This is my third visit to Charleston and each time we have stayed at the Marriott with good reason. The service is impeccable, the rooms clean, the beds comfortable. They have a consierge lounge at the penthouse floor, and the views from there while sipping a drink and watching the sun set were spectacular. Also, just a short drive to the historic downtown area, where the shopping was fun, and the restaurants were amazingly good.

We were 1 1/2 hours driving distance from the hotel when I suddenly remembered that we had left money in the room safe. I called, and the manager, Ed, assured me that he would send me a money order for the cash ASAP. And YES, we will certainly continue to stay there.!!

If you want in the center of everything, this is not the hotel for you. You must drive or take the shuttle everywhere. Having said that, this older Marriott Hotel was beautifully renovated with more to come they say, and the service was superb.

I've stayed here a couple of times. The rooms are quite comfortable, the staff is very friendly and the location perfect if you have a car. If you want to be in heart of historic Charleston, this is not the place for you. It's a perfect place if you are visiting family, are in town for business or a return visitor looking for value. Parking is easy and the restaurant is good. Their breakfast is a great deal and delicious.

I had a nice room on the 9th floor overlooking the river.

I look forward to returning again. It's my home away from home when visiting my family in Charleston

Major renovation was done since last time I was here, granted location is not prime but there is a shuttle for going downtown, you are within 5-10 minutes of James Island and the hotel is right on the Ashley RIver, right by the Charleston Riverdogs stadium and you can walk to the Citadel and good for anybody who has a family member at MUSC. They are in the process of doing a major renovation to the swimming pool. I like what they have done to the bathrooms, taking out tubs and replacing with full showers and 2 showerheads. The conference rooms are in a different area, so you won't get noise from parties and to get free wi-fi go into the business center, where you can also print boarding passes.

Room Tip: corner room in the back where view of Ravenel bridge, river view and the Citadel.

The staff here is really great. The rooms not so much. Got this on a hotwire "deal" that wasn't that far off from the normal travel site price. If i'd paid anymore than $125/night I would have been upset. It appears to be an older hotel that was recently renovated. Their was MOLD in the bathroom in multiple spots and I had to be asked for my room to be revacuumed after arriving and finding what looked like saw dust basically everywhere. Rooms are a little smaller, bathrooms are TINY. You have to pay for wifi which I though was pretty tacky for "4 star" hotel. This place is more like a 4 star lobby with 3 star rooms. Lots of conferences and business travelers keep the parking lots full. Room was pretty quiet. No continental breakfast either. The location really isn't that bad. Quick access in and out of the city which is something the actual downtown hotels can't offer. But you it is about a 2.5 mile drive to get to the real downtown. I was their 6 days and saw the same front desk people every day! That's a little ridiculous to be working them that much. Hire some more people already and fire your housekeeping manager.

Room Tip: Higher floors facing west have the best views

Stayed here during my wides conference for a week. Not close to anything except a baseball park which we enjoyed. Had to take triply everywhere. Pool was not heated and rooms were ok. Nothing to write home about. I think its mostly used for conferences.

The hotel itself was so so, bed was comfy, shower was clean but.... Nothing 4here star about it. Wifi not free and no free breakfast either, Difficult location, nothing around, toofar outside of downtown, "the hood" is about a block away, hotwire says its within downtown but it is actually more than 2 andu 1/2 miles away and across a major highway. If you are going to the Cidadel its great becuase its right next door, oh and if you need a cop... thats next door too.

Hotwire refused to move us... wont be usimg them again for a while.
