This hotel was everything and more than the website and reviews can allow you to imagine! After a long day of driving, we had trouble finding the hotel coming from one direction so I called to confirm we were looking in the right spot. The manager came out to wave us down and welcome us to the hotel. That personal...

My family and I decided to spend the long Easter weekend at The Restoration. The hotel and its staff far exceeded our expectations. Our suite was amazing reflecting a mix of old Charleston and new contemporary furnishings. On top of that, all of the staff from the front desk hosts to the house keepers were all very friendly and attentive....

My wife and I booked two nights at the Restoration based on TripAdvisor reviews. What a great choice. The Restoration is a boutique hotel in the heart of historic Charleston: great location, wonderful facilities, and spectacular hospitality and customer service. Truly prepare to be pampered. Everything about our two day experience was spectacular.....the interactions and advice from staff, the food...

We spent an anniversary weekend at The Restoration and it was absolutely perfect; from the bottle of champagne in our room upon arrival, to the super cute picnic basket breakfast, a spacious suite stocked with coffee and snacks, to cute bikes to cruise around on during our car-less/carefree weekend in Charleston, we loved it all and will definitely be back!

For my first ever visit to Charleston, I wanted to avoid chain hotels and stay in the historic peninsula district. After much research (which of course included TripAdvisor), I decided to split my stay between 2 hotels with very different vibes. The Restoration was the first. An unknowing passerby would probably assume The Restoration consisted solely of the modern building...

Centrally located, newly expanded, tastefully-decorated spacious rooms, friendly staff and a great rooftop bar! It's a winning combination! We've visited Charleston several times but only recently discovered The Restoration.

I'm not a fan of franchise hotels that shuffle you through their routines and the The Restoration certainly is apart from that mess. This was our second time staying at The Restoration and we really enjoyed it. All rooms are unique and very clean. We had a 2 bedroom suite this time and it had a very large living room...

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
