“Great Stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

My family (with 2 and 4 yr old) just had a great 3 night stay at this hotel. Since we really need a suite hotel there were not many options but this met all of our needs. The room was spacious and clean- a little old, but that was OK. The building itself is really neat looking since it looks like a castle. The cooked to order breakfast was a big hit and eating in the courtyard was perfect and relaxing. The evening manager's reception was something we looked forward to each night and was the perfect touch to our vacation. Outdoor pool was well maintained and staff was extremely nice. Anything we requested (i.e. extra towels, plug for bathtub) was delivered within minutes. We found some good restaurants a couple blocks away so dinner each night was a breeze.

Room Tip: Corner suites are larger and brighter

We stayed here the weekend of the College's open house and picked this hotel because of its location and history. The open areas on the main floor have a lot of charm, but the rooms are in serious need of updating. The furniture is dated and in some cases you can find stains on the upholstery. I even founds stains on the upholstered chairs in the lobby sitting area. Also, the towel rack in our bathroom was beginning to pull away from the wall. The staff were friendly, and the lunch and breakfast from the in-house restaurant were good.

Embassy Suites Historic Charleston was a great choice. This hotel was very comfortable. It's in a good location right on the free city trolly route. It's next to the city park where the farmer's market is held and is within walking distance of some very good restaurants. The included bountiful breakfast and the manager's reception make this hotel a value for downtown Charleston.

Stayed here in the last days of March of this year, a family of 4 with 2 adults and 2 children under 6. We wanted to be close to or in the historic center of Charleston, but also need our space when rooming with our kids on the road. The 1 bedroom suite, where we could close a door between us and our infant son while rooming with our 5-year-old in the other bed, worked well for us.

We found the hotel in general to be clean, and it had good and friendly service. The included breakfast was good and the drinks in the evening were a nice treat. Basically it was a step above a regular hotel chain, not a really luxurious 4 star hotel, but very good.

Couple of points: the breakfast got SUPER crowded, especially if you wanted the cooked option, so I went for plain cereal just to get finished and go. The pool area was nice, but we did see some kind of small rodent (rat from the neighboring park?) clamber over the wall and scoot across the patio area near the pool. A little disconcerting, but what can you do? People complained in other reviews about the dreariness or darkness of the interior, but I didn't feel this was a problem. I guess if you spend all your time in the hotel room it might be -- it is true that the interior rooms have no window, because they are all units ringing a central atrium. Anyway, this was one aspect we wondered about before our stay, but it was just fine. Location was great, walked or rode the tourist bus further into the heart of downtown the 2 days we were there.

We stayed here April 8-11. Everyone was very nice the hotel was just as decribed. I did not see any issues with the rooms as other have stated. Our room was very clean. Breakfast was the usual Embassey Suites breakfast, very good lots of choices. We really enjoyed the location it's so close to lots of great places to eat and shop. Pool area is nice but I can only imagine it is crowded (chairs) during the summer since it was fairly full in April. I did not like paying extra for parking but I guess thats a given by staying in downtown.We would stay here again if going for the downtown area.

The location is ideal in downtown Charleston. All the employees are gracious. The Complimentary breakfast, internet and managers cocktail hour are all nice touches. There is even a lady selling sweetgrass baskets in the lobby. The location is perfect if you plan on touring downtown Charleston. The rooms and the public spaces are all lovely.
