Stayed 2 nights for a business trip. Checked in late at night and was taken care of quickly. Staff was extremely nice and helpful. Nice downtown location. Could walk to our meetings and eating out. Clean rooms and a good breakfast.

This hotel is perfectly acceptable for a business trip. Clean rooms, friendly staff, close to downtown.. Overall a pretty nice place. Seems to have been remodeled in the past few years. SLOW ELEVATORS.

I liked the rooms, especially the bedding. Wi-fi worked great. Breakfast was yummy, with plenty of options to choose from. Location in downtown was nice, one could walk down to the river where there is a good sidewalk for strolling.

Our first stop on a trip. Not sure about what others are reviewing but the place was clean, staff was friendly. Hotel was clean & updated. It must have been remodeled since last review because we had none of the problems listed. The only concern about the place was the entrance on one side is difficult get into coming off the interstate but luckily there is a second entrance around the building. Just a difficult entrance for travelers looking on how to get into the place. Good experience there, would return!

Old hotel, needs a lot of work, one of three elevators broken, terrible breakfast, needed to ask for staff to put out forks and spoons, they looked at me like I was crazy. Wall coverings coming off, furniture in bad condition-My wife and i are giving up on this part of the Marriott chain, actually if I was Marriott I would be embarassed.

Room Tip: I would think twice before stopping here.

Our room was Comfortable and clean enough, but there were other problems we found in our 1-night stay. First, only 2 our of 3 elevators were working (several stories) so we had to wait for 2nd elevator, second the breakfast room was entirely too small for this big of a hotel - many people were having to stand to eat and the line was too long for my husband to stand in (breakfast served til 10 but with so many people there was no way to close it down at that time.). I try to always find a Marriott when travelling but will not stay at this one again.

Room Tip: Choose room on 1st or 2nd floor in case of lines at elevators.

This is not your average Fairfield Inn by Marriott - lobby very simple, check-in staff nice but not very knowledgable about area happenings, evevators broke (2 out of 3) during our visit, carpet in halls worn, rooms were attempted a redo - the bedding looks new, everythng else not so much. Staff should be directed to smoke somewhere other than the side of the building - being a smoke free property, not so much when staff walks back in reeking of smoke. Walking distance to market and Sohos, best restaurant in Charleston!

Room Tip: Walking distance to Sohos! One of the best restaurants in Charleston!
