Charleston’s continued ascent as a premier travel destination is revealing an unexpected side-effect.
Traditional vacations just don’t allow enough time to fully take in our picturesque landscapes, savor the Lowcountry cuisine, or explore the striking historical sites.
That’s why more guests are booking long-term stays at The Restoration. Part of a growing national trend, more Charleston travelers seek long term stay hotels, usually a hotel with kitchenette or one featuring rooms with kitchens.
Being geared to the modern traveler, The Restoration has long been an ideal choice for extended stays. Our Residences were designed to give guests a relaxed and refined setting for long-term visits that also made them feel right at home.
Long-term visitors seek flexibility so we made sure it’s weaved into the fabric of their experience here. Residences are available in 800, 1,300, 1,500, and 2,300 square-foot layouts with one, two, or three bedrooms, comfortably sleeping three to seven adults.
Instead of merely creating an apartment hotel or adding larger, adjoining rooms, we created spaces with perfectly appointed accommodations. Each Residence is outfitted with authentic historical elements like exposed brick walls, hardwood floors, and tongue-and-groove hardwood ceilings, creating a blend of luxury and character unrivaled in Charleston.
A big advantage of our Residences over two bedroom hotels are full kitchens with stainless steel appliances which help guests live like locals. You can even have our Guest Services Concierge stock your refrigerator with Lowcountry specialities prior to your arrival.
The dedicated dining area in the Residences is perfect for having private meals curated by Food & Beverage Director, Daniel Nightengale. It also gives you an alternative to dining out every meal.
Another way residences are designed to inspire are the available full terraces. Perched atop the 3rd floor of the Grand Three-Bedroom Residence is a 500 square-foot private, open-air space perfect for relaxing and taking in panoramic views of Charleston.
When it’s time for a good night’s rest, everyone can retreat to private bedrooms with king or queen beds. Unlike a hotel with connecting bedrooms, Residence rooms have their own attached private bathroom, stocked with premium Beekman 1802 skincare products.
Between outings in the Holy City, modern-day explorers can absorb the home-away-from-home atmosphere of well-appointed living rooms adorned with smart TVs, floor-to-ceiling windows, and custom photography by artist Gately Williams.
Available washer and dryer sets make it easy to always look fresh whether you’re having a beach day or exploring the city via The Restoration’s rental bikes.
For an extended visit at a relaxed pace, we offer more than just attractive hotel weekly rates. There’s simply no better way to soak up Charleston’s full splendor than a stay in one of our Residences.
