Tastefully done with great staff. Location is easy to walk to lots of touring and F&B. Take a private horse/carriage tour. Great food at the hotel as well. Front desk staff knew how to help when needed.

I was very excited to visit Charleston SC and stay at the Planter's Inn. This was my first trip to Charleston and recently visited with my daughter. While we loved Charleston, the Planter's Inn was a huge disappointment. When we checked in, there was no customer service, no information was forthcoming on the amenities of the hotel to the point...

Took my wife to the Penninsula Grill for her birthday. Gorgeous day - we got there early for our reservation so we decided to have champagne in the court yard by the pool/ fountains. It was so enjoyable we ate outside in the courtyard as well. Service was impeccable and the quality of food couldn't be better. The restaurant was...

Our room, which was a junior suite, was spacious, beautifully furnished and very comfortable. The hotel staff was, as expected, very helpful. For the price, I would have liked breakfast to have been included. However, if you don't want to eat at the excellent Peninsula Restaurant in the hotel, there are lots of nearby breakfast places and coffee shops. We...

We stayed here for a five nights. The staff is gracious and accommodating. Our room was a suite with a large living room and a bedroom. The furnishings are very traditional; a four poster bed so high off the ground that room includes steps so you can get into it. The hotel is located on N. Market Street directly across...

Dear Sbstee, It is always a pleasure to host guests for five or more nights, like yourself. It gives you a chance to truly discover the many charms of Charleston.

This is a return visit, though I do not think I got around to writing a review last summer. It was (again) wonderful. The front desk staff are very helpful and the hotel itself is spacious and well appointed. Little touches like the cheese wafers and iced tea set out in the afternoon or the mini scones at night are...

This hotel is lovely, and situated in the center of the historic area. You can walk everywhere- and charleston is a real walking and historic city. Our only criticism is that the front desk concierge service was fair. They were not knowledgeable about restaurant, activity and time schedules as you would expect for a top notch city hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Holding court in the very heart of Charleston's famed Historic District, the 64-room Planters Inn Relais & Châteaux is the city's iconic grande dame hotel. Uniformed doormen welcome every arrival, ushering guests inside the gloriously restored circa 1844 building to a sanctuary of elegant style and genteel service. Voted #1 Best U.S. Boutique Hotel by readers of Travel + Leisure magazine, Planters Inn is a world of civility, sumptuous cuisine, and cultural pursuits. Soaring ten-foot ceilings, dozens of working fireplaces, and a stunning collection of antiques and Baker Historic Charleston décor, including a sumptuous four poster bed in every guest room, create a luxurious ambiance described by Travel + Leisure as "akin to an overnight with well-to-do friends in their old Charleston mansion." Hushed tones of buttercream, Lowcountry greens, and pale powder blue paint the walls, while raw silk fabrics frame the windows. There's also more to Planters Inn than meets the eye: A hidden courtyard illuminated by flickering carriage lanterns provides a beguiling entry to Peninsula Grill, the city's foremost dining experience. Planters Inn and Peninsula Grill are longstanding members of Relais & Châteaux, the exclusive collection of luxury boutique hotels and gourmet restaurants located in the world's most romantic, most cultured, and most memorable destinations. Are you excited for your getaway to Charleston? We are excited to welcome you to Planters Inn. ... more   less
