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.

Fabulous Charleston

The HarbourView Inn is fantastic. I booked on the recommendation of online reviews and they were spot on. Room was in the historic part of the hotel, (adjacent to the new building, facing the street), which had a charming 19th century exposed brick wall and plantation shutters. Service fantastic too, from the complimentary breakfast (have it on the rooftop terrace, it's a great way to start the day) to the daily wine and cheese reception at 5pm to cookies and milk at 9pm and nightly turndown service--HarbourView Inn has it all. Only downside: travelers I met had rooms facing the electrical grid. Try to avoid those rooms if you care about the view, or will be spending a lot of time in the hotel.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Charleston is a walking city, and all of the places mentioned are within steps of the HarbourView Inn. Dinner: SNOB's; High Cotton (great jazz too) and fabulous fabulous McCrady's--for the ultimate farm-to-table experience with breathtaking cuisine and expert service in a spectacular, historic space. You have to go there. Lunch: Fleet's Landing--fresh seafood right on the harbor steps from the hotel (bonus, they serve after 3, which is not true of some of the most popular lunch spots), Tommy Condon's for a burger and a Guinness and Cru Cafe, inventive Southern cuisine in a quaint farmhouse near the carriage stables.
