This hotel was wonderful. From the complimentary breakfast in your room to the milk and cookies offered at night. When I couldn't get a reservation at the restaurant I wanted, they offered me a different restaurant and it was marvelous!

Me and a friend visited Charleston for the first time for a girl's weekend. We couldn't have had a better hotel. It is in prime location to the best food, view of the harbor, a pier, the city market, and all things Charleston. We arrived early and parked at the hotel our room wasn't ready, so we went walking around....

We stayed here last year and were blown away by the location and level of service. We needed a single night stay over on our return from a cruise this year. We had another hotel set up, but we were very disappointed on our way down and changed over to Harbourview. So glad we did. They are the best hotel...

Honestly...we landed here because a number of other places where booked which made this an even more pleasant surprise. We stayed in the historic wing and the room was spacious and beautiful. All the little touches were so appreciated like big, soft bath towels and super comfortable beds and linens. And please don't skip over the welcome cocktail which was...

Just returned from a 5 night stay at The Harbourview Inn. From start to finish it was a great experience. We had requested an early check-in and the hotel honored it when we arrived in Charleston. We were able to get into our room, change into clothing that matched the beautiful warm weather. The hotel is located across the street...

Loved every minute we were there! From the minute we arrived the staff could not have been more accommodating. It is right in the heart of the downtown are. The only thing better was the view. I would highly recommend the HarborView Inn.

My husband and I booked Harbourview Inn for a few nights at the end of March. It was perfect! The location was better than I expected. It was less than 2 blocks from all of the action, yet right across a quiet street from a park overlooking the water. The staff was outstanding! They have a free wine/cheese reception in...

My wife and I have stayed in several of the high end hotels in Charleston and the Harbourview is our favorite. Great location, very nice rooms and staff like Mack the night auditor (who got me fresh coffee at 4:30 am while I was catching up on some work) make this a great place to stay.

The hotel is an easy walk to restaurants and shopping. I had a nice view of the fountain. The decor is traditional and the bed is comfortable. There is a terrific complementary breakfast, wine and cheese in the evening and milk and cookies at night in a lovely upstairs lobby. The staff was friendly and very helpful.
