“Most Fabulous Weekend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

This was the perfect place for our annual girls' weekend getaway. The staff (thank you Nathan and Ashley) was super friendly, accommodating and helpful to meet our special requests. We booked the Girls' Getaway Package, and it was perfect. Mani/Pedis for all, a catered lunch, delicious dinner at Muse, wine and cheese reception...what more could you ask for? The room was fabulous, had plenty of space for the 5 of us and overlooked King Street. The location was close to everything. We walked everywhere. I will definitely be back...maybe for a weekend getaway with my husband next time :-)

Nicest hotel I've stayed at in the area, and I've stayed at quite a few nice ones (Charleston Place, Market Pavilion, Vendue, etc). Gorgeous urban renewal. Beautiful interior, exposed brick. Full kitchens. Laundry machines. Worth every penny. Location is amazing. Only downside: they charged the wrong credit card (the room was prepaid via another method of payment, and they charged the credit card saved for incidentals). That being said, the staff is working with me to reverse the charge.

Love love loved The ROK!! My husband and I stayed at The ROK following our wedding. This boutique hotel was exquisite...from the urban chic decor with a historical Charleston B&B feel, we were in heaven. The service was phenomenal, each concierge made us feel right at home. One of our favorite memories, was pre-ordering our breakfast in the evening, then waking up to a large picnic basket at our door filled with our our delicious spread of goodies. The concierge arranged everything from an in room couple's massage to a carriage ride, bike rentals, dinner reservations and even in room dining from the restaurant of our choice, not to mention that I was able to check out a complimentary Apple laptop they have reserved for guests to use during their stay, what more can you ask for! We even had the opportunity to meet the owner Howard, who was so gracious and welcoming. We loved the kitchen with all the bells and whistles, the cozy living room area, and our spacious contemporary bathroom. Our favorite spot for a night cap was The ROK roof top that offered cozy contemporary furniture, overlooking the heart of downtown Charleston on King Street. The ROK was definitely a highlight of our wedding weekend and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for a little piece of heaven in beautiful Charleston!

Room Tip: Corner Suites will give you a great view of King Street, we had no issues with street noise

The suites are beautiful, and the amenities from complimentary cookies and milk at bedtime to basketed breakfast delivery are wonderful! Very centrally located, and the rooftop terrace topped all those we visited in Charleston. Would revisit again and again!

We loved ROK and will most certainly stay there again next time we are in Charleston. We had a beautiful 2BR suite, perfectly appointed and extremely comfortable, like you are in your own Charleston condo. The exposed bricks, modern decor, spacious living area, large bathrooms and roof deck make this hotel very special. They also have extra touches like nightly wine and cheese reception, cookies and milk (or port wine) after dinner, and breakfast delivered to your door each morning. The staff was also helpful and friendly, from the GM to the housekeepers. A great place in a fabulous location.

Loved the location and the folks running it, but the jean store below with pounding rock music, the bar next door with noisy revelers and bottle recycling and the nightly garbage pickup and street cleaning meant there was never enough quiet there to get any sleep. Loved Charleston and its many great restaurants, but won't stay here again since we all need some rest!

Room Tip: Get something high and away from the street if possible.
