Echoing Charleston’s historic charm and architectural grace, The Dewberry has become a sought-after venue for all seeking timeless elegance. As with every experience at the hotel, the venues for meetings and special events are Charleston’s best in class.
The ballroom, a work of art. A canvas in which to paint. Step into a vision of beauty prepared and thoughtfully curated to envelop the sense of luxury, warmth and elegance for all who enter. The central focal point of the room, the Viennese cast brass and crystal chandelier housed in 16’ troweled plaster ceilings, balances the scape of antique mirrors, French doors, Douglas Balentine artwork and the Walled Garden that awaits beyond.
Looking beyond the classic Charleston Ballroom, is the walled garden containing 2,250 square feet of stunning space. The Charleston live oak, ivy covered historic brick walls, and bluestone walkways make the garden the ideal space for any gathering.
THE SWANSTON ROOM
In about 5 seconds, you can turn 360 degrees and experience all the cranes gracing the panels of The Dewberry’s Swanston Room. This precious, gilded room of movement and light tells a story of migration, of mystical movement through time and space, from one location to another, with an ultimate return home.
Gilded with silver, pewter and 22-carat gold, this piece of art by Thomas Swanston is inspired by the half million Sandhill Cranes that migrate through the Rowe Sanctuary in Nebraska—the largest annual migration in North America. The 22 panels at The Dewberry feel as though they have been preserved from an older home, then re-installed and creatively reimagined—much like The Dewberry itself.
