Easy access to Historic District (1 mi. walk or free Trolley), College of Charleston, Ft. Sumter ferry (0.6 mi) and the Charleston Visitor Center. Hot tip: We flew into CHS and took the NASH express bus ($3) to the Visitor Center. Voila! No rental car, no parking problems. Runs hourly, schedule on the CARTA website: http://www.ridecarta.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/CARTA_NASH_Express.pdf We liked the hotel... More

The hotel is walking distance to sights and restaurants in the historic district. Rooms are good sized and comfortable, although spring prices seem high. What makes this hotel unique, though, is the outstanding concierge service offered by Kevin McQuade and his team. Kevin has developed detailed walking maps of the city showing hidden alleys and viewpoints. He booked a car... More

After spending 2 nights out in the Charleston suburbs – closer to the Plantations – we decided to spend 1 night in Charleston’s historic district at the Courtyard by Marriott. This hotel is ideally located and is an easy walk to the Main Visitor’s Center and to many of the sites within the historic district. The hotel was extremely clean... More

Highly recommended. This is the friendliest hotel I have ever stayed in, short of a B&B. Receptionists were very friendly and always helpful. The restaurant manager and the chef came around to check on how our lunch was. The location is very good, walking distance to the Battery park. Be sure to utilize concierge superb Kevin McQuade who is quick... More

Stayed two nights at this property and had a wonderful experience. The staff was friendly, and the hotel was clean and centrally located. I travel extensively and love to pre-plan everything, but after reading amazing reviews of Kevin, the concierge, I was looking forward to leaving everything to him. Kevin planned a fabulous vacation for my husband and I. We... More

During our six day stay, we received superb service from all, particularly Muriel, the bellhop, as well as the concierges, Kevin and Andrea. Everything from Kevin's private nighttime tour, to their recommendations for restaurants, beaches, and tours were spot on. Their attention to detail with special maps, directions, and menu suggestions were so helpful. We had a truly memorable Charleston... More

Hospitality comes first here. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The doorman was very helpful. Housekeeping kept everything spotless. The concierge and the front desk continually wanted to know what they could do to enhance our stay.
