Great hotel for long weekend on foot

Our stay at the Harbour View was perfect. The staff, hotel and location could not have been better. The breakfast in room and wine and cheese hour made the hotel special.

Great Experience

This hotel was great. First off this hotel is in a great location for everything downtown charleston. Within a couple of blocks to the market, resteraunts, shopping, and right across the street from the downtown park and fountains. The staff was great and extremely helpful. example: We pulled in a little early and the bellman/valet said it was no problem to park there until the room was ready so we could enjoy downtown without having to fight for a parking space. Furthermore he called the front desk and found out our room was indeed ready so we went up to check in. After checking in we go to see our room and about 5 min's later the bellman has unloaded our luggage from the car and brought it to us. The breakfast in the mornings were great and I recommend eating it up on the roof. The room size was very large for the price and extremely comfortable. This Hotel was outstanding in every way. We will definately be staying here again.

Definitely worth a visit

HArbour View Inn, Charleston SC is a wonderful hotel located close to shopping and restaurants. The staff is extremely helpful and pleasant. The room was hugh (we have stayed at other hotel in Charleston and most of them are tiny with little room to move)The afternoon wine and cheese reception is a great way to meet other guests, and the continential breakfast, which you can have served in your room or relax in the lounge, is wonderful. Warm pasteries, fruit and delicious coffee. We will definitely be staying the next time we visit Charleston. Extremely convenient with shopping, tours and wonderful restaurants within short walking distance.

Nice location near the sea and the centre

A very friendly and helpful smaller hotel with (if you ask for it) a view over the park and the sea. Very comfortable and I liked the (complimentary) early evening drink and nibbles where you could chat to fellow guests (I didn't try the late night hot drinks and cookies). Our daughter missed having a pool.

great hotel

The location was perfect for what we wanted. We did not pay extra for a balcony which was fine with us since the have a rooftop terrace which we used a few times. the free breakfast, wine & cheese, and refreshments were nice. There was a couple times there was no water or ice tea available, which I thought was to be available 24 hours but maybe they were changing things out. No pool, hot tub, restaurant but there is so much to do close to the hotel. Rooms were clean & comfortable. would have liked a little more information from the desk staff re: what the hotel offers rather than reading it all when we got to the room.

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
