Top 10 Accessible Hotels in Charleston
By: Danielle Max | Jun 6 2017

There are plenty of options for staying close to the Historic Downtown sites of Charleston – and with parking at a premium in the city, the less you have to rely on the car, the better. If you choose to stay further out of the city, many hotels offer shuttles, meaning the sights are just a short ride away. Once you are done exploring the city, head out into the surrounding area to explore the plantations, historic houses and nature close to Charleston.
