We chose to stay at the Harbourview Inn for 3 nights during our Christmas trip to Charleston. This was our first visit to the area and we chose well. The inn is in the perfect location, with views of the harbor and fantastic restaurants and shopping all within close walking distance. If you plan to spend all of your time...

We stayed at the Harborview for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The rooms were very comfortable and adequately roomy. The free WiFi, breakfast, wine and cheese hour and lobby snacks were great amenities. We were fortunate with the weather and had our breakfast served in the roof lounge, which was delightful. The location couldn't have been better--right by...

3 wonderful nights at this beautiful hotel. Excellent service at all levels. Extremely close to many wonderful restaurants and attractions. Highlights included meals at Husk and Fleet LANDING - both with exceptional service and wonderful food. Theatre 99 is a must do - so very funny - incredibly talented and creative!

We enjoyed our stay. The room was exceptional. Love the high ceilings. The location perfect. Very quiet... and there must be a dozen good restaurants within 3 blocks. In the morning we had a nice breakfast in the hotel.

We started mid-afternoon and were treated like royalty from arrival to departure. The hotel sits within easy walking distance from many historic sites and several fantastic restaurants: McCrady's, Magnolia, Cypress,Husk, as well as fun pubs and bars.

We stayed 4 nights in late January in "newer" part of hotel. Can't beat the location and view from the lobby. Tasty breakfast (in room or atrium), and wine reception in early evening is lovely way to wind down from busy day. The all-day coffee/tea service a very nice convenience. All of the staff were most helpful/kind.

Absolutely loved our stay here. From the first the wonderful Bellman/valet who greeted us at the curb on January 12th 2017 and was generous with his knowledge of the city and the excellent reception staff we were charmed.
