The Restoration Hotel Christmas package
Creating new memories that will last a lifetime is how Chelsea Nightengale, The Restoration Hotel general manager, describes the “Christmas Tree Package.” You’ll find the details below in my interview with Chelsea.

Reserve Your “Restoration Christmas” in Charleston

Home for the Holidays at The Restoration Hotel

Charleston Christmas Fun awaits you, but of course, with the Southern hospitality tourists have come to relish.

If coastal and historic fit your vision of the perfect Christmas getaway, add The Restoration Hotel to your 2019 holiday itinerary. It’s not too late to book your hotel or residences’ suite at The Restoration Hotel, low-country, high-quality historic lodging at the heart of the New South.

A mild Charleston climate is the perfect home base to visit landmarks and connect with the outdoors but meanwhile, back in your guest room, The Restoration Hotel ‘s over-the-top Christmas Tree package epitomizes “home for the holidays.”

Scroll down to read my interview with Chelsea Nightengale, The Restoration Hotel general manager. She’ll fill you in with the package details.

“Guests feel truly at home in historic downtown Charleston,” Chelsea says. “We offer the tree placed in your room and decorated upon arrival or a DIY kit so our guests can recreate traditions and memories from home.”

The Restoration Hotel Christmas Tree Package screams Southern Hospitality in Charleston, SC.
Spend your holidays in the Low Country at The Restoration Hotel, a posh historic hotel in the heart of iconic Charleston.

Chelsea, please elaborate on the Christmas Tree Package and why it’s so much fun?

Our over-sized, apartment-style suites allow our guests to live like a local in Historic Downtown Charleston. The idea for our Christmas Tree package was to make our guests truly feel like they are “home for the holidays”. We offer the tree placed in the room and decorated upon arrival or a DIY kit so our guests can recreate traditions and memories from home.

How did you create a one-of-a-kind experience for your guests?

We are always looking for a way to make our guests feel at home, and even more so during the holidays. We want to be able to share traditions and make new memories with them.

The Restoration Hotel Christmas Tree Package will light up your Charleston holiday getaway.
Brighten your holidays at The Restoration Hotel, Charleston, SC. Experience Southern hospitality at its finest.

What are some of the highlights of your Christmas tree package?

We always tuck a personalized ornament into the tree, either with the guest’s name or something that signifies their trip. We tie a small note to the ornament to let them know to take it with them upon leaving. Our hope is that our guests continue to place this ornament on their tree for years to come, reminding them of their memories of Charleston. Also, upon a requested time, we will deliver Eggnog and Sugar cookies to the guests’ room to get everyone in the Holiday Spirit.

What’s happening in the surrounding community that guests should explore?

There is nothing like Christmas in the Low Country. Our winters are mild so we love to spend time outside. We have our annual Downtown Christmas Parade, the Holiday Market at Marion Square, and my personal favorite is the Holiday Festival of Lights at James Island County Park.

See more photos of this magnificent hotel and book your Christmas getaway today.

Many thanks to The Restoration Hotel management for participating in our holiday showcase.
