The staff were friendly and helpful. It is in a great location within walking distance to many places for shopping and food. They offer a complimentary golf cart ride as long as your destination is within a mile which we used a couple times. The room was unique and beautifully decorated, but it could have been cleaner. The countertops felt dirty and there were stains on furniture, pillows, and carpet. One of the main reasons we chose our specific type of room was for the terrace. The terrace was a nice size but offered no view of the city and was surrounded by other buildings with loud air conditioners. We really couldn’t use/enjoy the terrace at all. We are willing to give it another try, but will opt for a room without a terrace to save some money.

The Restoration was absolutely fabulous. Their rooms are large, clean, and oh so cozy! You didn’t even feel like you were staying in a hotel - it felt like a dreamy Airbnb. Our room overlooked King Street which made it fun to people watch and see the hustle and bustle! To the front desk ladies that greeted us when we walked in, thank you for the amazing food and drink recommendations - they were fabulous. The valet that drove to get the phone charger out of our car - you are awesome! Another thank you to Drew and Sean who got us from point A to B all weekend long on the golf cart. Exceptional! Seriously, this hotel has an experience unlike the rest. The staff goes above and beyond for their guests. The Watch restaurant upstairs has a beautiful view and awesome food. Breakfast and lunch were devine, I can only imagine what dinner was like! We wish our stay would have continued on longer, back to reality! Thank you Restoration Hotel for a wonderful Charleston weekend!
