Stayed in 4th floor King Room for a week: spacious, quiet, well-serviced and comfortable. Complimentary cocktail Punch was refreshing. Afternoon wine tasting with cheese and fruit was nice, as was the 24 hour coffee/tea service in the atrium. Room Service staff (Breakfast only) and House Staff were attentive, polite, helpful and always pleasant. Valet parking was easy. Convenient to walk...

My husband and I were able to get away for 3 nights last week and booked our stay at Harbourview Inn. You never know what you are going to get when you book online. But I must say, this was the best - for both of us. Such a wonderful place and very well appointed, but not stuffy like some...

We had the best time for a girl's trip (seniors) staying at the Harbour View Inn. The rooms, amenities were excellent and the staff the best. The location was great near the Waterfront Park for an evening stroll. I'm usually guilty of reading reviews but never placing my own, but felt I needed to do so because our stay was...

Excellent hotel. Best location. Professional service. We enjoyed the breakfast which they deliver to where you request. Plus the wine and lite hors d'oeuvre in the afternoon were enjoyable. You can grab your wine and snacks and go up to the roof bar for some live music, sun and a fully functional bar. The room was spacious. I liked the...

Best location in Charleston; right on the water and walkable to historic sites, business, shopping and great restaurants. Breakfast in your room, the atrium or rooftop patio. And it was great. Staff was awesome, courteous, helpful, friendly. We'll be back!

For $350+ a night we definitely came away feeling a bit taken. The room was a Harbor King which was nice but I felt that the furnishings and overall feel of the hotel were not befitting of the price. The view itself was ok, but nothing special, however the location was nice to be able to reach most of everything...

My dad and I stayed here in one of their harbor view queen rooms. The room was large, with high ceilings, and a huge window with French doors you could open up and let the breeze in. The hotel is walking distance to almost anything you could want to do in downtown Charleston. The staff was really nice. My dad...
