This Marriott held up to the brand's standards. The room was clean and modern all the way down to the shampoo and toiletries. While staying here I got to attend the Farmer's market which was right outside and from what I hear, takes place every Saturday. The breakfast buffet was good... Fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, oatmeal, bagels, and they even...

Have stayed here several times over the past year or so and this is my third review of this hotel. Front desk, bellman/valets and concierge lounge staff are excellent. Always a kind greeting and efficient check-in. The concierge lounge ladies work very hard to keep the amenities stocked and check on the guests-very impressive. However, on this visit several things...

I recently stayed here and would highly recommend it. I thought my room was spacious and very clean. The gym has a good selection of machines and a nice indoor pool. Great location as well with lots to do right around the hotel including the capital of SC.

I'm a big fan of Marriott, but I would not stay at this one again, even if it was free. I'm writing this review at 2:50 am instead of sleeping because of noise. My one request was for a quiet room. We got a room near the elevator and there is a dog barking at every sound in the room...

The location was convenient because I had business several blocks away. The hotel rooms show signs of wear and could benefit from renovation. Breakfast service from the menu was very slow. I went to the buffet and we waited almost 15 minutes for my wife's choice from the menu. There wasn't a large breakfast crowd but the restaurant was short...

So I would've given this hotel a 5 star rating but there were just a few minor things with the room that could've been a tad bit better. Upon arriving, I noticed a hair on the toilet seat which was kind of off putting, and the shower hadn't been cleaned thoroughly. Other than that rooms are nice, very comfy beds,...
