4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

This is a very nice hotel with beautiful, large sleeping rooms. The bathroom was large and beautiful with soft, luxurious towels. The best thing about this hotel is the location. We put our car in the garage when we arrived and did not get it out until we were leaving the city. Everything we chose to do we could walk... More

My husband & I stayed here for our first trip to Charleston & loved it. Excellent location. Across the street from Water Front Park. In downtown, within walking distance of everything downtown. I would recommend the harbor view rooms- beautiful views! The continental breakfast is really good! I would recommend the croissants and quiche. The rooftop terrace is another lovely... More

One of the best locations in the city, had a room over looking the fountain, which is always packed with happy children. How does this place always have the MOST COMFORTABLE BEDS ON THE PLANET?!?!? The staff is so nice, friendly and helpful, I cannot recommend this place highly enough, stay here when in Charleston.

Excellent choice for a number of reasons. Location is great! Right in the middle of the french quarter area and you can walk to everything. Breakfast is awesome each morning and they will bring it to your room or the rooftop or parlor. The staff was extremely friendly.

The Harbourview is firstly, wonderfully located. It is very easy to walk to most of the downtown sites of Charleston, especially restaurant row. The hotel itself is larger than I anticipated for a corner hotel. The staff are wonderful. They are polite and very helpful. I had only great experiences with the front desk staff. They were great in helping... More

The Harbourview Inn is a great hotel in a great location. We had a great time and enjoyed the rooftop seating area with live music, drinks and snacks watching the sunset. The room was very comfortable with a nice view. Great service with valet parking. Centralized location offers lots to do a short walk away. Highly recommended.
