My husband and I were so pleased with our stay here two years ago, we decided to stay again during our March visit to Charleston. What was once an elegantly furnished lobby and room with a southern touch is now a cookie cutter ultra contemporary hotel. As soon as we walked into the once plush lobby, we knew things had...

Well equipped spacious room in old Greyhound building. Wifi is payable and poor if not in the conference room network. No restaurant but free breakfast with limited selection. Valet parking staff very helpful the rest is average. Very close to the heart of shopping district. The conference facilities were well served.

Excellent warm knowledgeable reception from the valet as we drove up. It so happened they were having a worldwide Renaissance event. Complimentary local beers, local whiskey and Rodney King barbecue. Also a local band. Well done event! Rooms are comfortable, bright and cheery. All staff is on their toes! Happy to recommend the Renaissance Charleston- oh yes, great location just...

Lobby was nice, construction on dining room and bar so they were not available. Front desk seemed indifferent and annoyed not sure why. Great locations. We were there for 1 night and we normally don't spend that kind of money but we were treating ourselves. Our room was very nice and clean but our reservation was screwed up and we...

Full disclosure = I am a Hilton guy. I travel a lot for work and Hilton properties are my "go to" choice. But I do occasionally stay at Marriott brands, mostly Courtyards and Spring Hill Suites. So when this Renaissance was the hotel for a wedding, I thought "great, we get to stay at a top of the line Marriott"....

We upgraded to this hotel from a Courtyard. We did that to be in the city and could walk around town. The hotel is well situated to get around town. After booking we were informed that the restaurant would be closed for an upgrade. Because of this the hotel offered a morning breakfast that was more than acceptable. They offered...

Newly remodeled lobby and rooms. Friendly staff. Excellent location. Free guest bikes. Great platinum free breakfast. Gym is new and nice. Pool is a little small (but hotel is small) with nice comfy lounge chairs.

The location is great. The hotel is comfortable and very millennial friendly (I am not one). Nothing like "your mother's Marriott" as the bedrooms have no carpet, funky art and wallpaper. I didn't mind it but some might. The flatscreen TV was terrific and huge for the size of the room. Loved it. The bathroom wallpaper was bunny rabbits which...

Our room was lovely and spacious, the bathrooms well-appointed (Aveda bath products, yay!) and the staff courteous, friendly and helpful. Because the restaurant was closed for renovations, a complimentary hot breakfast buffet was offered, which, while not elaborate (scrambled eggs, bacon/sausage, biscuits, fresh fruit, toast/bagels) was fine. A complimentary wine/beer cocktail bar was also provided from 5:00-7:00 or so. (a...
