This hotel is located in a great area for touring the city on foot. It's clean, well kept, and provided a comfortable stay. If you're a Marriott loyalist and expecting to find perks normally associated with a renaissance, you need to know this hotel doesn't have a club lounge. Had I known that, I may have selected a Marriott eith... More

Great location and service is top notch. We stayed in the Linden Suite with another couple. The room was very spacious and comfortable. Our room was right across from the elevator so we could here the dinging of the elevator every time it stopped at our floor. A bit annoying, is there really a need for that? The staff were... More

This is a lovely hotel in the heart of the historic district. The historic district is fascinating. There are wonderful historic homes with amazing history and great period architecture. In general the historic district tends to be crowded so the small quiet atmosphere of the hotel was refreshing. The hotel is just off of King St which has a raft... More

My husband had a business trip in Charleston, my son and I tagged along. Nice hotel, room was big enough for us. There was a small love seat that pulled out to a bed. My husband stayed in the room for several hours one day working on his computer and had the "Do Not Disturb" sign up while I took... More

Picked this hotel based on what I usually find in a Renaissance across the country. Had a number of cheaper Marriott and other options for my trip. When I checked in they informed me they don't have a consierge lounge. In fact the front desk person said he never worked at a Marriott property that had one (mostly Courtyards). Didn't... More

We arrived at night and the area as expected in historic area, is not fascinating. However we were told there is safety in town and the hotel is impecable and the halls smelled beautiful. The customer service at all levels is outstanding. Asked for room away from elevator and were glad. The walls seemed thin and noises go through. The... More

I've been going to Charleston for 20 years and stayed in a few of the top 5 hotels in the city (one is just a block away) and just discovered this place while we were shopping for a last minute hotel deal for Thanksgiving weekend. The location is perfectly set between King and Meeting Streets. Our room was very large... More

Loved the location and service of this hotel. The room was perfectly fine as well. My only "complaint" was I found this to be a very expensive city to stay in, therefore, this hotel was a bit pricey for me. But, compared with other slightly cheaper and less centrally located venues, it was no question we went with a great... More

My bf booked this hotel at the last minute as the rates had dropped lower than another hotel we had booked. One cannot complain about the location as it is close to just about anything you'd like to do and see in Charleston. They have bikes you can use (free of charge!). Yes the carpets in the hall and the... More
