great location, especially if need to be in the area of University Hospitals buildings. Resturant for dinner was not open, but could walk a few steps across the courtyard to the Hilton for dinner. Bar was open with a wonderful couple of bartenders with great personalities, and some homemade chille for snacking after a long day. View is wonderful if... More

Dear Metatj, It is nice to hear that your stay at the Courtyard Charleston was remarkable. We're glad that our downtown location was excellent and it's closeness to all tourist attractions with a hop, skip and a jump was a great plus. With our location minutes away from downtown, and the hotel being right on the banks of Ashley river,... More

We really enjoyed the location of this hotel. In one direction were the plantations and in the other direction was the old market area. It was an ideal hotel! The pool area kept us busy every afternoon. The view from the pool was really beautiful. We also enjoyed breakfasts at the hotel every day.

I am particular about the type of room I stay in, and this fit the bill. High floor, balcony, terrific view of the marina and bridges. After consulting the Web site I requested a corner room since it had many large windows (I also like lots of light), and that is what I received. Will be requesting that room the... More

My wife and I spent a super week at this Courtyards. Our room was very comfortable and spacious. We toured the city almost daily since the hotel provided free shuttle service to the center of town. Return shuttles came almost every hour to the hotel. Personnel were very accommodating. Breakfast was included with our stay and it had an enormous... More

Nice hotel with a view of the harbor. All normal amenities were found. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only draw back was there was some noise from either the harbor our the interstate that was noticeable occasionally. Nice hotel close to downtown.

I surprised my wife with a 2 day visit to Charleston and searched for the best price on a King room in the city. I was pleased to find a good rate at the Marriott in the Marina district. We spent the entire day exploring the city and it's magnificent history and architecture. After 10 hours in the old city,... More

Easy check-in. Very clean, comfortable. Our favorite part was the lower level parking garage with elevator that put us out right near our room so you don't have to walk very far at all. The light was out in the bathroom - made one call - it was fixed in moments. Convenient location on the peninsula, although not walking distance... More

Great water view with location on marina, and great southern comfort style deep verandas with lots of rocking chairs to watch marina activity. Quiet given proximity to freeway, and excellent restaurant next door at Hilton. Quick shuttle to Historic downtown too.
