My spouse and I celebrated our 20th anniversary in Charleston the first week of April. Based on our Trip Advisor research, we stayed at the Harbourview Inn and it could not have been a better experience.
The location was wonderful, on the waterfront and in the thick of the historic district. The building was a historic landmark that recently won some awards for its renovation. The rooms were well appointed and well cared for. The mattresses are tempur-pedic foam, which was incredible to sleep on. (The only problem there was the reality of returning to our own bed back home.)
Breakfast is included and can be delivered to your room (which we recommend) or taken in the atrium or front lobby looking out over the water.
Wine and cheese at 5 and fresh baked cookies and cold milk at 9pm rounded out the day. All on the house.
The staff was very friendly and professional and helped me arrange for flowers to be there upon our arrival. The hotel added a nice bottle of champagne and a card to our celebration.
You have to pay for parking but staff makes it easy to get in and out as needed. There is not a workout facility on site but they have an agreement with a fine health club/spa about 1.5 blocks away as part of your stay.
I'd have to say it was probably the best hotel experience I've ever had and I travel a fair amount for work.
We will go back to Charleston and with any luck, find a room available at Harbour View Inn again.
