The overall hotel and amenities were good to very good. All staff were courteous and represented the hotel well. The shortfalls of the hotel we encountered were sticky floors in the kitchenette area and bathroom, and there was some visible mold in the grout of the shower.

Very nice hotel. The staff is ridiculously nonchalant and rude. If not for the people that work there, itd be a near perfect stop. Bed is uncomfortable

Great location and Staff

This was the first trip to Charleston. The hotel was truly a treasure. The advise that Richard from concierge gave could not have been better or more helpful. The hotel is located in a quiet street within walking distance to everything. We did not have to UBer or taxi except for airport transfers. We enjoyed the picnic basket breakfast and they were great about bringing more coffee!!! I want to go back as soon as possible!!

The Restoration in Charleston was AWESOME!

Pros: comfort, cleanliness, kitchenette, cookies by bed, sitting area, large bathroom, sparkling water, friendly housekeeping, library
Cons: Cost
Location: Tons of shops and restaurants walking distance.
We loved every part of the experience. We loved all the staff! The ladies at check in were very pleasant and helpful with places to eat. The housekeeping left special treats in our room while we were out to dinner. The library had awesome books while we waited on fresh baked cookies! The room also had sparkling water in the fridge. The room was comfortable and we didn't even want to leave! It is very convenient to everything (walking)!

Luxury at its finest.

Pros: The luxurious, yet zen vibe and amenities.
Location: Carriage tours, plantation tours, boutique shops, the market place, and fine dining.
My wife and I stayed in one of the luxury suites at this hotel and we can't say enough good things about this place! They bring breakfast daily to your room and offer a fine selection of wine/cheese everyday at 5pm. We also took a spin on the bikes they have available and were able to enjoy Charleston's charm. The location of this hotel is prime location and is only a hop, skip, and jump from local beaches. All of the employees were eager to please and were very welcoming. The woman working at the concierge desk (I failed to catch her name) was a super big help to us with her recommendations she had to offer. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in Charleston.
