My husband took me here for my birthday weekend, and the views of the bay are stunning! Our balcony overlooking the bay allowed us to relax and enjoy the view. However, this was our first time to Charleston, and the downtown area was not close by...we needed to take a taxi (about $10 each way). The rooms are very comfortable... More

We stayed at this property recently, in a one bedroom suite. This is a good courtyard at a very good location, close to downtown (though not walkable), with a nice view of of the marina. The breakfast bar is average, but for $3/child, not a bad deal. As mentioned earlier, the one bedroom suite, with a pull out couch, was... More

Dear AAF62, thank you for taking the time to post a review. I am so pleased you enjoyed your recent stay at the Courtyard Charleston. As you stated, our location is minutes away from downtown, and the hotel itself being right on the river, makes us the "hotel of choice" for many visitors to the area. It was great to... More

Stayed here for a weekend in November. The outside of this hotel is very nice as are the common outdoor areas. There are some maintenance and housekeeping issues with the hotel - things I would not expect to find at any Marriott property. The bathroom needed some major work - the top of the toilet tank did not fit the... More

This Marriott Courtyard is a wonderful hotel at the Marina. The only drawback is it is just a little too far from just about everything except the Marina. In some ways, however, that is not a big problem. I stayed here for a combination business/fun trip. The hotel is a fully modern Marriott Courtyard, with a small restaurant (did not... More

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary with a trip to Charleston and Savannah. Booked this hotel for two reasons: one I'm a Marriot Gild member and two the supposed distance to Charleston.

We loved this hotel. The room was spacious and very clean. The bed was comfy. We especially enjoyed the help of Beth at the front desk. She gave us numerous tips to help us, as this was our first time in Charleston. She told us about the hotel shuttle to the waterfront, only $6 round trip each. She recommended 2... More
