Perfect Place

This is hotel is in a perfect location. The rooms are large including the bathroom and very comfortable. The staff is extremely nice and helps you with all of your questions. Breakfast in bed is a nice touch as well as the wine and cheese hour every night. We have been to Charleston many times and have never stayed here until this trip. However, going forward we will likely always stay here.

The hotel is about 3 blocks from a outdoor market, that is wonderful. Great resturants, that match the amazing city. A lot if local shopping. The hotel is just off the harbor.

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 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.

My review of The Harbour View Inn

The staff though pleasant were slow and often confused. Valet parking was the only option and they too were often very slow at retrieving and or parking the car. That being said the room itself was very clean the bed comfortable and the location wonderful. They have no restaurants and very few amenities but it is an inn and great for couples looking for a romantic getaway.
