We always stay at the Planter's Inn when we're in Charleston! It's location is excellent as you are in walking distance to many of the city's attractions! The newly renovated rooms & suites are beautifully and tastefully decorated and appointed! The staff, from the Hotel Manager to the Bellboys are highly professional, helpful and informative. The Peninsula Grill, the hotel's...

I stayed at the Planters in for 3 nights in April and it was perfect. The hotel is across the street from the market and the staff is wonderful. The hotel and guest rooms are beautifully decorated with no detail forgotten. I would suggest eating at the restaurant Peninsula Grill; the food and service are extraordinary!

Normally I would say that Planter's Inn is a Lovely Boutique Hotel and first rate property having stayed her in the past. This visit was a bit of a disappointment in that we found the upholstery in our Governor's Suite, which one would expect to be premium, to be worn and downright filthy. We were moved to a new suite,...

Planters inn was once one of very few luxury hotels in Charleston. They have not kept up with the times in amenities or service. Very clean but the rooms need to be updated. The service is nothing special. Little things - I asked to see one of the new suites. Desk clerk said ok but later in the day would...

We were in Charleston on a leisure trip. We have stayed in many Relais & Chateaux properties and have never been disappointed - until now. We had a penthouse room with a balcony which overlooked the market. It was great to enjoy morning coffee or a bottle of wine on the balcony. The hotel is in a prime location, close...

Excellent value in a superb location in downtown Charleston. Peninsula Grill is a first rate dining destination. Welcoming staff that represents the best of Southern hospitality. Would not consider staying any place else on our next visit.

The Planters Inn is very well situated for easy access to the sights and experiences of historic Charlestown. The rooms are well kept and the four poster beds very comfortable. A charming patio made for delightful breakfasts to start the day.

Our second visit to Charleston and staying 5 nights at the Planter's Inn was as lovely an experience as our first last year. Attentive service from the bellmen to the housekeepers and the wait staff at the terrific Peninsula Grill. Two delicious dinner's ended with their signature coconut cake. Just scrumptious! Museums, restaurants and the wonderful house and garden tour...

The best place to stay in Charleston. We have spent a night or two there every spring the last 5 years. I wish I could live there. There rooms are great. Location could not be better. Up to Relais & Chateaux standards.

This is a smaller boutique hotel with a good restaurant and excellent staff. The rooms are nice and comfortable. The down side of this hotel is minimal amenities. Overall it was a good choice, walking distance from many local attractions and restaurants.

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
