My wife and I are on a motorcycle trip down the eastern seaboard. We came to Charleston to visit friends and while looking for a hotel I asked her to find one that is in the historic district and hang the cost. She found the Planters Inn which was not the highest this trip (Bar Harbor took those honors). We...

We were greeted by a warm smile as we pulled in front of the hotel. The doorman greeted us and immediately took our luggage and parked our car. The checkin process was simple and our room was lovely. We enjoyed our time at the Inn and highly recommend it!

Close to everything. Check-In was easy and we were greeted like celebrities. The only inconvenient thing is you must valet. The valet was excellent, but if you forget something, you feel bad making the valet go get your car for 5 seconds. Check out was even easier and the car was ready. We didn't try the restaurant.

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
