First off, the reason why I picked this hotel was because of all the rave reviews regarding the concierge, Kevin. He did not disappoint! I called him a few weeks before our arrival to get his opinion on things my husband and I should do while in Charleston. He actually set up a conference call with both my husband and I, so he could get both of our likes/dislikes on tours, restaurants etc. Kevin did NOT disappoint!!! Every single restaurant he made us reservations for were absolutely delicious. If I had to pick my favorite 2 out of all the ones we visited it would be Macintosh and Cru Cafe. As far as activities, Kevin set us up with a fabulous walking tour of Charleston and an out of this world private boat ride to Morris Island where we got to see dolphins up close and personal, along with catching a glimpse of a huge sea turtle! Along with that, the operator of the boat was extremely knowledgeable with the ecosystems there and gave us fantastic information. But the cherry on top of our entire trip was our private walking tour with Kevin. On his own personal time he took my husband and I on a night tour off all the mansions and neighborhoods in Charleston, it was an extremely memorable and magical experience. It was one of my favorite things I have EVER EVER EVER done. My husband and I have traveled quite a bit and have NEVER gotten that kind of top notch service from a concierge like Kevin provided. He is single-handedly the most important asset to this Marriott. If you are going to Charleston you MUST stay here and you MUST meet Kevin! I could go on and on about his personalized maps of running trails, bathrooms in the city, best places to take pictures, etc. He is truly dedicated. You may have to wait and minute or 2 to speak with him but that's only because he is providing someone with the best customer service and you can be sure he will give you that same courtesy.
As far as the hotel itself -it was your standard Courtyard - very clean and rooms on a little bit of the smaller side. The location is A+ -You can literally wall to anywhere in town!
But don't forget, before you walk anywhere, get the key to the city from Kevin :)
