Came to this hotel at the last minute after a visit to another hotel prompted the family and I to run for shelter elsewhere. Positives: Marina views are wonderful. The hotel is well kept. Staff is accommodating and courteous. They really work to give you a nice stay. Negatives: The hotel is beginning to wear to a noticeable extent. We... More

I spoke to a very pleasant receptionist by phone from the NY airport asking to verify my reservation for later that day. Rachel confirmed and when I asked if it was possible to secure a water-view room, Rachel said as a Marriott Elite member I would be upgraded and there should be no problem upon arrival. I reiterated we would... More

On the riverbank and worth the extra $ for a room with good views of pool and river. Has a boardwalk on property. Nice pool and area for breakfast on patio but it was too cold to sit outside when we visited. Rooms are standard Marriott - clean and functional. Good breakfast with very friendly, helpful servers. My overall hotel... More

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.

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
