As many others have pointed out, this hotel is under major renovations! Cannot believe this hotel would continue to take reservations while doing such major renovations! The entire lobby area, market/food area, hallway to the elevators is a complete mess. DUST everywhere, unsafe walking areas - uneven plywood to walk on to get to the elevators. Only one elevator seemed...

As others have noted, the construction is a serious problem. And, like others, we had no warning - and then no apology. But, the real issue is poor management combined with a badly designed overall layout for the hotel. Staff are poorly trained and generally unhelpful. When we finally did get our room cleaned, the housekeeper left neither towels, toilet...

Marriott didn't tell us this waterfront hotel was under serious renovation when we booked. If you are coming to Charleston, avoid this one for a couple of months until it is done (I am guessing May 2017). The smell of turpentine burned our eyes and we had to stuff towels under the door, open the windows to get to sleep....

Dear Tootallal, Thank you for choosing our hotel for your recent stay. I am sorry for the inconvenience caused due to our renovations in progress. As much as it is a dusty and noisy nuisance at the present time, the outcome will be a wonderful new place to stay in the future! We would love the opportunity for you to...

If they have information on the front page of their website that says this hotel is under major renovation, I didn't see it (but I don't think it is there.) Not only is pretty much the entire lobby/first floor torn up but so was the hallway where they issued me a room. Besides walking through plastic sheeting and clouds of...

Stayed here over the weekend. The rooms are very spacious and have great balcony views. Location makes it easy to get to all the attractions. They are currently doing construction and it starts around 07:00. I would wait until they are complete before booking. It's very loud. Other than that the hotel was very clean and staff was helpful. I...

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.

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.
