Restoration on King Review

Charleston architect Neil Stevenson is known for his modern buildings and streamlined interiors, so it makes sense that the luxury boutique hotel he designed in 2010 would be swank and suave to the hilt, even featuring a rooftop terrace with sleek sofas and prime views. Set above the shops on King Street in the greater Market area, it's like a club only the cool kids know about, thanks to the subtle signage. Step inside the 1800s building and you're in a world of exposed brick, warm wood floors, and furniture that looks more designer condo than hotel. Maybe that's why they offer the extended-stay option? With its wine-and-cheese cocktail hour each evening, milk and cookies at bedtime, and full-size kitchens in every unit, it offers the best of creature comforts. And no worries on the noise factor: shops close by 7 pm at the latest and you're a few floors up, so any residual action is nicely buffered.
