As the first hotel in the Charleston area to achieve LEED certification, we are excited to receive a guided tour by Samantha Borgen. Samantha Borgen is the Director of Facilities and Construction at the Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina who is responsible for the management of capital improvement projects and the maintenance of all resort facilities.
