Enjoy our complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast and nightly Manager's reception. We look forward to welcoming you to the Holy City with warm, Southern hospitality.

I have to agree with the majority. Great history but tired. If they put some money into it they could have a really nice property. Nice made to order breakfast like most Embassy Suites. So many positive points. Staff was friendly.

Our group consisted on 26 couples and the Embassy Suites hotel provided the ideal accommodations for our weekend in Charleston. Every aspect of the hotel was ideal down to parking options, convenience to local restaurants and many other aspects.

I remember it being a good 10 min drive from the hotel; however, as a Southerner, I would advise against going to Charleston during the hurricane season.

Not sure about a shuttle. Pretty sure it is less than a mile. We walked it but likely not an option for someone leaving on a cruise.
