Recent guest reviews

This was my first stay at The Restoration. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The room was amazing and the rooftop bar was a real plus! I'll absolutely stay there again.

Stayed in a suite which was beautiful! Had our own deck to enjoy breakfast before starting the day in Charleston. Came to visit my daughter in college, it was a luxurious treat for her, too. Spa was wonderful, food was delicious and the atmosphere was welcoming yet upscale. Can't wait to return!

Downtown location steps from stores and restaurants and only a 15min walk to the harbor and aquarium. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very nice and included free breakfast delivered to your room each morning.

Rooms are spectacular, staff is super friendly, amenities were great. Would go back in a second!

We staid in the newer section. Room was large, bathroom great, refrigerator, micro...everything you needed. Complementary soda's in fridge, basket breakfast was top notch. perfect ten stay.

Awesome Hotel

We were the last ones to check in for the day. They immediately knew who we were and checked in us in quickly, showed us to our room and were so great. We were blown away by the room we booked. Huge room, kitchen area with granite and stainless steel. Brand bew bedding and oh so much room. A lovely breakfast was delivered to us in the morning. And it was all within walking distance of the historical part of Charelston. Loved it.

Great coffee shop next door Friendly, attentive staff Very clean rooms.

My wife and I were in town for an anniversary trip. Nothing special but I told her years ago I'd take her to Charleston one day. Well the hotel was just so phenomenal that she's now saving money so we can go again next year! They were in the middle of remodeling an extension to the hotel that will add some extra rooms, a restaurant and some other amenities. This should be completed by February 2016. Even with the construction going on we had an excellent time! The chocolate chip cookies in the evening were wonderful! Most of what we came there for was within walking distance including the Market Street Sweets store across the street. The room was just so spacious that my wife was amazed. She told me if she had the money she'd just buy a room at this hotel and stay there year round! I don't believe they offer that option, but if she hits the lottery I guess I'll be living in North Carolina by myself. She has NEVER raved this much about any hotel we've stayed in during our entire 27 years of marriage! She used the white noise machine every night and now I have to get her one for Christmas. The last thing that I heard she was calling everyone she knew and raving about the hotel. It was truly worth the experience. The only MINOR drawback was that as other reviewers noted you can hear people in other rooms walking around. I couldn't hear what they were saying, but I could hear them walking around. But this is an old building and given everything else, including the friendliness and can do attitude of the staff, that's the best I can come up with in terms of a criticism. It was truly a memorable experience!

Great hotel with beautiful rooms and more than anything great staff.

The time we spent at Restoration on King was great from beginning to end . The staff were polite and very attentive . The Hotel is a cool boutique hotel . There are currently only 16 rooms . The suite was very large ,more like a one bedroom apartment unlike many suites it had a full kitchen with all full size appliances including an oven ,the bed was very comfortable with upscale linens .the decorating was very nice a loft contemporary type of feel. The location is in the heart of all of the action with many restaurants ,stores and all of the attractions within walking distance. If you were to stay here you don't really need a rental car . We had agreat experience . Will return to the hotel the next time we visit Charleston !

We absolutely loved our stay here. We had a 1 bedroom suite. It had a fashionable kitchen (stainless steel etc), a large living room, huge bathroom and master bed. The stay included a free breakfast every day as well as a newspaper delivered to our door. We had access to an apple tv and an ipad. They serve wine and cheese everyday at 5pm and freshly baked cookies at 8pm. The location is perfect for being in the historic district. Shopping and restaurants everywhere and no need for a car (in fact, I wouldn't recommend it here-you'll pay more in parking fees than it's worth). Honestly, I don't even know if I'd consider staying anywhere else if we go back to Charleston!

The hotel is beautiful, small and personalized. A place where everyone knows your name. The rooms are huge and beautiful set up as individual apartments with complete kitchens. The breakfast is left at your door in a basket (basic continental faire). It is a nice touch. There is wine and cheese in the early evening and then cookies in the late evening. Everyone is willing to help you pick out restaurants, sites to see etc. All in all a superior place to stay well worth the pricetag.

This hotel was AMAZING - beautiful large clean room, full kitchen, nice decent size bathroom and lots of little extras like (free) water and sodas in the fridge, coffee (and full size coffee maker), breakfast (of your choice) delivered each morning in a picnic basket, wine and cheese hour, cookies and milk in the evening. It was everything the website promised and even better in reality! I always try to stay in nice hotels, but I can honestly say this is the first hotel that I had a hard time dragging myself away from - normally it's all about the place I'm visiting - this time I wanted to just lounge and enjoy! On top of all that, the entire staff was friendly and helpful and really went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. I definitely plan to return - next year if not sooner!

I wouldn't mind living there. The suite has everything you need. My only minor issue was that I could hear people walking in the suite above. Try to get a room on the third floor.

We loved staying here, it felt like home!
