Apart from some difficulty in driving to the exact location, everything else worked really well (apart from some errors for breakfast on one day). Our room(s) were magnificent, probably appropriate if we had been staying for a week or two, but a little over the top for our short stay needs. Management and staff tried successfully to make us welcome... More

We had a great stay here as a family. Superb and stylish apartment in a great location. Full kitchen and good breakfast basket. I'd received an email about building work to the hotel that had worried me but I didn't notice a thing. We checked in past midnight with lots of luggage, beach bags and tired kids but nothing was...

We stayed here in August 2014 with our two sons. (4 and 6) What the pictures and website can tell you is that it is a beautiful boutique hotel in the middle of historic Charleston. What the pictures can't tell you is how amazing the service and atmosphere is. Howard and his staff have created a wonderfully quiet and inviting... More

A South Carolina Native, this place made me feel right at home. Clean, spacious, modern meets historic. Brick walls, high ceilings, luxurious beds and bathrobes. Relaxing sit down shower. Breakfast picnic basket made my Birthday so special and inviting. Thank you guys so much! A trip downtown Charleston and a day trip to folly, this is a place to definitely... More

My daughter treated us for a three night stay in Charleston. I could not brag enough about it to my family and friends. Amazing accommodations, even more amazing staff, perfect location - and delicious breakfast and other amenities. This will become our annual getaway on the way to Hilton Head Island! Love, Love, Love it! Maria T.

This beautifully restored hotel exuded a combination of storied history along with modern comfort and stylish design. My husband and I commented several times that we'd like to live in the hotel! The breakfast selections in the picnic basket delivered to the room were fresh and tasty. The wine and cheese reception was a nice touch and gave us the... More

This is our 2nd time staying at the ROK....and it won't be our last.Quite simply, the rooms look and feel nothing like your average hotel, upscale or otherwise...it feels much more like staying in a friend's condo (if your friend happened to be a millionaire with a spotless, impossibly hip and luxurous condo, that is). With a family of four,... More

Four of us had a wonderful two-night stay here. The rooms are luxuriously spacious, and the full kitchen and separate bedroom definitely come in handy. The hotel goes above and beyond to accomodate the guests, including afternoon wine and cheese hour, fresh baked cookies, and breakfast delivered in a picnic basket. The rooftop was another great amenity that we really... More
