Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • A wonderful boutique hotel in the heart of historic Charleston, this creative, welcoming property blends the town’s rich history with a host of modern amenities, stylish design, and more than a touch of gracious Southern hospitality.
  • The Courtyard is a lush urban hideaway, boasting bountiful trees and foliage, inviting seating areas, and a whitewashed brick fireplace that creates a lovely backdrop for vows. When combined with the Greenhouse, a glass, atrium-style covered space, this unexpected oasis makes a lovely spot for your al fresco celebration.
  • In the Haynes Street Gallery, the hotel’s spacious ballroom, a wall of oversized windows allows for ample natural light to flow into the room, and high, coffered ceilings create vintage-inspired drama. A simple, creamy color palette works with virtually any design theme.
