We just got back from our third trip to Charleston. Gosh, I love that city.

We stayed with my parents in a 2-bedroom suite at Restoration on King. Of all the places we've stayed in Charleston, this was easily our favorite.

The hotel is in a great location, as many have said. You are literally RIGHT on King St., the higher-end commercial center of the city. We were never more than a 10-15 minute walk away from any of the places we visited or ate at. The location also feels very safe.

Even though you are in the middle of it all, RoK feels very private and exclusive. It is a small boutique hotel, and we really enjoyed feeling like we had the place to ourselves. We only ever saw other guests a few times.

As for the decor, the rooms are beautifully furnished. They are modern but comfortable, new but charming. You really feel like you are staying in someone's personal condo and not in a hotel. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need, the beds were extremely comfortable, and the bathrooms are modern and clean.

The amenities the hotel offers really are what puts it a league above the rest, though. First, there are multiple snacks offered to guests throughout the day: coffee in the morning, wine and cheese in the early evening, and warm cookies and milk at night. Our favorite thing, though, was that they delivered breakfast in a picnic basket each morning. The menu for breakfast offers a good bit of variety, the quality is just fine, and they bring it right to your room at whatever time you specify. It was so nice to sit around the living room in the morning, drinking coffee and eating our pastries.

There's also an iPhone app, iPads for guests to use, umbrellas available, etc. It's obvious that the hotel has the guests' happiness and comfort in mind, and it was nice to be pampered.

Our only complaint was that the walls are pretty thin. We stayed in a suite on the 2nd floor, and we could hear loud walking/cleaning early each morning. Also, we could easily make out every word on our neighbor's TV.

That said, without hesitation, we would stay at RoK again. It's a special hotel in a very special city, and we much enjoyed our visit.

My college roommates and I stayed in 2 of the 2 bedroom suites and we loved it. Our suites were like very well-appointed condos and ROK offers lots of amenities, which is appropriate because the rooms are pricey. They do wine and cheese in the afternoon and cookies in the evening. They deliver a free breakfast to your room which was delicious and bountiful. The staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. I would highly recommend ROK. You can walk to everything from here.

This hotel is amazing. I loved the rooms with the exposed brick and the amazing decor. The beds were so comfortable and the sound machines in every bedroom was relaxing ! The staff was fantastic. We enjoyed the wine and cheese hour daily. They have a great rooftop to enjoy your wine and appetizers. You can walk everywhere! They have a great breakfast spread that is delivered in a wicker basket and left at your door. I can't wait to go back!

We stayed in Charleston at the Restoration on King (ROK) for three nights. The attention to detail was evident everywhere from the minute we got there to our departure. Our apartment was large and very comfortable. We enjoyed wonderful breakfasts each morning, wine and cheese each afternoon,fresh baked cookies in the evening and a wonderful night sleep. The staff was welcoming and very helpful with all our request, helping us select great resturants and plan our activities. They also shipped a package for us that we could not take back on the plane.The location is great. We could not have ask for a more perfect trip.

Room Tip: Our room faced Wentworth Street and was very quiet. Ceiling to floor windows admitted lots of light.

My husband and I spent last week here for our yearly getaway and so glad we picked this hotel. This is such a unique place to stay -each room is actually an extremely large loft-like apartment with living room, full kitchen, bed and bath. If you want to get away from the standard hotel room, pick this place. The exposed brick walls with modern, but comfy furniture was just the atmosphere we were looking for. The bed was amazingly comfortable and the linens were very high quality. They offer a pillow menu, but we didn't use it as what was on the bed suited our tastes. Little perks like the breakfast picnic basket (scones and muffins could have been better - perhaps get them from Wildflour?? - a gem of a little spot down the way we discovered) or if Sugar (an amazing cupcake shop down the road we came across made scones or muffins - I would get them from there!). Anyhow, the bagels and smoke salmon that were in the basket were amazing and the coffee is great quality and it appears and smells to be freshly ground. The hotel offers a nightly wine and cheese reception in the lobby every night - please don't miss it! The smoked gouda cheese and the prosciutto paired with the wine is a great app before heading out on the town. Not to mention the company of the staff and the general manager who are very welcoming and are there nightly, which add to the camaraderie of the visitors. Another great perk -late in the evening, they put out cookies and biscotti - now, that is a hotel that recognizes that little luxuries is what life is all about. Valet was super fast and affordable.

Room Tip: We had a view of King street and loved it
