Average hotel, decor in lobby very nice and funky, but our room wasn't fabulous. Very musty smelling, Bar and restaurant were good though and the town is lovely, full of history and very quaint. Don't miss waffle house down the road for the best breakfasts!

Marcus Poinsett helped us with the usual luggage and transit and restaurant recommendations, but I am recommending him for Employee of the Month because he actually knew--without looking---the menus and weekly specials of several 5 star restaurants. Way to keep up with local advice we travelers desperately need!

Our room was on the third floor. So is the outdoor terrace bar. Patrons of the bar, come and go through the guest room hallway. Aka: loud drunks, prank knocking on doors while walking down the hall towards the elevator. Obnoxious. This went on until after 2am. AC was minimal air flow. Air was stagnant. The bathroom sink was too... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your candid opinions of our hotel during your recent visit. I am sorry about the patrons on 3rd floor hallway...we try to discourage outsiders from using this hallway, but hotel guests can access the hallway to return to their guestrooms. We are planning a property "refresh" renovation beginning in summer of 2014...I... More

Recently went to Charleston on a conference and extended stay with my wife for a couple extra nights to explore. The hotel is a nice standard Marriott with comfortable rooms, a nice gym and a better than average concierge room. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel is a couple of miles from the action so I would... More

A fine night's stay at this Marriott. Great room, wonderful service and friendly staff! Comfortable rooms-although I couldn't set the temperature very well. Concierge staff recommended fine restaurants too. The fitness room is a bit small for my taste -so I took my run through the streets if Charleston-much better. The club lounge offered hot bites and drinks to my... More

My husband and I arrived at this Marriott at 5pm on Sunday, April 6, 2014. We were surprised that no rooms were ready for check-in. It appeared from the crowd that this affected several people. They were kind enough to give us $30 credit each in the hotel restaurant. We used the credit but since we were in Charleston for... More

Had a short stay here, and did not get to use many of the facilities. They have outdoor fire pits, and it is great to sit around them with a conversation or a drink. The room was extremely quiet, comfortable. The furniture has some wood carving, a pineapple on the headboard, which set it apart from typical chain hotel furniture.... More

Definitely expected more for the price. During the time I was here, the price was $370. I was disappointed and angry that the club lounge was closed on weekends. The pool is mediocre and there is only one hot tub. There is nothing special about this hotel, Econo Lodge has more features and is nicer. Starwood does not treat their... More

I am sorry you were disapointed in your visit... Sounds like you were expecting "Las Vegas" with multiple hot tubs and multiple pools and not sure what super-deluxe Econo Lodge you are referring to. We are a full-service Marriott hotel in historic Charleston, SC. We just renovated our whole pool area last spring and have received great reviews from most... More

Stay here when I visit my brother in Charleston, friendly service, very clean rooms, great amentities, I would recommend this for your stay in the Charleston area. Downtown Marriott is also great but more expensive. If you don't have a car I'd stay downtown, otherwise stay here.

My husband took me to Charleston for my 50th birthday weekend. The Charleston Marriott was excellent; very clean and had everything I needed. The concierge, Sherrie, was so wonderful and gave my husband all information he needed to plan a perfect weekend. She shared a list of restaurants, attractions and even circled the ones that she recommended. On the first... More
