“Fantastic location, beautiful hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

I made a last minute reservation on a Monday afternoon and The Harbourview Inn could not have been more accommodating! The room was beautiful and everyone at the hotel was extremely helpful and friendly. I just wish we could have stayed longer:) The breakfast delivered to our room was an extra wonderful touch. Everything we wanted to do was in walking distance and the view from our room was spectacular. We will definitely be back.

They really know what service is about in Charleston! This spot is in an excellent location to the local galleries and eateries. The staff is knowledgeable and willing to assist you in every way. The rooms are clean with ample space. They are beautifully appointed. Breakfast comes with your reservation and is wonderful. It is worth it's price.

Room Tip: Loved the historic room we had. Ask for that area.

The location of this lovely hotel could not be better....right on the harbor and steps from everywhere you want to be....dining, walking tours, etc. The staff is courteous and helpful and the rooms are of good size and nicely appointed. Big bonus is the afternoon wine and cheese served up every day. Also you let them know what you'd like for breakfast - and where you'd like it delivered - by placing a card on your room door lock each night....really a nice touch.
We highly recommend this great place to stay in Charleston and would certainly stay there again should we return to the city.

Room Tip: Harbor views available but not in all rooms

My wife and I visited Charleston for our 13th wedding anniversary. The staff was great and our room had a balcony that overlooked the water. We had a great time and will stay again the next time that we visit Charleston.

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!
