Four of us did a girls trip this past November and stayed at The Restoration. We shared a two bedroom two full bath suite which included kitchen, dining and living room area. This place is simply lovely. They think of EVERYTHING, from large room closet space where you can easily change and dress, to white noise machines in each bedroom....

I had the chance to visit the updated Restoration and was truly impressed. The rooms are great and would be perfect for any of the numerous wedding groups coming to Charleston. Terrific amenities and views from the restaurant. A true gem in Charleston.

My husband and I just got back from a 4 night stay in the newly finished Restoration. The rooms and hotel are really nice. However, the service we received was by far the worst service I have ever received at any hotel! I was actually appalled. The housekeeping does an awful job, definitely bare minimum. Never refilled the kitchenware so...

This year we chose to spend Christmas in Charleston as the family member living there couldn't come HOME. We have spent Spring Breaks on Kiawah Island (in a modest rental through the 2nd gate) but this visit we wanted to create our home for Christmas in the heart of Charleston. The Restoration offered a living room and a full modern...

Three nights of luxury and great service. Excellent view of downtown Charlestown. Get a room with period furnishings. The history and ambience of King street is worth the experience. A magical hotel with tasteful decor and professional staff.

We've been to Charleston about 8 times but first time at Restoration. We were in the original building upgraded to a one bedroom with balcony facing Wentworth Street.

This was our second stay at Restoration. Both times the hotel was very accommodating and very quick to please. Each time we took a one bedroom unit. The first time we had a unit overlooking King Street which was very quiet and this time we had the Wentworth Street unit with a porch. Although the spacious porch is a nice...

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
