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... More

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... More

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.

Given the price of this hotel, I hold it to a higher standard than a Hampton Inn. So, that said, the good: Excellent Location! Super friendly and helpful staff! Great restaurant that just opened! And very nice condo/suite that was comfortable and nicely furnished. THAT said...here is the bad! The housekeeping is terrible, and maintenance is sorely lacking! I took... More

Only had some drinks and appetizers but if they were a reflection of the hotel you are in for a treat.Tamara, at front desk, was friendly and... More

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. The third floor condo & balcony were huge & nicely furnished. They were opening the new building that week & there were a few snafu's but I would absolutely go back. Our... More

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... More

Overall I thought The Restoration on King was a good experience. The rooms are very unique in that they are more like huge loft apartments equipped with a full kitchen, washer/dryer and everything else you can possibly imagine. Overall it was pretty clean (aside from the construction that was taking place) however there was a smell of what seemed like... More
