We stayed on the 3rd floor in room 335; the room was clean, with all working appliances. The workers were professional and friendly. We enjoyed the evening reception where snacks, including: carrots, broccoli, dip, meat balls, nachos and drinks. Breakfast was congested, with limited seating at 9:00 a.m., but we chose to sit outside, which was a little brisk. Cooked...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 6 January 2017

This hotel was absolutely beautiful, so historic. The valet was wonderful and recommended a fantastic restaurant. Check in was a breeze and the complimentary afternoon drinks were perfect, would have loved a frozen margarita, but the vodka sour was amazing. Traveling with son, daughter-in-law, 2 grandsons and husband here in Charleston to show off the sights to our children. They...

Once I entered our room I tried to remember if I had ever stayed in a Hotel of this quality ...without windows in the rooms. Nope, I could not recall ever staying in a room where I felt so claustrophobic. Now I'm not full blown anxious in small spaces but if you are... don't stay here. It was a nice...

Dear PietoJ, I would like to apologize about your recent stay at the Embassy Suites Charleston Historic. I am sorry about your guest rooms not having any windows. Not all rooms at this historic location have windows due to it originally being a military fort. Some of the rooms without windows are the most historic as well as larger. We...

Yes the place needs updating, but it's a historic building and, some of the 1800 historic artifacts are to be loved in this hotel, like the brick walls. The customer service and food, including the free evening reception, makes this hotel a favorite!!

If you are an insomniac, then this is the place to be. We had two rooms on the fourth floor at the King Street side of the hotel looking out towards the garage. All night long you hear banging and garage pickup, and who knows what else. We need a vacation from our vacation just to get a good night's...

If you are looking for rooms that are indicative of typical Embassy suites, you will not find them here. Very poorly maintained and not worth the money. The pics on-line are far and away better than what you actually get. The construction that was going on around the hotel made it difficult to get in and out of and created...

I just completed a stay at the Embassy Suites while attending the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition. The hotel was in a fantastic location for this event, next door to Marion Square and a short distance from the Visitor's Center. Restaurants, churches, the Market, are all a short walk away. Check-in was a breeze. I did it online so was just handed...

The Hotel is very beautiful with great Charleston history. There is currently construction along a part of the building. Ask if your suite is along the construction if you are not wanting to be woken up early. Overall stay was very nice.
