Decent, best asset is the river/dock view

This hotel was ok. The best asset was definitely the deck and pool overlooking boats docked on the river. Breakfast was very average and not included so it was overpriced. The room we were in was for a king size bed but was tiny otherwise, but it was cleaned and serviced well. No movies to rent on the TVs. It's a short drive to the downtown area, like 10 minutes so that wasn't too inconvenient and about 20 minute drive to Folly Beach, which we really enjoyed. The elevator was the slowest I have ever been on in my life, it must be really old and is not air conditioned. I would think those should be replaced ASAP. The carpeting overall for the whole hotel was outdated as well. The whole place had a bit of a dingy feel to it, but considering we were mostly out and about around town it was satisfactory for our purposes.

Nice place

The first thing I'll say is all the staff was fantastic and all were willing to help with any need. While it seemed like an older building, mostly everything was well cared for and in good shape. It's location on the river by the marina made for nice views while relaxing by the pool. Downtown was just a short drive or the hotel has a shuttle for a fee. I would recommend this place to family and friends.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

When parking downtown and you don't mind walking, the parking garage on Cumberland seemed to have the best value.

Business and Pleasure

From our arrival on a Thursday evening to our departure on that following Sunday, the staff did so much to welcome us and assure our comfort as their guests. An easy and smooth check-in was the first sign that we had made a good choice in hotels.The warm personal greetings set the right tone for the rest of our stay and we are much in their debt for the extra courtesies, such as the great recommendations on where to eat, that helped us relax and enjoy our trip. The entire staff was friendly and efficient. The room was light and airy as well as clean and comfortable. The "only" thing that wold have made the hotel a "little" better for us would be to have had later hours in the restaurant. It's nice to snack at night while you sit outside. I thank all of the Marriott Waterfront staff on a job superbly performed and for creating a wonderful impression of Charleston hospitality. We look forward to our next return with happy anticipation.

Great view but not so great pillows

The view of the marina from the balcony was amazing and I'd have to say my biggest complaint were the pillows---too firm!

Just an overnight

Loved the M&M's and pretzels at the counter, a nice treat; but the room was tiny and the bathroom was really outdated. Barely enough room for both of us with our stuff. That said, very nicely appointed, very clean, awesome bed. Would probably pick a Marriott closer to town next time.
