Not too clean !

Great location, but the room was not very clean we saw dust on the walls requested to be cleaned...they didn't. Pricy for what you got. The included breakfast was very weak.

Charming old hotel in good location in city

Friendly, helpful staff. Older hotel with lots of character. Good location in historic district within walking distance of harbor, restaurants, city market, and historic homes. Complementary continental breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese were very good. Would stay here again.

Great Escape

Excellent location.Able to walk to all historic destinations and most restaurants. Was in town for Cooper River Bridge 10 K run. Parking in town was at a premium so having private parking at hotel was very nice. Room was cozy but very nice and very clean. Having option of having breakfast delivered to your room each morning is great and personal alternative. Hotel is tucked away privately in the city with gardens so it feels like a secret garden getaway.

Decent historic hotel for the price

One must put a review in perspective when staying at an authentic historical hotel. Room was somewhat small, but clean and nicely furnished, period decor, Our room had a good view of King Street. Hotel is nice, but could use a little renovation. Located in the heart of many interesting areas of old Charleston. Staff very friendly, Dining area nice, service good. Parking lot spaces very small, lot crowded, shared by several other hotels. Hotel guest must absorb the daily parking fee, parking pass is billed through the hotel. Overall, Hotel is a good value if you want to stay at something other than an out of the box hotel. I would stay here again.

Free trolly service to large routes throughout the town. Get a schedule of the boarding stops from the hotel. Market tourist area is adjacent to hotel. Historical area is well within walkin distances.

Grand Time in Charleston

The kings Courtyard was great. The conceirge were very friendly and helpful. The Air Conditioning was wonderful. The Bed was very comfortable and you cannot beat the location. The Hotel was right in Downtown and you can walk to many great restuarants. We would definately stay again!

Loved the setting

We enjoyed the city by walking and then taking tours. This is the most beautiful and clean city we have visited. Compliments need to be given to the city for making such a safe place to be when exploring.
