Courtyard Charleston Waterfront Rating: 3.0 Pearls
Charleston, South Carolina, United States

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Little within walking distance
  • Generic decor
  • Location right off the highway means some traffic noise
  • Restaurant only serves breakfast
  • No pets allowed

Bottom Line

The 179-room Courtyard Charleston Waterfront is located on the Ashley Marina, right off the highway and next to the Medical University of South Carolina. Very little is within walking distance, and the contemporary room decor is pretty standard for a mid-range chain. But all rooms come equipped with microwaves and mini-fridges, and the waterfront pool with landscaped patio and marina views is a highlight.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

The hotels is just off the highway and looks out over a marina

The Courtyard Charleston Waterfront looks out over the Ashley Marina, and is just off Highway 30. The hotel is a short drive to many of Charleston's popular attractions, including Downtown Charleston, the historic district, and the College of Charleston. It's right next to the Medical University of South Carolina, and less than a 10-minute drive from the College of Charleston and the Citadel Military College of South Carolina, so it's convenient for travelers attending conferences and parents visiting their college-aged children.

Charleston's historic district is home to beautiful houses, gardens, and numerous restaurants and museums. Many buildings here are in the Greek Revival style. Other architectural attractions include the lovely plantations in the area.

  • 17-minute drive from Charleston International Airport
  • 15-minute walk to the Medical University of South Carolina
  • 4-minute drive to downtown Charleston
  • 5-minute drive to the historic district
  • 5-minute drive to the College of Charleston
  • 7-minute drive to the South Carolina Aquarium
  • 7-minute drive to the Citadel, rich with military history
  • 20-minute drive to Folly Beach
  • 20-minute drive to Fort Sumter, where the first shots of the American Revolution were fired

 Bottom Line

The 179-room Courtyard Charleston Waterfront is located on the Ashley Marina, right off the highway and next to the Medical University of South Carolina. Very little is within walking distance, and the contemporary room decor is pretty standard for a mid-range chain.
