This hotel is in a great location in the historic district, within walking distance to shopping, dining, and sightseeing. The employees are all friendly and wiling to help with anything you may need. The rooms are clean. We were there for three days and was very disappointed in the room service. The first morning of our stay the room was... More

Overall, the hotel is in a good (not the best) location and within a relatively easy walking distance to shopping, dining, and sightseeing. The hotel itself was clean but the bed and pillows were very uncomfortable and far below acceptable standards, especially for the price of the hotel. Service was excellent and especially the assistance of the concierge, Kevin McQuade.... More

Room was very nice. Great at reception, concierge was very helpful. About the only complaint was the Bistro, not very friendly and long wait for breakfast. After first morning, we found other breakfast options. Sad because every one else at this hotel was great. Also, if you park, don't expect parking after 6 pm on weekends. Walk or Uber after... More

The city is magnificent. Very charming & coZy as well. The main shopping street called King st. It is 2 minutes walking from the hotel. Also 4 minutes away from starbucks. And 9 minutes walking from the Charleston aquarium. But unfortunately No free breakfast. 18 USD for the parking.

We stayed here for a long weekend in early November and we had a wonderful time. The hotel is very nice and in a great central location. We walked everywhere. Kevin, the concierge, was a tremendous help. He arranged many things for us to do and places to eat. We highly recommend this Courtyard and highly recommend Kevin.

We came to Charleston to visit family who live only blocks away in the historic district. This property location was centralized to that and the many points of interest in this historic city.

My wife and I often use concierge services when traveling to a new city, but we’ve never had an experience with a concierge as positive as this. Kevin McQuade, a member of Les Clefs d’Or, is the best in his class. He sat and talked with us well beyond the end of his shift; he was genuinely interested in guaranteeing... More

Kevin, the all-time best concierge, helped to make this weekend getaway simply fantastic! His recommendations were on spot; his connections with local restaurants, tour sites and guided tours sent us in the perfect direction for a splendid tour of this historic city. Don't visit Charleston without visiting Kevin McQuade!!!!
