“Walking Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

This hotel was situated in the center of the city...so walking to various areas was great. If you do not like to walk, you should choose a different hotel closer to what you wish to see or take a bicycle taxi. Our room was nice with king bed, desk and comfortable chair and ottoman. I requested robes and an additional luggage rack which they quickly accommodated. The only food we ate at the hotel was tapas and wine in the bar one afternoon. It was quite good as the bartender made recommendations.

We typically stay in a bed and breakfast while in Charleston but wanted to try something different for a change. We would return to this hotel again.

Room Tip: High floor with a view if possible.

Nice rooms, but let down by very small public areas.A bar that shuts at 11pm even at weekends. I was attending a convention at the hotel and on Friday and Saturday with nearly 30-40 people wanting drinks and all residents the bar shut!!!! Nice but small pool and lounge area. $20 for a breakfast very expensive. Beds comfortable, bathroom clean. Overall average but expected better.

This hotel was in the perfect spot for our first trip to charleston without a car. Took a taxi from the airport instead of a shuttle which was a great move for the four of us and it only took 15 minutes instead of an hour shuttle. The concierge at the hotel was wonderful in setting up everything we wanted to do including a fantastic walking historical tour with Tom and directing us on an evening home and garden tour. We had purchased the breakfast package with our rooms which also was wonderful. I would recommend doing this. Rooms were nice and big and spacious, and well appointed. There is a bar and restaurant along with pool and fitness room. Walking distance to everything.

One of the reasons I like the Marriott brand is the consistency. The rooms are always clean, beds comfortable, staff friendly but not intrusive. The Renaissance Charleston is an older hotel but well-kept. My friend had a military discount (which is not good on Fri/Sat nites) and $137 is a bargain for this area. That same hotel can run $400+ for the same room. Proximity to King St. is nice, but if money is not an issue, I'd stay at the Vendue Inn on the other end (by the water) of the historic district. The elevator is fast (only 5 floors), lobby nice, plus to have a bar on site. We didn't have a car here but the valet parking was over $20. Only other negative is that there is no sink outside of the bathroom. Staff is well-trained and questions were answered promptly. The lady at the concierge was more than willing to make dinner reservations and assist with tours.

I had a great stay for business while in Charleston. My room was comfortable and the doorman and front desk associate was amazing. They were upbeat, friendly and went out of their way to help me feel comfortable. The gym is nicely equipped and the pool is private. Stay on the 3rd floor where the amenities are at, with easy access.

Room Tip: Rooms are small and the views aren't that great, tops of buildings, but overall a nice stay for...
