Lackluster experience

Not sure if it was the reservation mix-up, getting locked out of my room by the computer, the fabulous view of the police station parking lot, or the bathroom lights too dim to shave by (energy saving CFL bulbs) but I wouldn't recommend paying to stay at this Marriott. Otherwise it wasn't bad.

Too expensive

maid service missed the room on the first day. Lounge and pool area were under construction. Ordered a smoking room on website but hotel said they had no smoking rooms in hotel. Hotel was overbooked for Saturday night parties and there were no available parking spots on the property had to park next door. They have a lot of work to do to make this a 4 star hotel.

The mold room

The room had mold on the ceilings and throughout the bathroom. My wife is highly allergic to mold and mildew. The manager was called to inspect the room and he agreed that the room had mold in it where we showed him. He moved us to another room with a balcony and offered us a $50 credit. We thought we should been more compensated for our troubles. My wife's allergies are still bothering her from the mold in our room. Because of this I can't give a good rating for this so called four star hotel.

Business and pleasure

I chose this hotel based on its location to the MUSC and pool/fitness center. Pool looked nice and fitness center was pretty decent. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Hallway carpet was in very bad shape. Water pressure in the shower was a joke. Coffee shop was decent and bartenders were friendly. I will try a different hotel on my next trip.

Charleston Marriott good and bad

I was in town to see a few concerts and I'll highlight the good and bad of my experience. The Good- very pleasant staff and management( that's not always a norm these days). Good restaurant and bar in the hotel. The Bad- the room had a musty "wet carpet" feel and smell, Since there were no windows that opened(another downer since it was 65 degrees all day). I had a friend staying in a different room and the smell was similar.

pleasant courtyard in summer

An indoor pool would have made the hotel a better value, and/ or the breakfast buffet. Also, there was an additional charge for the shuttle, which was misrepresented in the literature. The staff was very pleasant and helpful with directions.

Fulfilled my expectations

Everything was above average. The main complaint that I have is that I could hear the people in the room next door pretty easily in the morning.
