I work as a travel agent, and I recently had a group of about fifty 9th grade students who traveled to Charleston, SC for a three-day weekend. We stayed at the Comfort Suites in N. Charleston. The manager of the property, Darrin, was very easy to work with...very accommodating for the group's needs and was very prompt in responding to questions/emails which made the planning much easier and less stressful. The staff who worked the desk...morning, day and evening...were all very helpful, pleasant and interested in making sure the group's needs were met.
The property has an outdoor pool. B'fast is pretty much the standard continental fare-- hot waffles (although I wish there had been 2 machines instead of one to help move the group along), biscuits, eggs, sausage/bacon, cereal, danish/muffins, juice, milk and coffee. The staff who worked in the b'fast area worked very hard to keep things restocked and were very pleasant. The juice machine had issues to start out both mornings, but they worked fast to fix it. There is a manager's reception during the weeknights, but we did not partake with the school group being present of course.
The property is located just off the main drag and has a side street with a turn around area which makes it easier for charter buses and 18-wheelers to turn around then have a place on the street to park without obstructing traffic.
I highly recommend getting one of the king suites with the jacuzzi (2-person) in the room. Very nice and very enjoyable!
Only negatives-- the juice machine issue (although it was more of a brief inconvenience than anything) and the ice machine on floor 3 was down for the count. Otherwise, the stay was a good one and I will bring a group here again in the future.
