Hotel Bennett, Charleston, South Carolina’s new luxury hotel, is set to debut this fall on the iconic King Street overlooking Marion Square. In addition to having big name events, such as the Charleston Wine + Food Festival and Charleston Fashion Week, at their doorstep—thanks to the hotel’s location on the historic Square—guests of the 179-room Hotel Bennett are in close proximity to Charleston’s many landmarks, attractions and neighborhoods.
Upon arrival, guests will make their grand entrance into the hotel’s sweeping lobby, featuring a bar and an adjacent two-tiered restaurant that will open onto terraces overlooking Marion Square. After settling into their stylish guestroom or suite, complete with custom furnishings, elegant bathrooms and locally inspired artwork, guests can grab a cocktail at what is said to be Charleston’s first classic “Ladies Bar,” Camellia’s, which will feature an etched-mirrored ceiling and reclaimed pink marble from the former Charleston Library for its floor, bar and tabletops, plus a drink menu geared towards women.
Additional amenities include a signature restaurant, a heated, rooftop pool with cabanas and a bar, a French patisserie and a luxury spa with treatments that incorporate the area’s maritime surroundings and unique programming such as Skyline Yoga.
Hotel Bennett will also feature an exclusive Concierge Club for guests who want a more personalized experience. The Club, which has an outdoor terrace with views of King Street, will serve inventive dishes throughout the day and its staff will assist guests with obtaining tickets and reservations at the city’s famed restaurants.
Bennett Hospitality will collaborate with Salamander Hotels & Resorts to operate the hotel, which is also a member of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts Legend Collection. Guests of the hotel will receive preferred reservation access to Bennett Hospitality Group’s collection of nearby restaurants and theater, including The Victor Social Club, Michael’s on the Alley, Vincent Chicco’s, Rue de Jean, Coast, Virginia’s on King and the Charleston Music Hall. Rates start at $509 per night. For more information, visit hotelbennett.com.
