Reviewed 31 March 2010

Stayed 3 nights at the Harbourview Inn based on tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Location is amazing, on the water, right in town, we were able to walk everywhere. Everyone at the hotel goes out of their way to help you and makes sure you enjoy your stay. We especially liked the complimentary wine and cheese hour, nice to chat with other hotel guests about what they had seen and done in Charleston.

An excellent hotel with exceptional service!!! Centrally located to historical sights, shopping, and great restaurants--all in walking distance. Our family of four stayed in a room with two queen beds. Lots of room for all of us to be comfortable, and a huge bathroom. The staff (Jen and Drue) at the front desk helped us with many questions (dinner reservations & directions) always with a smile. Jack helped with our car and suitcases, also was so very nice. The extra, unexpected touch, in our room for our anniversary was wonderful. Hope to return again to Charleston soon, and stay at our "favorite" place!

We stayed at the Harbourview for 3 nights whilst touring the southern states.
The hotel is in a fantastic location next to Waterfront Park and a short walk to many excellent restaurants. The trolley stop right outside means that it is very easy to get round all the sights.
The hotel is spotless with high quality furnishings. The staff were efficient and friendly. We found the early evening cheese and wine session was a great way for guests to meet and chat.
The breakfast choice was fine. As there is no breakfast room we opted for having breakfast in our room though we would have chosen the roof terrace hadf the weather been more reliable.
Without doubt though it was the location of the hotel that made our stay in Charleston so memorable.

This is not a hotel really, it is just a bunch of suites run by a small reception desk on the second floor. There is zero atmosphere to this inn.. There is no restaurant, no welcoming lobby per se. The rooms are build off of a very modern carpeted balcony, so again there is no charm or atmosphere. We booked a suite at over $400 a night and while the suite was nice, it was not in any way exceptional and in fact the bedroom area could really just fit the king bed. As there is no restaurant, our included breakfast was typical holiday inn express type food - some cold bagels and orange juice, or a hard boiled egg. Yuck!

My friends and I travel to Charleston every year for the Cooper River Bridge Run. We have stayed in many different hotels but after our stay at HarborVeiw, we will never stay anywhere else again. They spoiled us! ! Two weeks before we were scheduled to arrive, Drew called from the front desk to confirm my reservation, inquire if he could make any dinner reservations for us and wish us a safe trip to Charleston. We arrived ,to a beautiful property on the water, and were greeted by very helpful bellmen. When we checked in, Jen and Sara both, were pleasures to interact with, extremely helpful and so accomadating to EVERYTHING we asked for. We had a vegatarian traveling with us so we were unsure of what restaurants we should go to, they made reservations at several restaurants, printed the menus, gave them to us so we could make a choice, then followed up with us when we forgot to tell them where we wanted to go. One friend had business to conduct, they have a computer and printer in the lobby so she could print out contracts and then they faxed them at no charge.

The breakfast delivered to our room each morning was excellent and such a treat when you are traveling. I cannot not recall the girl's name who brought our breakfast every morning but she was so cheerful and always pleasant to any request we had. When checking out our bellman took our bags and loaded the car perfectly.

I could go on and on about our fabulous experience but upon check out we rebooked for next year. I won't stay anywhere else in Charleston again. Thanks to all the staff, we had an excellent experience! Can't wait till next year!

We arrived at 2 in the morning after two horrendous flights. The staff was exceptional, the room exceptional, the location, exceptional. Throughout our stay the attention to detail was meticulous. The complementary breakfast delivered to our room was lovely. I can't say enough about the staff and facility. I can't wait to go back.

Have stayed here many times. Wind and cheese at night is great. Right in the middle of EVERYTHING but just off the beaten path. Jen at the front desk was super!!
