Renaissance Charleston Historic District Hotel | Discover Renaissance Hotels

Our Top Priority – Our Guests: COVID-19 update and cancellation policy

The Renaissance Charleston Historic District Hotel is a place that never gets old, no matter how much history surrounds it.

Here’s the thing about the historic heart of Charleston:  Around every wrought-iron fence, narrow cobblestoned street, soaring steeple or moss-draped oak, there is something charmingly Southern, or stylishly worldly, to discover. And when you step through the doors of the Renaissance® Charleston Historic District Hotel, this uniquely Charleston paradigm unfolds in much the same way. Inspired by the Ansonborough neighborhood, our reimagined guest rooms evoke a personal home-like space, our transformed lobby is a muse for Charleston, showcasing quirky sensibilities and Southern charm. You can also discover all the charm and splendor of Charleston’s famous historic quarter, with help from our knowledgeable and attentive resident Navigator Suzanne.

Power & Glory

Decorating the wall of the old Tivoli building in downtown Charleston, Power & Glory is just one of numerous murals created by world-famous artist Shepard Fairey to honor the inspiration he gained from his hometown. Designed in his trademark style, incorporating bold lines and propaganda elements overlaid with arabesque natural designs that come and go abruptly, this mural brings a little color to this in-between area of town.

Park Cafe

Park Cafe is one of the first of what will hopefully be many more restaurants in the up-and-coming Hampton Park neighborhood. Featuring local beers and cocktails in addition to creative and playful takes on American classics, Park Cafe features something for everyone in a casual environment. I have been for brunch several times and my favorite dish is consistently the Irish breakfast bowl.

Prohibition has been noteworthy since their opening due to their highly unique atmosphere among the swanky cocktail bars on Upper King Street. Featuring live music several nights out of the week and a dance floor, Prohibition aims for a fun approachable evening crowd that is fun for a diverse crowd. Their hidden back patio is beautiful and makes for an intimate, quiet setting to enjoy adult drinks

Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park

There's nothing quite like a day out at a ball game, and in Charleston, the place to see the action is Joseph P. Riley Jr. Park. This stadium is named after the longest-serving mayor in Charleston's history and is home to the Charleston RiverDogs. It has a seating capacity of 6000, allowing it to host several Southern Conference tournaments over the years. 

Goat. Sheep. Cow.

Those cooking for a dinner party should definitely not skip shopping at Goat. Sheep. Cow. This fromagerie is located in a picturesque building with potted plants at the entrance and windows decked with flower pots. Inside, one can easily get overwhelmed by the racks of gourmet cheese and wine from all over the world. However, the owners guide shoppers to choose the best ingredients that suit their needs. There are meat and cheese platters as well as beautifully-packaged specialty groceries, breads, olives, mustard and nuts. Their wine selection is specially chosen to complement their diverse food items. It is a great place to savor artisan foodstuffs in the company of other gastronomes.
