Housed in two original Victorian-style structures dating back to 1843, plus a new building, The Pinch is a new boutique hotel with 22 luxury rooms and suites, plus three fully furnished residences suitable for stays of 30 days or more.

Located in historic Charleston and designed by a Philadelphia-based hospitality company, Co methodin partnership with longtime collaborators Morris Adjmi Architects, the transformation was inspired by the building’s rich past, its location at the intersection of King and George Streets, as well as the building’s existing architecture.

The hotel and restaurants are an assemblage of three buildings with the lobby, spa, and oyster and cocktail bar housed in the former Bob Ellis buildings which were built in 1869 and still feature their original facades on King Street. Rooms and suites are elegant and comfortable, an environment that features traditional materials such as clay, stone, and original wood, fused with modern design elements to create a timeless aesthetic.

King-size beds and kitchens are standard in rooms at the Pinch, with the addition of living rooms in suites. Those who choose to stay a little longer can settle into one of the residences, 1,230 square feet of space including separate bedroom spaces, a relaxing living room with sofa, a fully equipped kitchen and a washer and dryer in the following. Details include Farrow & Ball wallpaper, Aesop bath products, and quirky artwork that includes a few pieces by scientist-turned-artist Kelsey Brookes.

While a good night’s rest is guaranteed, that’s not the only offering here, with the Quinte Oyster House and Pinch Restaurant set to open this summer and offering a jaw-dropping seafood experience in the premier and menu hyper seasonal in the second. . Another winner from the team behind the ROOST Hotel concept, The Pinch continues Charleston’s march towards an internationally recognized design destination.
