I loved everything about this hotel from the location to the big comfy rooms to the m&ms in the lobby. But most of all it was the staff. We were greeted so warmly and kindly by the front desk staff (I wish I wrote all of their names down but really every single person we encountered was top notch). They...

Made a detour / one night in Charleston on the way home from a business trip. This place was ideal - close to the waterfront. We happened there in mid January in perfect weather. City and hotel was probably less busy and our time was quiet. Staff was great. Breakfast provided with your stay and delivered to your room or...

We stayed for two nights for my wife's birthday. This hotel is our absolute favorite out of all the places we've stayed in the world. We had a king Harbourview room which is literally right in front of the fountain at Waterfront Park. This is the only place we've stayed where we sleep better there than we do at home....

The Harbourview Inn was a great place to stay in a place I visit often. The room and bathroom are nice and well appointed, although they are showing a little wear and could use some freshening. Great comfy bed and love the non stop breakfast and then snacks throughout the day. The service was great. This hotel is in a...
