Had to go to Charleston for business and choose the Embassy suites in Charleston . No regrets . It's a quaint visual with brick everywhere giving it old world charm. Rooms are nice but need upgrading as bath was chipped with big rust marks not up to normal Hilton standards. Being a Marriott Platinum for life and a Hilton diamond... More

The hotel and staff were extremely helpful, caring and very nice. The cleaning staff was absolutely terrible. Our room was not cleaned 3 out of the 5 days we were there. We did not have the do not disturb sign on the door either. I discusses this with the manager on duty and she was very helpful but she did... More

Loved the location--you can walk everywhere which is good because it is hard to get in/out of the Peking garage because the spots are tiny! Also, it is scary walking to the garage early morning by oneself. I was assured by the front desk it was safe (for what that is worth). Rooms are just ok, but spacious. Staff is... More

We have stayed here several times as it is very close to the College of Charleston where my daughter attends. We like the suite setup, the breakfast is very good, and the hotel is right next to a park. We also find the evening reception to be an added bonus.

The Embassy Suites is ideally located if you have a student at the College of Charleston like we do. It is two blocks away. The suites give you more room than a typical guest room but the windows, although big, are raised beyond where you can see out. They do give enough light to the bedroom but non to the... More

Customer service goes above and beyond to take care of you. The hotel was interesting for its look in reference to history. You couldn't have asked for more of a variety for a free breakfast. included was a free reception that was great for having a drink or snack. Great location, easy access to visitors center and free trolley. Definitely... More

We stayed here for a family reunion! We loved the fact that we were within walking distance from a few stores. The shuttle service was a plus!! Takes you to/from to Tanger Outlets. The only suggestion is to have more staff on site with busy weekends, there were several family reunions going on the same weekend and it looks as... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at this hotel while visiting Old Town Charleston, SC. The hotel was originally the Citadel of South Carolina until the Citadel constructed a new facility. Hilton purchased the property with the understanding that most of the original structure would remain as originally designed. It is a very beautiful hotel to visit and spend... More

I am forced to stay at Hilton properties for work. I would rather be at Marriott. However, I have grown to like the Embassy Suites. The two room suite is always nice so I don't have to work on the bed. However this hotel really needs some updating. The carpet is stained in the guest room and the couch and... More

We loved the historic charm, ambiance, and the help from all the staff. I didn't drop something for one second before someone picked it up, smiled and thanked me for staying at their hotel. The food was great. Made to order breakfast, reception from 5:30 to 7:30 - both awesome. My valet service was quick and courteous
