The Harbourview Inn is a really excellent option in Charleston. The rooms are more modern and updated than other "high-end" options (i.e., Frances Marion) and the price is more reasonable (i.e., Planters Inn). The room is really spacious, clean, well-appointed, and comfortable. The hotel is located on a side street on the water, so the rooms are very quiet, and although it looks like a far walk on the map to the historic center or to King Street, it's only 4-5 blocks. The location is perfect.
Other notes: the WiFi works great, the breakfast menu looks limited (a bagel and yogurt?) but is actually really filling, and the (optional) delivery of breakfast to the room is a plus. Ok, the free wine and cheese at 5 pm is a "gimmick" offered by other B&Bs (as other reviewers have complained), but it was still enjoyable and a nice way to relax after sight-seeing and before dinner. Yes, the valet parking is expensive, but that's the case in most other Charleston hotels as well -- there's nowhere to park your car in the city center and I found the valet helpful and convenient.
