Entrepreneurial inspiration
Charleston’s reputation for Southern hospitality is our inspiration. As we are steps away from nationally recognized restaurants, world-class museums, the historic Charleston City Market and less than a mile from the iconic Rainbow Row, we want to welcome guests into the hotel with warmth and kindness. 

Your brand in one sentence
We are an inviting oasis for the independent, fun-loving, and creatively curious traveler located in the heart of Charleston, SC.

South’s most stylish because…
The hotel’s artisanal details and fresh, modern design conjure the beauty of the Lowcountry coast. The Ryder is an antidote to the ordinary — nurturing genuine connections — and engaging neighbors and explorers near and far. It is a reflection of Southern cool. Charleston-based interior designer Cortney Bishop designed the hotel’s interiors using a palette of warm earth tones, bold mosaics, light-stained woods and vibrant textiles.

Finding inspiration
Our passion for great food and drinks, culture, conversation, and authentic connection is the source of our collective energy. The buzz of creativity, the hum of conversation, the breeze through the bougainvillea — it’s all music to our ears and inspiration for all we do.

Plans for the future
We plan to focus our future on cultivating memorable experiences for all!

Secret to success
Providing a unique experience is our secret to success. There are a lot of options in Charleston, but you can only get this experience at The Ryder. We are setting ourselves apart from the pack.

“The Ryder is the antidote to the ordinary – a welcoming place that inspires genuine connections with neighbors and explorers, near and far.”
– Irvin Dinkle, GM
