Very good location in terms of proximity to historic district. Valets / bellmen and front desk staff were very helpful and attentive. The bottled water at the entrance was a nice touch -- much appreciated in the heat. Our room itself was disappointing. The lighting throughout the room was very dim, including lighting in the small bathroom. This drove me...

We are loyal Marriott consumers and have stayed in many hotels. This is NOT a category 8 establishment. The lobby is grand, no arguing that, as is the first floor bar. Both are chic and comfortable. Our room, however, was disappointing. Do not request a balcony room; there is absolutely no view and the chairs are hard and uncomfortable.The furniture...

Thank you very much for your feedback and for your loyatly to Marriott. I'm happy that you felt the lobby was both "chic and comfortable" as we've enjoyed our partnership with local designer Michael Mitchell who's assisted us in creating a space that incorporates both intriguing and indigenous elements.

Our stay the the Marriott Renaissance in Charleston SC was a most warm and delightful stay that wanted us to extend our stay.

This is a very nice hotel in a very good location. The rooms are comfortable and white nice. It is close to a four star property and could use some updates to the rooms but I don't think they are as outdated as some other reviewers do. The service is a bit spotty however it is mostly very good as...

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. We had requested early check in which we did receive. After checking in we decided to walk around downtown and see some sites. The hotel clerk recommended some places that we should be sure and see. She gave us a map and directions. Later, upon returning to the room, we found...

We arrived very late, and were pleasantly surprised how quickly we were checked into our room and valet took off with our car! The hotel is adorable, the rooms look like they've been renovated, we had a room on the 3rd floor with a balcony. (granted the view was over a noisy smelly alley) regardless... It was clean and safe....

This is a fantastic place to stay, within walking distance of the City Market, Marion Square, King St. and just a bit further to the Museum area. The hotel staff is fantastic, if you've never been to Charleston before, just ask anyone and they will help you with directions, reservations, anything. The lobby is well appointed as are the rooms....

This hotel really blew me away. I used to be a die-hard Hilton loyalist but the Marriott family lured me away with their courteous and genuinely happy staff. The amenities were INCREDIBLE from the gym overlooking the pool - to the rooftop pool overlooking historic downtown Charleston. Everyone at this hotel was phenomenal from the Valets to the bartenders to...

You could not ask for more from a hotel anywhere and this one is excellent for the best way to experience Charleston.

This is my Fifth visit to Charleston and my first stay at the Renaissance. We stayed here bc we had "points" . We were upgraded to a balcony room.
