A beautiful new hotel, the Cambria Charleston Riverview, is nearing the end of its long construction in downtown Charleston. The luxury hotel is the 32nd to be opened in Cambria’s name throughout the country, boasting 1,300 square feet of multi-function meeting space, a full-service bar offering local craft beer, a fitness center, and 126 guest rooms.
It sits along the bank of the scenic Ashley River, across the street from the marina and mere minutes from Charleston’s Historic District; horse carriage rides and buggy tours beckon vacationers to their very doorstep, encouraging newcomers and old acquaintances alike to explore the beauty and history of the popular city. Trevor Stratton, general manager of the Cambria Charleston Riverview, understands that importance.
“Travelers seek out local relevance when choosing hotels and soon, Charleston’s nearly 5 million annual visitors will have a brand-new upscale option that pays tribute to [its] celebrated culture and history when they visit this iconic city.”
Charleston was founded in 1670 and has over 300 years of fascinating history.

The new Cambria Charleston Riverview certainly picked an excellent location to establish itself. Its centrally located positioning provides access to everything that the area offers, including the Medical University of South Carolina and the College of Charleston; parents can easily sleep in style and luxury when they inevitably come to visit their studious children. Brandon Miller, president of RRHEAF Holdings (one of Cambria’s partners), stated:
“Charleston is a very popular destination and we’re looking forward to being an integral part of the local community.”
