When visiting Charleston, my wife and I usually stay in downtown Charleston, but decided to try the Courtyard by Marriott Charleston Waterfront for a change. We have stayed on two separate occasions and were extremely pleased with the hotel, staff, amenities and beautiful Marina views on both visits. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, especially Eddie (the concierge) who...

We stayed two non consecutive nights and both times had to request towels sufficient to meet the size of the registered guests. Rooms are nice and clean. The breakfast is a little pricey since its not much more than one gets for free elsewhere.

From the moment we arrived until check out we were treated like royalty and I never saw an employee that wasn't smiling.
