Charleston comfortPosted Jul 14, 2014
Cons: The Restoration is in the midst of a major expansion. We hope that, once completed, it will not destroy the homey atmosphere.
Location: The Restoration is in the heart of all that's happening in Charleston. We walked to many great restaurants and shops.
We loved The Restoration on King. The hotel rooms are former condos. Ours was beautiful and included a beautiful bedroom, huge shower, large living room and full kitchen. We can't wait to return.

I rate the staff, acomodations, amenities, and location a "10"!! We had lots of space to spread out, comfy beds, gorgeous decor, bikes to borrow, valet parking, breakfast included which arrived every morning at your door, and most hospitable staff ever!!! you're missing out, if you don't stay at the Restoration on King, Charleston!!

An apartment in the middle of prime areaPosted Jun 6, 2014
Very nice, nearly new. Location is walkable to most of prime Charleston, especially shopping. Staff is attentive, but not the services of a larger hotel. Breakfast basket is a great touch, pastries should be special given the local bakeries, but are very ordinary. Little things could make this a legit five star- make sure sinks aren't clogged, stock with more and better towels and robes, up the breakfast a touch from local sources, etc... Easy choices.

Restoration on King ----location and gymPosted Jun 5, 2014
Aside from the informal full service atmosphere, which I'm sure all others have noted, one important feature of the hotel is its location. In short ---- perfect. It is right in the middle of town with an easy walk anywhere. In addition the free Green Line trolly stops right by the hotel on the SW corner of Wentworth and King. They are building an additional 35 rooms at the hotel which I hope won't detract from the intimate atmosphere. A word about the exercise facility. If you want a spa don't come here. If you want a full gym with 10 running machines and a variety of equipment it's all you need.. They have an arrangement with the Echo fitness center which is a quarter of a block away. Nothing fancy --- it's a gym not a spa but you can do your workout and walk back to your room at the hotel for a shower. We'd stay here again if we returned to Charleston.

Fabulous gem in Charleston.Posted May 31, 2014
Cons: Can't think of a thing.
Location: Lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance.
Wow, this boutique hotel exceeded my expectations. From the moment we check in to the moment we checked out, the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. What a pleasant surprise when we opened the door to our suite and realized that our "room" was a very nicely appointed apartment. From the exposed brick on the walls, the high ceilings, well appointed kitchen (with full sized refrigerator- which was stocked with sodas and water, dishwasher and oven), very comfortable living room (with large windows to enjoy the city), ample bathroom and king sized bedroom - oh and let me not forget to mention the included lovely picnic basket breakfast delivered to your suite each morning... our stay couldn't have been better. The hotel is within walking distance to all there is to see and do in Charleston. We only took it out our car to go to Magnolia Plantation (which I would recommend). Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a unique/high end experience in Charleston.

Wonderful hotel in the heart of CharlestonPosted May 22, 2014
Pros: The room layout described above. They provided breakfast in the room, wine and cheese in the early evening, and cookies at night.
Cons: The quality of the breakfast was inferior to everything else about the hotel, i.e., fruit salad wasn't very fresh.
Location: Walkable to museums, excellent restaurants, historic houses, shopping, waterfront.
The staff was welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. While there was construction going on in the area and right on the street where the hotel is located, there was no noise or major impediment. The accommodations are suites and ours had a very large, comfortable living room and bedroom and a modern, well equipped kitchen. The bathroom was modern and large and the bed was very comfortable.
