Excelent location

We were one night in this hotel. Well located, very close to the center and with very nice sight. The room was big and comfortable. The bathroom had been recently renovated. The lobby of the hotel is agreeable and the decoration is modern. The personnel was very attentive in all the dependences on the hotel. The bar is charming and at least when we were, had a good ambience. The restaurant is old fashion and dark. It is a pity because it is located in the last floor and the view is fantastic but it seems sad. The buffet for breakfast is very simple and a little bit expensive, but the personnel at the restaurant was always very cordial

Ok for a couple of nights

1st room smelled of old smoke like it had once been a smoking room, 2nd was just stale. No fan in bathroom so damp air & floors always damp in both rooms. Did have metal cots for the children & very nice staff. Good shuttle to town & helpful shuttle driver. Linen was clean. Breakfast overpriced.

Nice Lower Priced Hotel

I love the price, the location, the staff and that the room is nice and clean. I've stayed there a few times. The rooms are older and in need of a remodel, and seem to have a weird high humidity situation going on, but they are very clean. The restaurant has a great view and cool bar. But again, it's like going to an older style casino in Vegas ... it once was great ... and is now a great value.

20th anniversary

I informed them this would be for our 20th anniversary and asked for a room with a view. Well Amanda Carter gave it to us. We were on the top floor with a view of the water and downtown. Everything was great. Use the free shuttle into town. Nobody likes driving around charleston.

Average Hotel

There is nothing special about this hotel. We stayed for the weekend and it was very average. There was a storm so the power was out (not their fault) but it was an inconvenience. They did provide a shuttle but the times didn't match up with what we needed. Don't expect a lot and you won't be disappointed.

Quick visit

The location is great! set between both sides of the highway, the hotel offers great views of downtown and the harbor beyond. The restaurant at the top of the hotel offers fantastic 360 degree views. Great French toast for breakfast. Staff is very friendly an rooms were very clean.

It's the people that count

The HIRiverview as a structure needs some updating in in-room amenities as well as an updated lobby. But, what counted was the staff. They were fantastic. The front desk was helpful. Jo, our server for 4 days in the bar area deserves special praise; so should our shuttle drivers Damien, Josh and Donavon. We would stay at this hotel any time we were in Charleston. PS: Restaurant had a great menu and good food.

Just one problem with our stay.

First of all, we left the do not disturb sign on our door when we went out for the day. When we came back that night, we could see they had come in our room anyway and removed our fridge and microwave. We had a few things in the fridge & they were removed & left on the table. We brought back leftovers from dinner because of the fact that we had a fridge & microwave when we left that morning. Consequently, we had to throw them out. Not sure why they could not wait till we checked out the next morning to remove those items.

Great value for the price!!

Staff was incredibly nice, very helpful, and offered opinions of great restaurants and sites around Charleston. Definitely knew there surroundings. The free shuttle to downtown is wonderful to have and we used it everyday. The view and happy hour at the restaurant are great as well. Overall very nice hotel for what you pay.
