HarbourView Inn in Charleston, South Carolina

Situated in one of America's most enticing cities and surrounded by volumes of history, the HarbourView Inn overlooks the bustling waterfront of Charleston, South Carolina. Boasting AAA Four-Diamond status and a Gold List award from the editors of Condé Nast Traveler, guests of this enchanting retreat can bask in the glorious appointments that recall the city's early years as a nautical trading hub with the Caribbean colonies. Rooms are a mix of Old-World wonders and haute appointments with fine antiques positioned beneath plasma-screen televisions. Hunker down in a room with arched windows and exposed brick walls or request a penthouse chamber with working fireplace, a mini bar stocked with complimentary refreshments, and a Juliette-style balcony overlooking the harbor.

Southern hospitality is contagious within the inn's confines. Amenities include complimentary wine and cheese in the afternoon followed by fresh-baked cookies and milk in the evenings. Added conveniences such as their silver service breakfast - delivered to your room, on the rooftop terrace or presented in the magnificent atrium lobby - are to be expected. It is likely you will want to explore the genteel cobblestone streets of Charleston, the city where Rhett Butler and Scarlet O'Hara honeymooned. The inn even offers complimentary historic walking tours, but you may not need a guide at all. Located within walking distance to Waterfront Park, the famous city market, several wonderful restaurants, a bevy of boutiques and antique row, the HarbourView Inn allows guests to explore with ease. As for those storybook antebellum homes, they too are plentiful, and many are open for the public to tour.

Came across Harbourview Inn while walking. What a great location by the water. Loved the lobby and went to check out the rooftop. Such a nice place. The front desk were really friendly even though we said we were just checking the hotel for future visits. There's not a lot of places that have such great views of the water. This one does. If the price is right this is my next place I'm staying at in Charleston.

We LOVE everything about the Harbourview Inn. The location is terrific and the staff so welcoming and accommodating that it makes for a wonderful relaxing experience, even if you have extenuating circumstances. The rooms are spacious and appealing and the beds and bedding so comfortable. A wonderful breakfast is included and we had so many nice options for food and where we wanted to have breakfast. Definitely not your typical breakfast that is included with a room. Another impressive thing about this hotel is the service and how they make you feel so valued as a customer. We were in Charleston for a wedding and had booked another hotel where it was recommended wedding guests stay. The hotel was so awful and unacceptable that we had to leave at 10pm at night. We called the Harbourview and they were so helpful and accommodating even taking into account that we had to pay at the other hotel and giving us a reasonable rate. We have never left a hotel before and the staff at the Harbourview made an otherwise stressful situation really wonderful. When we walked in our room it was the best feeling and the bathroom is one I would want in my own home. We had stayed at the Harbourview many years ago and I have thought about it so much since then and it was everything I had remembered and more. My husband and friends that were with us felt the same way. Even my husband said he would go back to Charleston just to spend time in this hotel. There are so many facets to this hotel that make for a great experience including the location, afternoon wine and cheese if that is your thing, free bike rentals(which are really a plus) and it so easy to walk everywhere. This is one of our most favorite hotels of all the places we have stayed both in the US and abroad.

This hotel is fabulous! Everyone friendly and helpful and the amenities are over and above other hotels! Enjoyed every moment! Breakfast in the spacious rooms, tea in afternoon, cheese and wine in evening and cookies at night plus the roof top bar made this hotel over the top!!

The Harbourview is a nice mix between hotel and Inn. It's set up like a hotel, but has a much more personal feel. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Each afternoon, they set up wine and cheese, as well as a small bar in their front lobby, which looks out over the water park across the street. It was a great way to unwind at the end of a busy day. (The rooftop bar was closed, due to weather) The rooms were comfortable, very clean and nicely decorated. We had a 4th floor harbor view king room. It had a small balcony with a beautiful view of the harbor. We would definitely stay here again.

I can honestly say that this is the first time that I haven't been at least a little disappointed in a hotel. Everything is great - from the location and views to the staff and amenities. We've walked or driven by all the other hotels we considered before deciding on this one and we are so very glad to have chosen the Harborview! Our room isn't large, but so very nice with a super comfy bed, fireplace and balcony. The turndown service is such a nice touch, with soft classical music playing when you enter the room. If you are planning a trip to Charleston, this is your place! Here's a photo of the sunrise from our balcony :)
