This hotel is beautiful! The staff, especially Mercedes and Eddie went above and beyond our expectations! Gorgeous view and clean well maintained property made this a place we will return to on a future visit. We loved Charleston and can't wait to come back.

Our go-to hotel in Charleston. Can't beat the sunset views, the friendly, welcoming and helpful staff and the comfortable well-appointed rooms. This was our 5th stay. I had phoned ahead to request a specific room and was delighted they were able to honor my request. Convenient parking as well. Looking forward to next time!

I agree with other reviews that highlight the spacious, enjoyable terrace overlooking the Ashley River. Very appealing! Room was comfortable, quiet, clean, just as you'd expect at a Marriott. Surprisingly they charge for breakfast and for the shuttle to the historic downtown, though in both cases the charges were trivial; perhaps that helps to keep the room rate reasonable. Perfect...

Exceptionally nice hotel on the Ashley River. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Hotel is very nice and well cared for. Hotel also has its own small pier and boat dock. Beautiful location for a sunset over the adjacent marina.

The outside terrace is a highlight of this hotel. On a cool evening, it is enjoyable to sit outside overlooking the marina with live easy listening music. It does not get better, though. The hotel is not bad...but it's average quality is inconsistent with its price. The hotel needs a makeover.....the style feels old and the furnishing and appointments are...

Clean and friendly. Breakfast NOT included the way it usually is at a Courtyard. Location is convenient to James Island but other venues are better for access to downtown including other Marriott properties.

This hotel sits right on the river and has an enormous courtyard that allows you to look across the river and at the boats of the local marinas.
