Great location low on amenities

No pool, gym or hot tub...staff is great but, be careful to request harbourviewi or they stick you in the back over looking electric lines.

View of Electric transformers

Horrible view of electric transformers for $400 a night. This was extremely disappointing experience. I may never book with you again because of it. The vaunted cookies and milk at night were no better than grocery store cookies. The free breakfast, while nicely served on the roofdeck, is quite limited and more on the continental side. Certainly not a hot breakfast. Staff was supercilious and condescending. not helpful when i inquired about rental car. Sent me off on my own and did not help. Room was entirely mediocre.We also stayed a night at the Vendue Inn, which by conrast was spectacular and the staff far nicer and friendlier. I would never return to this place. SO DISAPPOINTED with hotel and with you for this horrible horrible room at anoutrageous rate for a dumpy view and rather ordinary everything else, other than a great location.

OH WOW! PERFECT VACATION SPOT!

This will go down as my best vacation spot ever. The hotel and staff was absolutely wonderful. I could not have asked for a more perfect time. Charleston is a beautiful city, the people are very friendly and don't treat you like tourists! The hotel met every need and provided us with a wonderful experience. Our tour guides were great, food was awesome, and the atmosphere was magnificent. Thank you for a perfect vacation.

Much better places

I stayed here for at get together with my sister and her family. I am somewhat handicapped and when I got there a valet opened the cab door and put my luggage on the curb then vanished. Waited 20 minutes-- no one came. Had to carry my three bags upstairs myself. I get to my room and lay down and FIND A NEEDLE in the bed. When I go into the bathroom there is a pink mold all around the tub. I go to check out and go to another hotel and am told I will be charged for all three days NO REFUND. But they would take 10% off one room for one night (out of 2 rooms for 3 nights at $300 a night). Great location though and bed comfortable.

Great place to stay

The Harbour View was centrally located in the historic district. Everything was a short walk or we could hop on the FREE shuttle bus which provided quick access to most parts of the town. There isn't a restruant with the hotel, but free breakfast was delivered free to your room or available in the hotel lobby. We were close to all stores/restruants/attractions
