Travelers' Choice
The only luxury boutique hotel in downtown Charleston with classically-trained butlers for a premier service, both attentive and individualized. A perfectly curated combination of Historic Charleston charm and luxurious urban amenities, The Spectator Hotel is just steps away from iconic destinations and award-winning cuisines. Distinctive guest rooms and suites exude 1920s glamor, with a refreshingly modern take. Local Southern Lady Mattresses and luxurious linens offer sumptuous slumber; and a gourmet continental breakfast delivered to your door each morning. Elegance over excess, discreet service over gaudy sensation, we anticipate our guests’ desires and service their every need, so they can look and feel their very best.

Hotel's Favorite
We were looking for a short isolation getaway to Charleston and this was our second stay at The Spectator Hotel. It did not disappoint. In addition to their already "over the top" service, the hotel and staff had implemented safely measures that made us feel very comfortable with our decision. Days before our arrival, I spoke with Nick, the concierge, to ask about the protocols. He was very helpful and professional. Everyone was masked up and you couldn't miss all the hand sanitizing stations and packets. Enough about Covid though. The Spectator has beautifully appointed rooms and I even inquired about the manufacturer of the mattress. It is so comfy, I think I just might have to have one. They have superb butlers (thanks David), great in-room breakfast options, and the Spectator bar is one of my favorites in all of Charleston. The ambience is very relaxing and the craft cocktails by Alan and his crew are top notch. The location is perfect for walking to all your favorite spots. I love this hotel and can't wait to return. Cannot recommend enough. Thanks to everyone for a memorable stay.

Elegant hotel in the heart of Charleston. One does not have to worry about anything and all costs are included. From the butler, to the room maids, to the snacks and free arrival drink. More service and hospitality than a cruise ship. (Dinner not included, I think).

We were delighted that we chose The Spectator for our stay in Charleston. It’s a beautiful hotel in a great location. The staff was friendly, efficient and courteous and the rooms were lovely. We enjoyed the convenience of having a delicious complimentary breakfast delivered to our room every morning and most importantly, the bed and linens were extraordinarily comfortable! I would certainly recommend this hotel to friends.
