“Great Pick”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

The Harbourview Inn is an excellent selection. You can't ask for a better view as the name implies. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room was well maintained and stylish with a fantastic bathroom. There are so many wonderful restaurants within walking distance as well as plenty of shopping. We enjoyed the continental breakfast and the cookies in the evening.

My go to hotel for business and sometimes pleasure. Have enjoyed this hotel for many years. Consistant quality, but value is a bit lacking. Rooms are OK, furniture dated and the carpet is stickey. BUT, this is Charleston and it is very humid during the summer. Linens were nice as were the bathroom amenities. New amenity if booked through Expedia is free breakfast, delivered to your room or the atrium. Nice touch. Expensive, but again this is Charleston during the peak season.

Room Tip: Ask for an high floor room facing the river. Street side can be noisy. River side says views, but mo...

What a wonderful experience. This hotel was first rate. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Rooms were beautiful with excellent amenities. While they don't have a restaurant, they serve you continental breakfast in various locations, have afternoon tea, offer wine and cheese to start your evening and a special treat before bed. We celebrated my sister's birthday and is provided it the right amount of "princess" without being stuffy. Beds were fantastic and the location near waterfront park was ideal. Free wifi or if you are not connected a full staff to help with anything you might need. I can't wait to return on my next visit!

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!
