The web site said they had some remodeling being done. What they did not tell you is that it was constant machines tearing up the concrete and being hauled away to containers. It was 8-5 every day. The pounding of the machines was loud. They even worked on Sunday. Once they finish the remodeling you will find the location very...

We stayed at this hotel this past weekend as we went to Charleston to participate in the Charleston Marathon. The staff and the location were great. When I arrived and checked into my room I was not happy with the view as I was looking at a pile of sheet rock outside my window. I talked to the front desk...

Like everyone else has said, the renovations kind of negated all of the other lovely things about this hotel. Great location, very friendly staff, rooms weren't anything opulent but nice enough. Unfortunately the sounds of carpet bring ripped up at 6pm on a Friday evening and drilling at 8am on a Sunday morning made it a little tough for us...

Dear spancheee, Thank you for choosing to spend your anniversary weekend with us here at the Charleston Renaissance! We are here to provide excellent service to each and every one of our guests and I am sorry that the renovations interfered with that. We hope to have the opportunity to host you on your next trip to the Holy City!

My husband and I chose this hotel because it is in the historic district. Unfortunately for us renovation was occurring and the noise of the drilling was ear splitting. They even worked all day Sunday. Good location but wait until renovations are done

First the good things about the hotel; location, the renovated rooms are nice, parking garage right across the street decent lounge. There is no concierge lounge, you do get a breakfast voucher however. A comment about the construction at the hotel during my stay the week of December 19, 2016 I have stayed in plenty of properties undergoing renovations/construction, what...

My husband and I enjoyed our stay over Labor Day weekend!

The Renaissance Hotel is located just off King St with a parking garage right next to the hotel. Very EZ to get to airport from here. We had two rooms on the 2nd floor.

The staff here are great especially those at the front desk and the valet gentlemen. The property is undergoing renovations but we didn't spend much time in the room. One drawback is that any noise from the halls and other doors can be heard easily so probably best to get rooms away from high traffic areas like the elevators. We...

We stopped in at Barony tavern in the Renaissance Hotel. They have good food and the hotel is located in the downtown area and very convenient to seeing the many sites in the downtown.

In summary, I'd rate this as similar to a Hilton Garden Inn or Hampton Inn (3 star budget hotel), not what I would expect from a Renaissance. We had stayed here 3 years ago and had a phenomenal stay then, so that is our comparison point. I'm giving it a 3 star rating due to the hotel location. Here are...
