Looking for a waterfront hotel in Charleston? Some descriptions of this hotel are not too accurate. It IS on the waterfront at a marina. The view is not really great from the patio. The hotel is in desperate need of an overall facelift. The hotel was not clean although the bathrooms did not have mold and mildew! We ate breakfast... More

Couldn't be more pleased with the hospitality and beauty of this property. Our room although nice was rather odd: it had the usual smallish sink and bathroom area, but had a full set of kitchen cabinets that ran the entire long wall in the bedroom area. You'd have to bring every item in your kitchen to fill these cabinets! Weird.... More

Wonderful staff. Very accommodating and friendly. Was able to check in via mobile app before arriving. Infused waters in the lobby at all times. The outdoor area was large with plenty of seating in and out of the sunshine. It was a bit cool for pool use ( though others did not think so)! A lovely huge fire pit was... More

The Marriott surpassed our expectations in every way. We stayed there for three nights at Easter. The rooms are excellent. The pool deck overlooking the marina is excellent and the staff most accommodating and the shuttle that takes you to downtown is very convenient as parking in the old city is a problem. Charleston is a wonderful city and we... More

My friend and I recently stayed at this facility. The views were amazing as we were upgraded to a waterview room. The facilities are awesome. This hotel is an easy 5 minute drive into the historic section but the hotel runs a shuttle service for $6.00 each way per person. With the cost of parking in the historic section, this... More
