In development for two decades by Michael Bennett, Hotel Bennett will deliver Charleston's finest and most gracious experience. The Bennett family's roots in Charleston trace back generations. Michael's father once shined shoes opposite the hotel site during the Great Depression.

"Hotel Bennett will be viewed as one of the city's enduring landmarks - when it opens and 100 years from now."
- Michael Bennett
