I loved everything about this hotel!!! The room was spacious and very clean, the bed very comfortable and the view from our balcony was wonderful. The outside and inside lounging areas were large, inviting, comfortable and well decorated. There was free entertainment at the outside lounging area. The staff was friendly and could not have been more helpful. It was... More

When visiting Charleston, my wife and I usually stay in downtown Charleston, but decided to try the Courtyard by Marriott Charleston Waterfront for a change. We have stayed on two separate occasions and were extremely pleased with the hotel, staff, amenities and beautiful Marina views on both visits. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, especially Eddie (the concierge) who... 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.

From the moment we arrived until check out we were treated like royalty and I never saw an employee that wasn't smiling.

We had a lovely view of the marina from our room. It was the perfect spot to spend our first night in Charleston. We were able to get acquainted with the city and the next day we moved to our vacation rental.
