    • Liked: Staff & service

    What I liked was the front desk staff and valets. They were always friendly and alert to our presence. The one bedroom was very cute, well-decorated and charming. What I didn’t like was how EXTREMELY noisy it was in the room. I could hear every step the people above me took. We even moved rooms and it was worse. Ryan, the manager was very sympathetic and tried to help but honestly, the only real resolution was to give up our room for a lesser room which I didn’t feel was a good solution. Also, housekeeping was terrible. Our bed was never made from scratch. The bathroom toiletries and supplies were never replaced and cleaning rags were left behind. We stayed five nights and got one chance at mouthwash, etc. Even towels were only replaced on demand. Truthfully, every request took an inordinate amount of time to be fulfilled. I could not recommend this hotel for noise and housekeeping. However, the staff is outstanding. If you only care about being well-greeted and about great staff attitude, this place is for you. The lemonade and fruit-infused water in the lobby is a nice touch. Overall, the value vs cost is not there and I would stay somewhere else in Charleston next time.

    Ok for the money

    Booked a staycation, we like to check out the new hotels and restaurants downtown. The Restoration was decorated nicely, but was not on par with other like properties. Why? Wine and cheese reception - small platter left out with some bottles of wine to serve yourself, but when I mentioned they were out of crackers some guy just came by and emptied a bag of something on the tray. Elevators slow...and joked about by all we met on the ride. Heating and a/c were not working properly on our hallway and room. Never got up to 72 degrees in the room and the hallway thermostat read 46 on the chilly morning we left. Shower door didn’t close right. Hot water took awhile. Long story short...maintenance issues to clear up. Location was lovely, bed comfy, coffee excellent (even though the continental breakfast was so-so).

    Perfect romantic getaway

    Would highly recommend - this hotel was awesome. Our room/bathroom was awesome & golf cart shuttle service within 1 mile of the hotel was an added perk! Would definitely stay here again.

    pleasant hotel, great location

    Very nice hotel with boutique feel. It was a very comfortable stay overall. Location is excellent. Very quiet, friendly staff. Municipal parking is nextdoor $1 per hour, $18 per day.
