Where to stay in Charleston?

Andrew Pinckney Inn, Pinckney St., Charleston, S.C.

I've used this photo before but it fit this evening's question. I need to ask you all to help out a reader again. Here is her request:

May I ask a question, Joan? My husband (aka Mr. Brattcat), a dear friend, and I are planning a visit to your fair city next month. I know you've stepped inadvertently into the wedding planning business with Katie's request, but could I ask if you or one of your followers could suggest a B&B or a hotel that is not too glitsy/touristy? We're looking for some real old Charleston experiences and are eager for suggestions. Thanks!

The catch is, that most of us who live here never stay in the hotels. Who can help? Where should they stay?
