    • Older travelers

      The restaurant at the very top of the hotel has a tremendious bay side view and the food and service in the restaurant was very good, another service that stands out is the free shuttle service to the historical district.

      The room size

    • Family with children

      The location is great! Close to the city without being in the city and paying high rates.

      One of the main reasons I chose this hotel was because it offers a shuttle into the the city. The shuttle was reliable during our stay, however on 2 return trips to the hotel the shuttle was full. The first time, the driver was kind enough to drop off the group on the shuttle and return to pick up those of us who were unable to get on the shuttle (about 7 of us). The second time the shuttle was full, the driver said he would come back for us (about 6 of us), but at that point we had been waiting long enough and ended up taking a taxi back to the hotel. So, while the shuttle appeared to stick to the schedule posted, it isn't necessarily guaranteed you are going to get on the shuttle:(

    • Older travelers

      We loved the location, views, pool and the set up of the room.We liked the dining room and view of the marshlands from our table. The breakfasts were good including the buffet. Staff was very nice throughout the hotel.

      Our air conditioner was very loud at night when we were trying to sleep and someone did come to fix it but with no success. It would be good to have a tag to put on the door to let the maid know the room can be cleaned...there was just a tag for when you didn't want to be bothered. We were gone for 5 out of 6 hours one day and never had the room cleaned. The elevators were very slow, especially in the am. Somehow even with Direct TV the hotel still did not get athe major NBC channel.

    • Single

      Good location for visiting the city and visiting the beach. Easy travel. Wonderful view from the restaurant.

    • Family with children

      I assumed that this hotel, like all other hotels, would provide a hot breakfest, a industry standard. It did not provide any breakfeast. Breakfeast was an additional 10.00. I was not happy about this.

    • Group of friends

      The staff was very helpful, the Restaurant and bar on top was great, food was good, wait staff very nice, view was beautiful, the hotel shuttle to Charleston was very convenient.

    • Couple

      What we liked best was the location to the historic areas of Charleston and the shuttle service that would drop off and pick up at different locations in the downtown area

      We had trouble with the billing....we had a credit card on file to pay for the room. a gift from a relative, and a different card for room incidentals. The billing was mixed up after being assured everything was fine when we checked in, with room charges being added to the wrong card and we had to call our bank and have the hotel fax information to them to credit our account.

    • Family with children

      I loved the view from our room and the restuarant was excellent!

      The hotel is old and needs some improvements. You pay for the view not the room!

    • Couple

      Would have to say the bar/lounge at the top with a 360 degree view.Very nice to sip on a beer and stare at Charleston from 15 stories up.

      The room service meals were a lil' pricey...(stil got breakfast anyways)Wasn't bad either

    • Older travelers

      The staff was very nice. Breakfast each day was very good. The view while eating at the restraunt was beautiful.

      There is no place to take large group pictures.

    • Older travelers

      We loved the view from our 11th floor room. We also loved the restaurant at the top of the hotel.

    • Older travelers

      friendly, courteous reception

      Location is close to city, but difficult to access. Map on website is erroneous and misleading.

    • Older travelers

      Friendly staff - they were very understanding and cooperative when I canceled the second night.

      Small room, double bed, worn bathtub, poor repair in general, noisy, loud A/C, poor internet connectivity.

    • Older travelers

      The staff was great, especially Cathrine in the lounge and waitstaff in the restaurant. The view from the room and the lounge/restaurant was spectacular. The was OK, but not fantastic, and its very convenient to down town Charleston.

      Really no complaints. The fact is this this is an older hotel and currently being remodeled, which transforms into some "age imperfections" and an unpleasant paint smell, the latter of which is certainly temporary. Couple other peeves: balcony door was prevented from opening by way of a hardware installation and the parking lot was designed for compact cars not a full size truck.

    • Single

      Conveinence to my meeting.

      Noisey. There were two Marriott hotels within eyesight that were more modern and had similar room rates. The Holiday hotel is an old hotel that needs complete remodeling.
