We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and could not have been happier with our hotel choice. The staff was upbeat, happy, and friendly. Every time we passed a staff member in the halls or elevator they would greet us with a smile and ask how our day was. The rooms are lovely and well taken care of. The... More

The Harbourview Inn is an amazing place to stay. The two short nights that we spent there were way too short and we loved every minute of it. From the chocolate chip cookies at night to the wine and cheese hour, everything was great. I recommend grabbing yourself a glass of wine and going upstairs to the rooftop seating area... More

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.

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.
