Overall we really liked the hotel. Loved that the parking was easy and they have a pretty little outdoor pool. The room was nice with a larger than normal bathroom. It just felt like every time we wanted to go do something it was a 15 min or more walk to the destination. There were very few restaurants or bars... More

We booked a room at this hotel during a family visit. The location is fabulous! It is across from Francis Marion Square-which has a wonderful Saturday morning farmers market and one block from King Street. We were spending most of our time in West Ashley and this hotel is a straight shot to West Ashley. Our room was spacious and... More

This hotel and its staff met all of our expectations and needs as Marriott owners. Our room was clean and spacious, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the hotel's proximity was within close walking distance to the historical district and many restaurant and shopping venues. One of the best attributes, however, was the concierge, Kevin McQuade, and we highly... More

This hotel is located within reasonable walking distance from the historical areas and the harbor and there are many restaurants and shops located within a 15 minute walk. The staff was friendly and the room was spacious, well appointed, well lit and had the biggest bathroom we had encountered in quite a while. What really separated this property from others... More

What we look for in a hotel is a reasonable price, location, good nights rest (comfortable beds and quite atmosphere, competent friendly staff and a safe area (I understand these are subjective). We were staying in Marriott properties on this trip and we picked the Courtyard Charleston Historic District. Let me jump to the bottom-line ... would we stay there... More

I am always pleased with my Marriott experiences throughout the world.

The rooms were consistently very clean. Housekeeping was always friendly and conscientious. Minor issues with the TV were handled speedily and efficiently. This hotel was conveniently located for walking or driving downtown or the boats to Ft Sumter. A gas station is ideally situated across the street. There is easy access to the Arthur Ravenel Jr bridge for Mt Pleasant/Sullivans... More

Well I gave it another try and it just is not worth the money. The rooms are ok if u stay on the new wing. Walking down the hall there is a horrible overwhelming scent that appears to be masking something. Seriously I thought I would be sick! Then I was by myself and I had to park across the... More

We were walking distance to everything the historic district has to offer. The check-in was easy and the staff was friendly. The room was quiet large and the bed was comfortable. There is a Starbucks in the hotel (for coffee lovers) and the breakfast was good in the restaurant.
