Why Stay At The Restoration on King
Located on historic King Street, this boutique hotel features beautifully designed luxury suites, a charming and attentive staff, and great locale for shopping, dining, and seeing Charleston's historic sites.
Though less ornate than some of Charleston's other top inns, the Restoration on King epitomizes Southern hospitality: fresh muffins, fruit, and bagels are delivered each morning in a picnic basket, wine and cheese are served in the lobby, and the nightly turndown service leaves behind cold milk and chocolate chip cookies from the Charleston Cookie Company. Following a complete overhaul in 2011, the red brick building—set on one of Charleston's main streets—is equally as notable as the at-your-service staffers; the 16 suites have spacious terraces and exposed-brick walls for an unexpected urban edge among downtown's 19th-century buildings. And the hotel's location, right in the heart of the historic district, means that City Market, the colorful homes of Rainbow Row, and Battery Park are just short, cobblestoned walks away.
Come evening, head to the rooftop bar at the nearby Vendue Inn for sunset views of Fort Sumter and the Ravenel Bridge.
Send a shopping list to the staff before arriving and they'll stock your in-room fridge with your favorite snacks.
Arrive at Charleston International Airport (CHS), which is approximately 15 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 30 minutes of travel time.75 Wentworth Street, Charleston, South Carolina, United States
