We were passing through Charleston on the way home from a vacation on Kiawah Island and stayed one night at the Harbourview Inn. What a lovely place! The staff was very welcoming and attentive. They offer fresh iced tea all day, wine and cheese every evening, and even have milk and cookies at bed time! We had a room in...

When we are in Charleston, this is the ONLY place we stay. It's an elegant, yet comfortable, property. It's smaller than some of the higher-end hotels in Charleston, which makes for a more intimate and less-busy setting. The location next to the public park is ideal for walks in the morning or evening (if you have children, they'll want to...

My husband and I recently had a one night stay here. The staff was very friendly, and very quickly resolved a mix up with our room rate. The breakfast delivered to our room was great - delicious pastries! Location is excellent, easy walking distance to historic district attractions. We loved that we could see the harbor from our room, though...

We originally picked this hotel for its price and location. But were pleasantly surprised at what more it had to offer.

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The staff was helpful, friendly, and accommodating.

A lovely hotel in the incredible city of Charleston.

We've been going to Charleston for 7 years and tried a few hotels (French Quarter and Charleston Place), but somehow we always end up back at Harborview. It's a charming hotel with extremely customer service focused staff. The location can't be beat and the rooms are terrific. The corner rooms overlooking the fountain are my favorites, but the "historic" rooms...

The waterfront and atrium lobbies are reminiscent of Charleston's early years as a colonial nautical trading hub. They offer the perfect setting for idle reflection, a glass of wine or just the refined sport of people watching. ... more   less
