the hotel staff couldn't have been any friendlier.....Kevin the concierge had a great wealth of knowledge of the area and gave us a great game plan for getting around to all the main attractions on our own walking tour.

Giving this hotel only a 3 star due to the lack of maid service in the room. The only thing she/he did was give us fresh towels. We used the cups and the glasses in the room and they were never replaced. My husband left some crumbs on the carpet on Day 1 and by Day 3 they were still... More

I'm typically no fan of chain hotels. Words like 'sterile,' 'soulless,' and 'cookie-cutter' come to mind. So why am I four-stars worth of besotted with this Marriott? Read on and bear with me a bit until I get to the good stuff: Hotel itself was pretty standard. Our room was *clean enough,* though it didn't give me that "you can... More

Located near the town center, has adequate safe parking, friendly and helpful staff, clean modern rooms and beds and very quiet. I was particularly impressed by the breakfast facilities and personnel although you do have to pay. Be sure to tip the people who bring the food to your table and clean up after you leave. I worry that they... More

We had a great experience at the Charleston Courtyard! Although a tad dated, it is very clean! The staff was very friendly! The concierge Kevin was probably one of the best I have ever met! Menus to all the restaurants, and maps and pictures of great places to stop and take a photo. The hotel is in a great location.... More

The room was clean and nice as I would have expected from a courtyard Marriott. The lobby bar had a good selection of wine and beer and the rocking chairs out front were a wonderful touch. My room on the third floor was near the elevator and a little Noisy in the early evening, but I slept well through the... More

The staff from the front desk people to housekeeping and concierge were exceptional. Always helpful and friendly. My concern centers around the physical plant and commitment to housekeeping. This is not an inexpensive hotel and it needs updating. The room we had was worn , nicks on the walls rust spots on the baseboard and significant carpet spots. We stayed... More

My boyfriend and I wanted to escape our city for a weekend and reserved 2 nights at the Courtyard. We were absolutely blown away by the customer service we encountered. Upon arrival Lauren (?) at the front desk was incredibly pleasant and cheerful. She provided us with a map and gave us a few tips where to dine in the... More

This was our first trip to Charleston, and we chose the Courtyard Charleston Historic District because of the many positive reviews of the location and the concierge services. We can definitely add our names to the list of Kevin McQuade fans. We've stayed in great hotels all over the world, and can honestly say that we've never met a more... More
