Great location. Worth having a balcony overlooking river. Excellent secure parking. Room was a good standard, 2 comfortable queen beds....we enjoyed our stay and would recommend hotel to anyone wanting something a little bit special, but mindful of the price as there's no breakfast included.

Also a nice sitting area outside overlooking the water.A small bar downstairs ,refrigerators and microwaves in the rooms.Rooms and bathrooms are small but well layed out.Beds are comfortable and plenty of parking.

During our recent trip to Charleston, we became aware of the shortage of parking spots in the city. Staying at the Courtyard allowed us to park our car in one of their lots and explore the city by foot. We are both around 60 years old and had no problem walking to the southern tip of Charleston and back to... More

Stayed here in a corner located, King bed room. The room was lovely, the views great but the bathroom was pockey - a big minus for us. The breakfasts (not included in room rate) were good and Jerry, the server, great entertainment. The hotel is about 2 miles away from downtown: Marriot offer a shuttle service for $12 per person...

Enjoyed our stay as we were upgraded to view of marina and river for being Marriott Credit Card users. Thought it was a good bargain considering costs for some places right in Charleston Historic area. Easy access to downtown and right across bridge and river on way to Savannah. All the help without exception displayed true 'Southern Hospitality'. Hotel is... More

Very nice clean hotel. All staff was very friendly. I was in a group but had my own room. Room was on first floor with a view overlooking the pool and marina. Bed in room was comfortable. Loved the Paul Mitchell shampoo/conditioner, I used both. There is a small market to buy snacks, drinks (including beer), and any other essentials... More

The overall visit was nice, but when we returned home, I looked over my checking account and noticed there was a $40 fee. I had paid the entire fee when I made reservations. I contacted Marriott and they told me the fee was in case I had made extra charges during our stay. No one alerted us to this extra... More

We stayed here on our way south. It is a nice hotel with lovely grounds with nice decks and a pool overlooking marinas. Unfortunately it was cold and windy when we were here so we did not take advantage of the nice outdoor space. Our room was average size, very clean, with a comfortable bed and sitting area. Though breakfast... More
