Overview

The Dewberry Charleston is perfectly situated in the center of Charleston’s downtown district, between the Upper and Lower Districts of the Historic Peninsula. The recently renovated 155-guestroom hotel was repurposed from the seven-story L. Mendel Rivers Federal Building. President Lyndon B. Johnson commissioned this mid-century modern structure that opened in 1965, named for Charlestonian L. Mendel Rivers to commemorate his 30 years of service in Congress. John Dewberry bought the building nine years after it was vacated due to damage by Hurricane Floyd. Mr. Dewberry spent eight years on the renovation, incorporating a Southern theme while preserving the mid-century modern feel.

Timeless, authentic, and vibrant – are the three elements that encase The Dewberry. Mr. Dewberry’s “Southern Reimagined” vision is evident when guests walk into the lobby on custom marble floors, re-created to match the commissioned plaque behind the concierge desk. Visitors can enjoy drinks in the Living Room, with floors constructed from an old Tobacco Farm in Virginia. Every piece of furniture was hand-picked by Mr. Dewberry. New York's Workstead, collaborating with Mr. Dewberry and his team, designed the incomparable interiors, combining the time-tested materials of the South while underlining its mid-century modern roots. Mr. Dewberry partnered with local companies, such as Urban Electric to manufacture all the unique lighting in the hotel and guestrooms.

Called the "the most polite and hospitable city in America" by Southern Living magazine, Charleston is a popular destination for business and leisure travelers. The Dewberry Charleston is located downtown, just across the street from the famous Marion Square, also known as Citadel Green. The eight-story luxury hotel features 155 guestrooms, including 48 suites, 4,050 square feet of meeting space, a Southern brasserie, relaxing bar and lounge, fitness center, and spa. Its convenient locale is the perfect starting point to explore the oldest and second-largest city in South Carolina, its rich history, vibrant architecture, and delectable dining.

The Dewberry Charleston, a member of Historic Hotels of America since 2016, dates back to 1964.

Fun FactThe Federal Building was commissioned under President Johnson’s “Great Society,” a cluster of federal programs that saw an increase in the number of federal buildings constructed. These buildings were meant to not only embody contemporary architecture, but also take into account local traditions and materials.
