Our stay at Harbourview was exceptional in every respect. Accommodation quality was overboard and their staff truly represent Southern hospitality at it's best. Ideally located on the waterfront with a Free transit stop at their door. Breakfast is a gourmet feast, afternoon wine & cheese, then evening coffee & milk....what's not to enjoy! Without hesitation or question we would return...

Excellent stay! Great location. True southern hospitality at its finest. All associates I encountered were welcoming and very informed. The rooms were very clean, looks like new bathrooms. Beds so comfortable, I wish I had time to sleep another 5 hours in them! Great place.

The Harbourview Inn is a wonderful place to stay in Charleston! Its location near the water is so pretty. The entire staff is extraordinarily gracious - they epitomize southern hospitality. We had to make a few tweaks to our stay and each ask was so graciously accommodated and always with a warm smile. The rooms were lovely - well apportioned,...

I loved everything about this hotel from the location to the big comfy rooms to the m&ms in the lobby. But most of all it was the staff. We were greeted so warmly and kindly by the front desk staff (I wish I wrote all of their names down but really every single person we encountered was top notch). They...

Made a detour / one night in Charleston on the way home from a business trip. This place was ideal - close to the waterfront. We happened there in mid January in perfect weather. City and hotel was probably less busy and our time was quiet. Staff was great. Breakfast provided with your stay and delivered to your room or...

We stayed for two nights for my wife's birthday. This hotel is our absolute favorite out of all the places we've stayed in the world. We had a king Harbourview room which is literally right in front of the fountain at Waterfront Park. This is the only place we've stayed where we sleep better there than we do at home....
