HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We stayed at the Embassy Suites for 5 nights, Monday through Friday, & thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We chose our room through a Hilton App that allowed us to see what we were getting (4th floor, odd number....) & the room was just great - what more would you want than two rooms, two TVs, a well-appointed bath, frig, etc.....

This property is an Embassy Suites that was converted from the old Citadel. It is very historic and very old. Thus, is you are looking for a flashy, modern hotel, this is not the place for you. I love historic buildings and I loved staying here. The public areas are beautiful. The room was a bit dark and a bit...

The Old Citadel site was developed in 1758 and has undergone many changes before being taken over by Embassy Suites in 1996. The staff is extremely accommodating and do the best they can with what they have to work with. The guest suites need major renovations, especially the bathrooms. The ten foot wall surrounding the complex obstructs outside views for...

Been years since been here. Hotel staff was superb. Room in historic section clean and comfortable and spacious. The breakfast was prepared to order. Absolutely happy with the mean. Only tip is be carful in shower. Our tub-shower combination was too slick to safely stand. Had to put a towel in tub to shower.

The Embassy Suites in downtown Charleston is a wonderful place to stay when visiting this enchanting city. The rooms are clean, the staff is helpful and friendly. With a cooked to order breakfast and an evening happy hour, the price cannot be beat. The onsite restaurant also offers a great menu and the food is reasonably priced.

Staff was great, lots of running around room for young kids, park right next door with farmers market and bounce house on Saturday, walking distance to children's museum. I would stay here again, and recommend it for families with young children.

I always thought all Embassy Suites were awesome,but this failed to live up to he standards. The internet is weak.As a Hilton Honors member I could check in early. The room they had me booked into looked ok but upon arriving it had only one very small window. It was just ok, not the awesome I had come to expect.

The property was very good and in an excellent location. We loved the fact that it is the original Citadel College and is reported to be haunted. Our granddaughter loved that fact. The complementary breakfast was excellent which made for a very good value at the hotel and provided a convenience of not having to go out for breakfast.
