We were underwhelmed by our stay at the Restoration, while nothing was terrible, overall the whole experience was just average. We (two couples - four adults) stayed in a two bedroom suite for three nights. The room itself was well appointed and we really enjoyed the living room size and full kitchen. The master bedroom/bathroom were also nicely appointed and fairly spacious. The second bedroom was small and with no windows felt like an inside cabin of a cruise ship. The second bathroom was a little small and had some grime on the tiles. While there was a small outside balcony area there was not much of a view and mostly stared at powerlines. We had a couple of plumbing issues, the water to the second bathroom toilet stopped, but that was remedied quickly and efficiently by maintenance. The toilet water in the master bathroom was in-explicitly hot. Not a real "problem" but very strange. The whole suite smelled a little of must/mold. One of the biggest disappointments was the breakfast basket that we received each morning. While the description tells of "assorted pastries...artisan butters... and daily surprises" in reality the selections were odd and underwhelming. The first day we received four croissants, three small fruit cups, bottled orange juice and some milk. The second day, the same four croissants, four fruit cups, some hard boiled eggs, orange juice in small cups (perhaps fresh squeezed?) and milk. The third day again had the croissants, fruit, eggs, and juice. The "artisan" butter was prepackaged rectangles of butter like you would find at an IHOP. While the croissants were quite good, we stopped in the coffee shop downstairs to see if they did in fact have "assorted pastries" and found they did. Perhaps they just had an abundance of croissants. Perhaps it was the advertising that made the whole thing a bit of a let down. We had drinks in the Watch Bar, which was probably the highlight of the hotel. We did not eat there, but the cheeseburgers that came out looked good. The shop downstairs was ridiculously overpriced, even for Charleston hotel prices. Another highlight were the fresh cookies from 8-9, they were delicious. We also used the free bicycles that are offered, which is a nice amenity, but the bikes themselves were pretty beat up and uncomfortable to ride. Overall the staff was pleasant enough, although we did not ask much of them. We did ask for some ice as the one in our freezer was not working and it took two calls. I have nothing "bad" to say about the experience, but overall it is not a place I would stay again. Especially considering all the great options in Charleston.

I recently stayed for four nights and thought the hotel was wonderful. The location cannot be beat. Upon check-in my room was not ready, so I dropped the bags and headed out for a while. They called shortly after to let me know my room was ready. I arrived at the front desk gave them my credit card, they handed me my keys, and let me know my baggage had been brought up to the room. That was it - no explanation of the hotel amenities, no direction as to where the elevator was (I asked), and once in the room there were about 12 light switches and no explanation of room amenities as well. While this is not a huge problem for me - it does take the world "luxury" out of my mind a bit. The next day I had a spa appointment - the service itself was great, but as some others have commented, you can hear everything that is rolling by through the wall of the room which isn't too relaxing. There was a lot of morning noise from the restaurant above, but I believe this might have been due to impending renovations that were starting on my original day of departure. Once I decided to stay an extra night, I asked if they had a room with a washer and dryer - and they did. They offered this to me for the same rate as my current signature suite. It was a very unexpected luxury suite room upgrade. With a few tweaks this could easily be a 5 star review.

First visit was back in summer 2016, returned to celebrate my birthday and because we took advantage of a black Friday deal. To our surprise we were placed in the exact same corner room we had on last visit (#536) which we loved so that was nice (and they were able to check us in early too). They also left a bottle of champagne in the room for my bday which was unexpected and appreciated although we never got around to drinking it. I still love this hotel and will return, quality, cleanliness and feel of the property was just as we remembered. Location can't be beat! We enjoyed the morning breakfast basket each morning, bed and pillows were super comfortable, and majority of the staff were very welcoming. My "but" comes with just little things that were off that shouldn't be for a hotel of this caliber. Some examples: front desk check in welcome is lacking in a major way (bell boys/valet are super friendly and great at their jobs though!), dispenser for the shower gel was empty when we went to shower, there was no pen in the room to fill out the breakfast card so each day I would go down and get one from the front desk and after house cleaning came it would disappear again, the temperature in the room has a max setting of 75 but would never get to above 73 which didn't feel like 73. We did utilize the spa for massages and the spa is quite small but beautifully designed and feels so perfect, however while getting out service there was constant noise, doors closing, staff talking the entire time in other rooms which really took away from the experience, and the staff there just seems a bit unsure of themselves a bit and the check in and out process could be smoother. That said, we still very much enjoyed our stay but hope they will work on these little "kinks" that could make a great stay perfect!

You can’t beat the location of this hotel, it is just a few steps from all of the shops and restaurants on King street. My room was very spacious and clean. Bathroom was particularly large. I was a little disappointed with the shower. They went to the trouble of putting in two really good shower heads and the water pressure on both was horrible. I was glad there was a turn down service to take all the cushions off the bed! It did make it hard though to just sit and relax on the bed given more than half of it was covered in cushions and pillows (there were eleven, I counted). Tv in the room was huge, and great for watching a sporting match during my stay. On one night of the stay the room was really noisy whilst I was trying to sleep. I couldn’t tell if it was the elevators (which were nearby) or another guest moving furniture around - but either way the room was receiving a lot of outside noise. Lots of nice little extras - there was soda and sparkling water in the fridge that was complimentary, plus there was free wine in the ending in the lounge, and cookies a little later (8pm). There was also a complimentary breakfast that was delivered in a picnic basket. They do however only offer very basic items.
