It doesn't get much better than this! Thee Hotel was beautiful. The staff did everything they could to make our stay GREAT! Lisa and Betsy at the Front Desk gave us cold bottles of water, they helped with Restaurant picks and made reservations for us, and sent up a bottle of Champagne for my Husband's birthday which we were celebrating....

Complimentary wine & cheese, milk & cookies, M & M's. Had a great time! The best thing to add is when the group of 6 of us got stuck in a downpour of rain that flooded the streets, I called the hotel to see if they could pick us up in our mini van. The assistant manager Drew came &... More

Had a great stay. Harbourview has an understated elegance without the blog and pretentiousness of other similarly classed hotels . Better value than those as well. Top notch small hotel and responsive staff. First trip to Charleston - this hotel is away from the hustle and bustle - yet close enough - a block away to walk anywhere. Great room... More

Once we stayed at Harbourview in 2012 we knew there was no where else to stay in Charleston. The location is perfect with great views and tons of restaurants in walking distance. The service is absolutely amazing! The staff will make dinner reservations. Your breakfast is included and brought to your room (thank you Natasha!). Turn down service on beds... More

We stayed three nights here in July, not sure what standard to expect in the light of various reviews. It was excellent. The location is perfect for all destinations in Charleston, on foot or by car (we walked to the boat terminal for Fort Sumter and drove very speedily to the baseball stadium and Sullivan's Island beach). After staying at... More

Our family stayed at this 1800's hotel for four nights and was impressed by the timely service of the valets and front desk. The staff turned down our beds each night, had wine and cheese socials, warm cookies and milk at night, and an endless supply of fresh tea and M&Ms! The location is superb, a corner lot, right by...

We stayed at the Harbourview Inn for July 4th - our room had a terrace and we had wonderful front row seats for the fireworks. Room was beautiful (but not huge) and staff were very gracious and professional. Loved the location for walking around town and restaurants etc. No restaurant in the the hotel but free coffee and pastries in... More

Great hotel, from checkin to checkout - even the kids loved it! Warm friendly staff, nice room, great sheets and towels, lovely breakfast delivered to rooftop terrace, warm cookies and milk at night, coffee available all the time... Great location too. This is definitely at the top of our all-time favorite places to stay.

Our two night stay at the Harbourview Inn couldn't have been more perfect. We were warmly greeted upon our arrival by both the valet and the front desk staff. The concierges answered all of our questions and gave us additional information about the area. It's most important to elaborate about an outstanding experience we had with the management at the...

After staying a week at the beach south of Myrtle, we want to spend a couple of nights in Charleston to explore the city, and be near the airport on our way back. We enjoyed our stay at the Harbourview Inn. It was a great location, right by the water and across the street from the Waterfront park. It was... More
