Girls weekend in Charleston. We loved the location of the Harbour View. Right on the harbor (of course) and close to the city market, restaurants and free shuttle right out front to take you across town. Hotel staff very accommodating and informative. Brought a welcome cocktail to our room when we arrived. Evening turndown service and chocolates. We will stay here again for sure!

Great Location

Cons: It was really hot when we were thee and the air conditioning in the room struggled to keep up.
The location was perfect for walking around the French Quarter and the harbor view. Very friendly staff. Love the breakfast in your room and the cheese and wine on Friday.

Pros: Its location provided lovely views of the harbor and a short walking distance to shops and restaurants.
The room was beautiful and comfortable. The staff went out of their way to be helpful. And we were delighted with the complimentary breakfast which could be delivered to room, roof terrace, or atrium.
