What Will You Discover?

From the moment you arrive, you’ll experience the charm, warmth, and character that make Charleston an unrivaled destination. The exposed brick and expansive columns used in the building’s original construction and the “hidden” poker room highlight the hotel’s historic roots, while our hospitality ambassadors help you curate, customize, and enrich your experience in “The Holy City.” And, since no journey is complete without all your loved ones, pet-friendly rooms are available.

Sophisticated Delights
