“Good for Business Travel, Too”
Reviewed 11 October 2010

I have seen a number of favorable reviews for this hotel, but not much on it's meeting facilities. I was here for a health coalition meeting attended by about 120 others. The meeting facilities were very spacious and well laid out. The continental breakfast and sit-down luncheon were both well prepared and presented well. Convention staff were professional and competent and front desk staff were friendly and helpful with advice. I stayed one night and was given a very comfortable, if a bit small, corner room overlooking the Ashley River. The room was very clean and quiet. Pretty old TV though - no flat screen. The Wifi in the room worked well and, although a card said there was a daily charge, none appeared on my bill. Another plus was free parking. Great stay!

Desk staff made staying there a pleasure. They went out of their way to provide me with things to see and do. TTook care of travel arrangements the entire time I was in Charleston. Although the hotel is not right in the Historic District it is definitely worth staying there!

From the minute we walked in until we saw the hotel shrink in our rear view mirror, the folks at the Charleston Marriott did all they could do to give us a wonderful get-away weekend. The Aqua Terrace was the relaxing spot to let the week be carried off by a glowing sunset only to be eclipsed by the twinkling sky. The Southern Burger topped with Pimento Cheese and Fried Green Tomatoes and the grilled chicken Caesar salad were both on target. Nothing fancy here, but enough to quell the hungeries. We got lost in the plushness of the bedding and pillows. We thought the breakfast buffet was pricey at $13, but got plenty to eat by splitting the two eggs, sausage, grits, toast, juice, and coffee for $10. The courtyard was an ideal place to let our minds wander off under the Palmetto trees. These folks are on to something and it's making people want to return. We will and soon!

My boyfriend and I booked this hotel for a weekend get-away. I thought about staying downtown Charleston, but for the price difference, I couldn't justify it. I am so glad I took a chance on this hotel. It was like being at a resort...everyone was very nice and accommodating. The room was perfect and the view from our balcony was spectacular! We were close enough to downtown to drive there in less than 10 minutes and the hotel offered a very reasonable shuttle as well. Sherrie (the concierge) was TOPNOTCH! She really helped us figure out what we wanted to do and how to get there and even made dinner reservations for us. Just a really really helpful lady....can't say enough about her service! I would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful hotel, but one morning at 4:27, the fire alarms went off, and everyone had to be evacuated. The reason? Hotels said the steam cleaning crew was cleaning under a smoke detector, and the steam set all the detectors off. Why doesn't a cleaning crew already know this? Or for that matter, why doesn't a hotel like Marriott have an updated fire system in place, so that ALL the detectors don't have to go off? I'll be more than happy to stay again, if they don't mind the fact that I might actually want to sleep the night next time???

We stay at the Marriott from 8/2/10 - 8/6/10 while celebrating our 10 year Anniversary. It is a really nice hotel. The room decor had a pineapple theme, the bed and pillows were very comfortable. The bathroom was a bit small but we didn't mind. The gym was nice and although we did not get a chance to go swimming the pool was nice too. One of my favorite parts of this hotel was the terrace lounge with live music and happy hour. Parking is free. Downtown Charleston is only about 2 miles away and you do not have to feed the meters after 6 pm. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again.

Very clean hotel. Staff is a five star, they go out of their way to help. We return from downtown by way of trolly one day that it was raining and the staff came directly to us with towel to dry off before even going to our room. would stay again. Only down fall is the it is not within walking distance to downtown area. Very quiet hotel.
