Let me preface this review by saying the Grand Bohemian‘s art deco style is NOT our style at all! I knew this going in but we chose the hotel for location and on-site bar/restaurant. The location is perfect! Wedged between all the shops on King street and the great restaurants around Meeting street. Just a few blocks from the historic Charleston city market. Rooftop bar and restaurant served up good drinks and the breakfast we had there was very good. There was a little outdoor courtyard which had live music and a cigar bus one night which was a cute touch. So in these ways the hotel delivered. Also, all the staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful with the exception of valet. There were a few negatives. There is absolutely no mention or upgrades for your Marriott status. Rooms are small and our particular room not only had no view but had the tiniest window! There was this huge long wall and the window was tucked into one side( picture below). It gave the room a claustrophobic feel with not enough natural light. Also- we found the pictures in the room kind of disturbing and not soothing (see below). Shower was nice and large but had a very funky smell which my husband said was mold. Lights for entire bathroom are outside the bathroom and there are no fans. So The rooms were definitely a fail for us. Lastly when we arrived there was no where to pull up and there was no valet in sight. By the time we went in to try to find somebody there were five cars blocking the street lined up waiting for the valet behind us. So we just grabbed a cart and took our own bags. When leaving it was the same situation. One valet- several waiting. So again we grabbed a cart, and took our things down to the car. The valet came over and my husband gave him a nice tip. You would think he would at least help unload our bags into the car but he just took the tip and walked away. Given the tiny valet area to pull into, and the fact that you pretty much have to valet your car, There really needs to be several valet’s on site all the time in my opinion. If you like art deco, a rooftop bar, a central location, and don’t mind the quirks, this hotel would work for you. For us, there is another Marriott property very close by that is more our style that we will choose for our next visit.

This hotel is centrally located in the Charleston Historic District, meaning you can walk to pretty much everything from here. That is the best part about this hotel. But most of the rooms have no view whatsoever; housekeeping service is spotty; the restaurant's breakfast offerings are slim and overpriced; the fitness center is tiny and not well kept (towels were not replaced and video monitors had no video--audio only). The only parking option is valet for $39/night. The front desk staff, on the other hand, is extremely accommodating. David Knaupff was great, helpful, caring and generous. He got us into a better room after we complained about the higher priced "larger room" that looked into the hotel's art gallery on one side (where anyone could see in) and a construction site/wall on the other side. Despite his kindness, we would not stay here again.

We arrived at this hotel on a Monday night. We missed our connection at the airport and called in advance to confirm food would be available. We were told the bar would be open , so we booked the room. Upon arrival, we discovered that the bar was closed. Fortunately the manager was available and he was very helpful. He. brought us a cheese plate, allowed us to order a bottle of wine and even went out to bring us dinner! I wish I could say the rest of the staff was as helpful. The following morning the person at the front desk seemed to have an attitude. When I inadvertently checked out via the app, I was treated very skeptically as if I were lying. Then when I saw we were charged for parking and I said we arrived via uber, she questioned me about that. My last comment is this is a nice hotel but be prepared for certain room amenities lacking. It is frustrating to get charged the full rate while not receiving the full service.

Rest assured that your concerns will be addressed immediately so that we can prevent them from occurring in the future.

We stayed the hotel overnight in December. It was impressing for the hotel room cleanness and neat. Especially during the Covid 19 pandemic. Also the reception staff-Trey is so nice and friendly, which made our trip so comfortable. He even helped us to book the private carriage tour. We really enjoyed the stay in the hotel. Thank you Trey!

We stayed here over Thanksgiving weekend. The hotel is in a wonderful location. Last year we stayed at the Courtyard a few more blocks out of downtown. Those few blocks make a difference when doing a lot of walking. They have valet parking but the parking lot is also literally next door to the hotel, so we just parked ourselves. We received an upgrade the a corner room. Room 222. There were 2 windows, king bed, desk, 2 chairs and of course bathroom. There is a fridge in the room, not very cold. Our view was of the fire station. It was entertaining to watch them back in after being out. I was worried they might wake us up at night, but I guess if they went out on a call, they didn't turn sirens on. The rooftop bar is very nice. Has our favorite beer ever, Kentucky Bourbon Barrell Ale. The cushions on the couches and chairs did look quite worn. The service was good. We didn't eat up on the roof at all. We were travelling with 2 other couples. We all did the wine blending class on evening. This was so fun!!!! Peter, the sommelier, was very informative and fun. Lots and lots of laughs were had. At the end, you have a bottle of wine with your own label and name to take home. The hotel is very dog friendly. We didn't bring our 130 lb dog, but our friends each brought their 80ish lbs dogs. It's so great to see all the dogs in the hotel. Masks were worn every where in the hotel and hand sanitizer stations were every where, including the elevator.
