Charleston's Andrew Pinckney Inn to be refurbished

The Andrew Pinckney Inn, a circa 1840 boutique hotel overlooking Charleston’s city market and locally managed by Charlestowne Hotels, will undergo extensive remodeling to 32 guestrooms in the Church Street Building (199 Church Street) during the first quarter of 2013. The remodel will conclude in February.

The highlight of the redesign is the complete restyling of the guest bathrooms, which will include floor-to-ceiling hand-laid Italian Travertine porcelain tile showers, granite countertops, Kohler fixtures and spa-quality Gilchrist & Soames bath amenities.

The guestrooms will boast a new color scheme, a move expected to lighten and complement the rich wood furnishings. Renee Anthony, project manager with Haute Design, describes the palette as “spa-like, offering a relaxed and serene feeling.”


Currently, all guest accommodations have been relocated to the Pinckney Street building of the inn located at 40 Pinckney Street, which underwent a renovation of its own in 2010. Guest visiting during the remodel will notice enhanced amenities including valet parking and in-room breakfast tray service to accompany the inn’s current amenities.

Positioned in the heart of Charleston’s historic district in close proximity to restaurants, shops and area attractions, the Andrew Pinckney Inn overlooks the city market and has a three-story, plant filled atrium, landscaped courtyard and a rooftop terrace. Decorated in West Indies style, the 41 room boutique inn offers guestrooms and amenities such as valet parking, concierge services, and complimentary deluxe continental breakfast.
