Stayed at this property for two nights for the Charleston Marathon. The front desk allowed us to check in early, which was very convenient since we were traveling from Orlando, FL. The rooms were very large and loved the beautiful paintings of Charleston throughout the property. We used the heated pool and hot tub even though it was a bit chilly outside - pool was a great temperature for January! We had breakfast at the property both days and it was great. Overall, really enjoyed this property and would recommend it to anyone looking for a convenient location in Charleston.

We just got back from another lovely stay. The staff is so friendly, the rooms are sparkling and the two bedroom suite with kitchen is perfect for my family. We even get to bring our beloved dog (there is a $100 non refundable pet fee, I knew about it as it is listed on their website but other guests I spoke to were angry about it. I don't think it's unreasonable, it's worth it not to have to board him) It was quite chilly when we were there but their heated pool and hot tub are perfect after all the walking in the city. They also have tasty hot breakfast every morning with a good variety. The downtown shuttle is so convenient, not having to worry about parking is a blessing. I just wish it ran all day instead of just in the evenings. It's not the cheapest place in town to stay but it's a bargain compared to staying downtown and you get what you pay for here, a perfect place to stay.

Room Tip: The two bedroom suite is perfect for a family.

We stayed at this property 2 nights in January. The property is well maintained and is in a great location. We were less than 10 minutes from historic Charleston and used the shuttle one evening and found it to be very convenient. We did experience the breakfast on both mornings and was very good. Our room was a suite and had a connecting bedroom. The room was very clean and the front desk and many employees that we encountered were all very friendly and helpful.

We stayed at this hotel over Christmas, & we had a wonderful time. Our suite was very comfortable & had all the amenities of home so we had a very relaxing Christmas. The staff were welcoming & accommodating, & the evening shuttle service to the Historic District is very convenient. If you want to go into town during the day & don't want to drive, the hotel is just a short taxi drive away so it's a great location. Breakfast was superb. Lovely hotel.

We stayed at this Residence Inn for the first time from Dec. 28-Jan.3 and were warmly welcomed by Devon at the front desk. Initially booked for 5 nights but enjoyed it and Charleston so much we stayed an extra night! We love Residence Inns in the U.S. and this one did not disappoint us. We enjoyed the location near the marina...just a little bit of calmness away from the hustle bustle but only 5 min drive from the historic district.
We had a studio suite with a large covered balcony which was an unexpected treat. Could not use it as we would if warmer but we did have the doors open a couple of times. It still made the suite feel even more spacious. This hotel was very clean, exceptionally friendly staff and the breakfast room was really beautiful (more than most) and very welcoming!
We enjoyed the breakfast each morning and 2 managers specials nights. That is a really great deal with a decent enough meal and all the wine and beer you would like. One night we had the Farmers Plate which that night was mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, green beans and salad. The next night was hot dogs and hamburgers with salad.
We went to the nearby restaurant California Dreaming' for our New Years Eve dinner and it was a fun night. Glad not to go too far away. Then we were luckily on the right side of the hotel to enjoy fireworks in the distance later in the evening! Perfect!
We loved loved loved Charleston itself, walked parts of the historic district at some point every day, toured a couple of plantations, saw the Charleston Aquarium and then were treated to a pod of dolphins playing in the harbour as we exited from there! Also visited Patriots Point and toured both the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown and the WW2 submarine. Very interesting day!
We always travel with our golden retriever and love that dogs are welcome (really welcome) at all Residence Inns.
My only comment was that the dishes in the kitchen cupboard had not been checked and several were dirty. We just popped them into the dishwasher ourselves.
Would we return to this Residence Inn? A resounding YES!! I highly recommend it.
We will be back!

Room Tip: We enjoyed having a corner room on the second floor! If we come back in the warmer weather I would...

We reserved our room for $103 per night through Expedia. Wow - am I impressed at the value for the money! The studio suite we received is the size of many apartments - full kitchen, living area/ bed area, work station, alcove sitting room, and bath. The rooms re spacious, clean, and the kitchen is fully equipped including a dishwasher. A guest laundry is available on our floor. We are only staying for two nights, but I would definitely come back for a longer stay as it doesn't get better than this for the money!

This hotel is not in historic Charleston but provides shuttle service every 30 minutes which is wonderful because finding a parking place downtown is sometimes difficult. Warm breakfast is served along with a light fare dinner, hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza -- beer and wine each night. The staff is warm and friendly and the rooms were very clean.

Definitely a place to consider if you are traveling with children, pets or in-laws :)
