Charleston Marriott

170 Lockwood Dr., Charleston, South Carolina, 29403, United States

The sunset views from the balconies of this river-view hotel get better the higher you go—they're wonderful from the seasonal rooftop Aqua Terrace bar and lounge, where drinks and tapas are served. A glamorous glass addition with a cascading waterfall houses the concierge desk. The pool area is fringed by plenty of palms, and a fitness center has a wall of windows to let in the sun. The aromas from the brick oven in the Saffire restaurant are intoxicating, as are the myriad flatbreads it produces. The cuisine is laudable—contemporary dishes with refreshingly flavorful low-calorie options.
