We loved our night in this picturesque and centrally located hotel. The room and bed were superbly comfortable. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The rooftop breakfast was tasty and a fun location. The hotel is ideally situated for exploring Charleston. For an evening treat check out the bench swings on the pier opposite the hotel; views out over...

We stay at the Harbourview every time we visit Charleston. The location is convenient, the rooms and amenities are outstanding, and the view from the rooftop terrace is spectacular! But, the best attribute of the Harborview is the staff! Every staff member is polite and is dedicated to providing great customer service. The front desk staff is always very helpful...

Our stay at the Harbourview Inn turned out to be very nice. With that said it was not what we expected which is my own oversight. At a quick glance the website, reviews, and price give the impression that it is more upscale than it really is with some nice marketing. At check in we were given a room that...
