“WOW!!”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

My daughters and I spent two nights during Spring Break from school at Harbourview in one of the harbour view rooms. The room was great. We especially liked opening our french doors and enjoying the view and breeze from the harbour each morning and late afternoon. The room was spacious and very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is PERFECT!! We had a fabulous time!!! We are looking forward to our next visit to Charleston and staying at Harbourview Inn!

We had the pleasure of staying at the Harbourview Inn recently, and had a wonderful time. The location is perfect...right on the harbor, off East Bay Street, and just steps from the city market. We loved our room in the historic section, it was spacious, clean and well maintained. From the bellman to guest services to housekeeping, the management of the Harbourview Inn has got it right. One of the highlights of our visit was watching a cruise ship depart from the roof of the Inn. Thank you for a fabulous stay, we can't wait to return!

The location is great -- small but comfortable lobby with a view of the waterfront park and harbor -- but the real selling point of the Harbourview is the outstanding service. Our needs (for the room, for concierge-type services) were not only met but anticipated; free snacks and meals were delicious and plentiful; the desk personnel were solicitious and helpful at all times. I'd go back to Charleston just for the pleasure of staying here again.

My husband and I stayed two nights for a romantic get away. We had a penthouse room with the fireplace and view of the river. If I could find anything negative at all about the place is that the room was a little small. We had to move a chair to open the balcony doors and we heard a weird ringing sound every once in a while. Other than that the staff was exceptional. We never once ran into anyone who didn't greet us with a smile. The bell staff was helpful and you just felt like they would bend over backwards to meet your needs. Within walking distance to just about everything. The breakfast was really nice. You choose what you want and when you want it. They call you when it is on its way and then they pick it up later. Very convenient! They had flavored water and m&m's in the lobby and coffee anytime and wine and cheese and cookies!

As my husband is from Charleston, we have stayed at a number of hotels in the city and Mt. Pleasant. The Harbourview Inn was one of the best experiences we have ever had! The room overlooking the park and harbor was lovely and the tranquility only briefly interrupted by the necessary activities of a busy city. The hotel staff was efficient and gracious, ensuring that our stay met the standards of their excellent reputation!

My husband and I stayed at the Harborview Inn for three days. The location was perfect! It was within walking distance to great restaurants, museums and shopping. The staff was wonderful especially the valets who were a wealth of information on all info. needed and freely offered their help. The complimentary breakfast served in your room or on terrace(with a lovely view) was a great way to start the day. After a day of touring, the wine and cheese were a welcomed treat. The 4th floor was a perfect location, very quiet and close to the terrace. We found the beds to be extremely comfortable after a busy day. The riverside park outside the inn offers a lovely retreat to enjoy views and a quiet walk. So much to see and do, I know we will be back and will stay at the Harborview again.
