David Hood

Meet Our Butlers

Meet David, Head Butler

David joined The Spectator as Head Butler in February 2016, following a 15-year career in the casino industry in Atlantic City. An oyster lover and poker player, he happily points arriving guests in the direction of his favorite Charleston oyster bars, plantations (Middleton Place), and attractions, including the Edmondston-Alston House tour. He’s always ready for a day at the beach with his family or dinner at a new restaurant.

Chuck Cooper

Meet Our Butlers

Meet Chuck

A jack of all trades, Chuck is a self-described "Georgia boy" who has sharpened his hospitality skills as a bartender, concierge and tour guide. When he’s not enjoying a Charleston-centric libation with his wife or on a trail run with his beagle, Jelly Bean, he’s often encouraging guests to strike out on a self-guided walking or cycling tour of the city’s beautiful homes, churches and graveyards.

Michelle Smith

Meet Our Butlers

Meet Michelle

A native Charlestonian, Michelle delights in directing first-time visitors to her home town’s hidden alleys, historic gardens, and cobblestone streets. When she’s not sharing her insider tips about local restaurants and favorite attractions with Spectator guests, she’s logging countless hours as a committed volunteer with community organizations that serve the city’s less fortunate.

Alexander Altwater

Meet Our Butlers

Meet Alexander

A one-time naturalist at The Greyfield Inn in Georgia, Alexander was raised in St. Louis and moved to Charleston a year ago, drawn by its nearby beaches, hiking trails, and camping sites. He hit the ground running as a butler, quickly building encyclopedic knowledge of favorite local attractions like Ft. Sumter and Boone Hall. If he’s not at The Spectator working hospitality magic, there’s a good chance he’s working the New York Times crossword puzzle.

Toby Cooen

Meet Our Butlers

Meet Toby

A bartender-turned-butler from North Charleston, Toby is uniquely qualified to introduce the city to visitors of all ages, having lived here for a total of 16 years as a child, teenager, young adult and dad. He enjoys recommending his favorite Charleston restaurants to guests, including 167 Raw and Lewis BBQ, and believes no one gives a better walking tour of Charleston than Mr. Skip Evans.
