When you think of romance, one of the cities that comes to mind is Charleston. The perfect setting for romantic films like The Notebook, Dear John and the classic Gone With the Wind (set in the nearby town of Mount Pleasant), Charleston exudes southern charm and romance. Make your vacation to this colourful city with someone special one to remember by booking your stay at the HarbourView Inn.
A Waterfront Escape in Charleston
As Charleston’s only waterfront hotel in the Historic District, the HarbourView Inn brings out the age-old charm of this port city. Each of the Inn’s 52 rooms is uniquely decorated to let visitors travel through time to the Antebellum era. The historic wing houses six rooms that are in high demand because of their unique architectural features. Transformed from a former 1930s cotton warehouse, this hotel is a shining example of how Charleston embraces the charm and design of its past in a modern way. For a truly romantic experience, relive The Notebook by booking their Noah and Allie inspired escape.
What sets the HarbourView Inn apart from other hotels is its southern hospitality giving this luxurious boutique hotel all the charm of a bed and breakfast. From a continental breakfast spread served in the lounge area (or delivered to your room) from Saffron Cafe to the evening tastings and the live music to the freshly baked cookies and milk, the HarbourView Inn has the best parts of Lowcountry living dialled into the guest experience. For guests looking to explore the city, swing by the rooftop for an amazing view of Charleston and evening skyline tours with a local historian or take one of their complimentary bicycles out of a spin.
Go for a Drink at The Spectator
Only a short walk away, The Spectator is the sister property to the HarbourView Inn. Embrace the glamour of the South at The Bar at The Spectator where Cocktail Artisan Allen Lancaster has created a menu of bespoke, seasonal libations for visitors to enjoy. If you’re looking for a little pick-me-up, The Dude Imbibes has been a mainstay on their menu blending a Chai-Vanilla Cathead Vodka with Espresso- St George Coffee Liqueur and some Carolina Cream and almond milk to create the perfect rich and refreshing cocktail.
Lancaster’s cocktails are balanced, yet strong, so be sure to order some small bites to share to round out your evening. The speck taters are one of their more popular items on the menu (and after one bite you’ll see why!) but if you’re looking for something a bit more adventurous, the Devil Made Me Do It hen eggs are a rich and indulgent treat.
