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.
A work of art. A canvas on which to paint. A nod to old Charleston specifically designed for luxury warmth and elegance—from the Viennese cast-brass-and-crystal chandelier housed in the room’s 16’ troweled plaster ceilings to the antique mirrors, French doors, Douglas Balentine artwork and Walled Garden beyond.
With 1,800 square feet of space, the Ballroom accommodates events up to 160 people.
Adjacent to the classic Ballroom is the Walled Garden, 2,250 square feet of Charleston live oaks, ivy-covered historic brick walls and bluestone walkways. This unique space accommodates 150 guests alone, and 300 guests in combination with the Ballroom.
THE SWANSTON ROOM
Enveloped by 22 hand-painted, gilded panels, this light-filled room tells a story of migration, of magical movement through time and space, from one location to another, with an ultimate return home. The works of art, made of silver, pewter and 22-karat gold by Thomas Swanston, are inspired by the half-million Sandhill Cranes that migrate through the Rowe Sanctuary in Nebraska—the largest annual migration in North America. Together, they feel like a collection preserved from grand old home, then re-installed and creatively reimagined inside the hotel.
