Old Southern Charm, a city with a long history, and the breathtaking vistas of the forests and beaches lining the Southeastern United States. This is the sort of vibe people seek out when they visit Charleston, South Carolina. With its long, warm Summers and proximity to beautiful Atlantic beaches, Charleston offers a variety of activities for every interest. But if you’re headed to Charleston, you need a place to stay. There’s no better place to take in the views and enjoy the city than the Landmark Suite at the HarbourView Inn, in Charleston, SC.
The Landmark Suite
The Landmark Suite is the perfect place to sit down your suitcase, close your eyes, and breathe in Charleston. In cool earthy and white tones, with a separate bedroom and sitting area, there’s plenty of space to spread out and unwind. Situated on the top floor of the HarbourView Inn, the Landmark Suite boasts two private balconies and a working gas fireplace for those chill winds blowing in off the harbor during a delightful Southern winter.
In the bedroom, a king-sized Tempur-Pedic mattress will soothe away your aches. The sitting room is both classy and elegant, with delicate touches of Charleston charm in every corner. The living room includes a sleeper sofa and, to quote the hotel, “elegant Southern-style furnishings,” a perfect complement to the breathtaking view just outside your window.
Looking down upon Charleston from above is a heady sensation, both connecting you to the history of the city and setting your dreams aloft. The Landmark can accommodate up to three guests and runs around $600-$700 a night.
If you’re looking for something a little more budget-friendly, although $700 a night is a steal for an ultra-lux suite, The HarbourView Inn offers a number of rooms running from the $200 price up to around $500. Each room is carefully appointed with whites and grays, with some boasting exposed brick feature walls. Touches of blue throughout draw the eye to the window and the glistening harbor in the view beyond.
The vibe of the hotel is a blend of modern and zen, with Southern charm. The hotel’s website shares, “HarbourView Inn is a gracious destination offering 52 hotel rooms with brand new armoires, modern tile bathrooms, glass showers, and outdoor balconies with scenic views of Concord Street. In addition to comfortable, Southern-style accommodations, guests can enjoy an outstanding downtown location, complimentary dining experiences, enhanced beverage offerings, and more.”
Situated downtown in the heart of Charleston’s Historic District, is the perfect mix of a boutique hotel and a bed and breakfast, with one-on-one service with a touch of hip and in vogue. The Inn also offers, “complimentary artisanal breakfast delivered in-room, afternoon wine and cheese hour and milk and cookies before bed. The city’s only private rooftop on the water features unobstructed views and nightly rotating programming including live music sessions, local beer & wine sampling and evening skyline tours hosted by a resident historian.”
