“Best Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

My husband and I usually take a beach trip each year in February. This year we decided to go to Charleston. We travel extensively and we both agreed that this was the nicest hotel we have ever stayed in. From the delivery of breakfast in a picnic basket every morning, to various recommendations on restaurants, everything was perfect. The location is amazing and it truly feels like a home away from home.

Restoration on King was the best hotel I have ever stayed at! Everyone could not have been nicer and the location was ideal. We went for a girls weekend and each one of us never wanted to leave! The complimentary breakfast was amazing as was the wine upon arrival! We have already recommended this place to our families and are working on booking for an upcoming wedding. Worth every penny to stay at this place! It really made our vacation!!!!

Stayed here for anniversary. Accommodations were great, staff was great, whole experience terrific. I especially commend the valet staff. There were two different ones and they both went out of their way to help us. Front desk was always available and always pleasant to deal with.

My sister and I were very happy with the digs. We walked into our room 306 and got the tour from a nice gentleman. The online photos did not do the space justice. It is spacious, updated, and comfortable. The open concept in the living space is great. The staff is very friendly, the beds are comfy, and the location is prime. The rooms and building have done a great job mixing the older charm with the new amenities. I would suggest this to friends and will definitely be back. The breakfast baskets are a nice touch every morning. We chose the valet option for an additional $18 per day. They have paid attention to detail by offering a full kitchen, black makeup towels, robes, a morning paper, and nightly wine/cheese and cookies/port. You are truly in the heart of Charleston. You can walk everywhere. It does not feel like a hotel or b &b but more like a condo unit. It is a little home away from home.

I hit Restoration on King on a business trip through the Carolinas. After 6 cities, it was so refreshing to stay in a relaxing, comfortable setting. The staff were amazing, and incredibly accommodating. I'm a traveller, and this is one of the best stays I've ever had. Enjoy!

We stayed at the Restoration for our 15th wedding anniversary. We stayed for three nights and were treated like royals!. Our loft suite which had a charming view of King Street was breathe taking. Upon entering our room we treated with wonderful bottle of champagne and a beautiful handwritten note with best wishes on our wedding anniversary. The staff were so knowledgeable on points of interest and restaurants. A special thanks to Nathaniel who helped us with an itinerary. He was attentive to every detail and made our stay very enjoyable! Our favorite touch was the bicycles. We felt like kids again riding among those majestic homes.

The hotel is perfect for a romantic getaway, family extended say with all the comforts of home right down to the kitchen sink. (literarily) ;-) The room was ultra chic and very clean! The pictures of these rooms are spot on!

The next time we are in Charleston we will be staying at The Restoration!

Stayed at the Restoration this summer for a weekend getaway and loved it so much I sent my parents back for a birthday present for the two of them. Convenient to the best shopping on King and the best restaurants as well. Can't beat a hotel set up as more of a condo, with breakfast in a picnic basket to boot! Didn't take advantage of the bikes or beach chairs while we were there, but plan to on future stays. The only negative I can think of would be the doors(walls) are a bit thin if you are a light sleeper, but is to be expected in an older structure. Worth it for the convenience and charm, not to mention most of the comparable options are outdated.

Room Tip: Higher room if you are a light sleeper - away from street noise and eliminates upstairs neighbors.
