“A wonderful time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

My wife, daughter and I enjoyed every minute of our stay at The Habour View Inn. The hotel was charming, clean and quiet. The accommodations couldn't have been nicer- the most comfortable beds ever . I had the rare experience of getting a great night's sleep in a hotel room-something that rarely happens when I travel. The room was spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. We felt right at home. Breakfasts on the roof top patio were such a nice way start to each day. All the staff were so kind and courteous to us and they were attentive to all our needs. Everyone was so pleasant and helpful- we really appreciated this. The hotel location is wonderful with everything being so close by. We're already looking forward to our next visit there.

This hotel was close to the water, restaurants and the historic French quarter. I loved the design and feel of the hotel. The price is a little steep, but if you have a little extra cash spend it at this hotel. I won't be staying anywhere else when I return to charleston.

Spent the weekend to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. The room had a balcony and harbor view. Gorgeous room, and view. Enjoyed the roof top patio, and the room in breakfast. Very costly stay, but well worth it. The city that wed us 10 years ago, love Charleston!

Room Tip: Our harbor view room on the fourth floor, enjoyed every minute. Very quiet

Great view from our harbor view room! It had french doors that opened to a Juliette balcony, which was perfect for the wonderful weather. The entire staff was very friendly. Especially Jessica and Grant. Stacey, our housekeeper was very attentive to detail and our room was spotless when we returned.

Room Tip: Even if your room doesn't have a direct view, keep in mind that there is a roof top terrace with...

We arrived with no reservations, that's the way we travel. Spent three nights and enjoyed the accommodation, the room was clean ,the bed was comfortable and the staff was helpful with dinner recommendations ,etc.
The evening manager Marcus Bentel treated us first class, made our reservations for dinner and even met us for wine later that evening. This is a person who should be in the hotel bis, he take's care of customers and seams to enjoy it.

Room Tip: Bring your bicycles and ride around town

We stayed at this hotel for three nights. The hotel is located by everything. We didn't rent a car and we walked to almost every location including restaurants, tours, and the boat dock. The hotel has so many comfortable touches. From the 24 dispenser of M&M's, breakfast where you choose, happy hour with wine and guitar on the upper patio, Tempurpedic mattresses, nice staff. Our room was had a King bed, free Wifi. I don't know if they had an exercise room because we walked so much around Charleston that we didn't need one. We would stay here again

Room Tip: our room was in a corner and pretty quiet. A few door slams, but otherwise great

My husband and I stayed here 2 years ago for our anniversary. The staff was attentive and helpful. The hotel is right next to the water and you can walk to all of the local attractions and to many restaurants. We loved the temper-pedic mattress too.The rooftop was nice too, we were able to eat breakfast up there and people watch.
