My husband & I stayed 3 days and 2 nights at the lovely The Restoration. We were in a studio suite on the 6th floor. Beautiful clean room with an extremely comfortable king bed and feather pillows. There is a sofa, full size refrigerator, microwave and wet bar in the suite. The bathroom has a nice size rainfall shower with... More

The Restoration is a beautiful boutique hotel my girlfriend had been dying to visit from all the research she had done. The place is usually booked, so we felt lucky to get an extended weekend in late October. Things started great because we had an early morning flight into Charleston and they had a studio available when we arrived. The... More

The Restoration lives up to the hype, the rankings, and the buzz. It really is the quintessential new Southern romantic boutique hotel. The location is perfect. The staff truly cares about guests. The studio suite is the perfect room with a full fridge. The offering of sparking and still water in the room is a great touch as are the... More

Let me first start by saying I am a Charleston local and over the past 8 years, i regularly take my (now) wife downtown to stay at nice hotels for special occasions.

It's very rare that a hotel owner gets everything right, but The Andersons, who own The Restoration, are among the few who do. We stayed in the "new" part, Room 531 for a long weekend. Our thoughts: the most comfy mattress; spectacular bathroom with soaker tub and large shower; luxury bath products; kitchenette; amazing décor; nice picnic-basket breakfast delivered at... More

This is a very special hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our 5 days in Charleston. The location was quiet yet just blocks from all the action and history.

We loved our recent 3 night stay at the Restoration in Charleston. When we are spending more than one night in a hotel, we always prefer a suite. Our suite at the Restoration was terrific.

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
