Great spot although I am usually Leary of small inns. Our 2nd time here,will keep coming back. Close to market street, great shopping on king street. Historical buildings are incredible. Our room was a suite with a fireplace (gas) and high ceilings. It is close to many great restaurants and a wine bar.

What a treat for us to stay at the Kings Courtyard Inn for our anniversary! Our room was outstanding! It was decorated beautifully and we enjoyed a fire each evening in the fireplace. The complimentary wine and cheese tasting each night was enjoyable after a day of walking throughout Historic Charleston. The location is perfect, as you can walk to... More

This is a nice boutique hotel, located on the southern part of King Street. We walked everywhere--nearby shopping, restaurants and bars, and historic venues. You just can't get much more convenient than this. In the off season, rates were $205 for our canopied queen bed room with a gas fireplace. Not a huge room, but lovely and certainly sufficient for...

We decided to spend Christmas in Charleston and relied as always on our favorite hotel, Kings Courtyard Inn, in the heart of downtown. This little hotel group is a well kept secret steps away from great restaurants but very quiet facing a courtyard rather than the street. The rooms are attractive, comfortable and always very clean, and the staff was... More

The location is perfect, right in the historic district and a short walk to shops, restaurants and the city market. The hotel is charming with a real southern feel. Breakfast can be brought to your bed and breakfast style room or enjoyed with other guests. There is a complementery wine and cheese happy hour and a fine bottle of cream... More

Great location, helpful staff, loved the fireplace and to be able to get the complimentary (and delicious) breakfast in the room. Everyone was friendly. Also loved the complimentary wine and treats in the evening. Staying here and visiting King St and the farmers market put us in the holiday mood.

Kings Courtyard has a great location on antique row (museum grade furniture with price tags), across the street from free shuttle stop, parks, shopping, restaurants, sights all within walking distance. Friendly, knowledgeable, helpful staff, like family in a positive sense. Spotless, spacious room with 18thC English repro furniture, for example, 4 poster lace canopied bed, bright and overlooking King Street.... More
