This hotel is very nice and the staff is very helpful and the young lady that helped me out really knew the area. I have to also state that I had a great room with a very nice view. The only downside for me was that they don't have a Bistro like most other Courtyard Marriott properties. When I'm traveling,... More

Check-in process was a bit disturbing. First of all the entire lobby was extremely hot. They blamed the AC not working but I saw no one on site doing any repairs. When we went to our room for the first time we encountered someone caulking the bathroom. We had to move to another room as it needed to dry at... More

I am a national seminar presenter and was staying there to do a seminar, unfortunately my baggage did not make in time due to a missed flight. Long story short, they, at no charge to me, suppled me with a computer and projector and tons of kindness and compassion to complete the seminar. On top of this, they even went... More

I was sent to Charleston on short notice and researched hotels online the day before departing. I chose this hotel based on the online photos, which showed a more contemporary decor than other hotels in Charleston offer. Upon arrival, my first impression was that the building condition is a bit rusty and the interior felt stale -- which isn't abnormal... More

We stayed two non consecutive nights and both times had to request towels sufficient to meet the size of the registered guests. Rooms are nice and clean. The breakfast is a little pricey since its not much more than one gets for free elsewhere.
