We stayed at The Restoration on King for two nights as part of a family vacation with our two twenty-something year old daughters. Two words sum it up - casual elegance. This hotel is absolutely beautiful and well-appointed -- really has to be seen on the inside to be appreciated. In our travels, we have found that having that kind of luxury can also equate to a sense of stuffiness. Not here! It felt easy to kick our shoes off and to sink into the plush chairs in the lobby while enjoying a wine and cheese reception with the other hotel guests. And our room -- no words. We stayed in a two bedroom and two bath two level room with a full Charleston-style side balcony that we thoroughly took advantage of at night to watch the activity on the street below. We wanted for nothing - expect the opportunity to stay in this place for much longer.
The staff could not have been better. Everyone seemed genuinely invested in us having a wonderful stay and had that sense of how to provide friendly, yet discreet service.
The hotel is central to just about everything you would want to see or do in Charleston. If walking is not your thing then there is always a pedi-cab or the DART trolley nearby, but even as a heavy-set middle-aged woman with bad feet, I found it easy to walk to most locations I wanted to go for restaurants, shopping and sight-seeing.
I highly recommend this hotel to anyone, even if your budget allows for only a single night stay. The experience is worth it!
