About Us

The south’s grandest luxury hotel, Hotel Bennett was inspired by native Charlestonians. Located on the fashionable King Street, the prominent entrance opens upon the corner of historic Marion Square. Style and elegance come to life throughout with unique appointments to the accommodations and guest amenities. Custom furnishings and local artwork complement the exquisite dining experiences in Gabrielle, La Patisserie, Camellias, and Fiat Lux. The hotel perfectly blends unparalleled luxury with an unmatched setting in the country’s most beloved city.

Press Coverage

"The lounges are some of the most beautiful in the city. Take in panoramic views of the skyline at the rooftop bar, Fiat Lux, or sip Champagne in the pink-hued parlor, Camellias."
Travel + Leisure

“The hotel’s design and interior finishes evoke European grandeur with extravagant use of marble, limestone, copper and tile but it’s the local touches that impart a unique dose of Carolina Lowcountry soul.”

“My room, genteel and bright, felt like one of the tony homes south of Broad Street with its built-in-bookcases, deep soaking tub, and serene palate of dove gray and pale blue. Only the modern touches—drapes that close with the touch of a remote; a rooftop pool, the largest in town—betray the hotel’s newness.”
Travel + Leisure

“Service at Hotel Bennett definitely distinguishes the property as a luxury destination, with an entire valet team and front desk staff that commits your name to memory and goes above and beyond in making every wish their command.”
Travel Channel

“On the northwest corner of Marion Square, the city’s central park, Bennett has pulled off an elegant Southern spin on a grand European hotel, one that skillfully fuses an old-world glamour with Lowcountry touches.”
Garden & Gun

“The newly opened Hotel Bennett, which is located on Marion Square, is a European-inspired property with a heated pool on the roof and a pink Champagne bar, Camellias, that’s the talk of the town.”
Southern Living

“While Hotel Bennett feels elegant and grand, it’s also comfortable and welcoming. By day, guests sip coffee and tea on the patio just feet from Marion Square, a 10-acre park that hosts festivals, picnics, farmers markets and more, while couples stroll across the breathtaking two-story atrium you pass through as you enter the hotel. By night, the place buzzes with the chatter of patrons sipping on artisan cocktails in the lobby lounge. This casual, approachable elegance is exactly the feeling you get when visiting Charleston’s newest luxury hotel.”
SouthPark Magazine

“Hotel Bennett exudes Southern grandeur—tastefully decorated at every turn without ever feeling crowded. As soon as you step through the main doors, away from the hustle and bustle of King Street, a sense of serenity overtakes you as you make your way to the main lobby. A murmur of friendly banter can be heard over the grand piano by those having a good time at one of the hotel’s lounges. Finally, the tenseness of travel begins to ease. You have arrived.”

“Each guest room is its own retreat, with tall windows (some suites open to private terraces), built-in bookshelves with local authors' titles (a nod to the site's library history), and bedding fit for royalty.”
