I have been to Charleston many times, and usually use Marriott properties, but have never stayed here. Another person in our group reserved the rooms for 6 of us, and we could not have been more pleased. We had 2 - 2 bedroom suites, which were great. I am one of the folks who had to sleep on the sofa... More

Our trip to Charleston was, unfortunately, for a visit to the nearby MUSC where I accompanied a family member who underwent a serious surgical procedure. From beginning to end, the staff at the hotel went above and beyond to make the best of a difficult time. Lauren at the front desk took our reservation and accomodated our special requests. Upon...

This is a nice well kept hotel. We had a suite room with two bedrooms and it was perfect. This hotel isn't walking distance to the city though so you need to take a taxi if you don't have a car. Charleston is a very nice - but the taxi service that they promote / use ( seven star luxury)... More

A fine example of Marriott quality and performance. Exceptionally clean inside and out. The two bedroom Suit was just perfect for two couples or a large family. A great location in a very nice neighborhood and free shuttle service to downtown every half hour beginning at 5:30 p.m. This makes sight seeing and dinning in the downtown area worry free.... More

I really love Residence Inn and always enjoy staying at one. This is no exception - great location just outside Historic Charleston but very quiet (no noise from a highway). Each night during the week there was a Happy Hour with food and wine, which was great. The hot breakfast every morning was very good too. Rooms were comfortable and... More

From the time we checked in, we were impressed with the nice smells coming from the Lobby. NO waiting for our room, it was ready. The room was huge with two separate bedrooms and a kitchen. I always check for dirty beds, bathrooms, etc. and was so pleased how clean everything was. If you want to cook your meals, there's... More

We really enjoy the convenience of this location to our dinner cruise event which is over at Patriot's Point. Marriott quality can always be trusted to be excellent. We arrived late, but that was no problem. They were ready for us. A special treat this year was to find a cute loggerhead turtle made from a folded towel atop our... More

From the time we checked in until 4 days later when we checked out we experienced a delightful stay with the Residence Inn. Breakfast was included and my sister is gluten intolerant. She asked about choices for breakfast and the staff told her they would go shopping for her. They asked her what she wanted and went out of the... More

We recently spent three nights at the Residence Inn Charleston Downtown. The rooms were nice but I was very disappointed that they did not honor our request for a King Size Bed. My Husband is a Platinum Plus Member and the request should have been honored. The front staff is great and very accomodating. The free shuttle bus downtown is... More
