We booked a king room for 1 night's stay on January 11th. First time at this hotel just in to Charleston for a Birthday dinner. The Lobby is lovely, spacious, and impressive. Front desk personnel were eager to please and informed us of covered parking in the back which came in handy as the rain was coming.
Our room was clean, up-to-date and quiet. There was a small bit of mildew in the grout near the floor of the shower but, seriously not enough to be an issue. Many hotels are now putting a comforter on the bed and for us, that is just too much. That was the case here so we upped the temp on the heater and slept with only the sheet. The heater turned off with a fairly loud bang each time the temp was reached which disturbed hubster. Not a problem for just one night, but I could see that it would be a big problem if you were staying longer. Bring earplugs just in case.
Really surprised that upscale Marriott would require you to pay $3 for the bottle of water in the bathroom and that wifi was only available for an additional fee. The wifi fee was noted when we booked though, and the water had an easy-to-see tag so no one should claim ignorance.
Did not feel this location was convenient to the historical district. You will need to drive, and then find and pay for additional parking, if you want to get to the market area which we did for dinner. There is a nice restaurant on the premises, Saphire, which also serves a good, though somewhat overpriced breakfast.
Really pleased with Marriott's "LOOK NO FURTHER" program. I booked directly with Marriott asking for the best rate and when I mentioned that I could get a better rate on the same room thru Orbitz, Kenneth in reservations was very helpful with instructions on how to file a claim with the look no further program which gives you the other website's rate plus and additional $25 off. This made The Marriott the best value for an upscale room we've ever encountered in Charleston. And we visit at least twice a year. Will definitely stay here again.
