Great place to stay for a weekend escape to Charleston

My husband and I left the kids with their grandparents and escaped for an evening to Charleston. Our king room was very comfortable and we found all the staff to be very helpful and friendly. The bar/ lounge area was small but vozy and welcoming. Best of all, you are in walking distance of most of Charleston's fine dining and nightlife establishments.

An excellent hotel

The staff was extremely friendly and very accommodating. We asked about selecting a tour and they offered to book it for us, no extra cost and hassle free! We had a great time, excellent location, extremely clean room, beautiful hotel. Great coffee/pastry and luncheonette across the street. Pool was in excellent condition, water clean. My wife and I highly recommend staying here.

Lovely birthday weekend

The staff and amenities at this hotel were great. The staff was gracious and the location just fine for what we wanted--center of town. The room was comfortable.

Great location for shopping!

We loved everything about this hotel. We were so happy that it was right in the heart of the King Street shopping district. Could walk everywhere we needed to go. There is even a great salon across the street. We enjoyed the outdoor pool, as well.

Awesome Labor Day in Charleston

We travel extensively overseas but had never made it to South Carolina. Had a great trip. Excellent walking around city with all of the amenities. Wonderful bars. Stayed at Renaissance. Impecably maintained. Very helpful staff. The only downer was that we had booked a king room and they gave us a double. Told us that there was no King avaialble even though the reservation asked for a King. My wife and I have not slept in a double since college days. Also for whatever reason, the pool is surrounded by gravel, thus to walk to your chair you have to step over these painful pebbles. Dumb idea. In this day and and age I am sure they can come up with better surface. But overall I would highly recommend this hotel and the city.

Excellent Hotel

Room accomodations were excellent. Very clean and room was made up on time. Room service was also good, breakfast menu was very diverse and not overly expensive. Gym accomadations were well balanced and provided both cardio and strength conditioning. Service dask and concierge were all helpful throughout the stay.

lovely hotel in great location

it was a wonderful stay of one night. when we arrived the room was not ready yet (not a big deal, we wanted to go out anyway), so later in the evening the manager sent us a complimentary dish of local cheese to apologize for the glitch. everybody was very friendly. the hotel is walking distance from several restaurants, right in the middle of major shopping. parking is conveniently located across the street. rooms have real cable internet access, no wireless, that costs $12.95 per day.

Renaissance Charleston Historic Diistric

The hotel as well as the location around it was great. The central location of the hotel in the French Quarter means that most everything you could want to do or see is within walking distance. You can drive around if you wish but the streets of Charleston are very narrow and on street parking is limited. I also found the local prices for things to be quite fair and not what one would expect in a resort destination.
