The Spectator Hotel

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love It

  • The paint just dried on this brand-new hotel, which is a tribute to the decadence of the 1920s
  • Ideal location for first-time visitors in the historic district; steps from City Market and the harbor view
  • Continental breakfast, Wi-Fi, use of bicycles and personal butler service are complimentary for all guests

At the coveted junction of Charleston’s French Quarter and Market Street districts, The Spectator Hotel is a brand-new 1920s-inspired property ideal for trendy couples or the savvy business traveler. Since celebrating its opening in 2015, the hotel has already been applauded for its distinctive blend of vintage-glamour interiors, contemporary accommodations and traditional Southern hospitality.

Past guests rave attentive assistance of the personalized butler staff that provide traditional services, including packing and unpacking, light pressing and nightly turndown -- timeless courtesies that other modern hotels have opted to replace with do-it-yourself amenities.

In addition, The Spectator offers the expected conveniences of a boutique hotel: complimentary Wi-Fi, gourmet continental breakfast room service, welcome cocktails, 24-hour valet and concierge, and expedited check-in and checkout. Guests should take advantage of the hotel's complimentary bike rentals to explore the city.

The 41 sleek guestrooms and suites start at 370 square feet and are equipped with the latest gadgets, from Bluetooth connectivity and smart TVs to heated towel racks and unassuming directional reading lamps.

The Bar is the hotel's cocktail lounge, where cleverly named beverages like the Fizz-gerald are mixed up by devastatingly cool mixologists. The Instagram-worthy setting is decorated with rich wood accents, artwork, tufted leather chairs and ceiling-high bookcases.

While there is no on-site restaurant at the hotel, The Bar serves small plates, and the hotel is less than a five-minute walk to Charleston's historic City Market, with great dining hall restaurants and vendors.
