We stayed at this location for 4 days. The service was great. The rooms are spacious and well kept. The property is only 9 minutes walking to the market and a little more than that to the water. The breakfast at your door is excellent to wake up to every morning. Great bar on the 7th floor. We totally enjoyed...

Hey husband and I recently stayed at the restoration for a short getaway to Charleston and fell in love with the hotel from the moment we arrived. The staff is so friendly, and the room was gorgeous! When we first walked into our room we thought we had been upgraded to a suite as the room was huge. It had...

My husband and I were getting away for a couple days without our kids. While looking for a spa, it was recommended we try The Restoration, since their brand new spa, Amethyst,opened up. The price of the room was reasonable, and the hotel was very nice for us. The room was spacious, clean and had simple elegance. The temperature control...

Spent 5 days in Charleston with my daughter. We loved the city and LOVED staying at the Restoration. We booked a suite, had a large living room with full kitchen (well worth it) and had 3 large windows looking out on King's Street.

I got back from the Restoration last week and I must say that it was fantastic. We had the deluxe one bedroom suite which was huge!

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
