The Dewberry Hotel offers 155 rooms and suites within the recently renovated and repurposed mid-century modern former Mendel L. Rivers Federal Building. The Dewberry’s ideal downtown location overlooks Marion Square on Charleston’s historic peninsula, affording its guests easy entry to discover Charleston’s charm.
The Dewberry Hotel, both inside and out, is truly a manifestation of John Dewberry’s vision of “Southern Reimagined”. During Mr. Dewberry's eight years of creating The Dewberry, architects and designers aplenty collaborated with him to bring his vision to fruition. Charleston architect, Reggie Gibson’s, decorative metal works adorn The Dewberry’s entry canopy, ballroom roof and rooftop wellness space. Charleston Preservation Designer, Cameron Schwabenton, was an early contributor and her vision is still on display in our luxurious marbled and brass fixtured bathrooms. Landscape architect, DesignWorks, led by Harvard educated principals, Scott Parker and Christophe Drumain, bought into Mr. Dewberry’s vision for simplistic elegance, befitting the building’s sixties era origin. We trust once you enjoy The Dewberry’s lush surroundings and particularly Mr. Dewberry’s re-creation of a walled Charleston garden you too will appreciate the juxtaposition of past with present.
