Location, Class, Comfort

Posted Jul 16, 2017
Pros: I liked the small size of the hotel, very boutique feel. Great manager reception in the evening plus fantastic complimentary breakfast.
We splurged on a one night stay at the HarbourView Inn and it was well worth it. It is in the perfect location - out of the way of traffic (cars and pedestrians) and is located right on the harbor. Quick walk to all major Charleston restaurants, shopping, sightseeing. Customer service is spot on, they greet you with a drink which is such a nice treat after a travel day.

Posted Jul 11, 2017
Nice view of the harbour, and nice location for walking to bars/restaurants They are not quite as polished with service as I might have expected, we had to ask for a number of things that we were supposed to be in the rooms but weren't The breakfast was good.

We had a wonderful stay at the HarbourView Inn. The service is top notch and the location couldn't be better. From taking walks along the water to having access to so many great dining options, it is a great place to stay!

Wonderful place to stay!

Posted Jul 1, 2017
We had a wonderful time at Harbourview. From the complimentary breakfast delivered to one of three locations, including you room to the simplicity of its perfect location it was a home run. The staff was personable and helpful and the rooms spacious and comfortable. Thanks for making our stay in Charleston wonderful.

Excellent location for exploring and dining!

Posted Jun 25, 2017
Pros: The warm and inviting staff and the décor of the hotel set the tone right away, confirming that you made an excellent hotel choice.
Cons: A really minor thing, but some added sound-proofing of the elevator drive could be beneficial.
Location: Great views from the adjacent pier. Upscale and local shopping within easy walking distance. Many dining options close by.
An awesome boutique hotel experience in a great location. Friendly staff, inviting atmosphere, and an excellent home base for exploring. A wide variety of dining options, shopping, and activities within easy walking distance. Free Charleston shuttle stops right in front of the hotel. Adjacent to pier with a panoramic view of the harbor.

Beautiful View of the Harbor

Posted Jun 7, 2017
Location: We were able to walk to all of the restaurants and shops from this hotel.
We arrived late at night and very tired but were greeted by a very nice young man who made sure that our room was ready. We noticed that the decor of the hotel was very home-like and comfortable with fluffy chairs in the seating areas and cookies and milk ready and waiting. During the day, that area was always stocked with sweet tea, herbal water, granola and m&ms. There was also a separate area where you could get coffee and specialty teas. A light breakfast with a lovely assortment of continental breakfast items was included each morning. We would definitely go back to this hotel.
