From before we arrived with the confirmation phone call all the way till our car was retrieved by the valet it was all perfect. The front desk, house keeping and the bell hop were super helpful and friendly. The Restaurant was the best of our trip.

We had a most enjoyable stay. I would and will stay at Planters Inn again. I was impressed at how the desk staff helped us with any question we had for them. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. I especially liked the turn down service each evening.

This is a wonderful hotel right in the center of everything in the heart of Charleston. We would go back again and again and stay at the Planter's Inn. The charm and hospitality is enough of a draw but the service is also terrific and don't miss the restaurant in the hotel for breakfast and dinner.

The Planters Inn is in a great location in the historic part of downtown Charleston. This hotel provides a delightful experience for guests. The onsite restaurant is one of the best, my only criticism is there is not a lunch option on property. The patio dining is a great venue for breakfast, weather permitting.

Stayed in Room 101 - next to lobby on first floor and at street level. Had to keep blinds and shades closed when in room or people walking on street could see right into room. Room size and decor were very nice. A/C worked perfectly. Bathroom larger than average - shower pressure and volume was awful. Wife could not wash...

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
