Romance, world-class cuisine, rich history, fine art, singular shopping… there’s no shortage of reasons to visit Charleston and no shortage of visitors. A robust market of hotels, inns, and B&Bs competes for the opportunity to host these travelers, engendering accommodations as luxurious and varied as the city itself. And now we have another hotel to add to our list of the best places to stay in Charleston: The Saint.
The Saint Hotel opened during 2020. It is a perfect example of the resiliency of the Charleston travel industry as well as of its eagerness to live up to its reputation.
Located in the iconic French Quarter of Charleston, The Saint Hotel offers 45 brand new guest rooms and suites designed with luxury in mind. One reason why its one of the best places to stay in Charleston. Whether you’re staying in an elegant room with balcony access, the 1,350 square foot penthouse suite, or one of the hotel’s other accommodations, expect soft, Egyptian cotton bedding, dreamy art deco/avant garde furnishings, and rejuvenating private bathroom spaces.
What Makes It One Of The Best Places To Stay In Charleston…
In the morning, guests wake to a European-style breakfast of quiche, local pastries, smoked salmon, gourmet cheese, freshly squeezed juice, and more. In the evenings, guests can take a breather from the bustle of the city at Envy—the hotel’s bar and lounge. Wind down (or, perhaps, gear up) over cocktails or wine. And refuel via small plate shareables, Southern-inspired entrees, or indulge in dessert (it is vacation, after all). The best part? Envy’s heavenly happy hour includes two free cocktails for guests during each night of their stay.
When it’s time to head out, stop in the lobby. Drink in its 22-foot ceilings, six-foot chandeliers, and spunky gold accents before heading to the full service concierge station. The attendant might recommend a walk along Rainbow Row, which is only a few blocks from the hotel’s front door. Or they might suggest visiting the Historic Charleston City Market—the city’s famous four-block bazaar. This location to some of our favorite things to do in the Holy City is another reason why it is one of the best places to stay in Charleston.
Where To Eat When Staying At The Saint
And, of course, in Charleston there’s always food to be sampled. Two of Charleston’s best restaurants are just around the corner from the Saint Hotel. High Cotton and Slightly North of Broad both serve low country fare made from local ingredients. Mosey into either establishment for shrimp & grits, tender ribeye, lamb rack, local seafood, and more.
No matter what brings someone to Charleston, there’s plenty to bring them back, and The Saint Hotel is no exception. Whether in need of a comfortable place to rest at the end of a full day in the Holy City or a launch pad for a busy evening experiencing the Charleston nightlife, this boutique hotel in the heart of Charleston’s historic district is prepared to demonstrate why it deserves a coveted spot on the list of Charleston’s top lodging.
