Large clean rooms with comfy queen beds and ice cold ac. Mini frig and microwave in room. Bath and shower combo nice. Great view from your window or go down and watch the ships from the dock. Just steps to cruises, super eateries and strand. Dee is extremely friendly and helpful.

We had a great stay. Rooms were very nice and kept clean over our three night stay. It's close to several boat tours and within walking distance of quite a few restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice clean modern room. Weird hotel. No lobby or restrooms in waiting area. Hard to lug luggage up stairs to entrance from parking lot. Lamps didn't work..called for help and the guy couldn't figure out how to get the lights turned on either. The hotel is close to port but not close enough to walk if you're hauling luggage and...

Comfortable beds, rooms are spacious, housekeeping keeps it clean. We visited the sister properties - The Galvez for the pool & spa, and The Tremont for a drink at the rooftop bar. After seeing all 3, we wished we had chosen The Tremont, as it has the most vibrant vibe, and has a lovely concierge service at the front. (Harbor... More

Great service. Room was nice and spacious. Loved the walk-in shower. Older building on outside, but everything has been updated very nicely on the inside. Simple Breakfast. Easy access. Will definitely stay here again.

The hotel was nice and very clean. The maids kept it really clean. The view from outside was great also. The only thing I didn't like was breakfast. For the price you're paying your should get more than cereal, fruit, oatmeal, and pastries. But other than that everything was great.

We took a last minute family vacay & stayed two nights at the Harbor House. Great Hotel, Quiet, & Great location. Ms. Dee at the front desk was welcoming, helpful & very funny. Only complaint was the loud AC unit in the room, but other than that we had a great weekend stay. Bonus: saw a school of dolphins from... More

We are thrilled that you enjoyed your last minute family vacation at Harbor House. As you mentioned, most rooms offer a view of the harbor and we love that you saw the dolphins. There are now five harbor excursions at Pier 21 so there's plenty to keep you busy. We hope to see you again before school starts. More
