Bethesda, Md., August 27, 2015Autograph Collection Hotels, Marriott International’s curated portfolio of hotels recognized for celebrating individuality, is pleased to welcome the newest hotel from The Kessler Collection to its portfolio – Grand Bohemian Hotel Charleston in South Carolina. This is the first South Carolina hotel for The Kessler Collection and for Autograph Collection Hotels. The Autograph Collection Hotels portfolio now includes 10 of The Kessler Collection’s 11 artistically inspired boutique hotels and restaurants. With 89 hotels worldwide and growing, Autograph Collection anticipates welcoming its 100th hotel by the end of 2015.

“This year Autograph Collection Hotels has significantly expanded its portfolio to include Triada Palm Springs, Cotton House Hotel in Barcelona, The Press Hotel in Portland, Maine, The Mayflower in Washington, D.C. and Kameha Grand Zurich, with a steady stream of other new hotels being added across the globe,”  said Julius Robinson, Vice President, Autograph Collection Hotels. “We are excited to add this latest Kessler property to Autograph Collection Hotels and appreciate their strong commitment to our brand. Autograph Collection Hotels is proud to have a total of 10 Kessler Collection properties in its global portfolio.”

Located in the heart of Charleston’s Historic District, the 50-room luxury boutique hotel incorporates diverse offerings including an on-site Grand Bohemian Gallery featuring rare, local and original artwork, a wine blending experience and tasting room with curated selections, specialty coffee shop with micro-roasted coffee, farm-to-table culinary offerings with a regional focus, as well as a rooftop restaurant and terrace providing unmatched views of historic Charleston. . In a city where no building can be taller than the church steeples, few establishments offer this caliber of view and superior location, just steps away from famed Kings St. in the historic district.

Coined as a Southern Renaissance-style hotel, Grand Bohemian Hotel Charleston is bathed in French elements combined with classical European lines all with a modern bohemian twist. Guests are greeted in the lobby with 4-foot long fringe chandeliers, a custom backlit stone front desk and velvet drapery. Guest rooms, washed in lavender with splashes of shades of grey and chartreuse as the anchors, boast rich printed drapery, and leather chaise lounges. The bathrooms are appointed with marble vanities that stylishly contrast with custom glass sconces and Italian plank tiled floors.

The dining selection reflects Charleston’s low-country backdrop with a garden-inspired rooftop terrace, draped in crystal chandeliers, aquamarine watercolor sheers, and grey washed reclaimed wood. Featuring an assortment of handcrafted cocktails, coastal cuisine and open-air seating, the restaurant overlooks the historic district. Additionally, Grand Bohemian Hotel Charleston offers a one-of-a-kind wine blending experience. During a 90-minute interactive experience, guests have the opportunity to make and take home their own customized wine blend and create a personalized label.

At the heart of each Kessler Collection hotel is a celebration of the artistic spirit. Surrounded by the cultural and creative inspiration of Charleston, the property is home to the largest art gallery in The Kessler Collection – Grand Bohemian Gallery, featuring local, regional and internationally recognized artists. At Grand Bohemian Hotel Charleston, art flows throughout the hotel with exhibitions and artist receptions showcasing paintings, sculptures, art glass, ceramics and jewelry, all available for sale.

For the fourth year, Conde Nast Traveler has voted Charleston the No. 1 U.S. City, and No. 2 in the World, in addition to Travel + Leisure ranking Charleston the No. 1 City in the U.S. for the second consecutive year. Located at the corner of Wentworth and Meeting Streets, Grand Bohemian Hotel Charleston is in the center of local landmarks, shopping and dining.
