The Landmark

Built within the historic L. Mendel Rivers Federal Building, The Dewberry honored the landmark by refusing to change its iconic exterior. The building once housed hundreds of federal workers before it was damaged by Hurricane Floyd in 1999. Now it holds 155 beautifully designed suites.


In The Rooms

Their hand-crafted armoires are lined with wallpaper painted by local artist Becca Barnet. The in-room bars are seasonally curated by the hotel’s chef. Book a Charleston Flat to take in the luxury of their cast-iron soaking tub. Or maybe you want to relax under a canopy-covered King size bed. Even travel with friends and stay in one of their Grand Queen rooms. Guests can choose from several suite options, including the Grand King, the Signature King, or their One-Bedroom.


The Spa

When designing the hotel’s serene spa, owner John Dewberry took inspiration straight from his Charleston backyard. Seeking to replicate the aesthetic of an old carriage house, he lined the space with Cypress wood, dark colors, and local artwork. Lydia Mondavi, a renowned Southern spa expert, infused the space with lowcountry botanicals and calming marine extracts. Enjoy a personal training session in their state-of-the-art fitness studio, then relax in one of the spa’s five treatment rooms.

The Hospitality

Use The Dewberry’s experienced concierge service to book a sunset cruise or to plan a tour of Charleston’s landmarks, then return for a world-class meal at Henrietta’s. Promising Southern hospitality and high-quality, fresh ingredients from the lowcountry, Henrietta’s takes the spirit of a French brasserie and sprinkles in some Charleston charm. Book your stay through the weekend to take advantage of their mimosas at weekend brunch.


Looking to relax with an afternoon drink? The Dewberry’s Living Room brings the aesthetic of historic Charleston right into the lobby with mid-century furniture and a brass bar. For a view of the night sky, escape to the bar at The Rooftop Terrace and watch the city’s lights line the sea. No matter what kind of weekend adventure you’re looking for, Charleston is the place to find it, and The Dewberry is the place for a homebase.
