“Our wedding weekend"WOW"”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

We stayed at restoration on king during 2012 Christmas Holiday and fell in love with it ...Guess what my partner decides to get married in Charelston,June 2013 ...
Call book they are full and place name on waiting list and guess what call back we can accomodate you .
The only request was with a balcony...Arrive and wife is blown away as great room and balcony.
We meet the GM again howard and he says welcome back ...Customer service is second to known and Darren the concerige is first class beyone belief.
Looking forward not only to our next RESTORATION but more important one of the best boutique hotlels in the US....

This is the perfect hotel if you want to feel like you actually live in the city. It is in the heart of the historic district in the middle of all the restaurants, bars, shops and historic homes.
Everything about this hotel is first class. The linens are delightful and the bed very comfortable. They even provide a top of the line sound machine by the bed. The decor is both stylish and comfortable. The staff will set up an Apple TV or provide you with an iPad for use during your stay. Bottled water and sodas are included in your refrigerator and they have wine and cheese as well as milk and cookies in the evening. I would highly recommend this lovely hotel for a great Charleston experience.

I took my wife to Charleston for her Birthday and after reading several reviews on Trip Advisor decided to stay at the "Restoration on King". I feel that my title says it all. What a great place. From the time we walked into the lobby to the time we departed it was a very pleasurable experience. The entire staff was extremely helpful in giving us recommendations for dining and sightseeing and they were eager to assist in anyway possible to take the burden off of us. The property is small and quaint, and that's a good thing. There is not a lot of hustle & bustle there. Our three days were very quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. It is in a wonderful location and centrally located in the historic district. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Our room was outstanding. We loved the exposed brick wall and wood floors (some complained that they were creaky--hey, that's part of the charm). The bedding was very comfortable, the kitchen and living areas were perfect. We never heard any annoying sounds during the night and definitely did not find the walls to be paper thin. Our room as well as the rest of the property was spotless. The delivered continental breakfast was perfect and a very nice touch. It comes in a large basket and you have the option of accepting it or having it left by the front door. The wine & cheese in the afternoon was delightful and it is a good opportunity to sit and talk with the hotel staff on duty. There is also cookies and milk later on in the evening. We cannot say enough good things about the ROK. We sincerely appreciate all of the efforts by it's staff and without a doubt, will stay there in our future visits to Charleston.

We stayed here for the Memorial Day holiday and this boutique hotel is terrific! Staff is super friendly and we can't thank them enough for their wonderful hospitality. We got the two bedroom suite and it was perfect for a couples weekend away. The common area is perfect for a lazy morning hangout as well as after a full day out and about in the city. I would definitely recommend this hotel and we will stay here again next time we are back to Charleston. Love this hotel!!

My highest recommendation mainly due to the manager Howard Letts....he gets it.

We were staying at another recommended hotel that was terrible and while exploring the city on foot we stumbled upon this place.

Room, staff, cleanliness and attentiveness are first rate.

Note: The view from room 301 does look upon some power wires but one only has to embrace that for its chic.

Me and my wife stayed at ROK for our 25th wedding anniversary. What an amazing place, the decor is wonderful and the staff was great. It is also conveniently located for shopping and dining. We were able to walk to most of the things we wanted to see and do. We stayed in a 1 bedroom studio that was just right for us, the kitchen was well equipped with glasses, plates, coffee maker..I could go on and on. We also really enjoyed the basket breakfast every morning, so cool. All of the staff was great from bellhop to house keeping to front desk everyone was great. I would definitely recommend ROK.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking King Street have a great view.

The Restoration on King was so much fun, we were warmly welcomed and shown to a fabulous room with a full kitchen, living room and separate bedroom. It is huge and the washer and drier are in the room complete with detergent. We could have easily lived here. The breakfast selection was huge and they will deliver as much as you want each day. The front desk helped with any questions and sight seeing arrangments. The valet parking is more than worth the $18 daily charge. This is just a great place, I would love to stay again!
