When my wife and I decided to take a weekend getaway to Charleston, I started researching hotels based on the criteria I usually do: LOCATION, QUALITY, and PRICE. We are not “high rollers” – we need a good deal as much as anyone, but we also know it’s worth a few extra dollars to stay in a high quality hotel...

Outstanding location close to everything in the historic Charleston. Kevin, their concierge, had knowledge that we could have never found on the internet. He made our trip both amazing and memorable and we are looking forward to returning to see and learn more. Kevin is the best and we thank him so much for showing us an amazing time. Don't...

Last year, my boyfriend and I visited Charlestown for the first time. We did a ton of research and gathered recommendations on the must-dos while in town. While in our hotel room, we saw a sign insisting we chat with the concierge, and feeling spontaneous we did! To this day, Nick and I still talk about Kevin and all of...

Stay here whenever we are in Charleston. Very nice, reasonable accommodations. Has a concierge that is very knowledgeable and helpful. A real plus! Located close to good sights and restaurants. Make sure you have a reservation as it often fills up based on its location

I reached out to the concierge, Andrea, a week before our stay. She was excellent! She booked a walking tour for our first day. This made it easier for us to get around the city the rest of our stay. She also gave us valuable information regarding the best places to eat, the different plantations to visit and other local...

The hotel was very nice, sort of in the middle of lots, but a 10 minute walk anywhere. People were very nice, and the concierge gave us some great ideas. Right across from the AME church. 10 minute walk to Market Street. Only a block from all the action on King Street, but not the part of King street that...

I normally view the Courtyard brand as a more economy version of the Marriott label. While the appointments here may be a bit less fancy than the Ritz, the service, from the bellman, to the desk staff to the concierge, was impeccable and equal in every way to the finest hotels. I cannot imagine staying anywhere else on my next...

If you visit the Courtyard Historic and don't visit the concierge Kevin M., you've wasted your time. Sorry, that's incorrect. If you don't visit Kevin, you've wasted your life in general. Kevin created the perfect weekend for us, complete with amazing restaurant reservations, kayak trips, cemetery walks, and he even took us on a wonderful private walk. Anyone going to...

Great location in the historic district of Charleston! Short walks to many of the city's great restaurants. I had never stayed at a Courtyard Marriott before, as a platinum elite Marriott, I was underwhelmed by the hotel itself and its amenities. I chose based on location. The hotel is very clean, has attentive and courteous staff. I would have been...

We were pleasantly surprised with the high quality of all aspects of this hotel. From the moment we arrived, the service at reception was warm and helpful, and our room was spacious with a large shower and vanity area. The 2 room suite with a balcony is worth the extra cost, as it's on the top floor and very quiet....
