Guest reviews for Renaissance Charleston Historic District Hotel

Guaranteed reservation but no room

We made our reservation six months in advanced. Phoned two weeks before our scheduled arrival to ensure that the room was guaranteed to our credit card as we wouldn't be arriving till late in the evening. When we arrived we were told that the hotel was full and were sent to another Marriott hotel across town. I DO NOT understand the point of a guaranteed reservation if it is in fact ignored. We came back to your hotel the next morning at around 9am the next morning to meet our friends. We were assured by the hotel staff that we would be into our room as soon as possible. As check out was 11am and housekeeping was told our room was priority one, we would be in our room by noon. We finally got in at 3pm. The hotel industry is very competitive. I don't believe in rewarding bad service.

2.5 to 3 star hotel at 4 star price

Nothing special. Rooms weren't 4 stars. Decided to get away for the weekend and reserved a room with two doubles for 3 people. Upon arrival, we received a King and a fold out bed. I had to request a double the next day. At the end of our stay, the front desk refused to compensate for the mix-up. It is not worth the price.Stick with the B&B's or an equivalent 3 star hotel in downtown Charleston. They are worth the price.

Great Location, Friendly Staff, Quiet Rooms

The Renaissance Hotel is located in the heart of the historic district of Charleston, is within walking distance of the Market area, and French Quarter,is a half block off King street,if your looking for shoes king street has an abundance of them, from casual walking to trendy high heels.College of Charleston is three blocks away off of George Street, the Citadel is a short drive from hotel. The Battery and Rainbow is only a short Trolly Ride (runs every twenty minutes). Restaurants are plentifull, I recommend Hanks Seafood on Haynes Street, be sure to try the ""She Crab Soup,"" I can not say enough about the staff at the Renaissance, they were friendly and very helpfull, the Concierge was very helpfull with information, directions and reservations for the various activities,and sites we did while in Charleston, when we do return to Charleston we will book this hotel.The only thing I didn't care for was the parking, but then every hotel in the Historic District has the same problem, parking in the area is at a premium.

What a change

Having stayed here before, and loving it I had no issues rebooking. However I was sorely disappointed. The hotel was under construction, my room reeked of smoke and bacon from uncleaned filters (the hotels explanation not mine), the fire alam went off and this was all before 9 AM. The staff while cordial was basically disinterested in the problems presented. With so many lovely hotels in Charleston the Renaissance will no longer get my business.

Beautifully done hotel that seems older than 6 years.

A wonderful, short stay. A beautiful hotel with a friendly staff. The "joggling board" out front was fun to sit on. Cozy fireplace in the lounge area. Bedding was fabulous.

Excellent Hotel

Excellent Hotel. The best things about the hotel is that one is only 3-5 blocks from the main historic area, but the hotel is extremely quiet because it is on a low traffic side street. Many of the other hotels and inns are on streets where you get weekend bar traffic on the sidewalk until early in the morning because of the C of C being close by. They also have parking directly across the street from hotel, which is not always the case in downtown parking. One does pay a fee, but it was much more reasonable than some other hotels that I checked out.

This hotel has everything!

We spent five nights at this hotel and we loved every minute. The staff was outstanding---so friendly and helpful and good at anticipating needs. The amenities were numerous and great---down to a computer at checkout where it was easy to print out boarding passes. The furnishing are charming, the restaurant is wonderful, and the location is terrific. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

Charleston Comfort

Staff very friendly and helpful. The location was a few blocks from where I would have preferred to stay. The beds were heavenly. Would definitely stay there again.

just ok

There was nothing particularly wrong with this hotel, but for 4 stars I just expected more. Cleaning service was mediocre, but rest of staff was very helpful. Rooms and pool area were pretty small (pictures are somewhat deceiving). Overall though we had a great time. The restaurant was very nice and had an excellent Sunday brunch. If we visited again we would likely try someplace else, but you won't be disappointed if you stay here.
