Luxury, warmth and a nod to old Charleston

Luxury, style and charm in South Carolina

Destination: South Carolina, USA
Vacation: Unique city break
Seeking: Style and exploration
Highlight: Historic setting

Offering old-world charm with a distinctive modern edge The Dewberry Charleston is a beautiful luxury hotel in South Carolina, and an ideal base to explore the cobblestone streets and pastel houses of one of America’s most iconic cities.

Honoring the history of the landmark L. Mendel Rivers Federal Building (circa 1964), The Dewberry captures the luxury and quiet restraint that are hallmarks of historic Charleston.

Inside and out, The Dewberry Charleston is a manifestation of founder John Dewberry’s vision of “Southern Reimagined™.” As much a setting as it is a state of mind, the hotel was brought to life over eight years by a team of architects and designers who shared Dewberry’s mission to present Charleston from a uniquely personal perspective. The result is a thoughtfully imagined juxtaposition of past and present that redefines what is possible when historic preservation is paramount.

“Secret-recipe limewash. Decorative hand-crafted metalworks. Period furnishings. Thought-provoking works of art. Every square inch of The Dewberry reflects a tight-knit collaboration between preservationists, designers, architects, artists and artisans over the course of eight years.”
