Love the atmosphere, decor, thoughtfulness and friendly service. We visit at least twice each year, Christmas and our anniversary, and have yet to be disappointed with any aspect of our stays. Happy to consider ourselves among the patrons of the Planter's Inn.

We had a great stay at Planters Inn this past summer. Super cute hotel, friendly and helpful staff and a great location right across from the open-air market. Close to shopping and lots of bars and restaurants, about a 30 minute drive to the beaches. Loved Charleston and this hotel!

There is no comparison! Perfect location and the height of comfort! We were in the room by 8:00 every night because it was so comfy and relaxing. Coffee in the lobby in the morning and mulled cider in the afternoon were the perfect touch! We won't even consider staying anywhere else.

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
