We stayed three nights at the Restoration on King, a boutique hotel, January 12-14. Originally the Restoration was to be 15 condominiums coming online in late 2008. Not selling, they were turned into an exemplary boutique hotel, with great ambience, quality furnishings, and a caring, knowledgeable, and attentive staff.
One could not ask for more: the hotel is centrally and conveniently located. There are refreshments before and after dinner each day. Like a good restaurant, the staff completed the mosaic of hospitality. Inns and B&Bs would do well to emulate this caring, quality service. Being owners of a small B&B and staying at B&Bs and boutique hotels during the last 40 years, we were so very pleased: this is how it should happen!
In fact, the salient and enduring memory of The Restoration on King is the staff. Howard, the manager, checked to see about our accommodations. Gail and Erick manned the desk; Mark, Marc, and Darren helped with valet and luggage. Pat brought breakfast to the door each morning. Lashondra, Carrie, and Sarah performed room care and turn-down. Amazingly, everyone was a font of credible, in-depth, and knowledgeable information about all aspects of Charleston, significantly increasing our enjoyment of our first visit to Charleston. Suffice it to say, we will stay at the Restoration on King on our inevitable next visit.
