Convenient place to stay if you want to visit Charleston

Very nice hotel - front desk staff are wonderful at recommending places to eat and things to do. There is a free shuttle to and from downtown Charleston in the evening that drops you off near the market - perfect because all the restaurants and shopping are right within walking distance. It's an easy drive into town and less expensive, so you can still see all the sights and not drain your wallet.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Take the shuttle at night - all the restaurants and nightclubs are within a few blocks. In the day you can take a $10.00 cab, or drive into downtown and either park at the visitor's center or one of the parking garages. Pretty much everything is in walking distance.

take the evening shuttle or short (10min) drive to historic downtown. so much to see and do. the carriage tour thru downtown is a must do if you like history and culture. the city market during the daytime is also a must do for shopping.

Just Ok

I was expecting a little better from a Marriott chain but it was just ok. The location was very good but the room left a lot to be desired. There was mold on the bathroom floor that looked nasty and the room and bathroom area was pretty small. Breakfast was good but nothing out of the ordinary. The elevators were extremely slow. Next time, I'll look around for something a little better.Overall...Just Ok.

Excellent Hotel with the Friendliest Staff

We had a very nice experience at this hotel, the staff is fantastic, very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The hotel room was super clean, comfortable and spacious. The separate den/office area from the sleeping area was very convenient with a separate TV and a wet bar, which made all the difference. The breakfast served until 10:00 am was amazing, with your choice of different hot items, pastries, fruits, cereals (hot and cold) gave you a nice start to your day. The evening shuttle to downtown Charleston was very convenient too, leaving the car in the hotel you needn't worry about parking downtown which can be a hassle. Finally, I recommend this hotel because we had a very nice stay here and we had a wonderful experience.

Great Stay!

This is our first visit to Charleston. Unfortunately we came during graduation weekend and a lot of the hotels downtown were booked. After much searching we settled on Springhill. When we arrived it was quiet late. Vera, the young girl at the desk was so sweet. Told us about the shuttle that could take us to town and grab dinner. She guided us on the best sights to see in town. The room was newly remodeled and quiet spacious. Two queen beds and a pull out couch, two seperste tv's and a nice kitchenette . The view of the the pier was beautiful and we enjoyed the hot tub as well. We will definitely stay here again. Why pay the price for a more expensive room downtowun when they provide a free shuttle? Oh ! The breakfast was wonderful. One of out best stays!
