We stayed here mid-week for a date night in Charleston during a longer vacation in Isle of Palms. The hotel is located in an ideal spot close to shops and restaurants, and has a cool sophisticated vibe that feels modern but nods to the area's history. The lobby is small but Kim at the front desk was friendly and helpful...

Sounds like a great vacation!! The best of both worlds, downtown and some quiet beach time. It's so convenient that the travel time from one to another is so brief! You are spot on with the rooms! Our 15 original rooms were built to be sold as condos. Fortunately for us, it didn't go so well so our wonderful guests,...

Everything about this place is a winner...the rooms,the service, the front desk,the ease of valet parking, the location, the free 5PM wine and cheese gathering. How about breakfast every morning brought to the room. Rooftop bar and pool a rel extra. A real treat.

We obviously appreciate your opinion but are clearly disappointed that you were not more impressed with your stay.

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
