    Well done, nicely appointed city inn. Comfortable, clean. Central Charleston location adjacent to a wealth of restaurants, shopping. Waterfront park, and attractions.

    Could use water bottles at least (tap water was tepid and therefore not particularly good for drinking) if not some modest and appropriate mini- bar stock.

    Location. We were in walking distance to everything we wanted to do.

    For the price of the room it seemed pretty basic. Close the blinds and look around the room and it's really no different than a Hampton Inn. Don't get me wrong, the location and the view were well worth it though.

    The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly. The locationwas good, however the internet description said that every room had a view of the harbor. Our view was of power lines and the alley. That was a major disappointment.

    The location was great. The hotel is overlooking the waterfront park. Was in walking distance to shopping and many top rated restaurants. The room was lovely and very comfortable.

    Enjoyed the area. First time visit. Hotel was very convenient, clean, friendly.

    A bit pricey. Should have had a better breakfast available.

    The location is great and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

    We would have ended up in a room looking at the power station had we not asked to be moved and fortunately a nice staff accommodated us to the historic part of the hotel so we could look out over the street instead. Our room was very nice but we would have been miserable in the other one for $300 a night. Nowhere in the booking does it mention this so should be noted somewhere.

    The room for the money was horrendous. I stay at many hotels and I was extremely disappointed in the room and horrible view.

    Nice wine and cheese in the afternoon. Choice of four breakfasts served to your room or deck patio in the morning. Newspaper was an added touch. Very friendly and helpful front desk and bell captains. Good location right on the Harbor with very good views of morning sunrise.

    Although we were only there for a one night stay, it was just lovely. From valet parking when we checked in to breakfast on the rooftop terrace the next morning, the staff was extremely courteous, knowledgable, and friendly. The complimentary wine and cheese reception and late night cookies and milk were a wonderful touch as well. The hotel was just beautiful! Would highly recommend a stay there.

    Accomodations, amenities; I.E. morning breakfast, wine and cheese, friendliness of staff, parking

  • Older travelers

    Proximity to the shopping area. Quite frankly I felt they had inflated the prices for a one night stay because the university that my son attends was having a parents weekend. I felt the hotel was elevating their prices (basically twice the usual rate) only because it was a big weekend with lots of parents coming into town. i find this offensive and taking advantage. Evidently Charleston is famous for variable rates based on the time of year and what is going on in town. Not totally unusual but worse in Charleston than many places.

    We chose Harborview Inn because of its location, ie.,view of the water and within walking distance of everything we wanted to do or see. We were well satisfied with our stay.

    The staff was very friendly and the hotel has wonderful character. They offered wine and cheese in the afternoon and warm cookies and milk before bedtime. We felt like we were being pampered. We will definitely stay there again.
