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.
Just take a look at this TripAdvisor review:
"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."
The Restoration on King was recently included in the Conde Nast Johansens' list of "Best Roof Terraces Around the World."
"Recline in a lounger and sip an ice-cold glass of sweet tea (a Southern favourite) and enjoy the ambience of 'the friendliest city in America.' Surrounded by Civil War history, this rooftop highlights the best of the Charleston's French Quarter and Battery neighbourhoods with contemporary style."
And get ready for the rooftop expansion that opens late this fall! The expansion features The Watch Rooftop Kitchen & Spirits restaurant, The Observatory private event space, and The Indigo rooftop relaxing plunge pool.
In a futurist world where humans hunt and harvest androids for survival, one young man's jungle hunting excursion becomes his own moral and physical struggle to save his dying wife's life.
