Rooms & Rates

The AAA 4-Diamond HarbourView Inn is aptly named, with a terrific harbor setting overlooking the 8-acre Waterfront Park. It’s pretty handy for city sights too -- Charleston City Market, King Street shops and restaurants and the colorful heritage houses on Rainbow Row are all a 10-minute walk away.

The hotel, a stately, well-maintained brick building, feels more like a B&B than a hotel, although a plethora of free extras and emphasis on service make it a great value stay. Guests can sign up for a free talk about the waterfront district with a local tour guide, which takes place on the hotel’s rooftop terrace on select evenings. In the morning, guests can opt for silver-service breakfast in their rooms, on the terrace or in the lobby.

There’s no restaurant at the hotel, but some of the best dining options in town are just a block away on East Bay Street. McCrady’s is one of the most illustrious, deemed "a saviour of Southern cooking" by The Financial Times for chef Sean Brock’s reimagined classics. At the hotel, there are plenty of nibbles to keep you sated in between meals, including wine and cheese in the afternoons, cookies and milk in the evenings and candy at turndown.

Rooms aren’t notably spacious, but they are charming. All have four-poster beds and hand-crafted armoires, and some have fireplaces. Top-floor Grand HarbourView rooms have balconies overlooking the harbor and Waterfront Park, while Historic rooms charm with high ceilings, plantation-style shutters and original brick walls from the 1830s.

This a great place to stay. The rooms are large and well decorated. The bathroom is large and well lite. There is tea, wine and cheese, cookies and milk served at various times in the day. Breakfast is served in your room. The free trolley stops across the street. Many great restaurants are within 2 blocks - Magnolias, S.N.O.B., Fleet Landing, Southend Brewery (great crabcakes for $10), Fleet Landing. Many others are just a few blocks further.
