My husband and I stayed at the Harbourview Inn on the recommendation of a friend and were not disappointed. We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed the little things like the turn down service, mid afternoon wine and cheese and the breakfast service which had 3 locations for delivery. We opted for our room and it was a treat!(Had the weather...

We stayed here four nights and were very pleased with the service, our large room, wonderful staff. A nice breakfast is included and is brought to your room, The location is terrific, located right on the free trolley line and next to the waterfront park. It's also easy to walk to many good restaurants and attractions. Good value.

First time to Charleston, so we opted to stay near the tip to be able to walk to the many attractions. This hotel, located at the corner of Vendue Range and Concord St. was perfect for that. Get over the sticker shock for the cost of the room, and then focus on the benefits of being able to walk to...

We took advantage of a Trip Advisor discount to stay here 3 nights... the offer discounted the room to $231 for two of the nights -- the rate was $319 for the third night. The room we had was initially a disappointment... we had a view of what seemed to be their electrical plant with some palmettos around it (in...

This hotel would be above average on its own, but the amenities offered go above & beyond. Afternoon wine & cheese, tea & coffee all day, cookies & milk in evening, breakfast delivered to room ( our favorite ) each morning. Convenient location to all areas in historic Charleston- close to numerous restaurants and shopping - plus right on waterfront...

Stayed there during our recent six-day visit to Charleston. Our room was excellent, with ample space and large bath. The continental breakfasts were simple, but well done. Nightly complimentary wine and cheese receptions and the free M&Ms in the lobby were nice touches. The service was generally very good. Our only complaint was the bell staff seemed young and inexperienced....

We loved the Harbourview Inn in Charleston, SC. I travel frequently for business, so I am quite particular about the hotels I chose. The staff as well as their service was fantastic. Very friendly and accommodating. We were celebrating a birthday, and they sent up a complimentary bottle of Champagne. The hotel was beautiful. It was clean (spotless) and welcoming....

I'll preface this review by saying that this is easily one of the more expensive hotels we've stayed in thus far; but my husband and I were celebrating our anniversary in Charleston and decided it was worth the splurge. I don't regret it one bit! The service was excellent; everyone was very friendly and accommodating. The room itself (303) was...

We stayed at the Harbourview Inn with another couple over a beautiful spring weekend. We thought the hotel to be pricey, but discovered it was because we had a corner room with the Harbour view. Even so, i would consider it pretty expensive. I laughed when I read that other customers hated the beds...they are orthopedic beds...we made the joke...

We were very disappointed. We expected much better for the price. Our room was small with bathroom right next to one of our queen beds. The beds were awful (very uncomfortable).
