First things first...don't let you first impression of the entrance fool you. Looks are deceiving. There is so much to offer inside. Who needs a big fancy lobby when you can have character, comfort, knowledgable and friendly service, and port wine to boot. Room was very clean with extremely comfortable bed, turndown service, chocolate covered almonds. Not your run of the mill hotel chain. Boutique hotel with fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, washer, and dryer. Furnishings were modern with hardwood floors. Enjoyed visiting with other guests and the staff in the lobby and on the rooftop deck. 206, 207, 208 are overlooking king street and there is a bit of noise from traffic at night. Bedroom away from road and noise makers allowed for great sleeping for us. The only negative was the kids running on the hardwood floors make a loud racket. High ceilings resinate the sounds, but a regular hotel room is not soundproof either. Picnic basket breakfasts were preselected the evening before. Menu selection was limited, danishes not great, bagels fresh, fruit ok, coffee hot. Would maybe like to see some different menu options when staying more than 2-3 days. No restaurant on location, but several within walking distance or arrange pickup and staff will deliver upon request (Tom Bodett will not do that, but Howard and the ROK staff would). Walking distance to mostly everything downtown, trolley stop just around the corner. The cost is higher, but the you will have a unique stay at Restoration on King. Would return on next trip to charleston.
