A question I'm often asked is where to stay in downtown Charleston. After experiencing quite a few hotels with my family (plus a spontaneous staycation or two), my mom's stay at the Restoration last week blew me away.
There is a certain charm to the many historic hotels, but I love that the Restoration is brand new inside. It feels chic and lofty -- plus, there is this roof. My mom and her girlfriends sat up there every morning with their basket of breakfast (delivered daily from Saffron Bakery), basking in the sun. It's in a central location and they serve wine and cheese every evening. I'm sold.
