Wedding Rehearsal Dinner
Hotel Bennett is absolutely gorgeous and offers impeccable service. Working with Lindsay Forseth, Director of Catering and Conference Sales was such a pleasure. She is incredibly organized, responsive, flexible and always cheerful and positive. She was happy to assist us as we made many decisions such as our cocktail hour appetizers, dinner menu, and desserts from a long list of delicious choices.Sent on 06/08/2019
The Grit Cake with Cajun Shrimp as well as the Boursin Cheese and Proscuitto Topped with Bradied Cherries served at the cocktail hour were fantastic.
The bar package served during the cocktail hour and dinner included a wide variety of wine, beer and liquor options. Tea and coffee were also provided during dinner.
Our guest were offered a prefuncton choice of an entree- beef tenderloin or salmon. Also served was a delicious salad, warm bread and butter, sautéed spinach, lyonnaise potatotoes, mushrooms, and a crowd favorite- fried brussel sprouts. A trio of plated desserts prepared by the hotel's pastry chef included salted caramel cream puffs, mixed berry tarts and chocolate duchess.
The hotel guest room accommodations are second to none at Hotel Bennett. The entire Hotel Bennett staff from the front desk, concierge, security, guest services, spa, housekeeping, valet, rooftop, catering, restaurant and bar are all so proud of the hotel and will exceed your expectations.
We highly recommend Hotel Bennett. It is an excellent venue for a wedding rehearsal dinner or wedding reception.

My wedding (April 28, 19) at Hotel Bennett was spectacular. The venue, it’s location, staff, food, and customer service is superb. The only issue I ran into, is the bride and groom didn’t have a room booked (we booked months in advance) and we waited an hour for one which put us behind schedule with rehearsal but everything worked out and they did their best to accommodate us. The event manager was easy to work with and always willing to help from start to finish. Very professional and kind individual- Lindsay Forseth. The best part, the rooftop pool overlooking Charleston is amazing, we had our cocktail hour there. The rooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable. Highly recommend this place if you are looking for quality and excellent service. I’ve searched many venues in Charleston for my wedding, and I think Hotel Bennet has everything you need for a special day. Our day was unforgettable.Sent on 06/13/2019

A Perfect Wedding- Hotel Bennett
My husband and I have nothing but glowing things to say about the venue and staff at Hotel Bennett.

Day of, she was fantastic keeping the day running smoothly and communicating with our vendors.Sent on 03/17/2019
The Hotel Bennett staff and level of service was the upmost impressive during our wedding weekend. Our guests continually commented and complimented on how helpful, friendly and professional every interaction with the staff was, including at our wedding reception.
Guests complemented our food and beverage selection for both the cocktail hour and reception. Hotel Bennett accommodated every food allergy and provided alternatives as required. We did not feel constricted by our menu options and LOVED our wedding cake that was provided by the pastry chef.
We had such a positive experience with Hotel Bennett and loved our weekend!
