“History Abound”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

History abound in and around the hotel which was the original Citadel. The hotel is situated in the heart of Charleston. Charleston is the place if you love history.

The lobby and lounge area is tasteful and quite beautiful in the evening. Free drinks are served around five or six o'clock and that's nice, The free breakfast is so so. The rooms are a bit odd in that they were probably once dorm rooms; thus they are not your typical hotel suites. In most hotels there is a closet in the front foyer; our suite only had a wardrobe in the back bedroom. There needs to be a wardrobe in the living room or front room. Also the furniture is drab and could use some refurbishing.

It's worth about $150 a night because of the location. I must admit the staff there was warm,courteous and hospitable. However, I would not stay there again because it's just too pricy for the accomodations.

Our stay was wonderful. Room clean and comfortable (five of us in a double suite). Great view of the park with beautifullly decorated tree in the cente. Staff was attentive and ready to assist in every interaction.

Room Tip: Our fourth room overlooked the park across the street. A large window made for a great view.

Nice historic hotel, in a very good location for Charleston viewing. A bit pricy for the accommodations, but the history of the building, Citadel Military College makes it unique, and understandably different. Great brick feature wall in our room, great bed, wonderful pillows, and sheets. Hotel staff was wonderful, and very helpful.
We were disappointed by the quality of the cooked breakfast, tasteless omlete, cut fruit limited to melon, rather bland sausage. Room was very clean, but likely the cheapest toilet paper ever found in this price of hotel. Overall a nice stay, would be a value at around $150/night, but overpriced at $200 plus. Parking at $14 was steep for Charleston, at non-discounted rate in a city garage.

I am so pleased to hear you enjoyed our location which is very conducive to the historic sights. I'm sorry to hear about the quality of breakfast items served and your disappointment with some of the amenity charges. I'm reviewing this with our team and will make the necessary changes to our menu items. We will also re-examine our current offerings to ensure we're meeting guest needs and expectations. I hope you come back to see us and our lovely city again.

Kind regards,

Embassy Suites Downtown Charleston was a great hotel. My family really enjoyed the history present in and around the hotel. Wonderful location for the downtown experience. Would stay their again. Good location for an indoor event. You can park and enjoy without moving your car. Manager Reception was Awesome!!!!

Room Tip: Corner Suites are larger. Beds not so firm, but comfortable.

We arrived here yesterday. Very disappointing and expensive for an Embassy Suites.
1) Structurally - the room is old with only one window. There is massive banging (from a pipe) that shakes the entire room. My parents got a room in the mezzanine floor and it had NO windows.
2) The carpet is dirty and there is (black?) mold above the shower.
3) Double beds are small.
4) Very dark and dingy
5) Fitness center? How about Fitness box? One treadmill and one elliptical. Very disappointing.
I'm sure there is better places to stay for the money around here. Ugh! Get me out of here!

Right in heart of historic district. Right across from wonderful museum. You can walk to all the great restaurants. Good rooms with brick walls Great free breakfasts. Good value. Have stayed in Prather places like Hampton Inn nearby and that is not near as good

The property is historic, but this also means the rooms are small and narrow. The furnishings are pretty plain and not particularly charming. There is a complimentary cocktail hour and a complimentary breakfast. Expect long lines for both. The breakfast line was close to 20 minutes and we carried breakfast back to our room because there was nowhere to sit. I specifically stayed here because I knew there would be a fitness center and the other more charming inns nearby, didn't have one. However, the fitness center here is pretty miserable. It's in a detached building from the hotel and has limited equipment. Most Hampton Inns have better fitness centers. I didn’t find the location that great. It was about a half mile walk to most of the places we wanted to go. It was an easy, safe walk but it seemed as if there were better options closer to the sites.
