This is a wonderful hotel. It is well appointed and very comfortable. The staff was attentive and very helpful with all our requests. The hotel is convenient to almost everything you want to do in Charleston. The breakfast delivered in the picnic basket is a great touch.

The hotel was absolutely beautiful, a real downtown feel to it. Photos of a local artist were displayed throughout the hotel, giving it a strong connection to the roots of Charleston. The rooms were very spacious and the administrative representatives, in particular, Sarah and Kathleen, were so friendly and helpful. Every place you'd like to visit is within walking distance...

Great little boutique hotel in the mix of downtown Charleston. Modern, sleek rooms, great amenities (breakfast basket is incl. in the am - AWESOME treat), great service from the staff. Loved the early evening wine and cheese in the Library - fun way to socialize and get to know fellow guests. We stayed in a studio and it was spacious...

Stayed here 3 nights for our anniversary splurge and were graciously upgraded to a one-bedroom suite overlooking King st. Fabulous!

Hubby and I stayed 4 nights at this small hotel. The suite was larger than I expected.

The one bedroom suite was fabulously, the rooftop restaurant wonderful but it was the staff that made our trip incredible. Every single staff person was helpful, cheerful, well-trained, upbeat, and fun! We really appreciated the delicious breakfast delivered to the room. The staff could not have been better!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Newly Opened & Re-Created The Restoration welcomes you to be our guest at our newly expanded location on Charleston's iconic King Street. From food and drinks to culture and boutique shopping, we have recreated history for your enjoyment. Come get inspired and experience what the New South is all about firsthand. See below for more details. A world class hotel isn't just a place to get a good night's rest (or a refreshing afternoon tipple,) it's a meeting ground, a place where unexpected elements come together to delight, inspire and entertain. Uniting classic elegance with a natural and easy going Southern touch, The Restoration translates its hometown's vibrant local history and culture into a casually chic, luxurious hospitality experience. It's relaxed and refined and just a little bit left of center-a world where high meets low meets Low Country. The Restoration is all about community. From locals to international travelers, we provide an immersive, beautifully designed environment for guests to connect and relax. It is this civic-minded, progressive mindset that powers the Restoration brand- from our jewel box inspired spa and farm to table restaurant, to the motorcycles we custom design for guests to ride away on. This is classic Southern Hospitality, modernized with a few twists and expanded to meet and exceed the highest standards of today's luxury traveler. We welcome you to experience The Restoration first hand to see what the New South is all about. ... more   less
