The room is wonderfully large. Your front room is a full salon and the bedroom is the perfect room. The bathroom has a huge master tub and separate shower. The room has all the amenities you would need! There's even a galley type kitchen, minus a stove but had a full size refrigerator, sink and coffee maker. The only challenge...

This hotel was great. Kevin who helped with our car, bags was excellent. The hotel front desk staff was excellent. We had a bag miss our flight and while we were out to dinner they called us to let us know it had been dropped off. Room was great. Little kitchenette with a fairly large fridge helped with having left...

Outstanding hotel. Centrally located in downtown historic Charleston. Tamara in concierge was super friendly and helpful. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms are new, modern, and large. Bed was super comfortable. Loved the coffee shop. Afternoon wine and cheese, and evening cookies were also very good and a nice touch. Overall, I highly recommend.

Great location just off King St. Studio room was more than enough space for a quick stay and quite comfortable with kitchenette. Hotel staff was warm and welcoming. Rooftop bar Watch was superb. Highly recommended!!

Thank you for the great review!! So glad you were able to visit The Watch during your quick stay. Definitely the best views in the city.

My husband and I celebrate Thanksgiving in Charleston. This year, we decided to forgo the "prefixed" menus and prepare our own dinner. The Restoration allowed us to do so in the comfort of our own condo with a fully equipped kitchen....right down to the wine opener and salt and pepper! The Staff are our number one reason for returning Thanksgiving,...

We absolutely loved our stay here recently. While the room was beautiful and spacious, it was truly the service provided by the staff that made our stay! Everyone from the front desk to the housekeepers were so accommodating and friendly! We will definitely be back for another girls weekend!

This hotel is beautiful and very centrally located to everything on King Street. As soon as we arrived, Kevin took care of our bags and car immediately.

An interaction with Kevin is not a bad way to start your trip so I'm glad he was there to greet you at the door. I'm also glad that you enjoyed your room and the view but I am so sorry that you were bothered by street noise as well as noise above you. Just in case you stay with...

We loved the Restoration hotel! We were enjoying a quick one-night getaway to Charleston and were looking for a place to stay where we could walk to everything we wanted to do---shopping, touring, and enjoying great food!

I spent five days over the recent Thanksgiving week in Charleston, and looked at 3 centrally located hotels where I might stay. I went with The Restoration, which offered me their lowest priced room, the Studio Suite, for $299 per night. This rate fell between that of the other two hotels I looked at, and while not inexpensive, I was...

We had a wonderful time staying at The Restoration. The rooms are beautiful with a somewhat modern industrial feel. A brick wall and barn door accent the space that includes a kitchenette with full stainless steel refrigerator and sink area. The bed was extremely comfortable with luxury sheets and bedding. Lots of pillows too. Drawers were available for storing clothing,...

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
