Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

The best time to visit Charleston is during the spring, between March and August. The blooming Magnolia trees make for a picture-perfect city landscape and the temperatures are warm. The summer months of July and August can be incredibly hot and humid, so a few days in the city should be rounded off with a trip to the coast. Winter can be pleasant, but there is a slight chill in the air that deters most tourists.

Description

The Dewberry is a contemporary hotel located on the edge of Marion Square just steps from bustling King Street. The hotel is stylish with mid-century decor and original period furnishings give the hotel a sophisticated atmosphere in the heart of town.

Elegantly designed, The Dewberry offers guests the perfect retreat from city exploring. Popular with locals for after-work drinks and rooftop cocktails, The Dewberry is a trendy hotspot for locals and tourists alike. With hip 1960s decor, a stylish restaurant and bar area and romantic guestrooms with local artisan ornaments, the hotel suits couples wanting a modern, mid-century hotel from which to explore Charleston.

Guests can begin the morning with an open-air yoga class on the hotel's Rooftop Terrace, before heading to Henrietta's for a delicious breakfast. Bicycles can be hired from the front desk, so guests can make full use of these to explore the city at length. Complete with baskets and maps for suggested routes and scenery, the complimentary bikes are lovely addition to the superb service the hotel already offers.

Ideally situated in the heart of the historic district, The Dewberry has shops and restaurants in its backyard and is great for those wishing to walk around the city. Those hoping to do less walking can head out in the sleek house cars, specifically designed to chauffeur you around Charleston's busy streets. Visit Rainbow Row, head to Waterfront Park or wander around city market before heading back to the lounge for a well-deserved cocktail.

Never judge a book by its cover is definitely the saying that I would begin with for the Dewberry.  Located in the old federal building, the exterior is not the most aesthetically pleasing of the buildings in Charleston to say the least.  In fact the building lay almost derelict for 15 years before it was lovingly restored over a 10 year period by its new owners.  The exterior may remain unchanged but inside it couldnt be more different.  In a homage to the 1960s, the welcoming living room is furnished in last century style, much of the furniture being from that era. The brass bar is a statement piece and I can imagine that by 6pm it will be buzzing with guests and locals alike, enjoying an expertly made cocktail or two before dinner. Henriettas restaurant offers French cuisine with a Southern twist and live music on the weekend evenings.  My beet salad here was exceptional and the service matched.  The fun artwork on the walls made me want to return of an evening, this place would be fun, yet still sophisticated. Upstairs on the rooftop guests can enjoy a 360 degree view of the city, the only building that allows this.  They are in the process of building a new bar and restaurant up on this level which promises to be one of the best spots in town for lunch and dinner for the views alone. Back down on the lower levels, the guest rooms are beautifully appointed with stunning touches once again an ode to the 1960s style yet with Southern touches such as the reed baskets, all hand made and famous as a dying art in the city.  Location wise, the hotel is across from Marion Square Park, one of the focal points of the city, and just a few minutes walk from the shopping and restaurants of King Street.  The historic and French quarters of the city are a 15 minute stroll away so a little further to get to, however, the house car will whisk you down there in no time at all.  So The Dewberry is interesting, unconventional and a very grown up hotel. Definitely worth a stay for something a little different in what is mainly a traditional and historic city.

The Dewberry is an exquisite example of all that was right about 1960s design and architecture. The former federal building has been lovingly restored by its current owners into a sleek and elegant hotel. Situated on Meeting Street in the heart of Charlestons historic district the hotel benefits from views across Marion Square park as well as being home to one of the best rooftop bars in the city and one of the highest view points in Charleston.  The thoughtfully appointed rooms are homely with floor to ceiling windows, hand crafted furniture and original artwork.  Despite the Dewberrys corporate appearance, the hotel is intimate and friendly with stylish touches.  The house car is particularly useful which drops guests within a 3-mile radius of the hotel a blessing when the temperatures soar in the summer!
