The Restoration Hotel | Anniversary Getaway

Last week my husband and I celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary at The Restoration Hotel.  Typically our anniversary is spent like just another typical day with tweens at home, maybe we might be adventurous and enjoy dinner out at a restaurant alone. This year we decided to sneak away for the night to one of our favorite places, Charleston.


The Restoration Hotel

This recently refurbished, 54-suite hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Charleston on King Street. This chic, luxurious and romantic boutique hotel was the perfect place to spend our anniversary. My husband and I were both extremely impressed by every detail of the property.

The Property

This property is truly gorgeous and unique. Rather than a single hotel building, The Restoration is a collection of five classic buildings that have been modernized to provide world-class amenities. From the Amethyst Spa, The Watch rooftop restaurant, The Rise coffee shop, Indigo Pool and Port Mercantile retail store, there is simply nothing that compares to the luxury of this hotel.

Immediately upon arriving, we went straight to The Watch, the rooftop bar and restaurant for drinks. The Watch offers stunning views of the city along with delicious food and drinks.

Our Room

After a few drinks, it was time to check into our room. We stayed in a one-bedroom suite that featured a king-sized bedroom and a large dreamy bathroom, as well as a fully equipped kitchen and living space. The refrigerator was stocked with water, soda and a bottle of champagne for us to celebrate our anniversary!

The decor is elegant and modern with just the right amount of southern charm. I told my husband when the kids are older I could see myself living in a place just like it.

We ended the evening with a night swim in the Indigo Pool overlooking the city while watching the dreamiest sunset. Talk about romantic.


Since we only stayed one night we didn’t even begin to indulge in all the amenities this hotel has to offer. In addition to amazing accommodations, the hotel offers bike rentals, community areas, evening wine, and cheese reception, and so many different daily events.

If you want to be in the center of the action and enjoy the luxuries of a boutique hotel, The Restoration Hotel is the place for you. From the staff to the amenities and location our stay was nothing short of breathtaking and made our 14th anniversary a memorable one!

A special thank you to The Restoration Hotel for hosting us for our anniversary. As always, all opinions are my own.
