We stayed at the Marriott Courtyard Charleston Waterfront as a compromise, wanting to be on the downtown peninsula but wanting to mitigate the cost of downtown hotels. The rooms are very nice and include wi-fi, a (very) mini refrigerator and microwave. There is adequate free parking. The view over the adjacent marina is terrific, but if you really want to enjoy it spring for a waterfront room. We had a city view which was not particularly nice. What I did not expect was that you can't really walk from this hotel to anywhere - there is nothing close by. It is a short drive into downtown and there is plenty of public parking, but you have to drive. Or pay $6/day/person to use the hotel shuttle.
The breakfast area was very nice and had a great view. Breakfast will run you about $10/person/day. I've never worked out why some Courtyards charge and some include a basic breakfast like Hampton Inns.
The hotel could use a business center. They had one desk top computer in an alcove called a "business center" but it was down. The staff allowed us to use their back office computer with printer to print boarding passes for our departure.
To have dinner you need to make your way downtown, or cross a bridge in either direction to find restaurants.
