Residence Inn by Marriott Riverview Review

The Residence Inn provides a unique extended stay service for those who are committed to stay for a while in the Charleston area whether for business or personal reasons. The Staff and management at the Residence Inn ensure that inn guests feel as welcomed and as much a part of a community as possible. To that end, every possible measure has been taken to create an environment that invites guests to come out and be a part of the social functions scheduled for their pleasure.

A continental breakfast is provided in the sunny dining room for guests on a daily basis with some additional hot items served such as eggs, sausage and waffles for those with a more hearty appetite. Monday through Thursday evenings from 6 - 7:30 pm, a manager's reception is provided with beer, wine and light hors d oeuvres to initiate a social connection and camaraderie among guests. During the summer season, often the manager's reception will be planned for poolside where a grill may be utilized for hotdogs and chips and dip may be provided to create a pool party atmosphere.

Though the Residence Inn staff works to create a fun and comfortable social environment, they thoroughly understand that many of the residents are in town for business purposes. An efficient meeting space, suitable for 30, is available and several fine, local eateries are experts at catering affairs for the Residence Inn. A business center stocked with paper and complete with computer equipment, printer, fax machine and shredder is available to residents along with an on site, universal ATM banking station.

The Residence Inn has 119 rooms to offer in various sizes and accommodations. Almost two-dozen rooms have a balcony from which spectacular views of the marshlands can be enjoyed. Other rooms offer enclosed sunrooms for 4-season enjoyment. All are tastefully furnished in red and gold toned tropical rattan and cushioned furniture to create a relaxing tropical ambiance. Seascape art and tropical scenes, rich with palms trees further the laid-back island feel created by the decor in these rooms. There are one-bedroom suites, which offer a living area, kitchen with a refrigerator and stovetop or two-bedroom suites with a full kitchen and living area as well as a desk area for work or business. Rooms come equipped with standard conveniences: hair driers, iron and board and televisions. One particularly accommodating feature about the Residence Inn is that there are designated pet friendly rooms to eliminate the stress of boarding your pet while traveling for business or on family vacation. These rooms require only a minimal charge to cover professional cleaning costs at the end of the guest's stay.

A shuttle is available for convenient travel to downtown Charleston or to the area hospitals so driving and parking is not a concern for travelers. Also provided is a sports court for basketball or volleyball for physical activity and access to a fully equipped fitness center as well. So whether staying at length for business, pleasure, personal or pre-relocation purposes, The Residence Inn provides full self-catering living quarters, business space, friendly atmosphere, mini food market, transportation, athletic outlets and pet accommodations all just miles from Charleston and the beaches.

While one is away from home, they can still feel and make themselves at home at the lovely Residence Inn which earns, for value, cleanliness, convenience and service attention to guest's needs while on extended stay away from home, a higher than average 3-diamond rating.
