    Very comfortable and pet friendly

    The hotel is pet friendly, no fee, no fuss. The staff is great and the neighborhood is walkable. We enjoyed a late lunch at Grill Mark: good food and happy people.

    Great location

    Great staff, but not overly clean. The rooms and building feel a bit "worn".

    Great SC Capital location

    We booked this place because of being downtown at pet friendly. Ultra Modern hotel with a great staff.

    Great dog-friendly location!

    This hotel was great! Nice, new, and modern feel. Great location with lots of dinner options in walking distance and parks close by. Not much space for potty breaks, but enough to get the job done. Our room was kind of small, but overall nice. Recommend this hotel!

    Lively atmosphere dogs will love

    First the PROS: excellent and responsive staff. Lively evening scene (but wholesome) in the lobby area. Attentive and helpful valet. Quiet city neighborhood. And in the morning: A truly great kitchen for your carry-away breakfasts (or grab and eat lobby-side or in one of 2 beautiful semi-outdoor areas), which are made-to-order.

    CONS: the entire floor where our room was located smelled terrible. Really, gross, actually, but not the room. The room (chic room design!) had a very noisy lav barn door but heavy and loud enough to wake up everyone sleeping). It also looked MOSTLY cleaned, but maybe not religiously. Finally, there was a noise problem due to extraordinarily thin walls (and floors, and ceilings) to the point where we could hear quiet conversations taking place in the bathrooms of nearby guests. I'd come again, but I'd come prepared for the smells and the sounds.

    Great place for staying with a dog!

    Enjoyed our stay! Room set up well for people and pet; staff very friendly and welcoming of our little furry Izzy.

    Fine place for pups

    Downtown location, parking not included so a bit pricey. Capitol is just down the street & makes for pleasant walk. A drink in the lobby included a visiting Australian Shepherd so very pleasant for all concerned.. Pup gave 5 paws up but owner dinged a bone for pricier accommodation. Still, a fine choice.

    Cute hotel

    Like other Alofts, this hotel is playful, and my dog loved the milk bones and frisbee that he got. It was also clean, had very friendly staff, and it was in a central location with restaurants and coffee shops nearby.

    Good Location / Very Friendly

    We brought our 18 week old puppy. This was his first hotel stay. They were very accommodating to put us in a quiet corner and they were very friendly. Also nearby were several great restaurants outside seating that allow dogs. In fact the taco restaurant attached to the hotel was very dog friendly.
