Wonderful hotel; great location, great staff, clean, and excellent breakfast. What more can you ask for? We can recommend to start your day with breakfast served on the rooftop terrace. The hotel is located within walking distance for the majority of activities and sights as well as restaurants. Check out the ice cream store next door, which is a great way to end the day.

Service was wonderful,every staff member we ran into was friendly and helpful.Lots of extras here,wine and cheese, milk and cookies and breakfast in your room or rooftop which was our favorite. Some high end hotels can be "stuffy" this one was was certainly not. Location is very close to the park and fountain. They made all of out dinner reservations with suggestions on just about everything.Great experience!

It doesn't get much better than this! Thee Hotel was beautiful. The staff did everything they could to make our stay GREAT! Lisa and Betsy at the Front Desk gave us cold bottles of water, they helped with Restaurant picks and made reservations for us, and sent up a bottle of Champagne for my Husband's birthday which we were celebrating. The hotel offers a great choice of breakfast rooftop, guest lobby, or in your room. Wine and cheese were offered everyday as well as milk and warm cookies before Bed. Jack was so helpful as our Valet, and we used the local Bike Taxis on occasion that picked us up at the Hotel.
We would DEFINITELY stay here again, the location is perfect for Charleston and our room had a spectacular view of the Charleston Harbour. Thanks to all at Harbourview Inn, you made our trip one to remember!

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room by the Harbour, worth a little more!

Complimentary wine & cheese, milk & cookies, M & M's. Had a great time! The best thing to add is when the group of 6 of us got stuck in a downpour of rain that flooded the streets, I called the hotel to see if they could pick us up in our mini van. The assistant manager Drew came & rescued us. Our day was saved by Drew & we were able to enjoy our vacation. The concierge was terrific in helping us book tours & make dinner reservations in advance of our stay & continued to assist us while we were there. I would highly recommend Harbourview!

Had a great stay. Harbourview has an understated elegance without the blog and pretentiousness of other similarly classed hotels . Better value than those as well. Top notch small hotel and responsive staff. First trip to Charleston - this hotel is away from the hustle and bustle - yet close enough - a block away to walk anywhere. Great room and great service from front desk to the bellman. These people could not have been nicer.

Once we stayed at Harbourview in 2012 we knew there was no where else to stay in Charleston. The location is perfect with great views and tons of restaurants in walking distance. The service is absolutely amazing! The staff will make dinner reservations. Your breakfast is included and brought to your room (thank you Natasha!). Turn down service on beds you won't want to get out of except you're in Charleston and there's lots to see. Wine cheese cookies. Valet service. Afternoon tea. Just book it now....ask for Betsy or Matthew and tell em Sharon from Ohio says hi.

We stayed three nights here in July, not sure what standard to expect in the light of various reviews. It was excellent. The location is perfect for all destinations in Charleston, on foot or by car (we walked to the boat terminal for Fort Sumter and drove very speedily to the baseball stadium and Sullivan's Island beach). After staying at a number of hotels catering mainly for families, with the breakfast crush etc, the individual attention here was welcome. Our rooms were large, breakfast service prompt and the reception desk very helpful. Valet parking staff were superb. The lack of a restaurant is not an issue in central Charleston with so many options.

Room Tip: Historic wing rooms may be larger
