After having wonderful experiences at the Grand Bohemian hotels in Charlotte and Asheville earlier in the month, we decided to try Charleston. We were greeted at the small, cramped hotel registration/valet parking area by an empty Bellman’s stand.
Check-in was at 4 o’clock and our room was not yet ready by 3:45. They directed us upstairs to the only restaurant they have - which is high end bar food. At over $700 a night for our stay we would’ve expected a fine dining option but about the best thing on the menu was a well-made hamburger. Waitstaff seemed confused, perplexed, and inexperienced and attentive. There’s so much competition for fine dining in Charleston know that the lack of a fine dining experience was a big disappointment.
And then there’s the artwork. Art, of course, is subjective and much of the yard was absolutely breathtaking. However, our room overlooked a courtyard of more modern art, not my favorite. But in our hotel room was a painting of an angry woman staring straight at the bed. Hardly setting the scene for any romantic endeavors. Why in the world they place that there is anybody’s guess.
With so many fine dining options closer to the market Square, we’re likely to stay at Charleston place during our next visit or the Francis Marion hotel, close to the famed Halls chophouse which would highly recommend.

We were supposed to get an upgrade as we are titanium/presidential level with Marriott. We were told there were too many requests and we were not being upgraded. It was an anniversary trip and not one reference any time was ever made towards it. Very expensive restaurant and parking but it is a tourist town. It is a beautiful hotel and centrally located for sightseeing. Terrible view from out room. No pool. Staff were all great and friendly. Would not stay here again but probably a one and done visit to Charleston anyway.

Let me preface this review by saying the Grand Bohemian‘s art deco style is NOT our style at all! I knew this going in but we chose the hotel for location and on-site bar/restaurant.
The location is perfect! Wedged between all the shops on King street and the great restaurants around Meeting street. Just a few blocks from the historic Charleston city market. Rooftop bar and restaurant served up good drinks and the breakfast we had there was very good. There was a little outdoor courtyard which had live music and a cigar bus one night which was a cute touch.
So in these ways the hotel delivered.
Also, all the staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful with the exception of valet.
There were a few negatives. There is absolutely no mention or upgrades for your Marriott status. Rooms are small and our particular room not only had no view but had the tiniest window! There was this huge long wall and the window was tucked into one side( picture below). It gave the room a claustrophobic feel with not enough natural light. Also- we found the pictures in the room kind of disturbing and not soothing (see below). Shower was nice and large but had a very funky smell which my husband said was mold. Lights for entire bathroom are outside the bathroom and there are no fans. So The rooms were definitely a fail for us.
Lastly when we arrived there was no where to pull up and there was no valet in sight. By the time we went in to try to find somebody there were five cars blocking the street lined up waiting for the valet behind us. So we just grabbed a cart and took our own bags. When leaving it was the same situation. One valet- several waiting. So again we grabbed a cart, and took our things down to the car. The valet came over and my husband gave him a nice tip. You would think he would at least help unload our bags into the car but he just took the tip and walked away. Given the tiny valet area to pull into, and the fact that you pretty much have to valet your car, There really needs to be several valet’s on site all the time in my opinion. If you like art deco, a rooftop bar, a central location, and don’t mind the quirks, this hotel would work for you. For us, there is another Marriott property very close by that is more our style that we will choose for our next visit.
Great location but otherwise not so great place to stay

This hotel is centrally located in the Charleston Historic District, meaning you can walk to pretty much everything from here. That is the best part about this hotel. But most of the rooms have no view whatsoever; housekeeping service is spotty; the restaurant's breakfast offerings are slim and overpriced; the fitness center is tiny and not well kept (towels were not replaced and video monitors had no video--audio only). The only parking option is valet for $39/night. The front desk staff, on the other hand, is extremely accommodating. David Knaupff was great, helpful, caring and generous. He got us into a better room after we complained about the higher priced "larger room" that looked into the hotel's art gallery on one side (where anyone could see in) and a construction site/wall on the other side. Despite his kindness, we would not stay here again.
