Today’s travelers have more lodging options than ever before, but how does one go about enjoying a vacation that feels exclusively local without giving up the luxuries and amenities of a major hotel chain? Enter the boutique hotel, the hottest trend in hospitality. Charleston boutique hotels are elevating the already high standard for hospitality in The Holy City. As Charleston is known for its quaint, classic, Southern charm, so too are these hotels, which provide a luxury vacation experience like no other. Here’s a peek at two of the best Charleston boutique hotel options, available now.

563 King – Signature Vacation Apartments On King Street

563 King Signature Apartments offers a premium Charleston vacation experience. Simply put, you’ll be in the middle of one of the nation’s most heralded vacation towns, already a not-so-well-kept secret among world travelers. In the heart of The Holy City, located on King and Cannon, 563 King is just steps away from incredible restaurants, distilleries, breweries, museums and live performances. Fully renovated, this property was meticulously refashioned to offer a fresh modern vibe while maintaining the integrity of the original aesthetics, featuring exposed brick throughout the rooms.

This boutique hotel houses six units, five of which sleep up to six guests—the other up to four. While each suite has its own unique feel, guests can expect a modern interior and even a little funkiness with bright color tones.

Interested in some outdoor lounging and fun? Be sure to check out the 1,500 square foot furnished patio that sprawls the outside of the building with high-end outdoor furniture, perfect for getting the day started or winding it down!

493 King – Luxury Hotel Suites

Two-bedroom suites are available at this newly reclaimed and renovated space in the heart of Charleston’s buzzing King Street. Every suite at 493 King (taking Charleston namesakes like Ashley, Cooper, Gullah, and Folly) is unique unto itself. While no two suites at 493 King are the same, the luxury standard is certainly clear throughout the hotel, with each offering a contemporary and comfortable stay.

Each bedroom is outfitted with a King-sized bed and its own bathroom. Every unit also has a full kitchen with stainless steel appliances that opens into a full living room space. Flatscreen TVs are in each suite, with free WiFi and cable provided.

The Luxury Hotel Suites at 493 King consist of eight total units, seven of which sleep up to six guests, with The Hampton Suite sleeping up to ten. This Charleston boutique hotel is ideal for large groups too, with the ability to set aside a block of rooms for a wedding, family reunion, corporate travel or other event. Reservations of any size are available for one night to one month when you book with Walk Away Stays. Parking is also available for $10 per day, though with bustling King Street right outside your door, you may not need parking at all!
