Do yourself a favor and stay at The Restoration. I live a few hours away in Charlotte and I travel to Charleston a couple times a year. This was my first time staying at the Restoration and I'll be back - it's my new favorite hotel in Charleston. This staff is fantastic - from the valet, to the desk, to...

We have been to a lot of great hotels in our life, but this was absolutely the best hotel experience ever. This 54 room hotel provides superior personal service and the rooms are spectacular! Please see our beautiful 1.5 bath room attached. Every morning you pick your own breakfast basket which is delivered at the time of your choice. Devin,...

It was our first trip to Charleston, and we found The Restoration on an internet search. Based on our past experience searching for hotels without friends recommendations, we weren't totally confident it would be a great place, but what a pleasant surprise! Our 2 bedroom suite was very large with a nice patio area, the kitchen had all the bells...

This hotel is beautiful and extremely well located. It needs some work int he service dept. to make it spectacular. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit for four nights. When we arrived, we found that the door to the hall bathroom in the suite did not close. We called the desk and they promised to repair it, but later...

This is a completely unique place and cannot be compared to any other. The buildings and rooms lay-out is quirky, but so well done, with lots of character, high level finishes, and beautiful furnishings. The staff was all outstanding, and the valet / bell service folks in particular were super helpful and friendly. The spa is wonderful; LaShea Simpson, the...

Had the opportunity to stay here for business, I was spoiled. Got the king suite the is on the 6th floor. It was beautiful! First class all the way. I would suggest this place for couples who want to get away but to have great amenities on site. Close to restaurants and shops.

Rooms are huge, well appointed, great beds, up-to-date, with great amenities. Nice centralized location (Wentworth & King). Outstanding breakfast ( we thought it was great). It is a "you order continental breakfast that is delivered in the morning at your selected time. Not your typical continental breakfast. Will stay there again when in Charleston. Staff was very helpful, friendly, and...

I travel to Charleston quite often on business and this time I decided to stay downtown instead of outside. Booked the Restoration Hotel and wow. The hotel lobby is small and the hotel is a bit confusing for a first time visitor but they know this and have someone guide you to the elevator. But the rooms are spectacular and...

My husband and I loved our two nights we spent here. This hotel really has gone above and beyond. They exemplify all the benefits that a boutique can offer: complementary room service breakfast with among the tastiest croissants I've ever had, complementary bikes to explore Charleston, fantastic guest service, complementary nightly wine and cheese, rooftop bar to watch the sunset...

ROK is my favorite place to stay in Charleston. I travel to Charleston quite frequently and consider this to be my home away from home. The front desk and valet staff provided outstanding service. They are always welcoming upon arrival and continue to provide assistance throughout my stay. The rooms are always clean. I love the layout of the original...

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
