Congratulations to The Restoration on King's General Manager, Howard Letts! Howard was recognized with TripAdvisor's Exceptional Service Award. These awards are a way for travelers to acknowledge those dedicated service professionals whose above-and-beyond actions have improved travel experiences.
"Anyone traveling to Charleston needs to seriously consider a stay at the Restoration. The customer service is the best I have ever experienced. We happened to have a late-night arrival (10 pm), and the General Manager, Howard Letts, was right at the door to greet us. We were offered some wonderful treats before bedtime and then taken on a quick tour of the site. Mr. Letts also gave us a thorough tour of the suite and explanation of the amenities. Ours was a fantastic one-bedroom suite with a beautiful balcony and sizable living dining area. The Restoration even has a Pillow Bar, which guarantees that you will have a best night sleep given your preference of pillow. The stay includes breakfast, which is delivered to your door in an elegant picnic basket. The property itself is gorgeous and in keeping with the beautiful architecture of the city. Hats off to the Restoration. They sure know how to make a guest feel extra special."
Originally from the hills of East Tennessee, Suzy grew up surrounded by color. While living as a military wife in Oklahoma and working as a full-time mother, she began dabbling in watercolor and rekindled her life-long passion for painting. Her family moved to Mount Pleasant, SC where she found inspiration in the rich beauty of the low country.
Inspired by the brilliant landscapes of Charleston, Suzy began her serious study of color. She switched to oil painting and developed her technique of using visible brush strokes to tell a unique story. She specializes in impressionist bold color oil paintings. Her emphasis on color is designed to provoke emotion and perhaps connect the viewer’s own memories to the canvas.

The way the Charleston community united in love and faith over the recent tragedy is remarkable. Evil visited Charleston and shattered lives, but we remain Charleston strong. Our leaders led with wisdom, professionalism, heart and soul. I am humbled by the families and the heroes, honored to be part of this community. Seems awkward to go back to talking about cheery King Street news under that considerable shadow, but we go on, albeit changed forever. Love and prayers all who were so deeply wounded by the act of hate and racism.
Maestro Matteo Fedeli, violin virtuoso, held two concerts at the Charleston Library Society last month accompanied by Andrea Carcano. Connecting dots, 2nd Sunday on King Street brings many area residents downtown. They love it and sign up for news about other special events. Because of that reach, people who had never seen or heard a Stradivarius violin, never been inside the Library Society, never experienced the Sylvan Gallery or Reinert Fine Art Gallery—each one held pre-concert receptions—got a magic memory. Mission accomplished.
Both concerts led me to explore and admire the Charleston Library Society. It’s as beautiful inside as it it outside. There are stacks, of course, with titles ranging from historic books to newer ones. You can check out a movie just like at the public library. There are historic documents to view as well, and comfortable chairs for lingering. The main space, which is basically a big rectangular box, has wonderful acoustics for performances, and a fine Steinway piano, perpetually in tune. World renowned pianist Andrea Carcano took full advantage of the instrument with a solo performance midway through both Fedeli concerts, summoning the first of many standing ovations.
