Perfect location without a car. Walked to everything. Restaurants etc. Thought the staff was wonderful, helpful, and kind. You come out of hotel hang a left and then the decision. Should I go right for restaurants and bars or should I go left for shopping.

The Courtyard Charleston was our home base for a last minute trip to Charleston over the holidays. I was pleasantly surprised at how charming the hotel felt. We arrived a bit early for check in and the front desk was super-accommodating and secured us a room for early check in. The room was nicely appointed and in good condition. The...

WOW, WOW, WOW!!! What an amazing place to stay for my first time to Charleston. Not only is the hotel centrally located, but the staff here is exceptional! While I was in town for business for the week, I did have a day of down time that I wanted to use to experience the city. Lucky for me - I...

Modern amenities with a traditional historical style located in the heart of Charleston and walking distance from fine dining and lots of shopping. Has a small but nice work out facility, coffee bar and restaurant. Underground parking garage and some balcony rooms. Price is reasonable and we stay there now on every visit!

Very pleased with the hotel. Staff was very friendly and eager to please. Kevin, the concierge, was fantastic! He was very knowledgeable and quickly understood what we were looking for, especially with restaurants! All of his suggestions were great! The walking tour he scheduled for us also was fantastic. He truly went above and beyond to make our anniversary weekend...

My girlfriends and I had the best weekend! The hotel was in a great location in walking distance to many restaurants, shops and bars. The room was adequate and could use an upgrade but it suited are needs. When we first arrived our AC wasn't working but it only took a quick phone call to the front desk to have...

Pleasant hotel. Parking is not valet but is a mandatory $18 per day. Nothing is complimentary in this hotel except concierge service. The concierge service is impressive. Walking distance is .5-.7miles one way to the most popular destinations. Rooms are average. My view was a rooftop with a sliver view of the city.

The location is terrific - walking distance to multiple amazing restaurants (and the Cupcake), the aquarium and Ft Sumter departure area. Hotel was so, so. Odd to say but mattresses very noisy - not sure if it was the bed itself, but both queen beds creaked a LOT. A little disappointed that breakfast is a al carte at the Bistro...
