I stay at the Marriott Charleston Waterfront frequently for business, but I hadn't stayed there for pleasure until our stay in late June. Staying over the weekend allowed me to experience the hotel in a whole new way, and I was delighted with the experience. The little details made the difference: cold citrus-infused water in the lobby, a bag of... More

What a beautiful view of the waterfront. Nice hotel with well maintained grounds. The staff was wonderful, cheerful and very helpful. Location is great, close to downtown Charleston. The patio area was large with lots of comfy furniture to relax on. The only thing was the pool could of been cleaner. I know it is close to the marina but... More

This is by far my favorite hotel in Charleston- it is downtown, close to everything, and in an AMAZING location right off the water with a great view. It is right by the marina and the boats are so beautiful to look at, especially when enjoying cocktails out on the patio at sunset, one of my family's favorite things to... More

Nice low key place to relax, great patio and pool. Close to all attractions without the hassles of parking downtown. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Nice hotel, very pretty with nice grounds. Loved the pool area with the large deck, and bar right inside. Very nice at dusk, lots of families enjoying the sunset. Very quiet area, even though it is in a busy area. I thought the dock area could have been a little better kept but we didn't really spend much time there... More

I have stayed at many Marriott Hotels, and this one is very pretty. However, that is where the charm ended for us. The room was clean and nice, but the pool had zillions of palmetto bugs everywhere. It was really gross, and they need an exterminator, stat. My kids freaked and we had to leave the pool. When we checked... More

We are so sorry to learn of your recent experience at a Marriott in Florida.

You might see a few mosquitos, a palmetto bug or even dolphins... More

Stayed for three nights this past weekend and absolutely loved it. There was a little wall damage in the bathroom net to the shower that I had seen in a previous picture, but it's likely just from idiots that didn't properly close the shower curtain. Other than that, the property was beautiful and spotless. It was about a 30-35 minute... More

We appreciate hearing the good and the bad. This guest had the room type they reserved available for them. They requested the same room type on a high floor when they checked in.

Not only is this property beautiful, but the friendly and helpful staff absolutely made our stay in Charlestown. Mama at the front desk was probably the best hotel and city ambassador I've come across. We'll be back!
