“Best sleep ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

Not kidding -we had to ask the two helpful and ebullient young ladies, Lisa and Sarema(sp) at the front desk about the Temperpedic mattress! The hotel is located near the restaurants, market, horse n buggy and water walk. We shall return.

We decided to get away to Charleston for our 30th wedding aniversary. We have never traveled to that part of the country before and we were glad we did. The hotel is at a great location on the waterfront adjacent to a beautiful park that moves along the sea wall. Many sites of Charleston are within walking distance as are great restaurants. Unless we were going off the penninsula we walked every where. The rooms are spacious and the decor is updated and very comfortable. We had breakfast delivered to the room every morning...great and fresh. The staff was flawless and warm. We will be back!!

Room Tip: Request Harbor side room. Get a glass of wine and go up to the terrace at sunset.

We spent four nights at the inn, and thought it was a good place to stay in Charleston. We have stayed many places in town, and I thought their amenities were better than some more expensive hotels. We enjoyed the afternoon wine and cheese on the rooftop, and the nightly cookies and milk. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom large, but the rooms are small, and could be a bit cleaner. Overall a good place to stay in a good location in ten city.

We made the wrong choice in another Inn but were able to move to the Harbourview and what a difference. The staff was very professional, courteous and helpful. The locations is wonderful, the lobby and rooms are spotless, The breakfast in your room every morning was delicious and I cannot say enough about the daily wine and cheese reception. The roof top deck is fun especially on Thursday nights when the have a live guitar player during the wine and cheese. I would suggest this Inn to everyone I know who was thinking about visiting Charleston.

My wife and I have had the opportunity to stay in many hotels all across the United States and many countries. The HarbourView Inn is by far one of the "Best Hotels" we have stayed at. The Staff went overboard to help with any questions or concerns we had. I would highly recommend if you are going to Charleston, S.C.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are excellent. I preferred the room overlooking the harbor.

There are so many great things about this hotel. Location, right across the street from the beautiful city park on the river, two blocks from the city market and within an easy walk to galleries. historic attractions and churches. Facilities, my wife kept saying, "I love this place." and she kept thanking me for getting a room here. The bed was wonderful. There are chairs in front of a fireplace in the lobby looking out on the river. A rooftop lounge with lounge chairs. Service. All day complimentary coffee, tea, cocoa and M&Ms. Complimentary wine and cheese service in the evening. Complimentary breakfast served in your room or the rooftop.
Wheelchair accessible, except the matress height is way too high unless you have help although they could possible pull the boxspring and lower the mattress. Also the roll-in shower made me laugh, it has a wall-mounted bench, as it should, at the opposite side from the controls, so the have provided a scary plastic bench you can risk your life on. You cannot reach the lamp switches from a wheelchair. The staff overall was very pleasant and helpful but the attitude of the doorman when we arrived was the only part of the stay that we weren't comfortable with.

Room Tip: The first floor rooms are off the atrium lobby where guests congregate.

11/17 - 11/19. Excellent Hotel. Courteous and friendly. Very Comfortable beds. Complementary breakfast served to your room, the atrium area or the roof top area. Superb croissants, good coffee with fruit and juices. Wine and cheeses from 5-6 in the atrium. Then Cold milk and hot chocolate chip cookies in the lobby after 9:30PM. Every person we interacted with was helpful and courteous. We can hardly wait to stay there again.
