Best time to visit
The Renaissance is a refined hotel located in Charleston’s touristy and vibrant historic district. It has 6 floors, 162 rooms and several suites. The hotel was built in 2000 and is nonsmoking. It does not accept pets. Rates for a standard room typically range from $200-360; valet parking is an extra $19, or there is a $12 charge for self parking. The College of Charleston is only a few blocks away, and room rates and can increase significantly during major college events.
Hotel amenities include a relatively small outdoor heated pool as well as a workout room. There also is a restaurant and bar. Rooms include refrigerators, and microwaves are available upon request. With a prime location in the middle of the trendy historic district, one would expect plenty of good retail stores and restaurants, and one would be right! The hotel provided a map with about 40 restaurants within a 1 mile radius. The area seemed safe to walk around at night.
While the front desk clerk was pleasant and helpful, checking in was disappointing because a high floor quiet room had been reserved, and a second floor room facing a busier street initially had been assigned. The front desk clerk offered a free breakfast coupon for the oversight. She was able to locate a room on the second floor that was somewhat quieter than the initial room. This room itself was slightly small, but it was clean and had a large comfortable bed with a thick duvet. Both the bathroom controls and heater worked properly. Being quite tired that night it was easy to sleep soundly, though street noises were occasionally noticeable. One annoyance though was that it took several attempts to get the room curtains to close properly. Breakfast eggs and a biscuit were reasonably tasty, and the eggs were cooked well - not too dry or too soggy. A slightly greasy veggie omelet tasted better than it looked, and an oat muffin was edible but a bit metallic tasting. The max value of this breakfast would be about $10. The overall stay here was postive, and the most important aspect, the room, was good. However, this hotel is the type of place one would select when convenience trumps price and value.
