Booking on line has the great disadvantage of not knowing that the hotel of choice is under construction . This hotel is in a great location, overlooking a lovely marina and the river. However, that did not compensate for trying to park in what seemed like a minefield of construction, with no signage to indicate how to get to reception....

There was quite a bit of construction on the first floor near our room, and it consistently woke us up each morning - if not the actual construction, then it was the workers in the hallway. Our room was average, clean, and comfortable. We had a city view, which was actually a view of the parking lot and noisy road...

We flew into Charleston for a wedding. The location of the Courtyard is great. Our room looked out over the river and marina. It was a short ride to the historic district, the hotel provided a shuttle. The room was large and comfortable. The staff were all amazingly helpful, whatever we needed they were there to make sure our needs...

Stayed one night and never again until construction is complete. Construction started at 0720 on a Saturday morning. Parking lot underneath is a mess with old furniture. Staff was outstanding! They were super friendly and helpful. Location is good near downtown but not with the hassle of parking or one way streets. Overall will stay again AFTER complete.

Looking at a map, one could get the impression that this was within walking distance of King Street and historic Charleston. Well, that's not really true - it's not that far, but both due to highway configurations and the kinds of neighborhoods in between, this is a drive to downtown. The room was perfectly adequate, with a suitable number of...

Overpriced, old, far from Historic district, building works. Spent one night in a family room. Building work is very disruptive (starts at 8) and limited parking due to building trucks. Walls are paper thin and despite being Elite Silver, our "quiet" room was near the lifts and with noisy neighbours and big foot upstairs walking until 3am. One minor compensation...

We were here for a family Wedding in August.
