Close to downtown...can walk if you want. We had a poolside room with a view of the harbor. We had a king suite with a comfy king bed and pull out sofa. ..small space but worked fine. Outdoor area is awesome...there's a fire pit, Jacuzzi, pool, and outdoor lounging area. Would definitely return.

Hotel has a great view of the harbor with a wonderful deck to sit on. Rooms are nice with good bed but like the rest of the hotel needs to be updated. Staff was super friendly and helpful in finding places to eat and how to get around the city. Shuttle to the downtown area was reasonable at $6,00 per... More

Odd check-in/registration upstairs and down a walk way or use the elevator. Check-in was quick and painless. I requested a quiet room and was placed on the 2nd floor street side. For a person with insomnia, street side is not ideal. Requested to be moved and was told the hotel was sold out, so I really was not a happy... More

My first mistake was thinking that "Waterfront" meant "waterfront at, near or walkable to anything you would want to see in Charleston," instead of " isolated outpost overlooking a marina next to the Hilton Garden Inn. " The building itself has some exterior trappings consistent with a beachy kind of place, but the guts are pure Courtyard with a sort... More

We spent one night so that we could explore downtown Charleston. The hotel property is beautiful with plenty of places to relax and look at the views of the river. The location is not in walking distance to downtown so the hotel offers a shuttle at the cost of $6 round-trip. The shuttle runs two times each hour. The staff... More

Recently, while travelling home after a month in Florida, my husband and I stopped at the Marriot Waterfront. I had broken my foot the day before. Eddie McBride, the concierge, was more than helpful putting a wheelchair at my disposal both on and off hotel grounds, and arranging for a motor tour of the city. He also helped my husband... More

I stayed at the Courtyard Waterfront back in September or so. This place has gone downhill fast ever since then. The staff seems to change constantly, specially management.

I am a frequent Marriott traveler and found this Courtyard ideal. Modernized layout and lobby, parking is covered so the lobby is actually on second floor. So...at breakfast, or while at the large outdoor pool deck you have nice peaceful views of the harbor and the gorgeous boats. Pay the extra $20 to upgrade to a harbor view as the... More
