GREENVILLE, SC - December 7, 2004- The Courtyard by Marriott Charleston Downtown/Riverview has been purchased by JHM Hotels of Greenville, SC.  With 179 rooms and nearly 2,000 square feet of meeting space, the hotel is perfectly positioned to meet the needs of both business and leisure travelers who want to be located close to Charleston’s Historic District.  The hotel is located on the banks of the Ashley River adjacent to the Ashley Marina and across the street from the Medical University of South Carolina complex.  Originally opened in September 1997, the hotel is currently managed by Marriott International.  This acquisition adds to the JHM portfolio in Charleston.  In October 2003, the company purchased the Charleston Riverview Hotel that is slated to be converted to a Marriott by the 1st Quarter of 2006 following extensive renovations.  With control of 521 rooms on the Charleston peninsula, JHM Hotels becomes the largest room inventory holder in the market.
