My wife and I stayed at the Harbourview this past weekend. We picked this based on tripadvisor and I muct say we loved it. The Inn was very clean, location was perfect, on the waterfront but downtown and close to everything. We were taken away by the staff, they were great. If you want to stay downtown Charleston, this is...

I stayed at the Harbor View for 3 nights in early February. The near water location is perfect with most of Charleston within an easy walk. I appreciated the very nice rooftop terrace and breakfast, wine/cheese, etc. Rooms vary but all are superior to chain hotels -- I enjoyed the french doors which overlooked a fountain. I really appreciated the...

We recently booked a short getaway in Charleston and tried the Harbourview Inn. We are very happy that we did. The location is very convenient to many shops and restaurants. It's an easy walk to the City Market. The Inn was immaculate and the free breakfast and afternoon wine & cheese receptions were nice perks. Some rooms have harbour views...

We picked the perfect weather week in January to visit Charleston for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. We searched the internet for 4 and 5 Star Hotels in the area. We selected Harbor View Inn. We were sold by the information and pictures on their website. Our stay at the Inn and visit to Charleston was perfect. The personnel at Harbor...

Took fiance down to Charleston 2/2 - 2/4 for her birthday weekend. And while I have done a good bit of traveling, staying at a number of high end places, this experience was truly exceptional. RESERVATION - I reached out to 4-5 of the high end places in Charleston, asking questions about each property as well as any possible upgrades...

As I gazed out at the building opposite my room, I realized this hotel should be called "Maybe 15% Harborview Inn" since, when looking at the facility from the outside, I'd guess that only the few rooms on the top rear overlook the water. Breakfast in the room was pleasant, always on-time. Coffee was lukewarm, though not a problem since...

We came to the Harbourview Inn to spend a couple of days in Charleston with our 2 young girls. We'd never visited Charleston before & I did a little research looking for a hotel.

Loved the personalized service with complimentary breakfast in the room, wine and cheese in the afternoon and cookies and milk before bed. Tempur-Pedic beds were a treat too. Would definitely stay there again.

Fantastic location within walking distance to top notch restaurants and more tourist type dining. The hotel serves a nice complementary breakfast to your room. It even arrives at the time you request. The room was clean and quiet. The bed was extremely comfortable. We stayed two nights and would return.
