I stayed at this hotel with my wife and three year old for three nights in July. The experience was excellent from beginning to end. Welcome and check-in was friendly and efficient. Our room was larger than expected with small kitchenette, living room, bedroom (separated by a half-wall), half bath and full bath with shower and deep tub. We'd requested...

This hotel is located in the heart of King St. shopping and restaurants and is clean and new with spacious rooms. Ours had a kitchen area and I believe all rooms do. The breakfast is delivered to the room (instead of having a restaurant). Valet Kevin was especially helpful in providing the information and assistance we needed to get around...

Clean room that is up to date, but the couch in our room needs some TLC - some steam cleaning given the light upholstery color. Staff is really polite and helpful. Breakfast (incl. for our booking) was not fancy but reliable and good quality and BTW delivered to the room! Valet for car was great and location really couldn't be...

The room was beautiful, clean and big. Loved everything about this hotel. It was a little more expensive than some of the other hotels but worth it.

We did not stay here, but went with friends for a drink or two. Very nice renovation, and excellent location. The rooftop bar/cafe is excellent. Staff is very attentive and friendly. Drink menu is very good. Great views of the city, with a nice, semi casual atmosphete. Looks like it would be a cool place to stay.

On a Friday evening we went to the hotel's rooftop bar and sat outside on the patio. It being a very hot day, siting outside was more pleasant as the sun went down. We enjoyed an assortment of appetizers, the drinks and the service were good, and we will certainly return.

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
