Location is OK (easy access). The view of the water was nice, as was the pool area with sitting areas and fire pit. The room was a little cramped with a chair squeezed between the bed and window wall. , parking was terrible, the construction looked shoddy with crooked walls, gaps filled with calk, uneven floors, and soft spots in...

Front desk staff accommodated by a bottle off wine from the market and getting us a couple of glasses from the bar. A very nice fix. View is great and everything is clean and put together well.

The hotel and staff were extremely friendly. Very clean despite the fact there is construction next door for a Hilton. Will definitely come back here. Even though we had our own car, we found ourselves taking taxis....$4 a head...into town.

The cab ride into town was about $8-$10. The hotel has a shuttle that is $6 per person. The travel costs really added up since this was a romantic weekend and i wanted to wear heels at night. For most people this is not walking distance and even if were; it's an ugly, busy road for a walk. There are... More

We didn't mind being separated from the downtown ad will choose this hotel again. We love Courtyards. Although this hotel has a shuttle and although it is within a 5 minute car drive, there is something about being out of the mix of the downtown, when in Charleston.
