Known for its beautiful architecture,  historic charm and extraordinary cuisine, Charleston, S.C. is ranked high as a favorite travel destination. Just in time for the summer season, the Renaissance Charleston Historic District Hotel has a new sleek look. Designed by P3 Design Collective, the hotel boasts 162 home-inspired guest rooms, 4 luxurious suites, creative meetings and events space, an outdoor saltwater pool, an energizing fitness center, and a quintessentially Southern lobby.

We are thrilled to invite guests into the redesigned Renaissance Charleston Historic District Hotel to have them experience our fresh new look and feel,” said General Manager Brian Wander. “The new features, local art, and overall design speak so highly of our hotel’s emphasis on Southern hospitality and tradition while also fitting into the charming city around us. While we’ve updated a lot of the hotel through this redesign, this hotel is still rooted in history.”

In my opinion, the Marriot brand always takes it up a notch with its restaurants. 1KEPT is the hotel’s new restaurant and bar concept featuring a dining room, a full lounge and bar with hotel lobby access, plus a beer garden and front patio. The menu features New Southern flavors while incorporating sustainable seafood and hyper-locally sourced ingredients with highlights such as the Chicken Schnitzel & Herb Spätzle served with caramelized onion cream, braised red cabbage and kale and the Duck Confit served with sauce soubise, pickled shallots, asparagus salad and candied lemon zest. The bar’s Moscow Mule is cold brew-infused for a twist and the Summertime at the Farm combines tequila, fresh lemon juice, and cold pressed carrot juice for a refreshing new take on a classic Southern cocktail. 

1KEPT opened this month with breakfast service from 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and lunch and dinner service from 11:30 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. Bar closes at midnight.

Charleston and Nashville are both on my lists to visit in the future. Book these properties on our Book at Hotel page, or find a property that suits your travel needs and budget.
