Charleston prepares to welcome The Ryder

by | 05 Mar 2021 | Hotel Projects, Projects

Designed in collaboration with Cortney Bishop Design and Goff D’Antonio Associates, The Ryder in South Carolina’s largest city will boast 91 rooms and F&B venues helmed by hospitality group Gin & Luck.

Set to provide a significant boost to Charleston’s upscale hospitality scene, The Ryder will open its doors in spring 2021.

Coastal chic in Charleston

A project from hospitality group Pivot, together with High Street Real Estate Partners and WHI Real Estate Partners, this 91-room property is located in the heart of Charleston’s historic district, offering visitors the ideal base from which to explore the best of the Holy City.

The interiors are the work of local outfits Cortney Bishop Design and Goff D’Antonio Associates, which took their cues from the destination’s laidback but vibrant energy and coastal influences. What emerges is casual and relaxed: custom furnishings – by local brand New Breed Furniture – and vintage finds are revealed through a warm colour palette of earthy tones and light timbers.

Upstairs, the bohemian flair is further highlighted with pieces by coastal artists Ron Royals and Katie Gong and ceramic tumblers from a Charleston-born, West Coast artisan, while amenities include toiletries by Malin & Goetz, plush robes and slippers, and a selection of snacks and refreshments.

Some guestrooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows with sweeping views of the city’s historic quarters, while others have private balconies overlooking the pool deck and courtyard below. For true indulgence, the sprawling 1,045 sq ft Hospitality Suite expands over a living area, powder room, kitchenette and private balcony, and features a king bed and spacious bathroom with glass shower and deep-soaking tub.

F&B powered by Gin & Luck

Behind the hotel’s drinking and dining options is Gin & Luck, the hospitality company behind the city’s much-loved cocktail institution Death & Co. In the lobby is a grab-and-go concept serving coffee and daytime fare, while the mezzanine level above features a cosy vintage-inspired lounge with a fireplace, ideal for a pre-dinner cocktail.

The hotel is anchored by the second-floor courtyard and pool deck – which features a tropical palm art piece by Headspace Murals – that leads to indoor-outdoor bar and restaurant Little Palm. Here, inspired by the laidback vibes of St Tropez, a menu of simple, honest dishes using fresh and seasonal ingredients is complemented by a breezy cocktail menu.

“The Ryder is poised to be the city’s newest social hub for visitors and locals alike,” said Ryan Rauscher, general manager of The Ryder. “Charleston is one of the most beloved travel destinations with such a rich history, incredible dining, and charming inns.

“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.”
