We really enjoyed our stay at Harborview Inn. Great location, easy walking to all of historic Charleston & great restaurants. The staff were friendly & helpful. The view from our third floor room was great. The weather kept us from enjoying the rooftop terrace, since it was off & on rain. Our room was impeccably clean, very comfortable & the...

We had a beautiful harbor view room on the 1st floor for three nights. The service was superb. You get continental breakfast in your room, on the roof top terrace or in the atrium. From 5 to 6 every evening they serve wine with cheese and crackers. There is always fresh coffee, tea, hot chocolate and fresh fruit throughout the...

We stayed in a 4th floor room facing the harbor for two nights in June and could not have had a better time. The roof terrace was at the end of the corridor for a delivered Continental breakfast, wine and sunsets. The service was uniformly superb. The Charleston historic district and best restaurants were in easy walking distance. The bed...

The location is outstanding for access to the historic district tours or just walking about, as well as restaurants and shopping. The room was spacious and comfortable. We didn't miss any aminities such as a pool, spa, etc. since the purpose of the trip was to experience Charleston and enjoy old friends. The atrium room was a great place to...

The name is accurate: a fine view of Charleston Harbor immediately adjacent to the riverfront/harbor walkway. Historical Charleston is just steps away. Our room had plenty of space and was well appointed. Because we made a switch at the last minute to arrive a day earlier, we got a handicapped room with a walk in shower, so I can't comment...

Reviewed 19 April 2013

The staff were lovely. The room was well kept, but there were few toiletry amenities, no full length mirror, no mini bar. We were told there were vending machines, which gave the place a motel feel. Breakfast was included. "Seasonal fruit" turned out to be an overripe banana. We left our room on Sunday morning at 9:15 am and returned...

Great view. Good location. Really overpriced for mediocity. 1 Valet / door guy on a Saturday afternoon, just left my car and went to check in. Also means that there was no one to help with the bag.

A very nice hotel. Comfortable, nicely decorated, centrally located. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. Nice amenities like breakfast, wine and cheese reception, milk and cookies. Rooms are spacious enough, beds very comfortable. I'd go back.

The Harbourview Inn is absolutely gorgeous! It is in a fabulous location, right in the French Quarter of Charleston. Views of the harbor and waterfront park were right out our window. Great breakfast and well-appointed rooms. The only disappointment was that there is no swimming pool.

I spent one night at the Harbourview last week and thoroughly enjoyed my short stay. I booked the room last minute and got a great rate. I was told that my room may not have a view (at all) but since it was only one night, I didn't care. After arriving 15 minutes prior to check in, I was told...
