We enjoyed our stay at Kings Courtyard Inn. The inn and rooms are beautiful. Breakfast was delicious. The staff is excellent - very friendly and helpful. They were able to answer all questions and make recommendations on restaurants to try and sites to visit. Can't wait to visit again!

I stayed there with a friend during Spoleto festival 2014 - we wanted separate rooms but adjoining so their 2-room suite was ideal. Parking is reasonable and available and right outside the door. Breakfast is included and can be delivered to the room if you wish. All the room details were great - we each had a separate bathroom, there was comfortable seating for reading with plenty of lamps. Decor was old-fashioned Charleston style. Minor issues: the a/c in my room blew directly on the bed which made it chilly. Also had a slight hot water problem only the last day. No other complaints. They serve wine and cheese from 5-6 and sherry is available later, help yourself. Walking distance to the market and many fine restaurants in addition to several of the Spoleto venues including the Dock Street theatre. I did a ton of research to find just the right place and I would choose this one again. For 2 full rooms and baths in downtown Charleston the price was very reasonable.

My wife and I decided to take a quick trip to Charleston being our first time there we had no idea where to stay. We stumbled on the kings courtyard inn and loved it we would definitely go back. It's a little high on the rates but comparable to everything around it. The only thing we didn't like was the night time desk operator he always had his headphone's in and paid no attention to anyone that walked in and got a little upset if you asked him anything if they replaced him it would be a perfect place to stay all the way around. The rest of the staff was amazing and the rooms are very nice. They offer a complimentary cheese and wine on the weekend all in all we would definitely stay here again

This hotel is right in the middle of downtown. Perfect location to walk and see Charleston. The staff was all exceptionally friendly and helpful.
Good wine flowed freely during the Happy Hour.
The hotel is old, but kept up. Not totally modernized (remember historic)
The 2 courtyards were really pleasant places to enjoy the wine or eat breakfast.
We definitely would recommend the Kings Courtyard Inn

This is my third stay at the Kings Courtyard Inn - enjoyed it once again! Our room was huge with high ceilings and plenty of space - loved the idea of the gas fireplace, but definitely a bit warm on our stay to use it! Would love to come back in cooler weather to give it a try. We always enjoy the complimentary wine hour and breakfast. The location on King Street is just perfect and provides easy access to numerous shops, restaurants/bars, and attractions. My only small complaint for this stay was that the concierge checking in guests was assisting another guest on the phone while we stood in the lobby waiting for a good ten minutes without even acknowledging that we were there. I completely understand that you are helping someone else, but a simple, "I'll be with you in just a moment" goes a long way. Other than that, we will absolutely be staying here again and look forward to it!

We stayed 4 nights here-it was comfortable & convenient for town.
The beds were sumptuous -there's a great en suite with a small efficient fridge under the sink.
Unfortunately no kettle which after 10 hours travelling I really needed & have suggested to the staff. If you like good sturdy English tea take tea bags & ask for hot water & milk!
Breakfast is continental only - if u want cooked its at a cafe along the street but you have to pay so its not really worth it - we enjoyed the granola,pastries,peeled hardboiled(only) egg, fruit, porridge etc then had coffee later in town.

Room Tip: Roadside was fine - all quiet around 11pm even for a light sleeper. We had 215 a huge 2 double bedd...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Built in 1853, Kings Courtyard Inn is one of downtown Charleston, South Carolina's most historic inns. Architect Francis D. Lee designed the three-story antebellum structure in the Greek revival style with unusual Egyptian detail. The building is one of King Street's largest and oldest structures, and has had many uses during its 150 year existence. The building has housed high quality shops, private residences and at one time, the upper floors served as hotel rooms for plantation owners, shipping interests and merchant guests. Kings Courtyard Inn is located in the heart of Charleston's historic district. The Inn maintains the residential atmosphere of lower King Street, and extreme care has been taken to ensure the necessary architectural and historic accuracy for which Charleston is famous. Each of the rooms has an individual distinction. All rooms feature oversized beds- some have canopied beds and fireplaces. Many rooms boast excellent views of the inn's interior courtyards. All hotel guests receive complimentary sherry on arrival and a morning newspaper delivered to the room. They also receive a continental breakfast served each morning in their room, the courtyards, or in the breakfast room. Kings Courtyard Inn is within easy walking distance of Charleston's historic homes, gardens, churches and only a block away from the City Market. Here, one may explore interesting shops or enjoy a delicious meal at one of the city's many delightful restaurants. ... more   less
