“Good hotel, GREAT location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

The location is absolutely perfect - walking distance from everything. Every single staff member was outstanding. SO friendly and accommodating. The lobby is beautiful, full of historic charm. The rooms themselves were average, nothing really special, but more than adequate and clean, and we had a great view of the park and the John C. Calhoun statue. We were also able to have adjoining rooms, which was great. The breakfast was convenient, with lots of options. Not the best food I've ever eaten, but for the price (free!), it was great! The evening cocktail reception was nice as well.

Love the location of the hotel. Makes it easy to get around to all the historical spots in Charleston either by walking or taking the free Trolly transportation. The Embassy Suites rooms are great! With this building being an historical site (the first/original Citadel) its cool to have the brick walls with the gun ports still intact. The service was excellent. Everyone was very helpful.

The staff at this hotel is excellent. Impeccable service! The complimentary breakfast was amazing- something for everyone! And we loved the evening reception with complimentary beverages. The hotel is rich is history and hospitality! It's conveniently located to all the great things to see and do in the Holy City.

I am just leaving after 2 nights here and couldn't be happier. Our room was on the first floor and had an old Brick wall left over from when it was the Citadel many years ago. I went with the Valet which is the best choice for parking and the guys are great. The breakfast is different from other Embassy Suties because of room and the building, since they didn't build it from the ground up. It is still much better than the other express or inn hotels. Great location its about 7 blocks to the market and just behind the hotel is King Street were all the restaurants are at. Would stay here again also the free shuttle comes in front of the hotel.

Beautiful hotel. Friendly and helpful staff and a delicious breakfast. Very clean!! It was a little more of a walk (5 or 10 minutes) to some of the sights than from other hotels, but very doable. There is no on sight parking but there is a parking ramp across the street as well valet parking.
