KING'S COURTYARD INN
198 King Street
Charleston, NC 29401
Here you inhabit a slice of Charleston's history. The 3-story building of the Inn was built in 1853 in Greek Revival Style with unusual Egyptian detail. The adjoining building dates to the 1830's and still has the original heartpine floors and plaster ceilings.
The Inn has served a variety of functions over the years, now offering a selection of rooms around two inner courtyards and a rear garden. Extreme care has been taken to ensure the necessary architectural and historic accuracy for which Charleston is famous, maintaining the residential atmosphere of lower King Street. Rooms are furnished in 18th-century reproduction furniture, with large windows, high ceilings, and oriental rugs over hardwood floors. In one suite the original 1830's living room maintains the ornate plaster ceiling moldings and the original fireplace.
From the moment you arrive you realize comfort and service are of primary importance to the staff of the King's Courtyard. The gracious surroundings are a pleasant respite for an afternoon cocktail in the courtyard bar.
The Inn is within easy walking distance of Charleston's historic homes, gardens, churches, and the City Market area. Explore one interesting shop after another, barter for the unusual in the open market, or enjoy a delicious meal at one of the many delightful restaurants. King Street is a center for the antique trade, and the Inn is literally surrounded by shops filled with fine collectibles.
Business travelers can take advantage of the services at the Inn. And there is an elegantly restored room with original tin ceiling available for small meetings or receptions. This is an elegant, time-stopping treat in old Charleston.
