This was our third stay as well as I hosted a small business here a few years and used a private club around the corner to have our meeting, just a great venue for a small meeting. Daily in-room breakfast is great, great choices and...

Lovely old/historic hotel, conveniently located almost in the middle of downtown, close to a lot of restaurants/attractions or a short walk/drive to everything. My family enjoyed our stay here and would stay here again.

Came here for one night, visiting the beautiful Charleston. The hotel is great! Perfect location and atmosphere. The bed is very comfortable, and the room big and clean. We asked for breakfast on the roof, and enjoyed it very much.

This hotel is the size that provides privacy and rest while still affording opportunities to mingle with other travelers at wine and cheese or rooftop events. The staff was absolutely incredible at every encounter and they remembered me as I did them. Bicycles were a nice touch and the location could not have been better!

Our stay at Harbourview was exceptional in every respect. Accommodation quality was overboard and their staff truly represent Southern hospitality at it's best. Ideally located on the waterfront with a Free transit stop at their door. Breakfast is a gourmet feast, afternoon wine & cheese, then evening coffee & milk....what's not to enjoy! Without hesitation or question we would return...
