The South's Grandest New Luxury Hotel
H I S T O RY
A family dream, realized Superbly situated on King Street—Charleston’s most prominent address— and overlooking Charleston’s iconic and historic Marion Square, Hotel Bennett perfectly blends unparalleled luxury with an unmatched setting. With numerous businesses, restaurants and a 1,000seat music venue to his credit, Michael Bennett— the hotel’s visionary—has been instrumental in the redevelopment of the area, particularly King Street. The hotel is appropriately named for his family, which owns the property where this world-class hotel now calls home. The Bennett family’s roots in Charleston trace back multiple generations, and Michael’s father once shined shoes opposite the hotel site during the Great Depression. His mother, Virginia, still works alongside him five days a week.
