“Beautiful Rooms at a Reasonable Price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2009

My wife & I visited the Charleston Marriott for a conference as well as for some sightseeing and a little weekend getaway. The conference room was adequate and the price was great with the conference discount. We found our room to be lavishly decorated with beautiful decor and a very elegant bathroom. The bed was comfortable and luxurious. The view was fair, as there was a lot of condensantion on the window and you couldn't get a good view. The in- hotel restaurant looked very nice, but I can't say that we tried it. There wasn't a lot of privacy at the tables as they were open to the hotel lobby. The location was very convenient to downtown Charleston.
Our only complaint is that we reserved a King bed room and we ended up with two double beds. When we complained, they told us that the reservation we made was simply a "request" for a king bed, and that the reservation does not actually hold a king bed for you. After complaining, they did offer us a king room- over the bar. They told us that they usually try not to use the room b/c of a lot of complaints about noise. So, we kept the double beds and still found them to be very nice.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at the Marriott Charleston.

This hotel had the best fitness center I have seen in a hotel. Three elipticals, I think three treadmills, new weight equipment and free weights. The treadmills and elipticals had tv screens on them. I had forgotten my earbuds but luckily there was a big container full of individually wrapped earbuds to use to plug into the tvs.

For some reason when I tried to turn on the TV it wouldn't, I told the front desk staff about it and they had it fixed while I was out exploring all the things Charleston and the surrounding areas had to offer.

I was placed in a room on the third floor near the aqua lounge, which is basically a bar located on a balcony. So, when the door was opened you could hear the music and occasionally the people walking in and out of the bar. It wasn't a big deal because they close at 10pm but you should keep this in mind if you want to get to bed early.

Oh, I almost forgot. The wireless internet is not free in your room. You have to pay 10 dollars a day for it.

Overall, it was a great place to stay.

This Hotel was wonderful and exceeded our expectations for the price we paid. The rooms were clean, bright and very comfortable. The soaps etc., were very nice from Bed and Body Works and smelled yummy. The bathroom had a marble top vanity and big fluffy white towels. We did not eat at the Hotel so I can't commet on the food. The lobby and lounge areas and pool were great. An added bonus was a shuttle downtown to the historic area from 8:30 am to 10:30pm for a small charge. I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again we liked it so much.

We decided to take a trip to Charleston while visiting Hilton Head. It was worth the trip. The hotel had a great special price and the people couldn't have been nicer. While it is not in the center of the town the shuttle makes it very easy to get back and forth.
We had a 7th floor room with a balcony and we loved it. The view was great.

My friend and I just spent a couple of days at Marriott Charleston. We had not stayed there before and did not have reservations. Upon our arrival, a bellman greeted me immediately and was very helpful. The man working the front desk was warm, friendly, and helpful, as was the concierge in the guest lounge at the penthouse level. Our penthouse-level suite was beautiful and exceeded our expectations. (The price was excellent and affordable due to the time of year and that we checked in on a Sunday evening. I don't go to Charleston in the expensive summer season, anyway, due to the heat and humidity, so it happens that my favorite time of year to visit coincides with the best time to get a fabulous hotel at great value.) Our suite had two spacious, high-ceilinged rooms, one with two queen beds/luxury linens and decor, large armoire w/flat panel tv, refrigerator/mw/room safe, large balcony and a bath with walk-in porcelain tiled shower. The adjoining living space was beautifully decorated, with a lovely sofa, two arm chairs, a huge flat panel tv, wet bar, dining table/chairs for 8, nice art, a second bath with tub/shower combo and a second large balcony. The evening view of the hotel property, Charleston's city lights, the harbor and James Island bridge was amazing. Our stay included access to the private lounge on the penthouse level, where we had free soft drinks and bottled water, an honor bar with a good selection of wines and beers, free desserts and hot hors de oeuvres, as well as a very nice complementary continental breakfast, with a choice of cereals, pastries, fresh fruit, muffins, juices and coffee. Even though I had always before stayed in town in order to be within walking distance of shops and dining, my experience at this hotel was so wonderful that I will choose to stay here on every future trip to Charleston.

We stayed at the Marriott on our first trip to Charleston. The hotel was beautiful, clean and very comfortable. The front desk staff was great. They gave us good suggestions for dinner and even made reservations for us. Would not hesitate to stay here again. It is a bit out of the "downtown historic distric" but easy to come and go and Charleston is easy to get around. GREAT PLACE!!
