Everyone from the bellman to the front desk to the bar was wonderful. They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Philip drove us into town and kept us entertained. Our room was great--with a beautiful view. Perfect pre-Christmas getaway!

Charleston Mariott has no running water in the ENTIRE hotel since 11:40 pm December 10, 2014. Not a single drop of water comes out of the bathroom faucet or shower and ALL of the toilets are also useless. The hotel made no effort to alert the guests. We had to call the front desk and ask what happened. They said...

Dear Guest, I regard your feedback with great concern. Yes, we did have a water shutoff which was unexpected, and I do apologize for not putting up a signage regarding this. I am also sorry that you were disappointed with my associates for their lack of attention to your concerns and agree that they should have offered to bring water...

First, the level of service at this hotel was remarkably high. The front desk staff and cleaners seemed very well trained in proper customer service and overall friendliness. Second, the room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. I did not agree with the other reviews that stated the hotel was "tired" or outdated. Perhaps the room I stayed...

While planning our October trip to Charleston, we were hard pressed to find accommodations that were reasonably priced and convenient. However, seeing that the Charleston Marriott cost more than we wanted to spend, it was more highly rated than other hotels, so we took our chances, hoping that this hotel would be of the same calibre as other Marriott properties....

Had the pleasure of a business trip to Charleston a short time ago. The Marriott rooms were clean and comfortable, the hotel itself is older but well maintained. Staff were excellent, very helpful and pleasant. Only complaint was the food was so-so. All in all I'd give it a 90+.

Perhaps it was the time of the year, however, given the large number of family & friends who booked rooms here for a family wedding, we expected this hotel to be a bit more prepared.

Located a short but un-walkable distance from the historic area and downtown, this hotel has a staff that tries very hard and that is unfailingly cheerful.

This hotel is a wonderful destination hotel with all the service and experience you would expect from a Marriott. The third floor Auqua Bar is a really relaxing spot, and the outdoor veranda by the pool is elegant. This hotel is a short drive from major attractions and has wonderful views! Ask for a high floor.
