When staying in the South, we want distinctive Southern flair, and this is the place to find it. The hotel embodies the graciousness of historic Charleston, while at the same time venturing tastefully into the 21st century, most notably with its rooftop swimming pool. Mahogany foyers offer prelude to the bedrooms, which are done up with mahogany poster beds, Frette linen sheets, cashmere blankets and, in some cases, balconies overlooking the historic City Market. The concierge level includes The Terrace Suite with a king-size mahogany sleigh bed and private outdoor terrace, and the Presidential Suite with a baby grand, two bedrooms and formal living room. Grill 225 is an upscale steak house, and Pavilion Bar, on the roof, overlooks the harbor and city skyline. The hotel has a full events staff to cater to conferences and weddings.
