The Palms Oceanfront Hotel opens after complete renovation

Located on Isle of Palms, SC, The Palms Oceanfront Hotel offers guests unparalleled ocean views in a now completely renovated space.


ISLE OF PALMS, SC, October 20, 2017—The Palms Oceanfront Hotel opens to the public December 1 after renovating all 57 guest rooms and suites, as well as all public spaces, including the lobby and corridors. Highlights of the oceanfront hotel’s top-to-bottom renovation include a new pool deck with outdoor showers, a stylish lobby and breakfast bar, and all-new guest rooms with whitewashed finishes, and granite bathrooms. Venturing away from the frenetic downtown Charleston hubbub, guests will immediately feel at ease in a sanctuary like space achieved through nautical textures, reclaimed woods, and classic lines. The new lobby features an organic color palette inspired by the barrier island and surrounding Intracoastal Waterway: driftwood greys, sandy creams, and ocean blues.

The Palms Oceanfront Hotel’s transformation pays homage to its surroundings, capturing the energy and evolution of the area’s thriving marshlands, dynamic culture, and celebrated history, while still introducing modern elements and sophisticated-yet-playful amenities for an enriching experience for leisure and business travelers alike. In keeping with The Palms’ commitment to the community, the hotel selected Charleston-local firms to lead both design and construction efforts. Interiors were designed by Mt. Pleasant-based firm Amy Trowman Designs, while construction was managed by Cooper River Contracting.  

Managed by Charleston based hotel management company, Charlestowne Hotels, the renovation served as an opportunity to address past guest concerns. “We value our guests’ opinions and are grateful for their feedback, which we strove to address during the renovations,” explained Charlestowne Hotels President and COO, Michael Tall. Such improvements include fully renovated guestrooms with new flooring, furniture, and finishings, as well as completely upgraded bathrooms. Guests also can look forward to a revamped, upgraded breakfast.

The Palms Oceanfront Hotel will open its newly renovated doors December 1st, with special introductory rates up to 20% OFF. For more information and hotel bookings, visit
