We wanted to visit the city Charleston South Carolina and use some of our Marriott points. This place fit the bill. It was centrally located to everything, and was more upscale than the usual Residence Inn. There was a lovely pool with a wall of beautifully fragrant honeysuckle. Parking and the internet are included.
The breakfast each morning was excellent, and you could eat inside or outside by the pool. There were eggs, waffles, fruit as well as cereal and oatmeal. Plus lots of breakfast breads. The staff was very helpful, and gave excellent directions to the sites in the area. During the week there was a managers special served each night, Tuesday was a barbeque that included hamburgers, hot dogs and baked beans. We were not there another night when they served taco's. Coffee and tea are available 24 hours a day, as well as fresh fruit.
The rooms were clean and spacious, we had a kitchen that included everything you might need. Some rooms have balcony's but they were all taken when we arrived, it is first come first serve. You do have some say in which room you would like, the rear has the best views.
The location was perfect, we were about 7 miles from Folly Beach. We took a drive out to the very end to see the lighthouse, and walk around the beach out there. There are warning signs against swimming at the end because of the currents, but it was beautiful just the same. We were also close to downtown, just 5 minutes away. Parking is reasonable in the city for the day a dollar or two per hour. The suites all have kitchens, and there is a great grocery store just 2 miles away, the desk has written directions. The hotel provides a free shuttle in the evening into town, we used it several times, the last run is around 11:45. It drops you off right in the center of things near many of the restaurants.
We had a very relaxing and enjoyable week in Charleston, and the Marriott Residence Inn was part of it.
