An excellent place to stay in Charleston if you want a full service hotel. All staff are friendly and attentive; rooms are a good size, restaurant & bar in the hotel, large lobby area and outdoor patio where you can gather with friends, and a hotel shuttle bus to historic area of Charleston. Most parking is in an outdoor lot, but there is a small covered garage.

Room Tip: Best views are from room on the South side (overlooks historic Charleston) or West side (overlooks a...

We arrived after being in a plane for 24 hours We were escorted to the room It was not ready. We went down and fortunately they made a nice save when the bell man Nick got us upgraded and back in the room. Room was fabulous
The problem with the hotel is it is not downtownl. You need to get a ride that will cost you ten dollars to get to the historic district. They hire services and we found that on our last day the person who was to drive us to the airport did not show up!
So keep in mind you will pay extra for getting down town and Wi Fi

Room Tip: Room with views of water

Stayed here for a night during a recent roadtrip across the south. Excellent hotel. It is huge which is jsut as well as there was a conference going on at the time, but we were able to avoid the conference goers. Our room was very comfortable with a superb kings size bed. The rooftop bar (on the 4 floor) is great and have a number of fireplaces to keep you warm at night. Facilities are good, including a lovely pool and hottub. Only drawback with the location as it's not within walking distance of Charleston downtown. The hotel does run a shuttle bus every half hour which only take 10 minutes and is arund $12 per person. Ample parking which was free. Wifi not included and expensive.

Room Tip: Higher floor facing towards the marina otherwise you just get a view of the car parks.

Stayed here for one night on 10/11/12. Room was spacious, quiet and clean. What you expect from Marriott. The only issue I had was that they wanted to charge for WI-FI in the room. I have stayed in many less expensive hotels and never had to pay for the internet. The business center(wi-fi was supposed to be free here but wasn't) is badly in need of an upgrade. Computers are out of date and difficult to manage. Location is convenient to downtown, a ten minute drive.

I spent a recent weekend (Saturday and Sunday of Oct. 6th and 7th) at the Charleston, SC Marriott. The facilities were very pretty and the room was clean and elegant. The only problem: While you pay a high price for staying at a Marriott, you are treated like you are the "poor cousins" that they allowed to come and grace their facilities. While regarding itself as a full-service hotel, they expect you to pay for a bottle of water placed in the restroom and the internet, which is free at lower priced hotels. ( This after paying almost $400 for two nights in October) The eclectic restaurant on the facility was just pretending to be fancy - the food was average at best. I ordered a crabcake with guacamole and black bean corn salsa. I counted the black beans in the salsa- there were 13! and less corn. The crab cake was the size of a silver dollar. hysterical.....and we weren't asked for drink orders....just had water. We also were awakened by the maid at 9:00 a.m. expecting that we were gone. If you want to pay to be snobbed- then this is the place. By the way, everywhere else we were in Charleston we were treated very well. The prices are high there but at least at everywhere but the Marriott, you got what you paid for.

I stayed at this hotel 9/06-9/08 2012. It was not as close to historical area as i thought. It is not within walking distance to anything, but price is about $100 cheaper each nite than all those historical area hotels, and just as nice. It is very nice, all main areas lobby, restaurant, hallways, etc, look new, grand looking. The rooms are good, (but i have stayed in Marriott rooms that were nicer), they kinda looked a little old for a Marriott. Although, I have no complaints about the rooms. All service was great. Restaurant food good, and prices weren't high, were reasonable. They have free parking which is hard to find in that area. The best thing is that they have a shuttle service for $6 per day unlimited trips to/from historical district all day long 8a-10:45p unlimited trips. Nice pool. Great outside area for sitting around relaxing, having drinks, etc. No complaints. Would stay there again. One negative is they have a computer to look up tourist info, tours, restaurants etc. no paper brochures you can just pick up and take to room with you to look over and make decisions. No Complaints.

Room Tip: Higher floors offer best views.

We stayed here for a night on a recent visit to Charleston. The hotel is beautiful and has free parking. The room was clean and comfortable and had a nice view of The Ashley River.
There is a restaurant/ bar with outdoor seating on the third floor. food was so so, nothing to write home about.
It's is about a mile from downtown but although Charleston is a walking city, this is not a great place to walk from. I think they have a shuttle to get downtown. This is a really nice hotel and the staff were friendly and helpful.
I prefer to stay right downtown but would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the river on a high floor
