Located within walking distance of the bay and King St. Shopping with plenty of nearby restaurants. Just on the edge of the crowded downtown traffic. Love the new courtyard bistro lobby we encountered a storm so found haven in lobby bistro for drinks. Parking is very limited with significant cost as expected in city hotel.

Selected this hotel for its location in historic Charleston & our favorable past experiences with Marriott...and for the reputation of its chief concierge Kevin. Expectations were exceeded!!! The hotel was conveniently located for walking to historic sites and restaurants, hotel decor was crisp & modern, room was comfortably appointed, staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. But the most amazing experience... More

Clean room with awesome balcony view. Bed was super comfortable and would definitely stay there again. Hotel is downtown Charleston right in the middle of it all. Friendly staff and overall a great experience! The location and the price point make this hotel a no brainer if your looking for a hotel in downtown Charleston.

Service: Flawless Ambiance: Unrivaled Location: Any more in the center of things and you'd be sitting on top of the statue of Frank Marion - Andre the Giant looks on this spot with jealous eyes.

First off, the reason why I picked this hotel was because of all the rave reviews regarding the concierge, Kevin. He did not disappoint! I called him a few weeks before our arrival to get his opinion on things my husband and I should do while in Charleston. He actually set up a conference call with both my husband and... More

My parents and I stayed here on our recent trip to Charleston. I would have preferred to stay at a different hotel but my mom said she really liked staying at Courtyard Marriots so I went ahead and booked this hotel through Orbitz. We were under the impression that our room was going to be larger than it was and... More

Dear Angela H, Thank you for offering us feedback on your recent trip from California. You are correct in that we do not offer our suites for a discounted price through Orbitz. Our suites are available online through Marriott.com or by calling the hotel directly at 843-805-7900. We do offer our normal room types through the Orbitz website at a... More

I recently had the pleasure of staying 3 nights at the Courtyard Marriott in Downtown Charleston, and I must say that it was one of the best hotel experiences I’ve ever had. The hotel staff could not have been friendlier; catering to our every need, including a somewhat late request for extra pillows! Everyone from the front desk staff, to... More

The service at this hotel is 5 star. The staff from front desk to housekeeping was amazing. The best is the concierge who knows every nook and cranny of Charleston. If you have a question, he can answer it. It was a safe, reasonable walk to S. Market and the battery. We also used bike taxis and regular taxis a... More

As soon as you check in go see Kevin. He is really wonderful. He set us up to go on a walking tour with emphasis on architecture and history by a man named Ed Macy. He was really good, very interesting to listen to, very knowledgeable and he engaged my 13 year old boys too. Every restaurant he advised us... More

I'm a Marriott member but this property did not hold to the standards and for the rate they charged for a very small room that believe me was not in any historic district. The staff was nice but it wasn't enough. The elevator was out so that didn't help matters. I can't recommend this property unless you are getting a... More

Dear Jan G, Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on your recent stay with us from Tennessee.

Waiting for an elevator is the last thing... More
