Family Travel: The Boutique Hotel Experience At Hotel Indigo Mount Pleasant, South Carolina
Traveling with small children can oftentimes be a hectic experience but when it’s well planned out, it can be a fun-filled and exciting time full of long-lasting family memories. After all, research has shown that children remember their family vacations more than other moments from their childhood, including their own birthdays, holidays, or school events.
When it comes to the planning and picking out the right accommodations, it can consume more time than your actual getaway. With multiple people in different ages and stages, you want to make sure that everyone will be as comfortable as possible during your trip. With that being said, so many families are turning to boutique-style hotels for their stays. A boutique hotel has all of the class and comfort of a resort-style property while remaining (thankfully) affordable.
The Hotel Indigo in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina is a perfect example of a family-friendly property that is both posh and modern in style but practical and accessible for guests. Their modern, boutique-style accommodations help ensure a ‘stress-free stay,’ which is three words that every parent wants to hear and experience.
From the moment you walk in the front doors, you can’t help but notice the local Charleston flare in the hotel’s décor along with its Lowcountry charm. Plus, the staff and their smiles automatically say “Welcome home.” With over 158 guest rooms and seven suites, their comfortable beds, bedding, functional workspace and hardwood floors are both inviting and perfect for any kind of traveler. Eagle-eyed guests will notice the locally-inspired artwork and pop of color all throughout the interior, including the oversized wall mural of local revolutionary hero Eliza Lucas Pickney near the lobby elevators.
Inside, guests can taste a little of the local flavor at Eliza’s Bar + Kitchen. The area features comfortable seating and inspiring décor indicative of Charleston’s hospitality. Trust us when we say the kids won’t say no to their mac and cheese! Some of the modern dishes include the Eliza Benedict for breakfast – complete with fried green tomato, crabmeat and poached eggs – a full cocktail and dinner menu for parents and small but tasty late-night bites that include pickled shrimp, chicken and waffles, grilled oysters and so much more. There’s a convenience shop located near the front desk for snacks on the go.
Outdoors, your family will love the hotel’s resort-style oasis with pool, the numerous cabanas and sunchairs and even the corn hole games. You can also get a workout in at their brand-new state of the art health and fitness center. There’s even a chic yoga center that will help you find your Zen before exploring Charleston.
