This hotel has always been a favorite of mine & I decided to take my soon to be bride Miss Mary there for a night on the town & stay at the hotel. The rooms are extremely clean, large & comfortable. The hotel lobby if very bright & cheery as are the front desk staff Miss Sabrina & Miss Lisa. Around 5pm there is a happy hour of cheese, crackers & wine for the guests with cookies & milk served around 9-10pm. The morning breakfast is adequate & can be delivered to the room, atrium or upstairs on the balcony. The hotel is directly across from the bay & only a few blocks to the market place & also Harris Teeters grocery store. This was a stay to celebrate our engagement & to our surprise a complimentary bottle of champagne arrived in our room after dinner. Give them a try, you will see why we are repeat guests.

Room Tip: Request a room on 2nd or 3rd floor overlooking the bay

I can't wait to go back to this place. From the moment I walked in to the moment I left, this hotel was an incredible experience. The staff is fabulous, everyone is so friendly. My room was clean, spacious, quiet, comfortable. I did not want to get out of bed. I ordered breakfast to be served in the atrium. I had no idea I would get a phone call telling me my breakfast would be served in 5 minutes. What a neat surprise. The bed was turned down and there was chocolate on the bed. Been a long time since I've had that. I have definitely found my new Charleston hotel. The location is just perfect too.

Room Tip: I was on the harbor side, perfect spot. My co-worker was on the other side and had a view of a tree...

My husband and I took a few days getaway to Charleston and stayed at this Inn for two nights. The staff is wonderful and very helpful with things to do and directions. The room was clean and comfortable. The most amazing thing is that you can order your breakfast the night before and they deliver it to your room so you can start your day out right. The afternoon cheese and wine was fantastic. We stayed right on the harbour view and it was fantastic. We did get rain so we missed out on alot, but that is one more reason to return to this beautiful inn.

Room Tip: select a room right on the harvour top floor....fantastic :)

My friends and I stayed at the HarbourView Inn this past October. I have never had a more enjoyable experience. The inn was immaculate, beautifully decorated and the staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. Someone else mentioned how wonderful the beds were - absolutely the best! We had our choice of where we wanted to eat breakfast each morning - the view from the rooftop was wonderful. We made our selections the night before so our breakfast was there just when we wanted it to be. Another wonderful feature - the inn is close to everything! Can't wait to stay there again!

My husband and I decided to spend a few days in Charleston with another couple. We choose this hotel because of it's location near shops, restaurants and of course the harbor is literally in it's backyard. What we didn't expect was the exceptional service throughout our stay. The entire staff was always so generous and patient with their time and our requests. The perks were really lovely....happy hour, bedtime milk and cookies and a wonderful breakfast served in your room, or on the rooftop terrace or in the various sitting areas throughout the hotel. BTW, our room was very well appointed and we had the most gorgeous gigantic bathtub I have ever seen!

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.
