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.

My wife and I have visited Charleston SC on 4 different occasions over the last 30 years and have stayed in a different "delux" hotel each visit. While all were nice, the Harbourview Inn was by far our nicest experience. After hours of driving, our first human contact with the hotel staff was the bellman/valet named Sterling. He could not...

Comfortable, traditionally furnished room. Lobby has a comfortable sitting area, which is delightful for relaxing after a long walk. Complimentary iced tea, coffee, and fruit-flavored water provided, as are wine and cheese in late afternoon and milk and cookies in the evening. Included breakfast selection is limited, but makes for a decent start to the day. Helpful front desk.
