I was here for a weekend visit with family who live downtown and decided to stay at The Restoration as I had heard good things about it, I booked a suite which was the size of a 1 bedroom condo with a balcony outside. Very comfortable accommodations but there were a few nicks and dings to some of the furniture...

From calling the hotel to make reservations to the checkout procedure, it was a perfect experience. We could not have been more comfortable in our room. Very spacious. The bathroom was very large & the kitchenette in our room was nice to have over our 5 night stay. Our rate included breakfast which was delivered daily in a picnic basket!...

Great central location in historic Charleston. Recently restored/remodeled. Even studio rooms are very commodious with kitchenette. Complimentary breakfast delivered to door. Rooftop food and drinks. Rooftop pool. Very large three bedroom, three story suite with huge living room and private rooftop patio. Highly recommended.

Second visit here. I would compare this to spending time in someone's condo then staying at a hotel. Stayed in a one bedroom suite with balcony on the older side of the property. Management needs to make some updates. The bed and pillows were extremely uncomfortable and definitely need to be changed out. Carpet was bunched up in the bedroom....

We eagerly looked forward to our stay at the Restoration based on all of the positive comments. The hotel is perfectly located in a small renovated old building and a larger new building. We were excited about the prospect of a centrally located hotel with local charm but new bones. While the place is beautiful and the staff are friendly,...

I originally booked the Restoration a few years ago because they had suites with 2 full bedrooms, a full kitchen, and a living room. They have since expanded, and have 1 bedrooms and flats. They also have a great spa, and a killer restaurant on the roof. I stay at several places in Charleston, but if the price is right,...

We stayed at the Restoration with our young kids for New Years. The one bedroom suite was amazing . I wish would could live there!. The entire space looked out of a magazine yet was comfortable for our little ones. We loved the great staff that helped us plan places to visit for our kids as well as greats spots...

We stayed at the Restoration December 27th- January 1. We stayed in the two bedroom with a kitchen and sitting area. Our daughters are 15 and 18 so location right downtown among the shops was fabulous. The location also allowed us to split up during the day. We had trouble finding the hotel when we arrived at night, but when...

Sounds like it was a good set up for you and your family. The two bedroom suite is definitely the way to go when traveling with a family. We also have a three bedroom suite which is incredible. Maybe one day when the girls don't want to bunk up anymore! It really is so nice to be in walking distance...

This was an extremely attentive staff a beautiful hotel and a great location I lived in Charleston for a year and a half and I'll say that this is a gorgeous example of what Charleston is like. The decorations are amazing and all of the artwork is for sale. The spa treatments were to die for. 100% worth it.
