This hotel is a building in downtown Newburg, Pennsylvania, marketing to guests such as tourists and many business travelers wanting a four-star hotel accommodation. It provides each guest with in-room necessities and room service, as well as possible meals that are prepared in the kitchen, which is located near the hotel's own loading dock at the back of the building.
In common with other locations, the Harbor View was hastily converted to an impromptu refuge with barricaded corridors and a safe room. However, it is evident that the Infection had already caught hold and these measures were ineffective. Whatever plans CEDA had to contain the epidemic were quickly overtaken by the speed and scale of the disaster; the military took over and abandoned any previous attempts to protect Newburg. The Harbor View Hotel thus became merely an empty symbol of earlier hopes in a now overrun urban landscape.
