Harbourview Inn
Ranked #6 of 61 Hotels in Charleston
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 April 2009

We had originally made reservations at a different inn in Charleston that is rated #1, but read some mixed reviews. So we changed reservations to the Harbourview and we are so happy that we did! The location was perfect, walking distance to everything but just a block off the hustle and bustle for a bit more quiet and relaxing environment. And Waterfront Park was right out the door. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Breakfast was served to our room every morning and kept us going all morning. We stayed in a historic room that was very comfortable. On our next visit I don't think that we would even consider staying at another place.

We are so happy that you chose to stay with us also, rather than at any other hotel in the area. The HarbourView Inn is a quiet hotel located in the Historic District where you can leave your vehicle and wander the city by foot. We are pleased that you enjoyed your in-room breakfast which adds to your relaxation and comfort. We cannot wait until your next visit. We hope that we will be your #1 after your recent stay, and will continue to be for all future stays.

Great location in Charlestown's historic district. The staff is professional, courteous and always willing to answer questions and provide assistance.

Our 4 night stay to the Harbourview was a wonderful experience. The hotel was an easy walking distance to restaurants, shops, and historical attractions. The attention to detail in everything from the rooms and the wonderful amenities was something to copy. We especially loved the idea of having breakfast delivered to our room each morning. In addition, the hotel had a tea service in the afternoon, wine and cheese around 5, and milk and cookies at night. We even received a botle of champagne for our anniversary. We would certainly go back.

I just wanted to comment that we had an absolutely incredible experience
with this Inn. The staff was not only friendly but had a sense of humor. We
were a large group but all felt like we were treated with respect and
courtesy.

We really especially enjoyed the rooftop patio and especially having
breakfast served up there. My only suggestion for that would be to add
cushions to the seats and/or put out some additional comfortable seating
options (the chaises were great - it was just that there are just two)..0

I told my husband I would return in a heartbeat and plan to bring him to
Harbourview on our next visit.

It was a busy weekend for the Cooper River Bridge Run but the staff all did a great job to make us feel like we were the only guests. It was a pricey room but comparable to others for that weekend and a better value comparitively. The location and water views were perfect.

We stayed 2 nights at the Harbourview Inn and very much enjoyed our stay. The service was always friendly and helpful. The location was fantastic -- close enough to walk to other areas, yet quiet enough right by the water. It was perfect for a quiet walk along the water in the morning. The complimentary breakfast, all day tea/coffee and afternoon wine and cheese were such a nice touch. We loved having our breakfast and wine/cheese in the lobby looking out to the water. We'll definitely go back and stay here!

We would like to extend our thanks to you for staying with us at the HarbourView Inn during your recent visit to Charleston. Having breakfast delivered to your room, the rooftop terrace, or in the atrium/lobby is always a treat. It is a fantastic way to start the day before you stroll around historic Charleston and the harbor. We look forward to your next visit.

This charming hotel is in a great location. Wonderful restaurants are around the corner and of course, it has perfect harbour views. The staff was exceptionally nice and very informative. The "breakfast in bed" was wonderful, as was all the other extras offered here. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I spent three nights at the HarbourView Inn. The inn bumped us up to a penthouse from the traditional room we reserved at check-in which was a pleasant surprise--the view of the river from our balcony was very nice. We did not use our car during our stay as everything was within walking distance. Everyone was very professional and helpful from the moment we arrived. Breakfast was brought to our room each morning, they arranged for us to be picked-up for a tour, and offered to make dinner reservations for us as well. I would highly recommend the HarbourView Inn to anyone and should we return for another visit to Charleston, we would without a doubt stay there again.

Once you check-in and the valet’s park your vehicle you can wonder all around Charleston on foot. We strive to provide a comfortable setting for you to relax and enjoy all the amenities the hotel has to offer.
