The Location


This five-star hotel and wedding venue rests on famed King Street overlooking Charleston's iconic Marion Square and steps from renowned fashion, art, antiques and historic sites.

Things To Do

Charleston is steeped in rich Southern history and culture, dappled with lovingly preserved architecture, a church-spired skyline and lush legendary gardens.
The historic port city is a foodie haven with award-winning chefs serving fresh-caught seafood and delectable Lowcountry comfort dishes. Civil War sites and iconic plantations, Fort Sumter boat tours and horse-drawn carriage rides clacking down cobblestone streets offer a taste of the past while mile after mile of soft white-sand coastline delivers five beautiful beach enclaves, yachting, fishing and acclaimed golf courses. A walk down King Street unveils locally owned and high-end boutiques and the Saturday morning Marion Square farmers market is the place for local produce and artisan crafts.
