SpringHill Suites Charleston Downtown/Riverview

Reviewed March 7, 2011

I recently stayed here for 2 nights using bonus points thru my Marriott credit card.

The hotel is very clean and everyone at the front desk was very nice and helpful. We had a room on the 4th floor with a small balcony looking east. The room had a king bed, couch, mini-fridge and desk. Free internet and free breakfast were included.
The hot tub was not hot so we walked over to the Residence Inn next door and used their hot tub.
The location is slightly outside of the downtown area of Charleston. I have stayed in Charleston several times and much prefer being in the Historic District so I can walk around and immerse myself in the city. This location is off of the highway and you really can't walk to the city safely even though it is close by. The hotel does offer a shuttle at night.
There was nothing wrong with this hotel it just would not be my first choice because of the location.

The hotel was very comfortable. The rooms were large, clean and the service was great. The breakfast was very good with an excellent presentation and many choices. The fitness center was adequate. The high speed internet worked great and was very fast. The location was good, only 8 minutes to downtown.

We loved staying at this family friendly and very reasonable hotel right on the waterway. The view (we had the side facing the marsh) was priceless and the heated pool and jacuzzi made the kids very happy. The complimentary breakfast was sumptuous...everything from scrambled eggs to crunchy granola and assorted teas and coffees. We will always stay her in future when in Charleston!

After visiting Charleston many times, this is the first time I've stayed outside the Historic District. Was visiting family and didn't think we'd have time to sightsee. However, we did have time and found that this hotel was just a 10 min. drive into town. We were glad we located the hotel in the daylight because finding it at night would be somewhat difficult. It's located very close to a busy interchange and we still ended up taking the wrong street--not the Fairfield's fault. Parking was secure. The Hotel lobby is located on the 1st floor--not the ground floor--somewhat unusual. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, however no one told us about the shuttle downtown as mentioned in other reviews. Very clean and extremely comfortable bed. The only real negative was that it was 75 degrees the day we were here and the air conditioning had not been turned on. Thankfully, we opened the window and turned on the ceiling fan. Not comfortable but we were able to sleep. We would probably not stay here again, because we prefer to be within walking distance of the historic sights, but that's not the fault of the hotel. We had a nice large room and breakfast was good.

I made a mistake when I booked this hotel and thought it was in another area. I drove to the area where I thought the hotel was located and ended up using Garmin to locate this hotel. It is on water adjacent to a marina, but it is not within walking distance of downtown as I thought. The staff here was very friendly. They had welcoming cookies and gave me a small package of a local snack. The room was clean and the view of the water was nice. The rate for the room was $81 with tax so it was a good value, but I doubt I will choose this location again. I travel to Charleston often and will liekly choose another property on future trips. I would recommend the hotel as I had absolutely no problems and the price is good for the quality of the hotel

Good location near water. Free parking. Friendly staff. Prompt free shuttle to downtown. Paint could be refreshed and grout could use some cleaning. Bedding was fresh and no funny odors in the hall or room. Breakfast was consistent with other Spring Hill properties. Clean dining area.
