Delightful

The hotel staff was pleasant and accommodating - we were allowed to check into our room early, greeted by friendly faces, and treated with the utmost respect. The location is perfect, nestled within all the shops and restaurants and near the beautiful waterfront.

Great Time at the Harbour View

The Harbour View Inn in Charleston, South Carolina is probably one of the nicest places to stay in the downtowm area. Great location by the water park, easy walking to areas of interest and good restaurants, and nice staff.

Excellent locaton

We were within walking distance of great resturants and shops. WE Loved S.N.O.B.(Slightly North of Broad).The Harbour Park was across the street filled with paths for walking and biking along the water. The trolley stop was just outside the front door. Two main trolleys used this stop and could take you to all other main attractions in the city such as The Market, the Aquarium , and the Battery. The beds were comfortable and rooms spacious.The refreshments during the day were nice-wine and cheese, cookies and coffee... An expanded continental breakfast was available and could be delivered to your room- including expresso.The only draw back was no on site resturant-yet many were nearby AND no fitness facility,yet there was a park across the street. I would definetly stay there again.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

I really enjoyed the nightime walking Ghost Tour.The Prison /Dungeon is suppose to be the mostactive. The Calhoun Mansion was exquisite. the current owner is a collector of all things-fine art, religious relics,sculptures.... He displays them in his mansion which has been restored to it its original granduer.

Excellent location in Historic Charleston

Excellent location near Battery Park, overlooking fountain. Walking distance to numerous excellent restaurants. Menus for area restaurants on display in lobby for your review. Wine and cheese tea served during afternoon for hotel guests and cookies served early evening. We walked along pier after dinner one evening and enjoying swinging on porch swing along covered pier overlooking the harbor. Breakfast is served delivered to your room or to rooftop balcony. We also appreciate the free wireless internet access throughout the hotel.
