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.

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.

Try it you won't be sorry.

Posted Feb 11, 2017
Pros: Location and service are excellent.
Cons: Bathroom shower was beautiful but not properly sloped to the drain. Floor got a little wet.lol
Location: Close to everything,museums, historic homes, restaurants. Free bus service around town. Car rentals are near.
We enjoyed our stay and thanks to a recent snow storm we got an extra two days since our flight was canceled.

Close to most things in historic downtown Charlest

Posted Feb 5, 2017
Pros: The daily perks: wine and cheese; cookies and milk; afternoon teas, etc.
Cons: Nothing really.
Location: Close to everything in historic Charleston. Magnificent restaurants nearby.
Our stay at the Harbourview Inn was wonderful. The staff is attentive and personable, there are lots of nice amenities such as a breakfast that can be delivered to your room, the small atrium or the rooftop. We would definitely stay here again.

Lovely time - would return

Posted Jan 31, 2017
Great staff, large and clean rooms, well-chosen furniture. Fantastic daily wine and cheese hour and breakfast delivered to your room. Location can't be beat; great roof deck as well. It's more of a modern building versus an historic old inn, but still cozy and comfortable. We were very satisfied and would return.

Very kind and accommodating staff.

Posted Jan 24, 2017
Food was great at breakfast. The hot cookies and milk at night is a great touch. Room was very clean and decorated nicely. Smaller hotel but very nice and quiet so it is ideal for a vacation spot. Lots to see if you want it. Free shuttle goes to shopping on King Street so you have that aspect of you want it. Great college town.

Nice hotel. Close to the harbor.

Posted Jan 23, 2017 on Orbitz
Pros: Breakfast was conviently served in the room at no charge.
Cons: Small shop in hotel.
Location: Charleston has a myriad of restaurants, antique shops and historic sites nearby. Park across the street is lovely for looking at the water.
Comfortable hotel. Lacking modern conveniences. No room service or shops in the hotel. No gym or minibar. Staff was warm but often missed the mark. Cozy room. Harbor view rooms are best. Great view from the rooftop.
