Perfection!

Posted Jan 4, 2017
Pros: Everything! The view, the staff, the décor, the treats, and the location!
Location: Everything is within walking distance. The park is directly across the street, surrounded by great restaurants, museums, and art galleries.
Staff was beyond friendly! Hotel has a direct view of the harbor and park; perfect place to watch sunrise/sunset. Breakfast was served promptly at the requested time each morning and was nice, just enough to get you going. Stayed in the Grand Room with Harbor View. Room was very comfortable/cozy with sufficient space for my clothes, to read and enjoy the fireplace, and for a luxurious shower! Fruit, hot cider, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and freshly baked cookies were served each day. What a relaxing place to stay! I wouldn't change a thing!

Christmas in Charleston

Posted Dec 31, 2016
Pros: Location, amenities
Cons: More breakfast options
Location: Directly on the Waterfront Park near the pier and tons of cute shops and restaurants very nearby.
We celebrated Christmas this year by meeting friends at the Harborview. The amenities were wonderful, the location is the best, and we all agreed we would come back again.

The staff and location were exceptional. The beds were very comfortable. The coffee was always fresh as well as the availability of fresh fruits. The view from the patio (rooftop) was amazing. I would highly recommend this venue for its romantic charm and super-friendly staff.

Lovely hotel. Great location and super staff.

Posted Dec 12, 2016
Pros: comfortable rooms and beds. nice amenities.
Cons: the lobby area could use an upgrade, which I believe is about to begin.
Location: perfect location for restaurants, the waterfront, shopping
From the moment we arrived we experienced the best in hospitality at Harbor View. It has a comfortable vibe. Coffee and tea available all day as well as M&M's. Milk and cookies at night. It is situated in the heart of the restaurant area and walking distance to most attractions.

Great hotel experience

Posted Dec 11, 2016
The hotel itself is great - its location is amazing to explore this beautiful city and everything it has to offer, plus the rooms and common areas are spacious and in great condition. But I'm tempted to say the staff more than match the building. The staff are generally young, and all are energetic, welcoming and professional. I was in no doubt they took pride in maximising the guest's experience. Aside from the numerous positive personal interactions with the team, they have in place lots of initiatives - including free cookies & drinks at different times, and breakfast delivered to your room, to a cool roof top happy hour with 'activities' such as a guitarist playing or bourbon tasting. Great effort and a great experience. Thanks!

Great hotel

Posted Dec 8, 2016
Pros: This hotel has a lot of charm and character with lovely rooms and amenities.
From beginning to end , this hotel is great. The staff is terrific. You can have breakfast (included in the price) ordered to your liking and eat in the atrium, the rooftop, or in your room. Every afternoon there is wine and cheese offered in the atrium. The hotel is within walking distance to many of the attractions, and the free trolley stops right in front. There's a lovely walk on the pier in front of the hotel, with big swings in a covered area,and lovely views of the river/harbour.
