Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Want to get married on the sand? At this full-service oceanfront hotel you can exchange vows to the relaxing sound of waves on a gorgeous strip of Charleston's golden beach. Then take a stroll along the shore (with your photographer!) to the nearby pier for unforgettable photos—especially at sunset!
  • With a variety of banquet rooms—some lined with windows overlooking the ocean—the Tides can host both intimate and large events, from a formal reception to a casual, beach-inspired celebration. Plus, their professional catering staff will work with you to design a menu that fits your tastes.
  • Guests staying the weekend will love the accommodations: beachfront patio rooms come with their own semi-private patio, while oceanfront rooms feature a walkout patio for enjoying the spectacular views of the Atlantic. And there's always lots to do, like water sports, bike rides, and local dining & entertainment.
