Beautiful hotel next to the harbor promenade, within walking distance to the historic centre, great restaurants, market street, etc. Breakfast, that you get to choose from the menu in you room, is served at the requested time, on a roof top with city views, in a dining room, or in your room. There is wine and cheese in the afternoon,...

What a delightful stay at the Harbourview Inn. The location was perfect for visiting the old market, the waterfront walk, the Southern house tours and of course, the fabulous French Quarter restaurants. We walked everywhere, including to the Aquarium, though the free shuttle bus stop is adjacent to the hotel entrance. The room was nicely appointed and the in-room breakfast...

We arrived to the hotel around 10:00pm and got a warm reception and quick check-in. The clerk on duty took time to answer our questions and recommended three restaurants in the area. We tried two of them and both are great choices. Our room had two queen beds and a large bathroom with both tub and shower. There were a...

My bottom line is that, even considering that downtown Charleston is in high demand in Spring, this hotel is not worth the about $360 a night I paid for a room with harbor view. The "harbor" location is not a plus because in Charleston there is hardly anything on the water; historic Charleston's center is more or less the corner...

Located in a great location in the heart of historic Charleston. Close to a number of super restaurants and within easy walking distance of all of the major downtown sights. We had a room on the 4th floor with somewhat of a view of the harbor and a nice view of the park fountain. The Port Authority building blocks a...

This charming boutique hotel is centrally located on the waterfront right across from the Pineapple Water Fountain and pier and within walking distance of everything you would want to do in Charleston. It takes Southern Hospitality to the max. From the moment you drop your car off at the Valet parking, the service is impeccable and very friendly-front desk, check-in,...

The hotel was excellent from all perspectives: valet, front desk, bell hop, bartender on the roof deck, wine and cheese reception, room service delivered in the morning, and the room itself. Very much worth the money. Would like to thank the staff for their selection of music when turning the beds, very nice !!! Can't go wrong with this hotel.
