Ground Broken for Grand Bohemian Hotel Charleston


Developers broke ground on a 50-room, four-story boutique hotel in downtown Charleston today.

Grand Bohemian Hotel Charleston, which will be The Kessler Collection’s newest property, is expected to open at 55 Wentworth St. in the first quarter of 2015. Richard Kessler, chairman and CEO of The Kessler Collection, said the project will cost between $25 million and $30 million, and the hotel will hire around 100 employees.

It will include an on-site 1,100-square-foot art gallery, 3,000 square feet of meeting and event space, a wine blending and tasting room, fitness center, coffee shop and cafe, library lounge, and a rooftop restaurant, bar and terrace.

Kessler said he had begun considering building a hotel in Charleston more than 15 years ago, but he struggled finding the right location. He finally found the spot about a year and a half ago.
