizard even though I kept telling them it was Traveling Ink, not me.

  • We so enjoyed our time in Charleston. Thank you for all your insight! I am recommending your services to everyone I know who is traveling to Charleston!

    ~Kathryn C.
  • Traveling Ink planned the three full days we would have in Charleston, how we would get from one place to another, places to eat, and what the costs would be. To add to the challenge, we had to change the day of one of the main attractions because rain had been predicted. They handled all the changes with out missing a step.

    ~ Harriett H.
  • These Charleston pros do a phenomenal job in any setting. Audra was our point person and is a pleasure to work with. She is laid back and can work with any request.
