Outstanding hotel. Centrally located in downtown historic Charleston. Tamara in concierge was super friendly and helpful. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms are new, modern, and large. Bed was super comfortable. Loved the coffee shop. Afternoon wine and cheese, and evening cookies were also very good and a nice touch. Overall, I highly recommend.

Great location just off King St. Studio room was more than enough space for a quick stay and quite comfortable with kitchenette. Hotel staff was warm and welcoming. Rooftop bar Watch was superb. Highly recommended!!

Thank you for the great review!! So glad you were able to visit The Watch during your quick stay. Definitely the best views in the city. Sounds like you stayed on our new side, next time you should check out our original building. They are full apartment style suites with full kitchens and amazing views or King Street and Wentworth...

My husband and I celebrate Thanksgiving in Charleston. This year, we decided to forgo the "prefixed" menus and prepare our own dinner. The Restoration allowed us to do so in the comfort of our own condo with a fully equipped kitchen....right down to the wine opener and salt and pepper! The Staff are our number one reason for returning Thanksgiving,... More

We absolutely loved our stay here recently. While the room was beautiful and spacious, it was truly the service provided by the staff that made our stay! Everyone from the front desk to the housekeepers were so accommodating and friendly! We will definitely be back for another girls weekend!

This hotel is beautiful and very centrally located to everything on King Street. As soon as we arrived, Kevin took care of our bags and car immediately. He then took us to our room and ensured that everything met our expectations. We joked that he must live there as we saw him almost everyday and he always greeted us with... More

We loved the Restoration hotel! We were enjoying a quick one-night getaway to Charleston and were looking for a place to stay where we could walk to everything we wanted to do---shopping, touring, and enjoying great food! The staff warmly welcomed us, gave us a tour of the hotel and took us to our room. There was a good size... More

I spent five days over the recent Thanksgiving week in Charleston, and looked at 3 centrally located hotels where I might stay. I went with The Restoration, which offered me their lowest priced room, the Studio Suite, for $299 per night. This rate fell between that of the other two hotels I looked at, and while not inexpensive, I was... More

We had a wonderful time staying at The Restoration. The rooms are beautiful with a somewhat modern industrial feel. A brick wall and barn door accent the space that includes a kitchenette with full stainless steel refrigerator and sink area. The bed was extremely comfortable with luxury sheets and bedding. Lots of pillows too. Drawers were available for storing clothing,... More

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
