The staff was friendly and showed us true southern hospitality. The rooms are immaculate and the Tempurpedic four poster beds and linen were great. The bathroom was large and clean. You do want to avoid the city view on floors one and two as you look directly at a large electric sub station. Our city view on the third floor...

I was there over Labor day weekend for my daughter's wedding. Great location near the waterfront. It was quiet, comfortable, and clean. I was close to all the events and restaurants but the hotel was tucked away from all the traffic and crowds. This made it ideal. The room had a view of the harbor which we loved and easy...

Good location and very nice rooms. Service seemed impersonal. I wouldn't say this is charming but more on the upscale side. It does include breakfast that is better than continental but you won't get anything hot. Our room had a view of a lot of electrical stuff on the roof next door. The harbor view is from the front side...

My friends and I had a wonderful weekend stay at the Harbourview Inn. Our room was clean and well appointed. The exposed brick wall was a beautiful touch. The staff was friendly and accommodating. And the location was perfect, within walking distance to many awesome Charleston area restaurants. We'll definitely be back!

The Harbourview Inn was the fifth and final hotel in my US tour and unfortunately the least satisfying. Location is good and valet parking and concierge were efficient. Check in was fine but much less friendly than in my previous stays during my trip. The hotel is smart and classy but was a bit dull for my liking - everything...
