Nice Location

Posted Apr 19, 2017
Pros: LOCATION, Location, Location and friendly staff!
Cons: New bar tender and musician on rooftop - also add canopy so everyone has shade.
Location: The bay is just across the street with beautiful fountains, great walking/relaxing. Nearly everything is within walking distance. Great Location!
We enjoyed being across the street from the Bay and fountains. We had a nice view of the bay and enjoyed morning and evening walks along the beautiful park, all just across the street. Breakfast provided was okay. Roof Top music & drinks not good & it was hot!. Cookies provided each evening were good. Excellent location to all downtown attractions! The staff was VERY friendly and accommodating. Overall I would recommend and not hesitate staying here again.

Waterfront, great walking to see everything. Staff is so accommodating and kind, easy access to restaurants, history and tours. This is just a wonderful hotel to experience Charleston from.

Excellent Hotel and Staff

Posted Mar 1, 2017
Pros: Comfortable rooms, wine and cheese bar in the afternoon, and great breakfasts delivered to the room. Professional staff.
Location: Great restaurants, shops and sight seeing.
Our stay at the Harbour View was a great experience. We had 2 rooms for my wife and I and our two adult twin daughters who were visiting us from Texas. From check in to check out everything was fantastic. We loved the rooms, and the amenities which included breakfast, afternoon tea time, the wine and cheese bar and evening milk and cookies!! The location is also fabulous. It is right on the waterfront within easy walking distance to all the great restaurants and shops. The staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. We will stay here again on our next overnight Charleston visit.

Reading Week

Posted Feb 26, 2017
Location: Definitely take the TWO SISTERS TOURS tour through the old town. Wow, did she ever know her history! And so incredibly personal.
I took my 2 girls to Charleston for their reading week, and we loved it. We choose this hotel as it was in the French Quarter and had 2 x Queen beds. Most boutique styled hotels only have doubles. We loved all the extras: 5PM wine and cheese daily, coffee & tea 24/7, cucumber/lemon water in the foyer for our water bottles, M&Ms for take out. We ate breakfast daily in the atrium, then departed for the day. So much to see both in and around Charleston. Definitely recommend it.

Great place to stay in Charleston, SC

The hotel is just a short wal to many great restaurants, and is a stop on the FREE downtown bus system.

Pros: Location, cleanliness
Cons: Be more honest about the "harbor view"
Overall very good, only complaint is that some of the "harbor view" rooms barely have a view of the harbor.

Good location for walking around town

Breakfast was disappointing. The hotel does not have a restaurant so it was delivered to your room, not so freshly cooked. rooms are nice, location great, but not a mind-blowing experience.
