It's super clean! They went above and beyond for us! I'm currently here now and can't express how clean and beautiful it is! They asked why we were staying here and I told them it was for mg honeymoon, 10 minutes into our room we get a knock at our door with champagne and chocolates for us! It has been... More

LOCATION The view of rooftops and alleys from Room 416 was a little depressing, but the location of the hotel itself is excellent, between King and Meeting streets. Plenty of restaurants nearby and shops on King St (although they close very early in the evening). The area seemed safe, although the main streets can be dark as street lights are... More

I spent a week at the Renaissance in Charleston for business & was very pleased by the level of service & the comfort of the room. The location was great for walking around the historic part of town & accessing a wide range of very good restaurants. Each interaction with the hotel staff was extremely pleasant & they could not...

If you happen to be in Charleston you won't be disappointed if you stay at the Renaissance. Great pool, spacious guestrooms, good drinks, and they have Aveda in the rooms! It is also centrally located walking distance to almost everything there is to see and do downtown.

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend and had a great experience. They hotel is small but very well decorated and the service is exceptional. It is also ideally located to all things downtown Charleston. Highly recommend.

Hello, this is a beautiful property with an amazing location. However, management sorely lacks in its ability to address systemic issues. I have stayed there on three trips recently and on each trip the fitness center and the valet parking had issues. As example, if you pay $24 per day to valet park, you should expect "service" not delay and... More

This hotel is well situated and you can walk pretty much anywhere in the historic district. The rooms are lovely, but quite small and nothing special. I expected more since we paid quite a bit to stay here. However, the biggest downside is the noise. Evidently this hotel is party central for bachelor and bachelorette parties. I felt like I'd...

We have been coming to Charleston every year for our anniversary and were looking forward to our 16th year. We chose the Renaissance this year and opted for the "upgraded" terrace room. Unfortunately when we got to our room the "terrace" is a door that leads to a railing with no walkout area at all. I called the front desk... More
