The hotel has an excellent location, with close, flat walks to many nearby restaurants and attractions. We stayed in a King room in the historical wing, which was nice, but I expected more - more space, more character. The bathroom light automatically turned on when someone entered and there was a lighted makeup mirror, but those were the highlights. Upon... More

We stayed at the Harbourview Inn for the second time last week and it was just as wonderful as the first time. The cleaning staff, concierge staff, and all other staff are so friendly, kind and helpful. The complimentary wine and cheese at 5 makes the entire day and the milk and cookies every night is just the perfect touch.... More

As alluded to in the title, the location is excellent and the bed is very comfortable, but unfortunately it ends there. Our room, room 406, overlooked a power substation directly beneath it which my wife felt was giving her headaches, the wallpaper was beginning to separate from the walls in the bathroom, and the bathroom floor was quite dirty. When... More

This is a charming and pleasant hotel right across the street from the bay. It does have a rooftop patio and the views are fine. The cookies are warm and the milk is cold. The central location made up for the average service. Overall a pleasant stay.

We recently stayed two nights at the Harborview Inn- would definitely go back. Great staff, very friendly and accommodating. Our room was really comfortable. Roof top nice but not extraordinary but they do have a complimentary cocktail hour which is nice! We've been to Charleston a few times and this a great spot, great location, walkable to many places.

We had a very nice time at this hotel, and would return. The room was comfy and clean. Loved the mattress and pillows, they were not the typical lumpy bumpy kind at a lot of hotels. 2 things bugged us given the high cost. There's no breakfast room, so they give the option of delivering the food to a few... More

Only stayed for 1 night but thoroughly enjoyed. The room was large with nice seating and a comfortable king sized bed. The shower controls confused us a little. The bathroom was large. Everything was clean and modern. We faced Vendue St. and the noise kept going until about 11:00 P.M. but not too bad. Everyone was very friendly. They have... More

We stayed two nights at the Harbourview. The staff was incredible from the bell hop, the front desk, and the cleaning staff. Each person that my husband and I came in contact with were so friendly and willing to go above and beyond to make our stay as nice as possible. The room was fantastic. I have absolutely no complaints.... More

The rooms are clean and well maintained. Every employee we dealt with was friendly and helpful. The rooftop patio is a great place to relax. There's a beer store 5mins walk from the hotel so pack a small cooler and head on up to the rooftop. Breakfast delivered to the room or patio is another great amenity. My kids loved... More

The location, down by the waterfront in the French Quarter is terrific and the staff are very friendly. There are some nice amenities, like valet parking, an evening wine and cheese reception and a continental breakfast delivered to your room that are included in the room rate. The tempur-pedic mattresses are unbeatable. The evening rooftop lecture by a local historian... More
