South Carolina boutique hotel features 91 rooms and suites and is set to open May 1

March 15, 2021

The Ryder, a new boutique hotel, is set to open this spring in the Historic District of Charleston, SC.

The Ryder’s “eased yet sophisticated style” incorporates artisanal details accented by hand-crafted furniture mixed with modern décor and vintage finds. Design inspiration is drawn from the city’s distinctive relaxed but vibrant energy and proximity to the coast.

Some of the 91 guestrooms and suites feature floor-to-ceiling windows with sweeping views of the city’s historic quarters, while others offer French doors that lead to covered balconies overlooking the pool deck and courtyard below. Signature Malin & Goetz bath amenities are complemented by plush robes and slippers. Accommodations also feature a curated selection of snacks and refreshments.

The Ryder’s dining experiences have been developed by Gin & Luck. Guests are greeted in the lobby with a lively coffee bar and café. The hotel’s main focal point and social hub is the second-floor courtyard and pool deck.

“Charleston is one of the most beloved travel destinations with such a rich history, incredible dining, and charming inns,” said Ryan Rauscher, general manager of The Ryder. “At the Ryder, we wanted to create something different and new that genuinely adds to the city’s appeal. With the collaborative vision of our acclaimed design and culinary partners, we’ve done just that.”

Reservations for stays beginning May 1, are now being accepted.
