About
Description
The only luxury boutique hotel in downtown Charleston with classically-trained butlers for a premier service, both attentive and individualized. A perfectly curated combination of Historic Charleston ...More charm and luxurious urban amenities, The Spectator Hotel is just steps away from iconic destinations and award-winning cuisines. Distinctive guest rooms and suites exude 1920s glamor, with a refreshingly modern take. Local Southern Lady Mattresses and luxurious linens offer sumptuous slumber; and a gourmet continental breakfast delivered to your door each morning. Elegance over excess, discreet service over gaudy sensation, we anticipate our guests’ desires and service their every need, so they can look and feel their very best. Less
