“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

My husband and I have stayed in one of their apartments twice and just love it. It is in downtown Charleston within walking distance to everything. The apartments are well appointed with all the amenities of home. Breakfast is delivered to your door each morning and is delicious. Service is superb. I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: We like a lot of space so we chose the 2 bedroom with private patio.

ROK is the best of both worlds, giving you the five star service of a great hotel and the comfort of your own space. Huge rooms and beautiful modern decor, leaving nothing to be desired. Even the chocolate covered almonds at bedtime are perfect and plentiful, just like the hotel itself. This was my second time this year and Ill come back. The location is as good as it gets. Right in the center of town. The staff is so friendly and helpful too. It's perfection!

Coolest apart hotel, smack in the middle of it all. Second visit. Great for group vacations. Staff are always helpful.
This is a real simple winning set up.
No hideous thronging lobby. No queuing to be seated do breakfast. Just great little breakfast hampers delivered and taken in the comfort of ones own warehouse space. Ah, Zen.

An absolute gem of a place. The attention to detail left nothing to be desired. From the wonderful, large rooms to the gracious and professional staff, Restoration hits ALL the marks. The exposed brick walls and the modern furniture/fixtures were the perfect blend of contemporary and historical. Every staff member we encountered was helpful, professional and kind. Darrin was a stand-out among a wonderful staff. We will certainly stay @ Restoration on King again. Kudos on a job well done.

We were traveling around South Carolina and Georgia without reservations in October. We found as we drove around that finding accomadations at the last minute was somewhat difficult. We felt incredibly lucky to score a room at The Restoration. We saw on TripAdvisor it had a perfect rating and couldn't believe it. We travel extensively and have never seen a perfect rating for a hotel in a city we were in. This place is as wonderful as all the reviews indicate. The rooms are huge and have all the many amenities you have in your own home. Everyone we had contact with was gracious, warm, and provided exceptional service. The evening wine and cheese is fabulous and perfect way to start the check in. We will be back to SC just to stay at The Restoration.

We love the location and the amenities of Restoration On King - especially the breakfast picnic basket delivered to our room. The two bedroom suite was incredibly spacious and beautifully decorated. The exposed brick and high ceilings from the original building give the space a historic feel, but the modern decor has an urban vibe. It was so much fun to sit in the living room and watch all the activity out on King Street. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. This hotel is a real gem, and our stay could not have been better. We definitely will be back and will stay longer next time!

Room Tip: Room 205 is on the corner of King and Wentworth so is great for people watching. Room 201 has its o...

I saw that a couple of people rated ROK as average and I can not imagine what they were expecting. Are there are couple of small details that could be more refined? Yes, there are a couple of small fixtures and details that are not up to the overall design standard. I guess if you like a traditional hotel layout this might not be for you but the rooms are huge, the kitchens are great and overall architecture is both impressive and cozy. The bed is amazing and the balcony a wonderful surprise. Also, the location is down-right perfect.

Room Tip: My suggestion is to get the biggest room you can afford and reserve the bicycles early. Also, do no...
