First time in Charleston and we couldn't have been happier with our hotel choice. Location was perfect. Rooms were huge. Breakfast basket was a sweet touch. Staff were incredibly friendly and thorough. If we go back to Charleston - we'd stay at The Restoration on King again. Don't miss out on the roof top eat/drink spot called The Watch. GREAT...

We saw an ad for Restoration in the American Airlines magazine. We were in a very noisy spot in Mt. Pleasant and booked Restoration spur of the moment. It was perfect! The room was beautiful!!!

As other reviews have noted, this place is a gem. I'm always a bit skeptical of glowing reviews but The Restoration's reviews were spot on. The location is perfect, a few steps off of King Street with lots of stores and restaurants. It's an easy walk to the Market and to Bay Street with many more restaurants. It's close to...

First of all, I'll never stay anywhere else in Charleston except The Restoration. Located just off King Street in the heart of the action, this property has everything you'd want. The lobby is quite understated, more of a factor of the space available in those old, historic buildings than anything else. The rooms are spacious and gorgeous. We stayed in...

Stayed here 2 nights in a signature suite. It was like having my own luxury apartment. Service is excellent. Complimentary wine and cheese in afternoon and breakfast brought to your room in a picnic basket. Less than 5 mins walking distance to king street, the main street for shopping. Can't wait to return.

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
