Venue Spotlight: USS Yorktown

Embark on an adventure to Patriots Point, and host a historic event aboard the USS Yorktown. With unmatched views of the harbor and Charleston’s steeple-dotted skyline, and 42,000 tons of steel underfoot, this unique venue is an unforgettable event location. Commissioned on April 15, 1943, the USS Yorktown (CV-10) was the tenth aircraft carrier to serve in the United States Navy. After earning battle stars in World War II, Vietnam War, and many other missions, the carrier was decommissioned in 1970, and then transferred to Charleston to become the centerpiece of Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum. Available for events year round, the USS Yorktown has scalable venues to host groups of any size. Coupled with state-of-the-art technology and flexible meeting spaces, this historic site creates a dynamic experience. Aboard the ship, guests can mix and mingle throughout the exhibitions, like the coveted Medal of Honor Museum, while taking in the Charleston skyline from the flight deck and hanger. From M.A.S.H and U.S.O themes to patriotic dinners, Belmond Charleston Place Meetings & Events Team has planned it all. Our tenured staff will choose décor that impresses and menus that delight even the pickiest eaters. From the first phone call to final clean-up, we’ll execute every detail to perfection.

What’s New at Belmond Charleston Place

Classic, timeless and steeped in history, Belmond Charleston Place never goes out of style. Considered one of the top luxury hotels in Charleston for almost 30 years, the hotel has remained current and relevant by updating and renovating to further our offerings for guests. As an ode to the everlasting tradition of Belmond Charleston Place, we have rounded up a list of the gorgeous renovations and convenient, new services that were ushered in with 2016.

Perhaps the most impressive update to the hotel is the completion of a $34 million, 3 year renovation of its 434 guest rooms. The renovation truly left no stone unturned, stripping each room down to its bare bones and replacing everything from the ground up. Fresh, new carpet and fully redesigned bathrooms round out the complete redo. The gorgeous rooms and suites reflect a dreamy, light and airy atmosphere coupled with sophisticated, Charleston elegance.

Exclusive, premier and also newly renovated, the Club Level at Belmond Charleston Place is the perfect space to unwind after a long day. Available by private access only, the cosmopolitan lounge is located on the top two floors of the hotel offering the best views of Charleston. A cozy velvet and leather banquette with velour and silk pillows invites you to sit back and relax while enjoying the all-day complimentary food and beverage service. Or, saddle up to the newly expanded bar for a cocktail served by the Club Level’s dedicated staff.

If official business calls you to Charleston, then you’ll want to take note of the sophisticated yet modern Belmond Boardroom. Warm and inviting, a custom-built 15-foot-mahogany conference table is surrounded by oversized, plush executive chairs. Hold your meeting amongst floods of natural light, all while overlooking historic King Street and the beautiful Art Deco Riviera Theater. This new, innovative space is just what the CEO ordered.

Fitness is often hard to maintain when traveling, so our Fitness Center underwent a refreshing update to make working out while away from home a seamless task. Doubling in size, the Fitness Center now includes all new, state-of-the-art equipment. The cardio room consists of exercise bikes, ellipticals and treadmills, including built-in televisions on each machine. Separate from the cardio equipment, the weight room is stocked with everything from free weights to foam rollers, with plenty of room for barre routines or floor exercises.
Belmond Charleston Place is located in the very heart of downtown Charleston, and within walking distance of all the major attractions, making the need for a car nonexistent. For those guests flying into Charleston, the travel process is now even easier with a convenient airport transportation system. Running from the hotel to the Charleston airport every half hour from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily, the shuttle is quick, easy and eliminates the worry of securing and parking a rental car.
Discover all of these new amenities on your next trip to Charleston by taking advantage of The Grand Reveal Package. Enjoy 20% off Club Level rooms and suites, a complimentary bottle of champagne and a $100 credit to be spent at The Spa at Belmond Charleston Place, or any of the hotel’s dining options, for travel now through May 31, 2016.
