    Loved our stay

    Great room, very comfortable. Bathroom is a little on the small side but it works . We had a great view of the Square and the harbor.

    The property and the room were very nice. However, the parking and the garage system proved to be a nightmare for us. First, the parking is inconvenient at half a block from the hotel. However, the real problem is the automatic parking system. When we were leaving at 4am to catch an early plane, it would not let us out. Mistakenly, our parking card terminated a day earlier than our stay and we were stuck at 4am and about to miss our flight. I had to run a half block back to the front desk and even with a hotel employ speaking for us, it was very difficult to get the gate attendant to open the gate. Fortunately, we made our flight, but we learned our lesson. We will never stay where there is an unmanned parking garage, again.

    Elegant Marion Park Hotel

    We loved the atmosphere - jazz music in the lobby and in the restaurant/bar. Doormen opened the doors and said, "hello" and "you're welcome". The maintenance and housekeeping staff said, "good morning". The 1924 hotel had undergone a significant up fit and it was well executed.

    This is an old hotel and a great location! The restaurant and bar are really tatty. The bedrooms are just ok! The bathroom tiny, the closet even smaller. I get it is Charleston and I get the location is a great one. But seriously update already!
