We had a wonderful experience at this hotel and highly recommend! The staff was beyond friendly and helpful. The room was clean, the hotel was well kept and the location is perfect for downtown Charleston. They had cold water and tea out by the front desk, and in the mornings, pastries or fruit. The hotel is a little older and... More

I could lambaste this hotel with a bullet-point list, but I won't. I'm not staying there again, either. It was REALLY expensive for what it is, and it really needs some serious updating of bathroom fixtures, air conditioners (how about clean filters at least?), elevators (4 floors of stairs was FASTER!), and breakfast should have been free for what our...

We spent 2 nights here in June to celebrate our anniversary. First booked on Marriott.com as members requesting 2 queens waterfront room. As our girls could not accompany us we switched to a King waterfront. Once we checked in we were assigned a king street view. Not happy. All was made well however by the manager, David Sullivan. He got... More

View was nice and the staff was friendly. They do not have a free breakfast-which was disappointing with as much as you pay to stay there. We did not get a chance to visit the pool/hot tub but looked nice. Fresh water available but many other cheaper hotels do too. Save the money and go somewhere else.

Stayed 2 nights. Bed was comfortable. Room adequate and clean. Smokey smell of room was removed after a day of running the air conditioning. Location was great. Only two elevators for the entire hotel which meant service was slow. Not enough carts to carry baggage to room; had to hunt to find one. Good 24-hour free coffee bar.

This place was a great stay, for the most part. The location was good and the price was great considering it was 4th of July weekend. However, the check-in was one of the most frustrating experiences I have ever had. I will revert back to 4th of July weekend and the fact that I came from Denver to Charleston, which... More

We have found our hotel of choice in Charleston, the views are great. The overall hotel was very good. The breakfast did not look good and they charged for microwaveable breakfast, that was my only feedback of this hotel. The hotel is great for families.

Stayed one night heading North from home on Hilton Head Island. Terrific location and paid for a "corner King" overlooking the harbor... The view was worth it sitting on the balcony watching night fall... The property is a solid Marriott, clean, quiet and super comfortable bed... Parking is "included" which for their other Charleston properties ranges from $12 - $30...... More
