Reviewed 25 June 2014

Rates are extremely high for the location. Carpet in elevator was absolutely disgusting - I would have preferred to use the stairs.
Breakfast, although free, was awful with insufficient equipment for the people using the facility.
Service engineer confirmed that the air conditioning units in the rooms were not man enough for the job and were not able to keep rooms cool. Having moved rooms to try for a cooler option there was little improvement and I was given 3,000 points for the inconvenience. The cost of one night at this hotel is 30,000 points - the offer was an insult!

Room Tip: One where the air conditioning works.

Dear Michele S,

Thank you for providing essential feedback surrounding your stay. It is very important to us to hear from our guests how their experience was while staying with us.

I do regret to hear that your recent stay was unsatisfactory. You will find our rates extremely competitive to comparable hotels in our area, with unmatched amenities. A full hot breakfast buffet, WiFi, and self parking are all inclusive in our rates, which is virtually unheard of near the downtown area!

During the summertime, it can get quite hot and humid in the Charleston area, especially for our hotel being that we are situated right on a lovely saltwater marsh. It is true that sometimes our air conditioners can sometimes have trouble keeping up, and this is why we are constantly performing preventative maintenance on our units. I am sincerely sorry that you experienced an inconvenience when it came to this, and I would love to speak with you more about it if you would please contact me at erin.thomson@marriott.com.

We hope that you will give us another chance to show you our 100% commitment to guest service excellence. Thank you for choosing the SpringHill Suites by Marriott Charleston Downtown/Riverview.

Yours In Hospitality,
Erin Thomson
Sales Manager

I am a regular Marriott business traveler.. typically in Courtyards and Marriott Hotels. I have always found while traveling that most SpringHills are a cut below in comfort and quality of the other two.
I was pleasantly surprised to find this SpringHill with the same quality of mattress and bedding.
The breakfast was fresh, with plenty of choices above just the usual high-card cereals and bread. I used points for this trip since no other close by properties were not available.

This was a very comfortable stay. Its right on the water on off the Stono River - nice scenic views. Parking was a bottle of a hassle. We arrive back at the hotel a little late after a wedding and had to find spot on the side of the road in front of the hotel. The elevators were pretty slow - probably due to a high occupancy rate of tourists for the weekend.

I would stay there again, but not my first choice.

The stay was perfect for what we had- one of the best prices in the city and they were very accommodating with having our rooms next to each other! They have ice in the hotel so no need to buy it for the weekend and I love the shuttles they provide to downtown! The only thing that they could improve is to have more chairs at the pool. Looking forward to go back for another bachelorette in a couple weeks.

Unbeatable service, extremely lovely room with plenty of space. tasty breakfast with a southern hospitality!!! we actually had booked rooms across the street at another hotel but when we walked in the lobby it smelled like heavy deodorizers and a maintenance man walking around with BUG spray. we will always stay at spring hill suites!

We stayed Father's Day night after spending the day with family. Our room was very clean, lacked for nothing in way of linens, toiletries, etc.
Bed was one of the best I have slept in. Linens were great too.
We had breakfast which was satisfying. Again, all very clean. Great waterview from our balcony. Very pleasant stay. Will do so again.

We stayed here for 2 nights in a king suite, room 209.

The lobby/regisration area were quite clean and we appreciated the military discount (my husband is active duty). Our room appeared clean upon entering, however, the bathroom could have used some serious updating. There was hair on the walls, the exhaust fan did not work, and when pulling up on the faucet to turn on the shower, the whole faucet moved from the wall. There was a large stain on the mattress that appeared to be dried blood, which was pretty gross.

Breakfast was good in the morning and was plentiful. Towels were scarce in the pool area, but the area was clean and well maintained, the outdoor games were a fun extra outside. We never had an issue with parking. The evening shuttle into Charleston was nice as well and the driver was courteous.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and would probably stay here again.

Great hotel. Very clean rooms. Front desk was very helpful. Shuttle service to downtown area. Great location if you want to avoid the price of the downtown hotels. Would recommend and would stay here again.
